Hi, I published an article (which was my original content) on ezine articles about a week ago and then changed the form and content around a bit and published it on HubPages today but it has come up with a duplicate marker. I then trawled through my article and changed it round again and added more new content and it still says duplicate. How can I ask HubPages to re-review this?
It takes a little time.. I brought over four articles from one of my sites where they really did not fit. I deleted them from that site and put in redirects to their locations here. Every week I would "edit" them - just changing one word to be sure HP would recheck. It took about 3 weeks for the duplicate markers to go away.
If you have control over the site where the article was originally posted there is no need to delete it or use redirects.
If you delete the article from its original location, and remove it from the navigation of the original website you might be wiping out all the links that were pointing to it making a 301 redirect worthless as far as passing link juice is concerned. By leaving the article in place and using the canonical tag instead, the original will be removed from the index, all the benefits will be passed over to your hub and it will be seen as the canonical version.
N.B. This method will leave the original in place and accessible to users of the original website.
In this case, the four articles were a bad fit where I originally put them, so I did not want them there. I used the redirect in case there are any links, but this isn't a site where I care about any juice.
But yes, I agree that the canonical tag could be better in another context. But would it help HP stop seeing the other pages as duplicates?
If you don't know, I am sure I can find something appropriate to experiment with.
I had the same experience. I took the information from my squidoo lens and put on my hubs. I deleted the lens before I published the hubs but still got a duplicate messages. I email them and my duplicate messages was removed the very next day.
Duplicate content doesn't mean you didn't write it, it just means it is published elsewhere online. Hubpages & google frown on dupes...
I once published 17 original (unique)articles together on Hubpages on a date and the same articles were reposted on Associated Content and Bukisa after two days. After a day two, all the articles were marked "duplicate" by Hubpages. I wrote to Hubpages citing the subsequent dates of publication at other sites and requested to lift the label. They said once a content is published on Hubpages, it can be published elsewhere after a week and if so there will be no penalty. Else, it may be marked "duplicate" but it is visible only to the Hubber. It will not affect the revenue. But hubscore may be affected. If completely rewritten, the mark may disappear.
I am pretty sure it would. I would imagine HP check for dupe content programmatically, if the original is not indexed it would not be seen as duplicate or treated as such. But perhaps someone from HP would like to confirm this.
Google adsense itslef explains how you can resolve duplicates. Just open your google adsense account and locate master guidelenes and then duplicate.
I've got 2 hubs now that are marked as duplicate content. I have followed instructions from HP team and have had no response at the two other sites (fark and zimbio) where people have copied and pasted large portions of my 2 hubs.
I'm at a loss now... how will these 2 hubs be affecting my rep with google? I don't seem to be able to do anything about this.
Would you call this plagiarism? Here are some tips from RyanKetts hub:
Hope this helps!

I was reading a Hub on Hubpages, and was concerned to read the advice that the content we use in our Hubs should be unique, not something we've posted elsewhere on the net.I started out on Helium and have nearly 200 articles on that site. When I joined HubPages, I saw it as a great opportunity to...

I notice several disgruntled Hubbers on Eric's new Hub, saying they're leaving HubPages because of the duplicate content flags.They seem to be misunderstanding what the dup content flag is all about - either they think they're being penalized, or that the flag means they have to delete the Hub.I...

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...
