So, I've been putting the Hub team's hard work to good use, chasing down some folks who have appropriated content from my hubs without permission.
How often do those dupe content scans/alerts update? I'm asking in regards to the fact that I've successfully gotten a few other sites to take down my plagiarized work, but my Hubs are still showing the alert that content is duplicated.
How long will it take those alerts to clear once the offending pages come down?
Don't bother answering this, Paul.
Since it's been two days, it's obvious that HubPages gets their alerts from whether or not Google still has the content in their cache and doesn't actually look at the offending, or formerly offending, website.
At the same time you ask that your content be removed request that they update their robots.txt to exclude the offending page, otherwise the page could survive in the Google cache for months.
We recheck hubs every couple weeks. Eventually the notice should drop off if all the copied pages are removed, but it may take some time. At some point we'll either speed this up, or add an "ignore" button that removes the warning on a per url basis.
Hi and glad to see the topic;
I am not clear on posting content from another website, even if it is your own. Not sure if the guide isnt clear about it, or if I want it to not be clear.
I am trying to get through the guides and trying to study the practices of HP.
Is it a sin to post duplicate content if it is your own? I sure dont want 10 Hail Marys or 20 Our Fathers to stall me! Yet, wanna make progress.
Thanks for your advice.

How do I report duplicate content?I spent a fair amount of time searching titles of my own articles and found an alarming amount of duplicate content. Apparently my content has been copied by hundreds of people with failed attempts to change the wording of the content effectively. I identified the...

Two of my hubs needs revisions before republication because of duplicate content. But what if those hubs are just similar to the articles I myself have previously published in the net before? So basically I'm not copying anybody else's work, because both are mine. Is that allowed here? If not, how...

ok ... so if we copy content from another site on to a hub, it won't get published .. fair enough and I agree. However, if someone copies our content, we get an alert but our hub won't get unpublished as it's not our fault. So what is to stop us copying our own hubs onto a blog of our own ???Jus'...
