I have just published a hub with my own prose previously posted on Gather. Why am I flagged?
I have just published a hub with prose I had previously posted on the site Gather. This is my own writing. How come my hub has been flagged?
If you are talking about a "duplicate" flag - it's because the prose has been published before. Hubpages does not make allowances for you publishing your material a second time. It may be your work; but, if you have published it previously on the web, Hubpages will flag it.
What pippap said is 100% correct. In additional to HubPages flagging you for duplicate content, your Google ranking will also be hurt because Google sees the second publication as non-original content.
