    Have hubpages devised a way to filter spun hubs?

    Hubs which seem to have been to be spun from that in their database.

    rajan, please clarify what you mean by "spun from that in their database".  What database?

    JamaGenee, its like making a hub from one which is already in the database of the hubpages. It's like moderating a hub which is very similar in writing and content to one on hubpages.

    Rajan, Article spinning is very easy using synonyms from any dictionary database. Even rearanging sentences sometimes is hard for robotic software to detect it.

    BTW: If you are on oDesk, you probably see very often offers like this one:

    Need 100 articles for BMR ( Very Urgent )

    Fixed-Price - Est. Budget: $25.00 - Posted about an hour ago

    Job Description:


    I need a good blog/article writer IDEALLY with experience of using Build My Rank. If not no worries I can train.

    Each blog/article needs to be 155-175 words, readable and keyworded. You will then need to submit it. If it's rejected then you need to rewrite.

    I would like to see examples of work, and a ***PRICE PER BlOG/ARTICLE*** submitted... Please then give me your bid for 50 x 155 word articles.

    For 25 US dollars, noone will write 100 short articles URGENTLY. Everything is copy&pasted from Wikipedia and other sources and then spun with automatic software that does it.

    The most effective means that HubPages currently has for detecting spun material are the site users (who flag Hubs for the moderators) and the moderation team (who reviews the content).  However, given that Google announced that grammar, spelling and sentence structure are now all being considered in page ranking, it must be possible to detect the more crude forms of article spinning in an automated fashion.
