Why do I now have duplicate next to one of my hubs?? they're my own recipes !
you might have two of the same hubs or you might have put it on another site or blog somewhere and hub bots found it. Just change the title and text a bit and it should be fine
The title of your article may be not unique, or you have quote some sentences from others.
i've had the same thing happen and it makes no sense. if someone else wrote an article about the same thing it doesn't make it a duplicate unless you used their words but rather it makes it your opinion or idea.
Try using Copyscape.com or you may copy and paste parts of your article into a search and see if you can find it elsewhere on the net
thanks guys, i think the problem was that i had posted my article somewhere else, so i just deleted it from the other site. hopefully they'll re publish it
You know, at one point here on one of my hubs - I'd typed something out, and it came up claiming that it was duplicate. I couldn't believe it. I was super shocked. Sometimes I'd copy/pasted a paragraph of something somewhere, etc - and of course I knew that that was something on another site.
Bottom line here is that we are dealing with machines before a moderator has seen anything. There are plenty of words in the English language, and we can always word something a bit differently and leave it saying almost exactly, or exactly the same thing.

So, this is the third time HP has snipped Amazon from my hubs. Every time one of my Hubs is edited by HubPages to add to a network site they snip any Amazon capsules on the Hub. The Amazon capsule is always extremely...
