Several years ago I published an alternative medicing newsletter. The site has been down for at least 6 years. My first 2 hubs are articles that I have written for that newsletter years ago. I thought that there was some valuable information here that I could share with our fellow hubbers. There is no link anywhere and in no way do I profit from them. They have been statused as Duplicates. I feel like I did a really BAD thing!
Do I need to worry about this? Is there something I should do about it? I don't want people even thinking that I might have stolen these articles from somewhere.
Dont worry you are the only one that sees it. I have some duplicates.
And I have completely reworded them and yet they still show as duplicate. One of my duplicates is my best earner and I have not touched it at all.
So decided not to worry about them anymore. Only get grey hairs.
It can drop your earnings so they so. Good luck
I agree with Eileen. Don't worry about those. Many of us have written posts that appeared in our own blog sites, for example, and I wouldn't hesitate to put good ones here.
It could be that someone else has copied your original articles. If you search on google using a distinct phrase from your article you should be able to find it.
Your the only one who can see your "duplicate warnings" so your readers wont think they are stolen

I was just checking my stats when I noticed that a hub I published on 1-7-07 has been flagged and incurring a HP penalty for duplicate content. It's my highest earning hub and HP giving me a penalty-and then asking me to wait 72 hours for a review on something I published a year ago is...

In the last few days I have been getting up to six email notifications of the same hub being published. These are usually one or two minutes apart. At first it was only duplicates of each email, but I just got six email notifications of one hub being published. Is anyone else experiencing this? I...

Hi, I have a lot of photos that are duplicated from the transfer. I was wondering how can we tell which of the images is attached to a hub and which is extra so that we can delete it? I can tell which were from lists of lenses because they are smaller, but these are the same size.

I notice several disgruntled Hubbers on Eric's new Hub, saying they're leaving HubPages because of the duplicate content flags.They seem to be misunderstanding what the dup content flag is all about - either they think they're being penalized, or that the flag means they have to delete the Hub.I...
