    I recently published an article that was flagged as duplicate content and removed. How do I go about trying to figure out what portion is duplicated?  It's a long article. Is it possible because I copied a portion of the previous article I wrote as a review of information that it was flagged? I do this sometimes because I can't make them a series of articles. Otherwise, I have absolutely no clue what has been duplicated.

    Thank you, Margaret. So far all it shows is connections with my own previously written article. It must be because I used too much review from a previous article? I'll keep checking.

    I have used the same introductory section for a continuing related study. That is the only thing that comes up as duplicate other than Bible verses. It was allowed in previous Owlcation publications. I realize that I am not allowed to write a series. Therefore I use the same introduction because they are all similarly framed yet express different aspects of the topic.  I am sincerely not sure what the problem is.

    Tamarajo, it is considered duplication even if it is from your own work. Try rewording it while keeping the same concept.

    Ok. Thanks again Margaret.

    It is interesting to observe that copy and paste from one's own article is treated as copying. We have to be alert on that front also. I am publishing some microwave recipes in hubpages. Every time I have to rewrite the 'About microwave basics' capsule!
    It is required in almost all sites as per the policies of no copying.

    @bhattuc My best guess is that the articles are scanned by some sort of program that doesn't distinguish whether its a necessary repetition of information used by the author or not. This problem could be solved if we were allowed to make articles into a series and identify them as such. I can't figure out why that's not allowed.  I see it allowed in some cases such as fictional writing in terms of separate articles being presented as chapters and I've seen those chapters prefaced by a copy and paste review from the previous chapter. So that presents another question. Why are chapters and duplicate information allowed with some articles and not others?

    I guess I could just present an 80,000 word article that includes the entirety of information on the topic. I've done done it before.

      It would be better to write the information once, then link back to that article in all subsequent articles. Duplicate content is detrimental to your results in search engines, which is why it is not permitted on HP.

        I tried that with a previous series. I was informed with a notification that I had to remove the link because it was not allowed.

          I was told that nothing that identifies the article as a series is allowed. It must stand alone.

            I've never had a problem with that. However, you can't link *to* an article hosted on HubPages *from* one on a network site. It's best if they are all on the same site.

            I have an article called Tarot: Court Cards. There are a further 16 articles in the series, and I have managed to interlink them. Not all in one go, but as a kind of web. And each links back to that first article. None of the content is duplicated.

            Each one stands alone. The reader may only read the one they are interested in and will still get 'value' from it.

              Hmm... I guess that confirms my question as to why this is allowed in some cases and not in others. I was specifically told to get rid of the links.

              Thank you for your input.

                I have also been able to discuss issues with the editorial staff in the past and reach a compromise. They are usually understanding. The email address is editors@hubpages.com.

                  Thank you very much! I'll give that a try.

    I also think the cryptic notification was kind of rude. It does not identify duplicated portions it just tells you get rid if it and if you do it again your banned.
