    I just wrote an article, I always check in copyscape before submitting my articles, copyscape gave me 0 results for my article.

    I click "submit" on ezine and I get this :

    "Thank you for your submission to EzineArticles.com titled "XXXXXX".
    Unfortunately, our system has identified your article content as being the same, similar or contains parts the same as an existing article in the EzineArticles.com Directory.
    Per our Editorial Guidelines, we do not allow duplicate article submissions and each submission must be unique. If you feel this may be in error, feel free to contact us."

    How is this possible???

    What do you think guys?

    P.S. I contacted support, but still no response

    It could be a complete fluke. Ask them for the article source that they think yours is similar to, they should give it you.

    I believe Copyscape only show articles which are indexed... Ezine may have similar articles and they may not have been indexed and That's why you getting this message.

    Best option as Homenet suggested would be to contact them, if you believe your copy is genuine.

    I have had this problem before. I was submitting articles re-written by me using another trusted website as the source. Ezine, later found out about that website ( like after 3 submissions ) and when I submitted the 4th article they denied the article when copyscape NEVER gave me any duplicate results or copies.

    Possible reasons for this can be:

    1) Ezine has a much better bot or system to scan and verify the articles than copyscape does.
    2) Someone ( a competitor ) probably reported your articles to the ezine staff.
    3) Copyscape is dying ! I haven't seen em update anything a while. Maybe their index is much smaller than we think it is.

    Anyways, I suggest you re-write the article, go in a completely different direction with it.. submit like 3-4 high quality original articles to gain the trust and then submit a bit lower quality articles.

    That is what I did, I got my account promoted to level 2 after submitting just 3 articles :) And all of my articles are doing great in the serps.

    happened to me few times, they even banned my account for it.

    All I do is keep on trying or use those articles writing services in the buy/sell section.

    Yep I had this happen to me and they banned my account. Found it kind of funny is that I wrote the article and did not use any other source for information. Come to find out one of the editors took the article that I submitted and posted to there account. Since I had a basic account it took awhile to get mine approved but since they had plat account there when live. Not sure if this has happen to anyone else.

    Don't trust Copyscape. I was using Copyscape premium the other day and out of boredom searched for one of my articles that I published on Ezine months back. It said no results, I did this with a few others and still no results. I used a free plagiarism tool and they found all of the articles that Copyscape couldn't.

    On the other hand I also had Ezine reject an article that they said was similar to another one that they had and I just sent them a ticket and they published it.
