It seems most of my new hubs lately are flagged as duplicates. How do I write a hub, and not get flagged. New information is very hard to attain with the internet being such as it is....what do you do?
If you write the article using most of your own words then it should not be a duplicate.
I tried, but I guess this is not easy when your subject is not so diverse. I am coming to realize that health subjects are not good hub material, cuz, facts are the same no matter who writes it.
I will admit I do write for another article site, Helium, and sometimes I do post an article to Hubpages if I am interested enough in the subject. I always totally rewrite the article, a thesaurus comes in very handy on these occasions and then I run it through a plagiarism checker. Just to make sure. I find that doing this sorts out most problems. Hope my answer was helpful.
Hubpages team is a very resourceful team so when you write something came from an internet sites they can detect it easily. So, just write your own....
I would say use copyscape before posting your articles to hub.
Try to be real and also try to write your own articles. Infact i also seems the same problem while i know that all the wording is mine. But i also try to remove all the mistakes from my articles, so now i am not facing this problem..
Make sure your hubs do not have identical capsules in them. For instance, let's say you have three articles, one about corn, one about apple pie, and the other about ginger root. They are all different and original, but in each one you have a, "About: Xanzacow section" and it is exactly the same on each hub.
This is bad.
You could be flagged for duplicate content and the publication will be blocked. This may not be the issue, but it's worth checking.
thanks for @carrierichard for leading me to the site copyscape.
Sometimes ago, I wrote one hubpage and for some reason I deleted the same. Later after a week or so, I put up the same content, then it was marked as duplicate!
Is there a way that we can tell and prove that certain article is ours, but only it is published in another place as well!

I was reading a Hub on Hubpages, and was concerned to read the advice that the content we use in our Hubs should be unique, not something we've posted elsewhere on the net.I started out on Helium and have nearly 200 articles on that site. When I joined HubPages, I saw it as a great opportunity to...

I notice several disgruntled Hubbers on Eric's new Hub, saying they're leaving HubPages because of the duplicate content flags.They seem to be misunderstanding what the dup content flag is all about - either they think they're being penalized, or that the flag means they have to delete the Hub.I...

I was on another thread and someone said many people sign up on HubPages, but very few go on to write a substantial number of quality Hubs.I wonder why this is and what HubPages can do to encourage people to stay on and improve their Hubs, which seems to be what they want.All my Hubs were recently...

One of my hubs has duplicate written underneath it. I contacted hubpages saying it should be unique. Will they check it out, and if it is just a conflict of popular terminology remove the duplicate marker. Or will I have to change the content

Hi, I published an article (which was my original content) on ezine articles about a week ago and then changed the form and content around a bit and published it on HubPages today but it has come up with a duplicate marker. I then trawled through my article and changed it round again and...
