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.
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 :-)
Thanks for the replies, it has been sorted by the Hubpages team and republished :-)

I have just written a hub last night, about a singer, who has never been written about before, apart from on her own YouTube site, and I have been wacked with a duplicate warning and unpublished!!! How on earth can it be duplicate when the whole hub came out of my brain? On top of this it says it...

Why those of us moving over from Squidoo should not try to transfer our lenses to HubPages manually:I just moved one of my recipes that's fairly new, and doesn't have a high search engine ranking, thinking I would use it as a way to become familiar with the HubPages tools. I deleted the Squidoo...

Is it alright to submit my published hub articles to ezinearticles? Does this break HubPages policy?I have checked ezinearticles policy - they are ok, so long as I can prove that I am the original author.
