I am about half way done with a "how to clean dog poop off carpets" hub. I just now actually did some research and there are at least over 9,000 nearly identical sites. Normally I would try to change it enough so it had its own angle on the topic but how to clean dog poop is pretty open and shut.
Is it worth the hour or two I'd need to finish it?
Well if you are time poor, probably not. But if you think it will have a decent hub score, and even if you only get 10 hits per day, at least it is still helping your profile score and it's another hub under your belt.
If you have a good title (that will be searched for) and use the right keywords, if it were me I'd go ahead. Why waste research? I don't think you necessarily need a different angle on the "how to" aspect of it, but you may want to add a little something that will make a little more interesting or appealing - like a few words about any dog you've had or a particularly comical (and yet "tasteful" - not crude) anecdote about a particular clean-up challenge you had. "Unique" really does pay off, provided there's also good information.
By the way, I pretty much specialize in cleaning up cat vomit from hardwood floors. (It seems to be the reason I was put here on Earth over recent months. )
I have no sense of smell and my old cat who slept with me had renal failure for several months. Not an awesome combination. It didn't actually bother me but my poor dad would occasionally enter my room and be welcomed by week old cat urine. long story short: new carpets.

I have no idea how the Hub rating system works. What I do know is I published a hub about 4 hours ago. I came back to it 30 minutes ago, found a sentence that didn't look right, and edited it. 5 minutes later, the hub exited the bowels of the "quality assessment process" with a score 7...
