    I am thinking of moving some of my hub content back to my blog, especially some of the Squidoo challenge lenses/hubs.
    How do I export the content please?
    Thank you for your attention.

      You must delete the hubs from HP, ask Google to de index them, wait a week or so, and then create them as brand new hubs on your new site.  To do otherwise will create a duplicate content problem and will give you problems.   There is no straight up way to "export" hubs.  When you move your work, you lose all images, videos, formatting, etc.  It's a great deal of work.

      You should be aware that during the waiting period someone may decide to copy your hubs onto their own site.  When this happens, they no longer are yours, and if you try to reproduce them as they were, you will not be permitted to do so due to duplicate content.  There will be no way for you to prove they were yours first, either because that info disappears when you delete them!

      I know how to copy and paste, silly.
      On Squidoo you could export the lens contents as XML and I was hoping that there was a similar tool on Hubpages.
      Oh well my 70 year old brain will have to think of something else. Thanks for the answers.

        Did you save any of your work on Word or a flash drive? That would make it a little easier to move your writing. It's really a pain to do it. Best Wishes though.
