    Hi, I was wondering if it would be legitimate to repost one of my OWN articles from my blog onto HubPages if I were to remove it off my blog? I think HubPages would be a much better site to publish this particular article.

    Thanks in advance,

      Removing it from your blog is not sufficient. You will also have to remove it from the Google index to prevent duplicate flagging from dated cache.

      Here's what Google suggests you do:

      To completely remove an entire page from Google search results:

      On the Webmaster Tools home page, click the site you want.
      On the Dashboard, click Optimization on the left-hand menu.
      Click Remove URLs.
      Click New removal request.
      Type the URL of the page you want removed from search results (not the Google search results URL or cached page URL), and then click Continue. How to find the right URL. The URL is case-sensitive—use exactly the same characters and capitalization that the site uses.
      Click Yes, remove this page.
      Click Submit Request.

      Once you get the confirmation that the entire post has been removed, as far as I know, you're in the clear.
