I feel like this is a last resort...and I'm very very confused.
So, for the past 5 years, I have been working to finally get my essay, essentially called "Six Reasons," published on a website. I had some success, and a few sites have agreed to.
However now I have decided to re-edit and re-format my essay into a more interesting and interactive blog on HubPages.
When I got the first error message saying that "Six Reasons" was a duplicate, I went to the two sites that I knew published my essay and told them to remove them. However, even after doing that, and after seriously editing "Six Reasons," the same error message appear.
I'm getting frustrated, because there seems to be no clear way to contact the HubPages administrators and ask them which sites that "Six Reasons" is published on, so that I may remove them.
What should I do at this point? I really want to publish this essay, but I do not want my account revoked for not knowing where else my essay is published. I don't even know if someone might have copy and posted my essay somewhere else. It could be stolen, and I have no clue.
Hello Acdashford, welcome to HP.
One of the things you need to realize about publishing online is that you cannot publish the same work more than once without running the risk of being penalized. The search engines index your work and having two or more of the same article online tells the search engines that one or more of them have been duplicated.
So said. When you remove content from a website it takes a while to be completely removed from search due to what is known as caching. A cache is where webpages are stored for a period of time for various reasons so it can be accessed even if the site is down or something.
You need to make sure you unpublish from all other sources online. Make sure no one has stolen it and then you wait for a minimum of two weeks for all caches to be cleared before reposting here.
You also need to know that Hubpages is not a blog and that Hubpages prefers fresh original content that has never been published anywhere else on the internet, even if it belongs to you.
Cardisa has given a thorough explanation already but I'd like to add something more.
HubPages is not a blog. The navigation on HubPages is designed to encourage readers to browse widely across the site. If you look at any Hub, you'll see there are many links to Hubs by other people, and only two to Hubs by the same Hubber - which are not particularly prominent.
That means that if you're writing a series and strongly want your reader to stay with you, HubPages navigation works against that. You will need to counteract that by including prominent links to the other essays in each Hub.
My question is...how do I find out which sites my essay might be posted on?
You can check using a free plagiarism checker like Copyscape or copy a paragraph of your essay, paste it in "quotes" in your browser search and click search. If the text of your paragraph shows up in any place you did not authorize, you can rest assured it was copied by someone. "Remember to place the paragraph in quotes for it to show exact matches."

Does Google hate HubPages? I've never seen any search term return even a single hub in Google search results. Have you?
