A few days ago, we created a Hub on HubPages to validate a couple of Tasks that we developed to post *form data to a HubPages Hub. We didn’t spend a whole lot of time on our new Hub; other than a contact form and an RSS module to pick up the feed from this blog, the entire Hub was composed of links and text posted via Splatforms. Today, the Splatforms Team received an e-mail from the HubPages Team regarding this Hub that we built:
Problem: Duplicate content, including:
* Text that appears in whole or large part on another site, even if you wrote the text or retain the copyright.
* Text that already appears in whole or large part on HubPages.
* Text copied from multiple sources.
* Substantial similarity to another work. This includes close paraphrasing, among other forms of misappropriation or copying of content (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Substantial_similarity for more information)
A link to your Hub: http://splatforms.hubpages.
Your Hub has been unpublished, giving you the opportunity to revise it. When you are ready to have HubPages review it again, please edit it and click the “Submit for Publication” button. We will then review your Hub and publish it if it appears to be unique. (An exception is typically granted only when quoting is done to a minimum, or some commonly-used, public domain, or historical phrases have triggered the duplicate content detector.) You will then get an email saying that the Hub has been cleared for publication and republished.
Here are examples of high-quality Hubs that you might want to take a look at:
Please do not submit your Hub for republication until all of the problems identified above have been addressed. Thank you!
