I'm migrating an article from my blog to hubpages. I've been able to get around the duplicate content filters in the past by ensuring that I have my 301 permanent redirects setup before publishing--it always works.
I forgot to do that on the latest article I'm trying to publish, and of course the dupe content filter tagged me. I have since updated the 301 redirect to point to hubpages on my blog, but the content filter is still saying duplicate. I have searched the web, there are no other articles, but the one I published (I used copyscape to check).
How long does it take for this dupe content filter to refresh?
You can remove the URL from search by doing so on your webmaster tools dashboard. I am usually able to migrate content immediately by doing that. Here is what you do, given that you have verified your subdomain and blog.
1) Select website
2) on left click Google index
3) From there select remove URLs
4) Create a new removal request
5) Enter the URL of the page you wish to remove
6) Follow whatever instructions you get
Wait at least 24 hours but in most cases it's removed within a couple of hours.
To answer your question: As long as there is a cached version on the net it may take up to two weeks, even longer. Follow the steps above and Google will also remove cached pages.
If I move an article I usually wait about 10 days before publishing it here.
Well the article is no longer on the web, it's pointing to a redirect to hubpages, so just not sure why it isn't changing?
Cardisa I tried your recommendation. The link was removed but im still getting the message
Cardisa, nevermind, I realized I didnt do it correct, retrying

I know hubpages prohibits writers from having duplicate content. My problem is understanding what that exactly means. I heard from many that it means writers can't publish content here that already exists elsewhere, but...
