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*

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...

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 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...

Curious--If I were to write a Hub about--and featuring--famous quotations, would the quotes trip the duplicate content warning?

I am doing a 20 "such and such" quotes about "such and such" hub. I even went back in after they marked it duplicate and made sure 400 of the words are my words, even though I know people googling it aren't going to want to read my words and are instead just going to be coming...

I just wrote a quotes hub and it says duplicate content - which I can understand as probably 80 % of the hub is quotes copied and pasted from the internet. However is this normal for quotes hubs and do you ask for the duplicate content penalty to be removed or just carry on and ignore it!
