what does duplicate mean? I created an article not like any of my others, but use a bit of quoting from the news.
If you hub has been flagged as duplicate content, then there is not enough original content versus what you claim you quoted from news sources.
It means that there are certainly too many words or related sentences in your hub, that triggers duplicate flag.
I have not seen the hub or tried to compare it to others, so I do not know. I'm sure HubPages Staff can explain it better than I can. And, I'm sure someone else probably will be along shortly to tell you.
Welcome to HubPages and I do hope you enjoy yourself.
Thank you, I also forgot to insert block quotes using the tool.

Why those of us moving over from Squidoo should not try to transfer our lenses to HubPages manually:I just moved one of my recipes that's fairly new, and doesn't have a high search engine ranking, thinking I would use it as a way to become familiar with the HubPages tools. I deleted the Squidoo...
