I just got a warning about my hub being a duplicate? Has this happened to anyone else?
I researched and wrote a hub all on my own and now received a "duplicate" message from Hub Pages. I don't get it. Does this mean that someone copied something from my hub? I credited all sources I used.
Yes, just about all of us at one time or another get a "Duplicate Content" message! No worries; easy to fix!
From a HubPages perspective "Duplicate Content" means that something significant in your Hub is already posted on the Internet somewhere else!
I run into this because I do book reviews! If I put too many quotes in my Hub from the book I am reviewing, even with the authors permission, I am tagged for "Duplicate Content!"
Go back and look at your Hub from that perspective and I bet it jumps right out at you!
If not, sometimes there is an error and HubPages is happy to review it!
Hope that helps! Blessings always, Earth Angel!
thanks, that explains it, I did use heavy quotes in relation to original content
yes that means you have the hub on another site or perhaps what you wrote someone else perhaps have something close to it.

Over the past couple of months I've been slowly reorganizing my content by niche. This means moving Hubs from one subdomain to another, as well as moving content from elsewhere on the web to HubPages. More often than not, each time I try to move a Hub I trigger the darn duplicate content...

I am doing a 20 "such and such" quotes about "such and such" hub. I even went back in after they marked it duplicate and made sure 400 of the words are my words, even though I know people googling it aren't going to want to read my words and are instead just going to be coming...

I have just written a hub last night, about a singer, who has never been written about before, apart from on her own YouTube site, and I have been wacked with a duplicate warning and unpublished!!! How on earth can it be duplicate when the whole hub came out of my brain? On top of this it says it...

Why does my hub keep saying it is a duplicate? It is my work. I even made many changes many times.I deleted it, rewrote it and tried to publish it again, after having made many changes. Still it says duplicate. It should not say this. It is my work.
