I just put two new recipe Hubs on here one with my recipe and one with my grandmothers and underneath both it is saying in Red Letters DUPLICATE.
The Hubs are still published and running with ads on them. I don't understand why they are saying duplicate.
Chances are there is something out there with these recipe's just about word for word and the site is picking that up. I find it hard to imagine that you have had one of your hubs stolen this fast as while it does happen it usually takes awhile to get noticed. You can always try to copy and paste a few paragraphs from your hub into a search box and see what pops up, if there is duplicate content that should bring it up.
Sadly there are those who do rip off our hubs and post them word for word on some other site. The net is full of lazy thieves it seems
Did you ever post any of the recipes on online forums? One of mine was flagged duplicate, I had forgotten that I posted the recipe on a forum and it was almost word for word.
Your chocolate Hershey pie recipe isn't unique -- it's all over the Internet exactly as you have it in your hub. When it comes to recipes, the ingredients themselves are not copyrighted, but the preparation methods are. You cannot simply copy a recipe and republish it. Don't know about the other recipe though. Hope this helps!
I had a look at the Hershey one too, by the way, YUM!
I did think that if it exists out there the ingredients and preparation is going to very likely wind up being word for word or very close just by the nature of it. There are only so may ways to say how much chocolate you need, ya know? You can have phrases that repeat from other places online if most of the text is unique. You could try adding some more bits of text about when you have had this delicious desert or if they don't have access to Hersheys (like here in the UK we have cadburies instead) what replacement ingredients could be used. The real info in the article is short and sweet, nothing wrong with that but if you can fluff it out with favorite times to prepare and substitute ingredients etc. it wont matter that the ingredients duplicate across the net as there will be loads of unique text about what you like about the desert

Do you quote Scripture verses in your hubs?I wrote an hub and when I quote scripture verses (from NKJV), it is marked as duplicate content. When I delete the Scripture verses, it doesn't say duplicate content. I want to have the actual Bible verses in my hubs, not just the reference, as...

I still see this when hubhopping. I leave it alone as I'm always unsure of it. However I'm trying to work out, re duplicate content, as to whether this matches what I see.Often they're full of bible quotes, with the hubbers opinion interspersed. Largely, the main body of content is the Bible...

What does "I love you, but I'm not in love with you" mean?

What if your hub is not a duplicate but they keep saying it is?How can you get it approved if it really isn't a duplicate? I have written two hubs now that have bee unpublished because they say it is a duplicate when it isn't. I may have quoted some research but always site my sources.

I was on another thread and someone said many people sign up on HubPages, but very few go on to write a substantial number of quality Hubs.I wonder why this is and what HubPages can do to encourage people to stay on and improve their Hubs, which seems to be what they want.All my Hubs were recently...
