I have a story listed as a duplicate. I have since deleted it from the other site. How do I get...
its duplicate status changed?
You can either contact the Hub Team and have them manually review the Hub, or you can wait for the system to automatically rescan the Hub.
However, the system won't recognize the content here as being original until the cached copy of the first site is removed from search engines.
The cache thing is important. Copies of your blog or site pages can remain on Google "forever", even if you have deleted them from your blog or site, and interfere with your HubPage Hub status.
It is probably too late for existing pages, but on all new pages, make sure you have, in the header...
meta name="robots" content="noarchive"
meta name="googlebot" content="noarchive"
There may be other stuff in those lines, just add the above content portions.
You know, of course, to put angle brackets around each line (can't show them here as that would attempt make this comment have HTML which is not permitted by HubPages).
The only disadvantage of not letting Google archive pages is that if your server goes down, a searcher will not find your pages during that (usually) short time.

Why have people deleted their whole content?I have noticed that older users from a couple of years back have deleted their whole content. Why? Hubpages is a great site, not dodgy at all. I don't understand why.
