I've been writing for some time and have over 350 articles written. It would be a shame and a waste of time to write them all over again to avoid plagiarizer myself. What's your suggestion? Thanks.
I'm no expert, but as I understand it, if they are posted elsewhere on the internet, you will have to take them down and wait for them to be de-indexed before you can publish them on HubPages. If they are not published on the internet, and you are the true owner of them, it's OK to post them on HubPages.
You may not have a choice. if you've already published them elsewhere, it's against the HP TOS to publish them here. Plus the duplicate filter will catch them. You're only choice is to rewrite them, unpublish them or write knew ones.
The other thing you could do would be to write "sub articles." Write more articles on the same subject, but a different or more detailed aspect of the subject.
Google penalizes sites that have lots of content found elsewhere. And if it's your own content, posting it on multiple sites could cause Google to downrank it so even the original gets less traffic.
Hence Hubpages' TOS. Most reputable publishing sites have added a "no duplicate content" rule lately to avoid getting dinged by Google.
It may seem like a lot of work, but if it were a traditional book, consider what Simon & Schuster would do with your manuscript if you'd already published it with Houghton Mifflin.
When I first started here, I used an article that came straight from my blog. I got dinged for duplicated copy. So I wrote the piece over and published it on HubPages. I have written work hanging around my home, but I don't care to get more mileage out of them by doing rewrites. That's up to the writer. Personally, I don't like going down Memory Lane. I like the current stuff that I create.

People have suggested I join Infobarrel so I did. I unpublished and deleted a hub here about La Guancha in Tenerife and thought I would use it as my first InfoBarrel article. The first problem I ran into was it said I was using a keyword too much. The keyword was roses and I was saying that there...

I recently joined your HubPages. I was browsing thru FAQ and found the question on ownership. It said that you do not assign ownership to any hubber. It didn't answer the question for me. Who owns the content? Do I or you?best regards,june marie

I've been approached by a number of specialized sites regarding a number of my articles on Guitar product reviews. Obviously I was quite proud and humbled to be even considered to write content for these sites, some of which are huge, but all I'm getting in return is a back-link to my hubpages...

Do you prefer articles written by someone with experience on topic or just researched it?If you are reading about something important to you, do you prefer the author actually have experience with the topic, or is researching and presenting you with facts they have read enough?

Are we allowed to republish our articles elsewhere and keep the original hubs here in the mean time?

I constantly see people who threaten to leave HP because they don't like the limitations here. Unless you are a professional writer who does this for a living, I think you should be careful about doing this and here's why.While you may get more views someplace else, this does not necessarily...
