Wrote an article completely on the fly this morning and it was marked duplicate. Not sure how to deal with an original work being marked as a duplicate. Anyone have any suggestions?
Things I've tried already:
-Copy/pasting sections to see if they occur elsewhere on the web (they don't)
-looking for similar submissions I've made in the past (one vaguely similar but nowhere near duplicated, completely different presentation)
-emailing and waiting for a response from HubPages
Perhaps I've missed something that others may be able to show me as far as procedure in this case.
This happened to me today also. It turned out to be a link I had on my article.
The link was fine, but it printed a description that I had to delete.
Also, in the past if I had looked up anything on chrome or google that had to do with my article, it seemed to get flagged duplicate if I published it earlier than 6 hours after looking something up.
Not sure if any of this will help you.
Hopefully they will respond to you soon.
No links, and it was completely on the fly so no research. I thank you for your input anyways!
Difficult to answer without seeing the article. The duplicate detector is just software so it does make mistakes that a human wouldn't. That said, Google uses a similar approach.
I'm thinking it is a mistake, the only place anything in the duplicate article occurs is within the article that was marked duplicate.
It is unlikely and rare if such a thing happens. It is possible that a part of the work, by coincidence, matches a part exactly in the same wordings elsewhere, and if it is so, then we have no choice except to change it.
Meh, super unlikely except for maybe a subtitle, but that also seems unlikely. We'll see what HP has to say if/when they get back to me.
Yes, it's virtually impossible that you could write a paragraph independently and it would be flagged for duplication.
I've not been pulled up for duplication for many years. They generally let you copy a short paragraph for quoting purposes, two or three sentences. I was flagged for using a verse from a song related to my article.
So, basically, they stole my bio. That little thing they have us add for google indexing purposes outside of the body of the article itself is what they copied. I can't believe the editors wouldn't even take the time to realize that is what occurred even after responding to my email.
Oh, and they took my first photo. Pretty irritating.
Ugh, I disabled my adblocker and now I see they stole the entire thing. Could someone link me to the DMCA filing page? HP sent me a dead link.
Go here and get it done: https://turborfuture.com/internet/how-t … re-ignored Hope it helps.
Try and identify who is hosting the webpage first using Whoishostingthis.com or similar. Then look for the hosting company's email address for submitting a take down request or they may have a form for doing this. You can also submit a DMCA copyright infringement report to Google here:
https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools … tice?pli=1
....or to Bing here:
https://www.bing.com/webmaster/tools/co … movalform/
Going over and over the links, I found both useful. I hope our friend Kyler J, is reading and noteing to act upon. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, eubug!
Does the fact that HubPages unpublishes, "duplicate," articles ever affect proving ownership of both the original publication date and the article itself? This is the first time I've ever had an entire article stolen.
I must admit that I do find your case a little bizarre. You published a hub. Then Hubpages unpublished it because you shared a bio with another site. Now you want to prove ownership of your bio blurb?
It's 'bizarre' indeed as I'm yet to see such an issue before.
As stated in my correction earlier in the thread, they took the whole article. It turns out they took the whole thing, and only changed a few words, but I couldn't see it until I turned off my ad blocker.
Can come from your old works, which you have forgotten about. Change some words.
Nah, someone straight up stole it and only changed a few words in it. Left my name in the quotes and everything, though. Pretty silly thief.

The article in question was "Good Title and Caption Ideas for Content Creators". Here is the link to the unpublished page at least showing the url (https://discover.hubpages.com/technology/Caption-Ideas). I published this article on 2-21-22. There is usually a 1 day wait time for...

As I read and try to learn about the internet, I keep running across people talking about content spinners. Isn't the content that they create considered duplicate content? Or not? Does anyone use them for any other applications? Are there good applications for them? I'm curious on what everyone...

Let's say you see an article on someone's blog and website and they've got good information, but their entire article is extremely poorly structured, poorly worded, and just a gloppy mess.You could easily take the information they present and present it in a totally new way essentially entirely...

When searching for unscrupulously borrowed copies of my work sometimes I come across results that don't seem to really be there. Even though I search for a sentence in quotes, and the SERPs shows that quote in my results, when I click on the link either the text isn't really there, or I get a...
