This past Saturday I wrote a hub, a poem I created on the spur of the moment.
I published it once I was finished and Hub Pages threw it into "Limbo" stating it was duplicated. Since I just created it off the top of my head, unless someone has used the same "Title" how can it be duplicated? It is now awaiting approval by some administrator, to either approve it or reject it.
Suggestion - go to copyscape.com - enter the link of your hub and see what you get. Best wishes to you on solving the mystery.
Dave - It looks like that Hub has a significant amount of similar verbiage as another one of your Hubs (Proclamation of Salvation). Hubs need to be original, not incorporating text from other sources, including your own Hubs.
Jason: I understand what you are saying. Let me see if I get the jist of what you mean. We are permitted to incorporate quotations of Biblical text as a part of our hubs and there is no problem, but we are not permitted to incorporate one of our already posted poems, or a part of one of our already posted hubs. How does this make sense? Either we are permitted to quote from other sources or we are not, regardless of the source.
Dave - you'll find that any hub you right that has more 'quote' than original content will be flagged. If you had quoted your own work in part (and then had a link to the original work) and added an extra 500 words or so then you would be OK!
It's when the majority of the text in an article is 'quote' that you get the problem...doesn't matter whether the quote is your own work, the bible etc..
You are permitted to quote from other sources HOWEVER it's the percentage of quotation (duplicated content) vs original (never before published anywhere else on the Internet) that is the key factor.
You want to keep your duplicated material to a minimum. If a Hub is flagged as duplicated, then you've got too much. And before you ask, no there has never been a stated percentage or formula to follow given as that would allow the spammers and scammers to game the system.
I had this happen a LOT on my other account, chenderson00. Every hub from now on is edited and has to wait for submission -- and I think the editors hated me with that name. Every submission got rejected, so finally I made a new account. I'm not sure why this keeps happening but you and I are not the first to have the issue. Lots of people say it happens. I'm not sure, I love HP so It really depressed me for awhile.

Hi all,Initially I was not planning to publish the information of my hubs here because I think it is somewhat personal. So, I have sent a message to the hubpages support about 24 hours ago. But since I haven't get back any reply and my hubs are all still unpublished, I guess I have to do more to...

Someone recently stated that there are limits to how much you can link to your own hubs. Does anybody know the limitations?

First, can I change or modify the hub and will that make it not original? Second, I have other hubs that should be certified original so what should I do?

Apparently all hubs that promote MLM will be unpublished as they are found. It's okay to review the PRODUCT. Here are the actual quotes:"Hubs that promote the products sold by a well-known MLMs are permitted, but Hubs that promote the use of MLMs are no longer allowed.""... hubs...

I received an email that one of my update articles has items that may be spam. I have no idea what it could be, because everything is about the product. We are permitted an outside link ie my blog, but other than that I can't figure out why it isn't being featured. Could someone tell me what...

I just received an email from Hub pages accusing me of plagiarism. They have unpublished one of my hubs. That hub is entirely my own work based on my experience as a Master Gardener. I also work in a botanical garden. I have a TON of gardening knowledge that I am sharing on...
