I noticed one writer has written multiple hubs with the same content with slightly different wordings in each paragraph (one or two). Will this consider spam? The title is different but the section and content is the same with slight variation. Is this okay per Hubpages rules? Thanks.
Chances are that such a hub will eventually be flagged as "duplicate content." If not, it will likely be considered "substandard" if someone flags it, since it is completely "unoriginal."
I swear someone just posted the same thing a few days ago.... I assume they were talking about the same hubber.
interesting. I would like to post the link but am afraid of retaliation.
I have seen this as well. It's like they used a program to replace all words by synonyms to generate multiple versions of the same article.
yes, looks like something is being programmed. Interesting enough these article has high hub rating 80s and above.
Yeah OK guys. So there are some similarities in stuff I write. It's called STYLE. If you check Shakespeare it's all privy thee and privy thou - what's the big deal? And no, it's not exactly all my own work, but like, have you dudes never heard of a little invention called the photocopier? I mean, if photocopying was illegal where would we be now? Exactly.
Chill out. Let's share the love, and the writing.
Er. The above is a bad taste joke and does not express the author's personal views on plagiarism or article spinning. Which are largely in favour.
Sorry - once I start I can't stop.
I found a hubber the other day who multiple posted identical hubs. The only words he changed were in the url - each one had a slight variation. His hubberscore was low, unsurprisingly.
Crazy thing was, as far as I could tell, the first one he wrote of each was not only original, it was good! Really well-written stuff that could have gone places if he hadn't duplicated himself.

The question of whether poetry Hubs should have 400-word minimums came up in this thread a few minutes ago:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/70203#post1528809I've been puzzling about what to do with poetry Hubs I've found while hopping. I haven't flagged any of them, because poetry is a unique...

Hi,this Hub of mine:http://hubpages.com/hub/Haiku-poem-Coca-Colahas been flagged as substandard (or in danger of becoming one or whatever). The Hub is a poem with a video clip. That's all that that Hub is supposed to contain, nothing more and nothing elseand your engine thinks it's lacking content...

One of my friends who is a poet had created a Hub Pages account in hopes to share her poetry with others. She published a number of poetry hubs that included her poetry and appropriate images but they became unpublished with warning messages. I don't remember what they were exactly but I do...

My search of Q/A and the forums didn't turn up much that wasn't old or inadequately answered, so thought I'd stir the soup again and see what floats up. The answers to my questions could be applicable to all hubs, but, in particular, I'm thinking of moving (re-)idled hubs off of HP, not ones still...

Two questions:Will our URL's transfer to Maven as 301s instead of actually remaining as our own domains.Will we retain the right to add, remove, edit our articles from Maven as we see fit.
