I wrote a lens for Squidoo and it didn't have enough content, no pics, etc. so it was rejected and was never posted. I realized my mistakes and decided that being a smaller post, it would be perfect for Hub. It was rejected by Hub as a duplicate. I was shocked as the content was a personal incident about me and would be impossible to be a duplicate.
I thought about the 'lens' in limbo at Squidoo and deleted it. My Hub still comes up duplicate. I don't want to begin my new career in blogging and posting (I love writing!) by getting into trouble. Any suggestions are really appreciated. I hate to lose the post as it was a nice one, but will gladly delete it if it will clear things up. Thank you so much. peacefulcarol
Much of the text in that hub was already posted as your answer on yahoo answers. That's what is causing the duplicate content warning, not squidoo. I'd suggest removing the sections that quote your answer, and simply link to the answer on yahoo answer's instead.

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...

I posted a question about my hub being rejected as a Duplicate (it is not). anyhow, it was rejected. When I tried to view it from my account page, it said 'this is not published and you are the only one who can view it.' And yet the profile says 23 views. How can...

I felt I had to delete a hub that kept triggering the duplicate content warning. I had noticed that if we keep trying to publish we can get banned from hubpages.I wasn't sure what the problem was, but suspect it was rooted in how I began the page from trying to improve the focus of my original...

Hi all, I have just had my first experience of having a hub unpublished, and have been given a duplicate content notification. It's a hub I was very happy with, as the structure and content came very naturally, and was genuinely written entirely out of my own head. I find the duplicate content...

I would appreciate if Staff would tell me whether GamerGirl and Whitney, both of whom have chosen to crawl through all my output (output which staff courteously restored after I had totally deleted it on my sabbatical) and repetitively downthumb and flag me, have been assigned by staff as my...
