Plagiarism on Hubpages?
I know that this question might seem silly but let me ask it anyways.
Before I write any hubs, I make intensive research. But there are times when I have to copy and paste a sentence as it is because if I put it in my own words, I might end up changing the meaning of the sentence.
I just want to know what is the percentage of plagiarism that is accepted on Hubpages.
Thanks in advance.....please reply.....its urgent!
If it is not your words, then you should reference it and it should be fine.
I agree with Lois. Even one sentence you've copy/pasted from somewhere else should have the reference listed next to it. If I couldn't find a way to reword the sentence and decided to use it as someone else wrote it, I'd either set it off as a quote or or add something such as "According to [person's name, organization, etc]" and then add the information. It's always best and fair to give credit to the original author.

If a hub is not featured does that mean that it doesn't get any search engine traffic from Google or other search engines?
