    We can't see your hub since it isn't published. So that means only you can find out why it isn't being published.

    Visit the hub in question (not in edit mode, just view) and there should be a black box at the top with a warning, giving the reason for the article not being published. In this case it's probably based on automatic filters.

    Some common reasons include: not allowed affiliate links, overly promotional (more than two links to one external domain OR  promoting another site), using words that may trigger the filter such as tobacco, alcohol, gambling or words that may be tagged as sexual (often words that may seem innocent have other meanings), too short, too personal, pixelated images and quite a few other reasons.

    Read this and the sections below it for more information once you've identified the specific problem area:

      This is the message I'm getting. 'This Hub has been submitted for publication, and will be published once it has been reviewed by the administrator'

        You may have to wait at least a few days for the moderators to review it. Once approved, it will be published.

    I have this because my hub is on several other sites.  HubPages won't allow your work to be published here, if it appears anywhere else on the net.  I have had to totally re-write hubs in order for them to be published.  I personally don't think this is fair, becaue it is my own work, I have written every single word of it, often after doing a lot of research.  I therefore believe I should have the right to put my own work on whichever site I want, but these are the HubPages rules.  After re-writing, I have submitted the work again and have to wait a few days to see if it is accepted.  If not, then, I have to re-write it again.

      I tried to publish a hub about my mom and her award winning artwork.  I'm her agent and business manager and we both have copyright.  But my hub was unpublished almost immeadiately and I was told to revish it-the images and the content appeared elsewhere on the hub.  You would think that this would be a copyright issue not content elsewhere issue, but it's not.  Since I wanted to focus on her best work, it wasn't really possible for me to rewrite the hub enough to be approved via this rule.  So I took it upon myself to delete it - Idecided that the amount of hassle needed to fixthe problem was too great for what I was doing primarily out of love and a way to introduce my family to the website.  Since I'm new here, I thought that this was a long-time rule and didn't think anything of it.  It's an odd rule, but if it's a rule, I'm quite willing to abide by it.

    Those are the terms which you agreed to before you signed up for this site..But it is not HubPages alone.. Google also frowns on duplicate content. Google does not want the same material to be ranked one behind the other and give its readers a poor deal in the process.

      Is Google the only search engine that has this rule?

    FloraBreenRobison, it is a fairly recent rule that duplicate content is not accepted by HubPages. Previously, it was permitted but penalized through a lower hub score and various restrictions.
