    I wrote a recipe on Cornbread and the instructions are in my own words but it keeps coming back as a duplicate. I need help.

      Hi Lisa,

      I suspect this is happening because your article is extremely short (and as theraggededge says, recipe instructions tend to contain commonly-used phrases). Adding more original text should fix the issue. We recommend 800-1,500 words per article.

      We can't see it because it is unpublished. Try copying a chunk of your text, paste it into Google and see if you can locate the duplicate text. Try it with more than one section of your hub.

      The problem with common recipes is that they are very likely to be duplicated because there are limited ways to say the same thing sad

    Okay. I have been editing it for a while. I am getting frustrated.
