Here is my article: How to avoid neck and back pain and work comfortably at home (must be signed in to view)
You have taken text from this article:
https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/19/ways-to … -back.html
You cannot take someone else's work and pass it off as your own. In fact much of your article is very close to other material on the web. So much so, that you have probably triggered the duplicate content filter.
I click on the link, and it says "404 page does not exists." However, many negative things has been said on it: 'just copy,' 'stolen,' 'promotional,' and 'plagiarism.' All these comments were from the finest writers on HubPages. Original content is what wins the day.
Thank you so much for the clarification.
I am Tina S, a content writer, and I've written the article. While I have referred to the CNBC article, I've also researched the subject from various other sources on the web. I take full responsibility for the lapse in not giving due credit to CNBC. It was an accidental slip this time, unfortunately. I assure you that I do not work this way.
I have more than a decade of content writing experience on various topics for leading online publications in the US and India.
I want to contribute to Hubpages and would not want this incident to be a deterrent for future articles.
Can I edit this blog and submit it for publication again after giving due credit to all the sources I've consulted?
It's nothing to do with me, Tina. You have to convince the editors. We're just normal writers here.
You may have researched the topic but it is too similar to many other articles. HubPages wants unique content not material that is just a mash up of other online sources.
Even if you had given credit, it still would have triggered the duplicate content filter. A short quote is fine, but a whole section is not.
You'll have to completely rewrite the article (they aren't blog posts) and add your references at the bottom. Don't include unnecessary or promotional links in the main body. I would advice running it through a plagiarism checker prior to publication.
Also, you aren't allowed to link to other work of yours in the forum, so better to delete those.
It's always a good idea to research the platform before you start writing. Click Help, top right, to navigate to the Learning Center.
Your article also contains material very similar to a passage on a Mayo Clinic article. You've just changed a couple of words. As theraggededge says, the article contains sections that would be very likely be considered duplicate content. In addition, you can't link to Dr. Arun's website while using his account. That's a promotional link, which we aren't allowed to include in our articles. The links to your own work in your forum post could also be seen as promotional.
If you are not interested in following HP rules, then I'd look somewhere else to promote your client. The Internet is filled with websites looking for guest content. Do some research and pitch to some websites, but I am sure you will do well. Good luck!
The section about sleeping is taken almost word-for-word from here:
https://health.clevelandclinic.org/slee … back-pain/
Why would you say that it was an accidental slip? As a content writer, you would know that plagiarism is the worst sin.
I have had too many articles copied to ever see this as a 'mistake'.
...aaaaand look, the OP and their article have both vanished.
I love it when they go "Oh s**t, they're onto me!" and detonate their own vest.
