I have a mystery concerning Word. I have always written in Word, then copy/paste to go into a text capsule on HP. I just realized my posts have disappeared from Word documents! I don't know what I am doing to cause that. Any ideas??
After I publish a hub, I share it on Twitter, G+ and Pinterest. My FB is private though, but I do have a FB writer's page is all. I never share my own hubs on HubPages though. However I have seen many who do share their own hubs here.
Not sure I have answered your question, being you are talking about saving your documents there. I write mine in Word and then copy and paste them into hubs, so I always have a copy of what I write here.
Did you mean keep a copy in your Google drive? google plus is a social media sharing thing, but you can keep backups of your documents in your Google drive and keep it private, I do this to back up many things.
You can share a blurb and link on Google plus to share your hubs with others, but to archive whole copies of your hub - put a copy onto Google drive in a backup folder.
Sorry I'm just now getting back to this . Google drive is a great place to store your work so that in the event of a major malfunction, you don't lose everything. I'm a bit over the top probably, but I save all my work to an external hard drive, on my google drive and on my regular drive - so I have 3 copies of everything.
One major catastrophe when I wasn't backing things up regularly set me on this path.
As for hubs I write in OpenOffice and copy and paste into hub capsules. I save the documents to Google Drive. I also have a list of all my titles/urls
The more places you share things the more likely you are to be able to recover them. I usually keep a list of the titles of what I write and the dates but unless they are long tailed titles and show up in the first few pages when Googled, they are hard to find. I should rather write down the URL's after publishing.
Because of deleting most of what I had written on that other site recently, I was able to locate most of the articles using various methods. Some were on Google+ and others pinned. Could probably have found others on twitter but that would have taken more time.
I should really save my articles but always thought that would take up too much space on the computer. Will have to rethink that!
I think I will get into the habit of copying the URL of my Hubs. I just wrote a new Hub on Google Drive and saved it. I was able to copy/ paste very well from there. It is so important to be able to find our Hubs in case we have to file a DMCA complaint. I learned that the hard way.
So .... I was just flagged for a hub I wrote last night. It was flagged as a duplicate.I didn't even cite anything in this hub. I quoted a bunch of stuff in my Anaconda piece and none of it was flagged as...
Purely because i find it so cumbersome having to keep opening twitter, copy paste and so on. Then because it doesn't always show the url we then have to write out the Title and so on. I know hubstaff took it down, but I...
Is it possible for HubPages to offer more protection against Hub theft? My articles keep being copied and pasted on other sites. Could you make it so the bad guys can't simply copy-and-paste the information?JohnMello
I know I've seen this elsewhere online, where you can't actually copy text or images. You can view pictures but not download them or even embed them. Would it be possible to do this at all? At least it would cut down on...
I don't get into these fights and disagreements with what HP does on a regular basis. But I looked at my Hubs and I only saw the four sites; Flipboard, Pinterest, Facebook and email in my share icons over the past week...
