I've been flagging these as duplicate content, since the entire body of a Hub should be more than just a copy/pasted news article.
Does the duplicate content filter not check versus newspaper or other print media?
Only Paul can tell you how exactly it works, but it does not take into consideration any *offline* content for sure. It's just not possible technically. And not needed.
Oh no no, I meant articles on the internet. The hubs in question were word for word copied from articles found on google search.
Awesome! That's what I thought.
I was a bit sad when I saw it done by this particular hubber, too.
you can keep flagging them, but combining various news for news blogs using snippets of a variety of articles (linked) and commented on with personal rants isn't going to get them pulled. it just means staff have to go in and do a bit of extra work.
It's still flag material from what I gathered from another thread I asked on. I found another hubber copying- word for word- material from varius sites. Still posting the links to the sites, as though they were sources, but I'm sorry, it's still a duplicate and against the rules...
I think you talking about different things, girls. Care to link an example?
I'm sorry, darlin', but when the vast majority of a hub is copied from another site, it's still considered duplicate content.
If you wanted to share news with other Hubbers, you could post the links on the forum.. but by trying to make money off of the writing of others you're doing something wrong. Heck, I wouldn't flag news hubs if they had ads set to zero.
It's kinda clear by now I guess you just have to agree to disagree
I used to run every single one of my hubs of any content with no ads. it's not alllowed anymore.
try it on one of yours.
I suspect the owners found that less than useful for them, nothing to do with me.
I just tried it and if you uncheck the box that says "this hub may be considered commercial" - then you can switch to no ads - and the ads go away
now I can get all that google bs out of my unpoetry! yay!
I have to work up the energy though
of course that gets flagged too. I think every single one of my Hubs gets flagged and downthumbed. so there is that.
LOL - my pleasure. I didn't know you could flag some one's hub for being poor poetry.
Yours is better than the Vogons' ....right?
Just tell me it's better than Vogon poetry. Or have you not read the hitch hikers guide?
just saw the movie and even then only because my daughter made me and paid for it.
yeah, I'm not much of a sci-fi person. I missed that one. *blush*
ok, I cede that my unpoetry is better than that, if only because it's shorter.
Hitch hikers guide is not really sci-fi - it is as good an explanation of my spiritual beliefs as I could have written myself -
And short is good as far as most poetry I have tried to read
LOL I used to work for the World Bank for more than 10 years. Don't hate me plz
ha, I had to do a "quote" to go in and look to see how you are getting those in. image tags work!
neat thing to know.
now if only we accrue all my favorite smileys, I'll be one happy camper.
One newspaper article does not a hub make.
Unless a person is quoting from it, as part of more complete hub. Or maybe they're discussing it, rubbing their opinion all over it. But it better be of substance and really grab my attention.
But a copy and paste job of a piece of news and that's it? It's not just a waste of our time, HubPage bandwidth but really, of the Hub Author themselves. Nobody cares. They're better off not publishing it.
I think it's a waste of time to go out searching for related news articles, just to cut and paste what other people have spent their hard earned time writing. Then for someone to basically rip them off. What a poor sport that is.

I have a question. After all the arguments recently about publishing duplicate content I wondered about this hub:http://hubpages.com/hub/2008-Forex-Mark … ading-deskI am pretty sure I flagged it some time ago as being copied almost word-for-word from...

I notice several disgruntled Hubbers on Eric's new Hub, saying they're leaving HubPages because of the duplicate content flags.They seem to be misunderstanding what the dup content flag is all about - either they think they're being penalized, or that the flag means they have to delete the Hub.I...

I just got hit by a duplicate content unpublishing of one of my articles. For the record, it is my own work which I had originally published on another platform and wanted to relocate here. After deleting the article from the original site, I submitted a request with Google to have that deindexed...

I was reading a Hub on Hubpages, and was concerned to read the advice that the content we use in our Hubs should be unique, not something we've posted elsewhere on the net.I started out on Helium and have nearly 200 articles on that site. When I joined HubPages, I saw it as a great opportunity to...

Hello, here's something I've been wondering about for a while.I have a few articles on another site, which has recently announced that it's no longer going to pay international contributors. So I'm thinking it would be a good idea to move a couple of them over to HubPages (where we're...
