    So I just had an email saying one of my hubs was substandard due to duplicate content but to be honest it is content that I wrote totally off my own back and only have a couple of facts in there that are relevant. So the question is what would you advise? Should I just delete the hub and be done with it or should I try and change it? I am a bit nervous about changing it because a) I don't know which bits they think are duplicate and b)if I don't change it enough and try and publish it will I be penalised even more?

      Take the text of your hub and copy it. Go to articlechecker dot com and put the text in the field. The site will look for duplicate content on the web. You will then be able to identify what duplicate content is tripping the filter and you can rewrite it to make the necessary changes.

          Hmm, I used that and it only came up with 1 option for 81% of my article (which I assume was my article!!)
          Back to square 1 then...

    Your Content should be unique and informative,Because Hubpages didn't allow duplicate content.

    Is it content that you previously published on another site? Even if you wrote it yourself, you can't publish it here if you've previously published it somewhere else online.

      No, I have not published it elsewhere, it is brand new :-)

        Wow, that is scary.
        So it should mean is that somebody out there wrote and published almost exactly a similar article (as in almost word-for-word) as you did.
