      One at a time, please. We aren't your editors. You seem to think there's a whole bunch of people sitting at their laptops waiting to review your work.

      Don't be so cheeky big_smile Post a link to one hub you want looked at. In a couple of days time, you can post another one.

      This is what I got when I ran part of your third article through a plagiarism checker:

      "High chance of plagiarism!
      Please consider rewriting this essay as it seems to contain noticeable amounts of un-original material."

        Was it the parts that had scripture in it?

          It was 2. Above All Nations.

          The software I used also led back to the articles that had similar wording to yours.

          The point I am trying to make (without being rude) is that you are going to have to spend some time coming up with original content that will make it past the bots that HP uses to check articles for uniqueness.

            I didn't find you rude at all. Thank you for your help. I am going through it and changing it up a bit.

    I had a quick look at the first hub you listed - Introduction and FAQ. I noticed that one of your paragraphs is almost identical to a Wikipedia article on the same subject.

    Your text
    Hebrew Roots is a movement that advocates the return and adherence to the first century walk of faith and obedience to the Torah by seeking a better understanding of the culture, history, and religio-political backdrop of that era which led to the core differences with both the Jewish, and later, the Christian communities. We seek better understanding of the Most High and his laws, as well as his book.

    Unsure which article came first, but all works must be original.

      Thanks for the heads up. Meant to add the source.

        You misunderstand. You cannot use it at all. Only very short quotes are allowed and you have to add the source. I would use a call-out capsule for quotes, which means that Google won't read it and deem it duplicate content.

        Yes, you can quote the scriptures, but you have to balance it out with a whole lot of original content.

    Well articulated Bev. AF Mind, if you are having problems with properly documenting quoted material, here is a link to an article on the APA website. The topic is “How to Cite Direct Quotations.” Read this valuable information over and over again and allow it to sink in. In other words, don’t read it just once. Read it multiple times. Then apply this material carefully to your quotes.

    Here is the link:

    AF Mind, I’m not done here yet.

    Depending on the context, there are specific words and phrases that you can use to properly introduce quotes. Here is a link to another website that gives you a lot of examples. The article is entitled “Words that Introduce Quotes and Paraphrases.” Like I said above, read this material multiple times. Multiple means more than once.

    Here is the link:

    http://www.gallaudet.edu/tutorial-and-i … araphrases

    From time to time, I use quoted material in my articles. I always document the quotes using these guidelines. In almost four years at HP and having the majority of my articles moved to vertical sites, I have never, ever had a problem with an HP editor about documenting quoted material. I can also assure you that if there had ever been a problem with HP, I would have heard about it pronto.
