I'm at a loss. They say that my article is a duplicate, and needs review. it also says something about it being commercial or something like that. Can some one help me know what to fix. so I can republish. I edited it and added pic.s. is this possibly how I accidentally duplicated it?
Have you posted it on another site first in part or entirety OR do you have large quotes from another source? That might account for the duplicity.
What is the article topic? If it is aimed entirely at getting someone to buy or visit a site that is not in anyway related to HP and sounds like you're trying to sell it, that may be why. And remember not to have more than two links to the same outside site per hub.
Sometimes it's best to let it set unpublished till HP staff catches up. The photo of the baby is priceless.
I wonder if duplicate pictures matters? Try adding a different photo to one or the other.... Just saying and best of luck to you.
Welcome to HubPages
I have it posted on other places like squido ,ezine@rticals
Er why the big space in your post?
That would be why. Hubpages looks down on duplicates because google does. Delete all articles except for one.
That is why it's coming up as duplicate.
I have the same problem with one of my articles. I have left it alone so far. You may have to completely re-write it, using a new title. Once the new article is published you can delete the duplicate. I hope this helps.

I wrote a hub recently about MS drug trial results. A lot of it was flagged for being 'duplicate'. I tried my best to quote the exact texts appearing in the article, and re-word the data that I reported, that was taken from several other sources. There really was no other way to put the majority of...

Why does my hub keep saying it is a duplicate? It is my work. I even made many changes many times.I deleted it, rewrote it and tried to publish it again, after having made many changes. Still it says duplicate. It should not say this. It is my work.

I've received a warning on one of my articles that much of it is duplicated on another site. I then remembered that I had it posted 1.5 years ago on a site for writers, but not a blog kind. I hadn't visited that site all this time as it didn't interest me and I'd forgotten about it actually. ...

One of my hubs has duplicate written underneath it. I contacted hubpages saying it should be unique. Will they check it out, and if it is just a conflict of popular terminology remove the duplicate marker. Or will I have to change the content
