Why was my hub flagged as duplicate?
I had written it on another website over a year ago. I only got about 4 views so I deleted it a few months ago and just put it up here a couple of days ago. The next day it was unpublished.
It's not on the other website at all anymore, I even ran it through a plagerism checker just to make sure and it was didn't come up. How is it a duplicate when it's been deleted from the other website?
it was flagged because it was not an original piece,you might have to rearrange your article and change the title
The duplicate issue has bothered me. I wrote a Hub for hubpages. It was picked up by another publication I write for (at no charge). They ran the hub in total with the correct link. Thus they copied the hub from me. Hub pages flagged my hut as being duplicate of another. I attempted three times to rewrite it to meet their standards of difference. After that I deleted it and lost credit for the views it had accumulated. There is no way to stop other sites from copying your work, since HubPages does not exercise a general copyright. Those individuals who do say their work has copyright protection, may have some resource, but unless it is a real copyright, probably not.

I would like to make a suggestion to the TEAM here on HUB Pages. I feel that it would be a positive improvement here on the HUB, if all of the activity that is perpetuated by Hubbers, were made known.For instance... apparently - anyone can go around giving thumbs UP or DOWN to a fellow...

My most recent hub was flagged for duplicate content by an automated system. I have read my e-mail, the Learning Center, and the "help boxes". They all tell me, "This Hub seems to contain text that also appears on another page and may be unpublished as a result. If you revise the...

I just posted a bit ago a request for help on a hub that has been flagged over promotional. I just realized nobody can see the hub in question since the hubpages staff said to unpublish. How do you get someone with experience to look it over and help with it if they can't see it? It has been...
