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 However, if someone copies our content, we get an alert but our hub won't get unpublished as it's not our fault.
So what is to stop us copying our own hubs onto a blog of our own ???
Jus' curious ;-)
Previously, that was allowed as long as there was at least a week between publishing the hub and putting it on your blog, I think. However I'm not sure how the new rules change this.
I think that is one of the unquantified and inaccurate answers I've ever seen given in the four years I've been on this site.
Nothing can stop you from copying Hub content onto a blog of your own. After all, according to the HubPages TOS, you retain any and all copyrights to your work.
However if you are a person using AdSense, it is recommended that you do not run afoul of their guidelines for duplicate content.
I'm fully aware that we retain all rights to our content. However with all the recent changes I'm not sure if that's still accurate - Hubpages may at some time request that we take down content from here if we plan to post it elsewhere.
Once upon a time they allowed duplicate content to be posted here... things are changing.
And I said "I think".
I would like to see the basis of that original statement also..
BUT - your link is to Google WEBMASTER info and the word ADSENSE does not appear even once.
I can confirm Adsense has mentioned that they are on the road to removing sites which completely compose of duplicate content from the Adsense Program, I will dig out the link later. It was in a press release to advertisers talking about ways they will be increasing the value of their publisher portfolio in the future.
Adsense currently will ban any site or publisher who infringes on copyright (Not black and white, a person with only one copyrighted article on their site without permissions probably wont get banned, however sites that syndicate content from sites such as article base may be in real trouble since they constantly have copyrighted content posted on there without permission).
According to this official blog post, the hub will not be unpublished where the material was first published on HubPages, then copied.

However, HubPages will still view it as duplicate if it appears on both places.
mmmm I was thinking for adsense purposes .. maybe not a great idea then
I don't see how it is technically feasible for HubPages to distinguish between material posted elsewhere by the Hubber (self-duplication) or by a third party (licensing or plagiarism). If they were to tighten the rules even further, Hubbers whose material has been "stolen" would end up seeing their hubs unpublished, and the "thieves" would in effect have gained ownership over the contents.
thats not the point - the comment was harsh in regular form with that particular commenter yet the link failed to be "accurate or quantified"
the thread was never about copyright violations, the OP was asking about duplicating his own content

Hi all, I have just had my first experience of having a hub unpublished, and have been given a duplicate content notification. It's a hub I was very happy with, as the structure and content came very naturally, and was...

Does anyone know what percentage of a hub can be "duplicate content"? I have a hub that was unpublished because it had a lot of statistics on it...so I am wondering if I can add content to make it ok?

I know hubpages prohibits writers from having duplicate content. My problem is understanding what that exactly means. I heard from many that it means writers can't publish content here that already exists elsewhere, but...
