Does duplicate content on HubPages affect how Google views our subdomains? If so, could we get duplicate content removed from places like Pesonal Finance (description word for word from wiki). I've noticed my articles ranking higher with Google from secondary sites and was hoping we might change that with a little tweaking.
Yes, it will affect your subdomain.
Stolen articles can often be solved by filing a DMCA complaint; there are several sections of the learning center that go over this.

If, however, you yourself have published an article earlier and have now put a duplicate of that article on HubPages you will have to remove the original yourself. If you have given it to someone else to publish and now want those rights back the problem is in your lap.
I'm not sure from your post just what has happened, but HP will unpublish hubs that are duplicated from other sources even if you own both the other article and the hub. Stolen content is recognized as such and no penalty should be applied, but it is up to you (as the owner of the original) to file that DMCA and get stolen material removed.
Well here's hoping wiki doesn't do that! Sorry, let me try that again. The personal finance section of HubPages has a description. It is duplicated from wiki. Or wiki copied it, one or the other. Hubs-->Personal Finance

One of my hubs, http://hubpages.com/hub/relationshipswork has been marked as a duplicate! This was advice given to me from my Aunt when my ex-husband and I first got married as well as common sense. I asked for it to be reviewed, but I am quite put out! I don't copy other people's...

Hello, here's something I've been wondering about for a while.I have a few articles on another site, which has recently announced that it's no longer going to pay international contributors. So I'm thinking it would be a good idea to move a couple of them over to HubPages (where we're...

Like some other contributors in this forum, I've also just had an article suspended for "duplication". This is an article on grammar rewritten from a small section of my own much longer article on EzineArticles. I modified just about every sentence, changed examples, added content, etc....

Do I have to use original content?If I have written and created content for my blog or Squidoo, can I post that same content on HubPages?

I was reading a Hub on Hubpages, and was concerned to read the advice that the content we use in our Hubs should be unique, not something we've posted elsewhere on the net.I started out on Helium and have nearly 200 articles on that site. When I joined HubPages, I saw it as a great opportunity to...
