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Has it been unpublished or is it just giving you a warning that it's a duplicate?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It has been unpublished and is now giving a warning of duplicate.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!
I don't know if this is the one you are referring to-- but your recent hub seems to be published on another site.
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.

Hi there One of my hubs has been unpublished, and it says it's because there's duplicate text, but I don't know which part is duplicate? I've written it all myself, and I've just done a "plagiarism check" to...

I hope someone can help before I have to throw away a hub that took me 6 hours to produce. It is marked "unpublished for duplication" for no reason that I can discern. Every single word and sentence came from...

This really isn't a problem, but rather something I am interested in finding out. I have a few unpublished hubs with little to no content in them, and the thing is, one of these hubs outranks one of my published hubs! I...

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or...
