hub keeps saying duplicate

    Does anyone have a suggestion as to how a hub is published.  I had a hub published for one month and now it says it needs editing because it's a duplicate.  I have tried 5 time to get it published and have been unsuccessful.  Does anyone have suggestions or where I can ask for help.  Thanks!

    Has it been unpublished or is it just giving you a warning that it's a duplicate? 

    When you open the Hub, do you have a section that says "Copied"?
    If so, have you clicked on "learn more" to see where the copy is?

      It has been unpublished and is now giving a warning of duplicate.  Everytime I try to edit it, it says the same thing. Thanks for your help Marisa!

        Even if it's unpublished, you should be able to open it. 

        Have you tried googling the first line to see if a duplicate comes up?

    I don't know if this is the one you are referring to-- but your recent hub seems to be published on another site.

    Here,http://www.betternetworker.com/articles/view/sponsoring-and-recruiting/how-you-can-succeed-in-your-first-year-in-network-marketing.

    It is in your name, and I am sure you are the author-- but "original content" on HubPages means it is not appearing elsewhere on the net.  Usually you can still post it here-- but it will be rated lower.

      thanks Rochelle, but it's not that hub.  It is a hub that was once published and then taken off and I have been trying to get it republished.  Should I just delete it?  I don't know what to do. 
      I have written many articles that might be similar, could this be the reason?  If so, I changed the backlink but it still says duplicate.
      Any thoughts? Thanks for all your help!

        I don't know-- Don't delete it yet-- but the hubpages team is usually helpful if you ask them a specific question. I think the  addy is:
        team(at) hubpages.com-- but someone might check me on that.
