I have published several articles through Triond, but would like to post some of these on HubPages.
What is the correct procedure on HubPages? Should one delete the article from the other site? For how long should it be off the other site before one can publish on HubPages?
What you are asking is whether duplicate content is allowed on Hubpages. No. You need to write quality unique content. Also, Google is not favouring duplicate content and the search engines may not index it.
Duplicate content (where there are more than two copies of one piece of work on the 'net) is not allowed on Hubpages.
The best thing you could do is delete the articles from Triond, wait for Google to de-index them (you can check this by simply putting an article link into Google and checking the cache).
Once the articles are de-indexed you can republish them here.
WL, what if someone has already copied their articles to a blog or something?! Ever thought about that?
Since early March, Hubpages has had a blanket ban on all forms of duplicate content. That means that if it's published on a blog first, then it can't be published here.
If, on the other hand, someone wished to publish it on a blog after publishing it here, they could do so. However that's rather a silly thing to do, since you have two pieces of work ranking for exactly the same keywords. Better to rewrite with a new spin.
@WryLilt. "Duplicate content (where there are more than two copies of one piece of work on the 'net)"
You say that content that has more than two copies is not allowed. Does it mean that there can be two copies of the same content already on the Net and the third copy can be published on Hubpages?
I hope you are explaining what duplicate content is. If that is the case, it should be "content with more than ONE copy".
Only original content is allowed on HubPages now. It's the law!!
I'll be watchin' you!!
@sunforged. No intention on my part of teasing anyone. Just trying to sort out some latent ambiguity. And I hope no one would take offence at it, please.
I have pointed out this aspect because these days a lot of policy changes are taking place at Hubpages. Just to enlighten myself on the aspect.
I just encountered a similar problem with Ezine (and wrote a hub about it of course!) - on Ezine publishers can publish your article in full as it is so then you have loads of duplicates - one of my articles has been 'published' 8 times. That essentially means that I can't delete the original and put it somewhere else unless i get the published ones deleted first.... :-(
not a very odd problem on a site created for syndication - you would have no grounds to even get the duplicates deleted anyway

I just got hit by a duplicate content unpublishing of one of my articles. For the record, it is my own work which I had originally published on another platform and wanted to relocate here. After deleting the article...
