Question - Duplicate Content

    I just published a Hub & got a notice of duplicate content. 

    What is duplicate is verbatim quotes from historical documents that are of course available on the web.  The quotes are the basis & reason for the Hub.

    I put each quote in its own titled module that clearly identifies the source.  And since I did it that way, I did not put quotation marks around each quote.

    All that explaination to ask this: If I edit in quotation marks will that eliminate the duplicate content warning & thereby not hurt the score?

    Or, is there an avenue of appeal to argue my case?

    Thanks in advance for answers and/or advice.

      Submit it for review. All pages are crawled by bots. A real person will check out your hub and remove the duplicate content thing. It may take a few days to get this taken care of. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Thanks, Sir Dent.

    How do I submit it for review?

      When you go to the hub there should be a button to submit it for review. It will be at the top of the page with the header.

      I realize things have changed since the last time I had a duplicate content warning. The button may have been moved to a different spot on the page.

        Thank you. 

        I sent an e-mail requesting a review.

          As I said before, it may take a few days for them to review it. Any time we use quotes that are elesewhere on the Internet we run the possibility of getting a duplicate content warning.

          Just don't worry about it now.

      One good option is to sign up to copyscape. com and check if it is copied work or not.

    Big Whoop.  My appeal resulted in this:

    CERTIFIED ORIGINAL: This Hub has been granted an exception to the HubPages duplicate content penalty.
