What do you do when Hubpages claims that your hub is a substandard duplicate?
Recently Hubpages claimed two of my hubs were substandard duplicates. I understand what it means, as I did research. However, I did not copy or spin anything in the hubs. They were simple game reviews of games I have played and enjoyed. I'm positive the spelling and grammar in both hubs were up to par as I proofread them and had someone else proofread them. I emailed hubpages in regard to the matter but haven't heard anything just yet. But I was wondering if anyone had any advice on the matter? I'm still new to hubpages and I don't quite know what to do in this situation.
Hi GameMaster...I am also fairly new and so my information may prove unequal to the task...but here ya go...I don't know. I warned you.
I do know that one of my hubs was published and I then received a message saying it was too commercial. I managed to "un-blue" (yeah...I'm not too technical) a couple of links in the story and the problem went away. I am sorry I can't be more helpful in this regard.
That being said, I would suggest that while your inquiry is working it's way through the bureaucratic shuffle of hub-ville...just write some more hubs! Come on...you know you want to anyway! Good luck!
It just basically means that large portion of your hubs was found on other material on the Internet. I would say just to add more of your voice into the material. Make sure you have more of a stand or difference that makes your piece unique. Hope this helps!
