Yesterday I took an article that I had posted elsewhere on the Internet, reworked it a little, and posted it as a hub here on hubpages. I then immediately deleted the article from the other website where it had been posted. When I logged on last night, the hub had been flagged for duplicate content, even though I wrote the content both places myself, and deleted the previous publication. Is this because of Google's cache? Do I need to take the article down first from the other place? If so, how long do I need to wait before trying to republish here?
contact the staff and tell them the original has been deleted.
That was my first thought too, but how do you contact them? I must be missing the link!
Even if you delete it the stuff remained indexed in Google for weeks and months. Happened to one of my hubs. You've done all you can in writing to HP Staff.

A couple of days ago my hub was taken down, due to duplicate content. I have since deleted all articles that were linked to my hub, all except for one article company. The body of the article has been deleted but I can't seem to delete the title. I also can't find a delete button to...

Why does my hub keep saying it is a duplicate? It is my work. I even made many changes many times.I deleted it, rewrote it and tried to publish it again, after having made many changes. Still it says duplicate. It should not say this. It is my work.

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...
