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.
