    What does "duplicate" mean?

    I logged in to my HubPage account and staring at me were bold red letters under one of my hubs saying "duplicate".

    It means it has the same content as one that their bots have found elsewhere on the WWW.

    Ah ok I see now. I understand it's a warning of some kind that lowers the hubscore. The problem is that, of course it shares the same content with another site; two or three actually, and nearly word-for-word. The original author who wrote the story elsewhere on the web is the one and only me. Though they're pretty difficult to find.

    Would that also correspond to the title?

    Marcus, only if you want to get paid for your hubs will it make a difference. I mean really, facts are facts and are and always have been duplicated. I don't worry about it, the folks that read my hubs seem to like them and have no idea that it appeared anywhere else.
