I took ALL the content out I got from the encyclopedia. It is ALL MY MATERIAL. I republished it and it still says "duplicate"
What should I do? wait a while or delete the article?
Either someone else did the same thing you did, and your content is too similar, or you posted the same thing on another site. Either way, it will be flagged as duplicate content. It is possible that someone copied your work, but then, HubPages would provide a link to that site, and you can see who's work was posted first. Your best bet is to contact the HubPages staff, and they can usually sort it out, or tell you what the issue is. If you just copied info out of an encyclopedia, my guess is, someone else did too.
on the hub the option comes to contact us .write the email to them . Hubpages moderators will again check and remove this problem
I would leave it for 24 hours, until the bots search it again.
If you are in a hurry, there are sites that will tell you how similar what you wrote is to other things online. It could be that some of your phrases are very similar to what is already out there.
The most reliable way to contact Staff: email - Team@HubPages.com

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...
