Is it possible to import our blog posts directly to our HubPage Hub?
HubPages does not accept duplicate content. So it certainly would not be a good idea.
You can do that after removing them from your previous blog. You will just need to wait for them to get removed from Google search index and then you can post them here. Otherwise you can request Google to remove those URLs manually.
No, HubPages deliberately discourages that because they don't want content which has already been published elsewhere.
Marisa and Dale might not have seen this Learning Center topic and that is why they are discouraging you to import your content from other website to Hubpages
http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/How- … ne-Content
It clearly mentions the way to safely import your published content elsewhere to HubPages
I'm sure they knew that, they just told Purrington not to use the same content. If they're blog posts they may be small and won't do quite well as hubs either. However, if they're pages published somewhere they may do well.
There's a difference between "importing" your content to HubPages and "copying over" or "moving".
When you "import" content to a site, it usually means that you upload the content as a file, and it automatically populates. For instance, you can import posts from a Blogger blog to a Wordpress blog (or vice versa) and the posts will be created automatically.
The only way to transfer your work to HubPages is to copy and paste it manually.
NO, It is considered to be duplicate content even if you had written it. Hubpages does not allow that.
And leaving your site URL's is considered spamming.
I asked a question above in good faith. In response I get yelled at with a "NO" and my post is Deleted. This is not a very friendly method of treating a newcomer. I shall not be posting here any longer in the future. Bye Bye.
Your post has been deleted because of the URL.. they are the forum rules. Marisa had already given you the answer and you had repeated the question again.. sorry the intention was not to yell.. but to emphasize.. the point. The decision to post or not is yours.. I was only trying to tell you something that you ought to know as a newbie.
I am honestly not getting this. If the content is already removed from the search index what's the harm in publishing that content here?
If it is removed from search index then it will be not considered duplicate when posted here. Isn't that what is written in the Learning Center link I gave above?
Ankit, Yes you are right, but the it seems the OP did not get the point, he was repeated asking if he could ' import ' it which could mean he could have it at both the sites...
Moving the content after having it de-indexed would have been better... but somehow blog post kind of content may not work here as it is ... IMHOP
Unless blogs are written article style.
He was quick to throw in the towel despite the fact that we were trying to help.
I did not take the meaning of 'import' that seriously. If it means keeping the content at both places then of course that is not allowed.
Thanks for the explanation.
copying your blog post and then re-published it on HP is not encouraged.
It could harm your subdomain.
