What is duplicate content?


When I get flagged for duplicate content, it kind of breaks my heart, especially when I write something that is totally original - no quotes, no links, etc. I see so many "duplicate" hub oriented hubs and wonder why they exist without being flagged as duplicate content. I am almost afraid to write for fear of being banned from HubPages (a little warning included with the duplicate content citation). Why is my original content flagged as duplicate content? Have you had this experience, too?

    #2 makes a lot of sense. Now, with that in mind I do see a lot of hubs about hubs with people sharing the same information over and over again. Oh well, I'm learning my way around. HP is still a good place to be.

    Oh yeah. I have had to do that, too. I'm figuring out that HubPages wants more of a "personal" spin on hubs - not just information, but sharing how we are personally related to the information.
