At times my original hubs are flagged and stated to be duplicate. Now what should i do about it?. They are not dupliacte ones but totally originals.
Those are automatic flags, which means the HubPages system detects content that is already present somewhere else on the Internet.
This can come from re-using text that you wrote yourself but already have posted somewhere else, it can happen when a user plagiarizes someone's work, or it can happen if you write a Hub that is using a lot of quoted material (excerpts from books , song lyrics, etc)
You either need to fix the content to be totally fresh and unique to that Hub, cut down on the quotes (or increase the unique text in relation to them) or contact admin and have them review the Hub manually if you feel it really is a flag in error.
