      I looked at 2 of your hubs, one was very short and another had sentences taken from other articles here and there, mostly from the WHO. All work must be your own, even if you are quoting statistics you must rewrite them in your own words.

        I have not copied anything from here and there, and not even from WHO. All the content are mine. I mostly get "Sub-Standard" whenever I try to publish a new hub.

          If you are getting a "substandard" warning, that usually means your hubs are too short. I think the absolute minimum is around 300 words? Anything shorter is considered a blog post and not suitable to HubPAges.

            I had written the hubs longer than 400 words, with no spelling mistakes and grammatical errors, but I got a warning of "Sub-Standard", which happens every time I publish a new hub.

          I was trying to help.

          You got some of your hub from here:

          http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs312/en/

          Theirs:

          "After 15 years of diabetes, approximately 2% become blind, and about 10% develop severe visual impairment."

          Yours:

          "After 15 years of diabetes, approximately 2% become blind, and about 10% develop severe visual impairment"

          Theirs:

          "Diabetic neuropathy is damage to the nerves as a result of diabetes, and effects up to 50% of people with diabetes."

          Yours:

          "Diabetic neuropathy is damage to the nerves as a result of diabetes, and effects up to 50% of people with diabetes."

          Theirs:

          "More than 80% of diabetes deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries"

          Yours:

          "About 80 % deaths occur in low and middle-income countries"



          They are almost identical to the original, that is plagiarism. Unless they copied you...

          I know you are dealing with statistics and facts but you still must rewrite them.

            Hello Uninvited Writer,

            My hub about Diabetes, was my original content. I saw the link you have given above, and I was really surprised to see some lines matching with my content. I had not copied anything from it.

            It does not mean that my rest hubs are plagiarized from somewhere else, if a few lines of a webpage matches with one of my hubs. I had not idea about it. Although, you cannot call that hub as a duplicate content because it was just an information to the readers.

            The hubs that were given Sub-Standard warning were fully unique and did not have any grammatical errors. Whenever I publish a new hub, it gets a Sub-Standard warning.

            I am really thankful to you for helping!

    If you go to my profile and look for an article called flagged for duplicated content you will find a tool that high lights all the areas in your article that is duplicated.  The tool also has a keyword density checker as well

    I received the same message some days ago. After making sure that the text in my hub hadn't been copied from any other source, I sent an email to the hubpages team and everything is ok now. Try this way if you believe there are nothing wrong with your hubs.

      Thanks also to ajayshah2005 for posting the question.  I do not have an answer, but I learn from the responses. Thanks for sharing, timburton287.  I was not aware that responding to the HubPages team was acceptable (not that I will).  The other suggestions in the comments are also very helpful.
