Why is it that one hub on a famous person quotes is tagged as a duplicate and another is not Why is HUBPAGES so dang inconsistent.
Last time I checked, Hubpages was very consistent on quotes type hubs. There has to be enough original content on the Hub than quoted material. Otherwise, it's slapped with a duplicate content tag.
Presumably one has a lot of quotes that are on a lot of other sites, and the other not so much.
I have one that is tagged as duplicate, but there is no way around it. It is about the films of Robert Downey Jr., and aside from my introduction, it is just a list of the films he has been in, and someone else, somewhere else, posted a list of his films, as well. There is often nothing you can do about it. Try making a few changes, and see if that helps.
Yours works! But try posting by replying to the OP's comment.
You are an angel. Last time somebody said, "Sally made me do it," it wasn't with such joie de vivre.
it is not on my profile and has a weird message... hhhmmm Strange!
And I wonder why I get confused here! lol
Message on my HUB! Err they might wanted to run a grammer checker over it
CERTIFIED ORIGINAL: This Hub has been granted an exception an is no longer consider by HubPages to be duplicated
This Hub needs to be revised before it can be published.
And, why would you be confused by that statement.
It's asking you to recheck the grammar and revise it before it gets published. But, on the other hand it is no longer considered duplicate content.
I don't see how that's confusing.
Sorry, but if something is pulled for duplication why would I need to check it for grammar?
Because duplication was only one of the reasons it was pulled down and not the only reason.
I'm sorry. I thought that would have become obvious, once it was cleared of being duplicate content.
Duplication of content was the only reason they gave and since they are Henry Ford Quotes, that is obvious. The rest is not! I am not sure who makes this decisions but I have found them to be inconsistent in the past. I am trying hard to find out, what is what, so I don’t repeat the same mistakes again. Thank you for, your input, Cagsil.
Justsilvie, I've been trying to answer your original question ever since you posted it, but tech garbage got in the way, not allowing me to post my message for you, and that's the exchange you saw between Paradigmsearch and me. So here's what I've been trying to say, which, actually, Cagsil (yes, I mean Cags) said in fewer words in his first post:
If you are talking about the Henry Ford Hub being flagged, then that makes sense because fully half of it is comprised of quotes. I don't know who the other famous person was that you wrote about and included quotes. But this one is clearly duplicate content by virtue of half of its content being words already published on the net. You can fix this by adding more of your own thoughts about the quotes. The 1 to 1 ratio of your words to quoted words isn't going to fly on HP.
Thanks Sally! That is what I need to know! *smile*

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 notice several disgruntled Hubbers on Eric's new Hub, saying they're leaving HubPages because of the duplicate content flags.They seem to be misunderstanding what the dup content flag is all about - either they think they're being penalized, or that the flag means they have to delete the Hub.I...

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...
