      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.

      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.

        Cagsilposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        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?

          1. Cagsil profile image60
            Cagsilposted 6 years agoin reply to this

            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. hmm

              Justsilvieposted 6 years agoin reply to this

              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.
