Today I got an email from the Hub team. They informed me that they had unpublished one of my hub due to Duplicate content. I swear that I wrote this post. I checked on the Internet and found someone had republished my post without asking me. What can I do in this situation to have my hub published again?
That is a very strange situation. It will be hard to prove I would think. You may have to spin your content and then republish it to pass the filters. Sorry to hear that.
Thank you for your reply. I have checked the uniqueness of hub on plagiarisma dot net. This uniqueness checking website shows that all of the sentences it checks belong to my hub. So why
Email Hubpages back and let them know the situation. And lodge a DMCA complaint with the site that stole your work.
Just send the team an email explaining that your content is original - if someone has copied that is not your fault, the date of that post will be later than yours..... If your hub is original work then it will be re-instated or they will explain what the issue is in more detail..
Same thing happened with me. One of my subdomains looked as if it was penalized by Google so I unpublished and deleted a sales hub which use to give me several sales a month and tried to republish in another account of mine. I got the notification as duplicate content. When I checked I found that the hub was copied and published in a company website. Since I have deleted the Hub I have no way to prove that the content is mine.
This morning I got an email from the HubPages Team to inform me that my Hub had been cleared for publication, and published
Thank you all, you are very helpful.

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 have just written a hub last night, about a singer, who has never been written about before, apart from on her own YouTube site, and I have been wacked with a duplicate warning and unpublished!!!

I was just checking my stats when I noticed that a hub I published on 1-7-07 has been flagged and incurring a HP penalty for duplicate content. It's my highest earning hub and HP giving me a penalty-and then asking me to wait 72 hours for a review on something I published a year ago is...
