    My site appears properly when I go directly to it but when I log in it has duplicate in red and isn't listed.  What is the problem?  Help anyone.

      Is it duplicate content from another site? Or has someone copied your work?
      Type it into google and see what comes up - if there is the same article on one more other sites it's duplicate.
      You need to contact hubpages staff for more info.

          I found this:

          "Duplicate content" doesn't mean that you copied it.  It just means it appears elsewhere on the net. It's not a problem if you are the author-- but your score will not be as high, if it already appears elsewhere.

        Those two scenarios aren't the same. 

        If someone copies work that you published here first, you are not penalized and it is not considered duplicated as far as the system filters see it.

        If you publish work here that appeared somewhere else on the Internet previously, that Hub will be penalized for being "duplicate content."
