Do you quote Scripture verses in your hubs?
I wrote an hub and when I quote scripture verses (from NKJV), it is marked as duplicate content. When I delete the Scripture verses, it doesn't say duplicate content. I want to have the actual Bible verses in my hubs, not just the reference, as it will be more easier for readers. What can I do in such a situation?
I have occsaionlly used Bible verses in my hubs without issue. The main thing w/ duplicate content is how much of your hub consists of the verses. If the majority of the hub is your own individual content, and then you add in some Scripture you should be fine. But if you write a one paragraph intro then have a list of 20 Bible verses you'll get labeled duplicate. Basically, you want to make sure that over 50% of the Hub is your own individual work and not quoted.
Kejanny- So far I have not had that problem, but it might help if you try verses from other bible translation such as KJV, NIV and so on. Aside from that I don't know what else to tell you expect others may have another idea on how to resolve your problem.
Blessing to you.
Thank you Graceinus. Sure, I will use more than one translation. Happy New Year 2013. May God continue to bless you with good health, success and abundance grace in the coming year. Thank you for being my friend!
No I never quote scripture. However most duplicate issues come from saying too much of the same thing word for word that you have published in other hubs or articles. If you are going to put the same information online at another location then you might want to publish it first on HubPages and wait 2-3 weeks before placing it someplace else. More and more writing forums are looking to avoid duplicate material. It reduces the odds of people clicking onto their particular site if your article is posted on multiple websites. It comes down to competition for views, clicks, and websites earning money based upon the number of monthly visitors.
I know, this is ridiculouse. I have encountered the same issues with hubpages. This is why I am now writing on wordpress, they are not as controling.
I have used scripture in several hubs without any problems. I would make sure you are using the scripture to support hub content, rather than just quoting the scripture. I would also make certain to cite it appropriately. If it is not properly cited, it will be flagged as well. Hope this helps. HubPages is not against scripture, just for proper usage.

I just wrote a quotes hub and it says duplicate content - which I can understand as probably 80 % of the hub is quotes copied and pasted from the internet. However is this normal for quotes hubs and do you ask for the duplicate content penalty to be removed or just carry on and ignore it!

I read a Hub where several direct quotes were included. One came from a website, one came from a book. One direct quote was used in the "call out" section but no mention of who said it.I'm wondering if these quotes would be considered duplicate content? I have...

I was on another thread and someone said many people sign up on HubPages, but very few go on to write a substantial number of quality Hubs.I wonder why this is and what HubPages can do to encourage people to stay on and improve their Hubs, which seems to be what they want.All my Hubs were recently...

I found out this morning that this site had stolen at least 2 of my hubs. The more I looked, the more I noticed that it appears every single post on the site is a stolen hub, completely copied in most cases (including the authors' names and copyright notes, ironically). I see lots of names of...

Hi everyone,I know there have been a lot of concerns about our hub content being stolen. It has been difficult for all of us to keep an eye on our hubs - plagurising is rife! However, I wanted to share a freebie with everyone (I like free!) that will search the Internet for duplicate...

I would appreciate if Staff would tell me whether GamerGirl and Whitney, both of whom have chosen to crawl through all my output (output which staff courteously restored after I had totally deleted it on my sabbatical) and repetitively downthumb and flag me, have been assigned by staff as my...
