I have a series of articles posted on my Wordpress blog, since I wrote them, I thought I could submit them here too (naive, I guess?) As I was posting one I went ahead and added some new paragraphs..Is this considered duplicate or worse, unacceptable? I want to do what's right.
When I first started writing at Hubpages I learned that when I copied and pasted a paragraph or two while creating a new Hub I was immediately warned and it was not published. I was told to change it. Over time I learned how to write many articles, hubs and blogs on the same topic but always wrote new and original content.
It does not matter if they are yours or not. If you publish something here that is already on the Internet HP will flag it as duplicate.
I'd say publish whatever doesn't fit your website's niche on hubpages and keep the rest on your site
Thanks guys..problem is, my website's niche is the same topic I want to hub about..it's what I know, but rules are rules
I write many articles the same topic/subject BUT I always create new and original content and add at least one Tidbit of different information. I recently put together a hub called keyword mixers. I feel you would find it very helpful. I explain step-by-step how I create new work at different website on the same topics and subjects.
Let me know if it helps you.
Well, technically you can submit them here, but by using content that's already on the web 1) you will automatically get a reduced score and 2) if there are any outgoing links, the hub will be flagged as overly-promotional.
So, if you like to avoid both of those situations, you should stick to original content.
No, no links..purely informative... my blog is recent and I am still tweaking it and getting the hang of it in terms of SEO stuff..so no links on that post
So if I want to keep a good score I should delete the post in question?
Delete or re-write them enough so that they are no longer duplicate.
I have taken the same topic and written the same basic information, just presented in a new way, three to four times and never had a duplicate flag on it... even though the basic information was the same.

I was reading a Hub on Hubpages, and was concerned to read the advice that the content we use in our Hubs should be unique, not something we've posted elsewhere on the net.I started out on Helium and have nearly 200...

HubPages has no problem allowing its users to post duplicate content. This dupe content could rightfully belong to the person who posted it, or it could be stolen -- in fact, a lot of it is stolen. I don't know for...
