I recently had one of my Hubs flagged for revision because it's a duplicate. This particular Hub is a photography post, with seven of my own original photos, paired with descriptions. I truly don't understand how I could have duplicated the work of someone else. Does this mean that someone copied my Hub? This is the first time this has happened to me. I contacted the HubPages to see if I could get some answers. Has anyone else had this happen to them?
Have you published it anywhere else. It would still be a duplicate even if you wrote it. Hubs must be unique to HubPages.
Check out the forum link to the plagiarism comments. There is a big thing going on with a site that is copying all our work.
Using a Plagiarism checker works for me to find where any duplicate content may be at on the web. I use the one below and it works well for me.
You can enter the hub text or the url into this tool.

My most recent hub was flagged for duplicate content by an automated system. I have read my e-mail, the Learning Center, and the "help boxes". They all tell me, "This Hub seems to contain text that also appears on another page and may be unpublished as a result. If you revise the...
