Duplicate Content

    How do we find out where our content is supposedly located on other sites? It happens sometimes when I write original poetry. The hubs are unpublished for duplicate content. I've used Copyscape in the past for a company I worked for. Sometimes if the setting was too high, it flagged duplicate content for common phrases or wording even if the subject matter was original. Is this what is happening?

      "Duplicate content" on HubPages usually means that the article is already published on a website somewhere.

      It has to be a substantial part of the Hub so it is not picking up on common phrases.

      Could it be that you already published those poems on another site and you've forgotten about it, or thought they had been deleted and they haven't?

        No. I added two more poems to the hub and then it was cleared for publication. It had to be something in the phrasing I used.
