I hope and pray that nothing every happens to HP, but just in case, I think it would be wise to create backup copies of all your hubs. There has been some discussion on this in the forums, but I have not seen any easy solutions, and wanted to share with you guys what I do
For those of you who are using a Mac, I use a program called Site Sucker that allows me to easily create backup copies of all my hubs in about one minute...basically, it accesses your RSS feed and siphons all the content through the software, then saves it in a neatly organized folder on your hard drive
You can check it out at sitesucker.us
Hi! Is this better than just simply using the Print feature and the bottom of each hub into a PDF? There are free conversions from pdf to Word in case you would want to edit it for a switch from HubPages to something else.
Another way is this one Jacob. Would you mind if I post this one - this is by one of the hubber Eric Graudins - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2aUmTRrEsyE - Aussie accent but you can easily understand it
Thanks. I never even considered the possibility of having to back up my hubs.
I just keep the text of my hubs as a word file, with details of where I got the illustrations from and acknowledgements required noted below the main text. This is actually the file I prepare when I write a new hub. I copy and paste the content into hub capsules.
If something happened to HP, the final format our hubs appear in on here would be irrelevant. If I want to move hubs, the same thing applies. If a temporary glitch on HP destroyed a hub, it would only take me a couple of minutes to recreate it once things were back to normal.
I write everything in Word and copy/paste to my Hub capsules. I always have a backup copy of my Hubs as well as everything else I write online. Word is easier to work with than the Hub capsules anyway when I'm trying to hash out a rough draft.
Is it against the rules to copy your own hubs to your own website and post them there? Given the declining traffic this may provide an alternative. It means the articles are stored in HTML with layout etc.
Looks like its against the rules unless unpublished on hubpages first.

I'm very grateful to Hubpages for putting the little red C on our dashboards to warn us when our content has been copied.It didn't take me too long to hunt down the content thieves on a couple hubs and send out DMCA...

Can anyone please take a look at my hubs and give me some insight. Highest score was 78 now they are falling. I have 6 hubs none higher than 73 and most in low 60s.
