    How to get rid of DUPLICATE violation?

    i did not copy from other pages but it kept saying that there were parts of my page from other pages. I altered the texts and rephrased but still got the same error. will  it ever be published?

    'What' kept saying that you have duplicate content? Is that immediately or a while after you published the content? Are the ideas behind your content inspired by any other content on the web?

    May be you are collecting your content idea from other web page  and posting with very close similarity. Or most of your articles are same category and with same description. Try to find out. Good luck.

    If HubPages is reporting a DUPLICATE violation it is not necessarily because the content was copied and pasted from somewhere else, and rephrasing the content won't do you any good. The whole purpose of the violation is stating that somewhere else on the web there is content like your duplicate hub and the two share nearly the same exact information, which is why simply re-wording will not work, because essentially it is the same information. To correct and remove this violation you must add fresh, original content that doesn't resemble anything, or at least very, very loosely, meaning the two sources of the content offer much different information, or one offers a lot more. If you try this and it still gives you an error, it might be because the topic you are writing about has too little information and every source on the web nearly says the same thing, so adding content is almost impossible and rewording useless. In that case, you will most likely have to drop the topic, or perhaps go to a library and spend some time really researching it to add something new.

    I have this violation, too. But I just didn't mind it.

    My hubs are free crochet patterns and it so happened that both my patterns used this special stitch. I certainly copied a part of my old pattern to the new one. After the new pattern was published, the next day the duplicate violation appeared.

    If HP ain't gonna UN-PUBLISH my hub, I don't mind seeing that red word in my hub statistics. But if they do, that'll be time to act.

    Your hub didn't get published?
