I just got done writing this LOOOOOONG hub that was about 3,000+ words and it was all from my own notes on a documentary I saw and some other information added in there... so I was writing the hub from my own words, the notes, into my own words once again, the hub.
I had the window open a long time, maybe that's part of the problem, but when I went to publish it... it said that a lot of my content was on other pages?
So I figured I'd go through, copy and paste the contents of a text capsule into Word, then delete it and try to publish the hub... good idea, right? It'd tell me right away which capsule had the "guilty" content in it.
So I started with the first capsule that had the introduction in it... copy, paste, delete, publish... it worked! It published it without any duplicate content error!
So I decided to check and see if that capsule really was a problem and popped it right back in, and saved it... no duplicate content warning?
So... was the first warning a faulty warning? Or what's up?
Sounds like it was a hiccup. That's a technical term.
I hope so... I don't want to have to try to re-write a hub of that length haha
If it does happen again, it will probably be a separate issue and may mean that it was stolen.
Edit: So don't go re-writing it.
Yeah I'm not planning on re-writing it... I'll just wait and see.
If it pops up again I guess I'll start editing that intro and go from there... I have already dealt with people stealing my content; it's not fun having to contact them to take it down.

Over the past couple of months I've been slowly reorganizing my content by niche. This means moving Hubs from one subdomain to another, as well as moving content from elsewhere on the web to HubPages. More often than not, each time I try to move a Hub I trigger the darn duplicate content...

Got a bunch of duplicate content warnings and I am not sure if Hubpages found duplicate content in my Hubs or on the web. If Hubpages finds duplicate content, how hard is it for them to share with us where they found it and what exactly they found? It sure would save and lot of time and...

I know hubpages prohibits writers from having duplicate content. My problem is understanding what that exactly means. I heard from many that it means writers can't publish content here that already exists elsewhere, but can publish here first and then publish it elsewhere. My concern is if I were...
