I write all of my own content, The article in question came from my blog and totally out of my head I did not even change or rewrite some elses copy.
This really makes me unhappy (I had to moderate myself here)
How can I find out where the "other copy" may have come from.
Can anyone advise what I can do
Many thanks in advance
Ok I have just read a similar complaint below me.
Is it against the rules to publish content that I have published elsewhere?
Any duplicated content is undesirable in the eyes of the search engines, including the recycling of material you wrote yourself.
If the material came from your own blog, you need to leave to there and come up with wholly original material that has not been published elsewhere first for your Hubs.
And I suggest you also take the time to read the site guidelines because by signing the user agreement of this site in registering, you've legally stated that you have read, understand and agree to abide by the site rules.
Duplicate means more than one copy on the internet, anywhere.
Having two copies of the same item is pointless because:
1. Search engines don't like duplicate.
2. One will always rank higher than the other, so why have two copies of the same thing out there?
ok thanks for that did not understand guidelines properly. I thought material other people had written all clear now.thanks

I flagged two new hubs that I saw in my feed this morning for copied content, and each of them had been published in at least four other locations?Surely, there is a better automatic filter that HP could use to help stop such blatant spamming of the internet - it's not even as if these article were...

We've heard several concerns about Hubs getting copied and losing traffic and we know how frustrating this is for the author. Google tries to identify the original content creator and show that in the search results. If you have a copied Hub that is getting outranked in the search...

As hubbers, we know that our content can and will be copied. We file DMCA complaints. We try to use CopyScape. We try to sign up for Google alerts.Is there any other way to help protect our content BEFORE it happens, rather than suffering the after-effects of losing Google traffic and having...

I have had this warning on a few of my hubs for some time and, thankfully, have had the offending pages removed from the web.However, the warnings persist on my hub list. How can I get these removed now the problem has been dealt with?Thanks!
