OMG. Help. Duplicate?

    Hi, I wrote a hub about social dancing and the types of dances.
    Then I wrote a hub about dancing in San Diego and the different venues.

    The first has nothing to do with the second. The first is about the types of dancing. The second is about dancing venues in a specific city

    The hub says it duplicate. What must I do? How do I fix it?

    First are you sure that it is that first hub that is the duplicate?

    Type in some phrases from the 'duplicate' hub into Google and see what comes back - maybe someone has copied it elsewhere, or by co-incidence it is very similar to another article.

    Someone more knowledgeable than me will be along shortly I am sure.

    Use this tool: Article Checker

    Copy and past your article in the box and hit enter.. that should tell you what phrases are duplicates or near duplicates.

    You have written the same article on Associated Content. Hubpages require you to write unique content here. You can take the same article and rewrite it to get rid of the duplicate warning.

      I did rewrite it and there weren't two words the same. It still came up duplicte.
      So I've deleted it.

      What I will do is wait until tomorrow and reload it.

        Undelete it now. It just takes a few hours or days for the duplicate cache to update smile

            That was good advice from IzzyM - I had a duplicate article once, and once I corrected it, the duplicated sign did go away.

    Oh, you mean it's a duplicate to another article on the web? Yes, it is. I've got hundreds of articles on the web. Some I've even forgotten exist. smile Okay, I just have to rewrite some more. Didn't do enough of a rewrite job.

    thanks. smile
