Hubs need revision - duplicate material

    I am 75 and I've been blogging for some years.
    I would like to be able to share some of my thoughts and provide links to some of the material I have been writing over the years.
    My hubs are flagged as duplicate material (something copied from my own blog) and now one has been rejected completely.
    Any advice would be appreciated.

      I think these may help:

      http://hubpages.com/faq/#duplicate_content
      http://hubpages.com/faq/#overly_promotional

      Each hub should be an original, stand alone article of quality content.

      If an article is commercial in nature, it MUST be original content even if it is content which you own and have you posted on your own website in the past. HB do allow duplicate content, but they will make you aware of the fact and it may be reflected in your hub score.
      My advice would be to use HP to write new content and then simply use your website to link to this content.

        I'd probably recommend the opposite. Use hubpages to link to the website - since a backlink from hubpages can increase a low rank site fairly fast in some cases.

        Of course it's a wise idea to only backlink to your site from relevant hubs, not all of them, Pete.

          Thanks for your help.  I now have a better understanding.
