I think I've asked this before, but I'd love to get an answer from a staffer, if possible.
I've got 70 hubs on another account. Only one is doing well, some are so-so, but the majority need a good revamp. I'd really like to move them to my main account.
How soon after unpublishing them on their existing account am I able to republish them on my main account without running the risk of a duplicate content violation?
I seem to recall that the last time someone asked this, they said they'd improved their duplicate filter and you only needed to allow a few days.
Of course you've got to check they haven't been stolen too.
So if I unpublished them and left it for, let's say 10 - 14 days, I should be okay? I can start with the bottom feeders. I'll check each one for theft and rewrite, if necessary - quicker than DMCA-ing.
After you have unpublished your content it should be removed from search engines in a few hours, but you should check before you republish to avoid a duplicate moderation. Also, as Marissa Wright said, make sure your content has not been stolen before you unpublish. Please visit the FAQ for instructions on how to transfer content.
I personally have 3-4 Hubpages accounts, all of them with content (only 2 pay out monthly though).
My one question would be - are you losing any age or backlinks by deleting the hubs and starting from scratch?
The date you transfer your article to a different HubPages account will be the date it is considered first published. If you unpublish an article and create a new one with the same content you will lose backlinks because the URL has changed.
