I just created a hub and wham! it got tagged for duplicate content. I used two quotes (one of them was a dictionary definition) -- both of them necessary to the hub, in my opinion -- and I gave credit for both.
None of the rest of the content was copied from anywhere.
I requested a review, but now I'm concerned and wondering if I should wait for the review or simply delete the hub. But I really don't want to, besides...it appears to be published. I thought that if it was flagged, it wouldn't show?
And the evening was going so well, too.
Just wait. You might not hear back until tomorrow as it is night time on the West Coast.
Don't delete it. This has happened to most of us at some point. When it happened to me, I didn't change a thing but submitted it for review and it was cleared without a problem.
Yeah...I figured it would be a while before I heard anything because it's late...but it's been a slow night (shhhhh...don't tell The Powers That Be) so I figured I might as well be productive somewhere. Now I'm going to worry.
Oh well...best just to finish up here, go home, read a while, drown myself in chocolate and wait.
I ever mention how lousy I am at waiting?

Two of my hubs needs revisions before republication because of duplicate content. But what if those hubs are just similar to the articles I myself have previously published in the net before? So basically I'm not copying anybody else's work, because both are mine. Is that allowed here? If not, how...

I am planning on taking a long trip. I am going to write about it here on Hubpages. My question is can I use some of my hubs to create an e-book about the trip or would that be considered duplicate content? ...what say ye?

I have just written a hub last night, about a singer, who has never been written about before, apart from on her own YouTube site, and I have been wacked with a duplicate warning and unpublished!!! How on earth can it be duplicate when the whole hub came out of my brain? On top of this it says it...

So, I've been putting the Hub team's hard work to good use, chasing down some folks who have appropriated content from my hubs without permission.How often do those dupe content scans/alerts update? I'm asking in regards to the fact that I've successfully gotten a few other sites to take down...
