    I keep getting a red "duplicate" on an article I have re-written and made changes on.  Should I dele

    Should I delete my hub with the "duplicate" warning?  I have wonderful comments from this hub. Hate to delete it. Have re-written it twice now. Any options for me other than to rewrite it again?

    You can leave it up, the hubscore takes a hit but that is all. I have a couple of duplicate articles too

    You can delete it, or you can use copyscape and change the parts that are duplicates, it's easy.

    But personally I think that you and anyone else here should provide unique content. I have written dozens of articles on the exact same topic and with the same message, but they are always different in nature and the angle of writing, so they are not rewrites. I learn the subject and than I can write about it over and over again without the fear of having a duplicate.

    I've had some of these, and when you rewrite the words, then republish it, then they will usually be fixed up. Good luck

    It would be totally your call, if it is a well written hub I would not worry about it so much. Just make sure you don't have too much duplicate content and you will be fine.
