Good evening all,
I'm setting up a blog where I'm going to have links to my hubs, and I wanted to put in a few lines of copy before the link. Is that permitted? Or am I going to get flagged for duplicate copy if I put in like the first couple of lines in the blog and then a link to the full hub here on HP?
If that's your only reason for having the blog in the first place, then I do believe that you can get flagged. It's like having a blog where all the content is just trackbacks to other sites.
Actually I don't see it as any worse than setting up backlinks through RedGage or a similar site, and people here do that all the time. I think the safest thing to do, though, is just to write a paragraph of new copy with each link. That should work.

ok ... so if we copy content from another site on to a hub, it won't get published .. fair enough and I agree. However, if someone copies our content, we get an alert but our hub won't get unpublished as it's not our...

I just published a Hub & got a notice of duplicate content. What is duplicate is verbatim quotes from historical documents that are of course available on the web. The quotes are the basis & reason...
