Hi had an article published on Associated Content and Bukisa, a few weeks ago when I posted it on Hubpages it said that a substantial amount of it was duplicated. Last night I deleted it off Associated content and I just deleted it off Bukisa but it still tells me that it's duplicated.
Is it because it still appears on the web somehow? does it take a few days to disappear? I want to sign up for Google Adsense but as far as I know they don't allow any duplicated content.
What should I do? What's going on?
You can do a Google search for your article, and will probably find that it is still indexed. There can be cached copies as well. It should resolve itself after awhile. If it takes more than a couple of weeks, you can contact HubPages and ask them to review it manually.
You have just one hub try to make 5 o more hub then apply to adsense. Don't post any artilce which was earlier posted in somewhere.
Sometimes there's a bit of a lag with the duplicated content checker - so in time, it'll probably come up clean. If it doesn't, send me a message and I'll have a look
Though I may be new here, but the one thing I do know is that once you publish an article elsewhere and try to publish it on hubpages, chances are you will get flagged for it. Besides your traffic stats will also suffer so avoid using articles that have already been published. Be original at all times, that's how you make it on here.
What are the rules on submitting content that was written for hubpages somewhere else? One of the reasons I was drawn to hubpages is that supposedly "we own the content." If I want to publish a hub article somewhere else do I have to remove it on hubpages first?
You don't have to but it will dilute the earning potential if you post it in too many places.
Just curious where does it say "duplicate" under hub statistics? Both my articles were removed? I know for a FACT these articles are nowhere else on the net. Whats the deal?

This sounds stupid, but there are no stupid questions, right? In that spirit, if you publish a hub here first, can you re-publish it somewhere else without consequence? I mean, will HP consider it duplicate content?

Like some other contributors in this forum, I've also just had an article suspended for "duplication". This is an article on grammar rewritten from a small section of my own much longer article on EzineArticles. I modified just about every sentence, changed examples, added content, etc....

I check with 3 different duplicated content checkers one said 98% original the other one said 93% original then the last one said original content. Should I just resubmit my article?

Can you please tell me why i cannot publish my hub, it is not a duplicate because I am the creator of it and no one else could have written this on hubpages.

What's the hubpages view on copying free license text and passing it off as your own?Even if quoted, its duplicate content.. which I'm sure would be penalized.. but is it acceptable to do it in the first place?I was just looking at a hub by a constantly-complaining hubber - and her hub is 100%...

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...
