I published my 100 ways to make money online hub a few months ago using the same article i posted on Bukisa so I received a duplicate content penalty. Since then I have completely changed all the information. Hubpages no longer labels my hub duplicate content but my hub score remains the same since it received the penalty. Is there any other way I can recover from this?
You will eventually recover my recommendation is just keep on writing.
They also done this to me and my score recovered after around two weeks, I learnt now I just don't post my information elsewhere.
What about other people using your stuff as duplicate?
I still have a 'warning' on one of my hubs and hubpages tracked down where this duplicate content is located. Sure enough, someone has copied and pasted directly from one of my hubs. Notifying the site where this has occurred hasn't changed anything?
Should I go in and edit my hub or what? It will be easy enough for me to do so.
Did the site take the content down after you notified them?
The duplicate content checker is only run occasionally, so it can take some time for the warning to disappear. Don't worry about it too much as it will go eventually, if the other site has removed the content.
No, the other site has not taken down the text or replied to my notification - I used their report form...hub pages staff looked up some stuff for me (very helpful) and outlined the process/protocol the other site has in place for things like this. I followed directions and use the other site form - twice - no changes at all...
I logged in there today - same user's post with the text from my hub copied and pasted is still there, same place, no messages in my on-site inbox - no emails to my email address.
Not sure if I should just change content here at HP or not.
Hi Norah. What about my two poems by Banjo Paterson? I guess I can't change the text without making a mess of some wonderful poetry.
Will I have to keep seeing duplicate content on these? Their must be thousands of people putting out these poems.
We can only do something about content that is created by a hubber and stolen by someone else. In your situation, if you add more original content (such as a reflection on what the poem means to you or your own interpretation) that will reduce the dupe score and the dupe penalty. One hub I read recently had some reactions from other hubbers as well as their own (since you can only say so much about shorter pieces of poetry).
I found this helpful - thanks for the question and the answers.

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...

Why does my hub keep saying it is a duplicate? It is my work. I even made many changes many times.I deleted it, rewrote it and tried to publish it again, after having made many changes. Still it says duplicate. It should not say this. It is my work.

A while ago I checked out one hub of a suspicious writer. I mean by that, a forum post seemed to indicate that the writer was one of the get-rich-quick, I-can-teach-you-everything-you-need-to-know-to-make-a-million-online types. That was my assumption, but I could be wrong.Anyway, the...

Over the past couple of months I've been slowly reorganizing my content by niche. This means moving Hubs from one subdomain to another, as well as moving content from elsewhere on the web to HubPages. More often than not, each time I try to move a Hub I trigger the darn duplicate content...

Hello, here's something I've been wondering about for a while.I have a few articles on another site, which has recently announced that it's no longer going to pay international contributors. So I'm thinking it would be a good idea to move a couple of them over to HubPages (where we're...

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!
