How is it that I have a duplicate of my recently published hub?

    How is it that I have a duplicate of my recently published hub?

    Recently I piblished a hub (Organic Chemistry: Alkyl Halides). When I checked the chemistry section just now, there are two similar hubs , exact copies of each other. In my accounts section, I have only one copy. Why has this happened?

    Someone has written the same hub on hubpages at some time. If you can change the words to not be so similar to the other hubs they may let you publish it. It is so hard to write a of this sort on here especially if someone has written about the same thing.

      No, its not someone else, they are both my work...word by word and diagram by diagram...I just dont understand how HP published the hub in duplicate. Strange isn't it?

      Yes, very strange. I checked it out and it is published. Are they flagging it as a duplicate?

      Am not sure they have detected it, maybe it is a glitch in the system or something. I think I will have to contact them just in case. I wonder whether this has ever happened to anybody before.

      It is not a duplicate if hubpages has allowed you to publish it and haven't informed you as so. I wouldn't worry at all about it my friend.

    Maybe it's Hubpages telling you that you are TWICE as good, twice as awesome!  It wasn't good enough to let it be published once, so they did it again.  Forever an optimist. lol

    If the duplicate hub is on hubpages by the same cuttler then why worry? If it was on an other site I would be ranting and raving until they remove the plagiarised material. Be positive like Rosana Modugno. You are probably the first hubber to spawn a twin-hub and for that I give you an accolade smile LOL
