I take pride in trying to have original material on my hubs and that is why I take so long researching and writing my hubs before I publish. However, I just discovered a Hub on the same subject I wanted to write about. My Hub goes into much more detail than the other Hub and yet it is VERY similar. What do I do? Scratch the Hub I been writing?
I want to play by the rules, but I also want to publish this hub! Any feedback will be greatly appreciated!
If it is original and a worthwhile article then just write it. They will get ranked accordingly. Just because someone has written a book on exercise it doesn't stop other from doing so!
Write about it your content I am certain is unique from there content.
Thanks for the feedback- I will haft to change the title because they are identical. That sucks! LOL
Post it brother, I've found more then a few Hubs that were posted by people that commented on my Hubs then wrote ones startlingly similar to my own, but that's the nature of the site. You will be rated on your own merit regardless.

I posted a hub on avoiding plagiarism and different types of citation styles.Many have asked for more things to do to prevent plagiarism so I wrote this up. I hope this is not considered bad form on the forum to post a link to the hub. If it is, please accept my apology in advance and I will gladly...

I am not going to drag up the recent massive plagiarism activity again, but - as you know Maddie - I have found that quite a lot of my hubs have been de-indexed and my traffic here is dropping despite publishing new work and despite actively promoting myself outside of hubpages. I realize that it...
