    Anyone moved idled hubs to CC?  If I do that, how long should I wait between deleting here and submitting there? Thanks!

      Greetings Habee,
      You can submit your deleted URL to Google webmasters tools and it only takes approx. 24hrs for it to disappear from index and cache - then you can submit to CC

        This is very helpful information. I was just wondering. Now I think I can put up some of my hubs for sale. smile

        Anywhere you like, but you have to wait until they have completely disappeared from Google search results.  If you're not sure how to check that, the simplest solution is to wait a month.  I know that sounds like a long time, but personally I find I have lots of other things to do in the meantime.

    habee, Good question. If I remember the HP rules from years ago, we are "not allowed to publish our content on other sites if we publish on HP."
    When I deleted an old Hub last week, there wasa statement that came up that it would be deleted from HP within 24-hours. And it was. So, I am assuming that you are within the rules once they delete your hub, or 24-hours later.
    They do mention that they will keep an "archived copy"  for a certain period of time, in case you change your mind.
    So, with all of this, I am taking their 24-hours as the point that I can re-use my IDLED Hubs with another site.

      I say that's a good way to go, though keep in mind that if another site to which you are uploading content also has rules about duplicate content, it may take several days before their internal checks realize that the content is no longer published elsewhere.
      I would recommend waiting around a week to be on the safe side. smile

        good Point Silmone. If your works are prolific and wide spread, your problem can turn into a chore.

    Thanks, guys! I only have a few idled hubs, and most can find homes on my blogs. I think I'll submit the "orphans" to CC.

    I'm new to HubPages but not new to the web. I always deindex on Google webmaster tools as suggested by GA Anderson above. That way you know when the articles are definitely deindexed and it only takes about 24 hours till they are. It's a waste of time to wait a month or whatever it is if you ask me, especially if you've already got somewhere else to put your hubs.

    Unless things have changed over at CC, you can't delete your hubs over there. They keep them.  Hope that has changed.

    Soooooooooooo what is CC short for? 

    I have been deleting hubs recently and just waited the 24hrs until they were deleted here before I posted them on another site.

      Constant Content... as mentioned in the OP. First I have heard of them, too. Are they any good?

    You could try Squidoo, or are people over here not too fond of that site. There seem to be a few similarities between here and there.
