Two questions: I'm thinking of moving some Hubs from under a pseudonym I use to my actual name I use for most of my Hubs...anyone done this? Implications or problems? Second question: If I move those same Hubs off of Hubpages and to my own blog site, how hard is it for them to get 'refound' by readers via Google? Does the article still get listed as on Hubpages? Thanks for answers in advance!
Once you move a hub, it is as if it never existed. So if you publish it again, it will be like a new piece of content and its age with Google will reset. Also, if anyone has copied it anywhere, those pieces will appear as the original first article to Google.
Generally I'd say... don't move content.
What WryLilt is describing is what would happen if you just picked an article, deleted it and reposted it.
It's completely possible to move Hub content from one Hub account to another, or to another site, and not have issues with copies, etc, but 1) it takes some doing to do it right and 2) if it is an established Hub, you will be losing all of the accumulated maturity (linking, liking, whatnot) on that original Hub property.
But people move their content around all the time. It's a great way to shoot yourself in the foot if you don't do it right, and it can be just what stalled-but-rich content needs on a site where it's just not working.
You won't know which until after you move the content and see what happens or if you missed anything.

Is it advisable to delete non-performing Hubs, those with 0 pageviews a day, as a way to increase traffic in an attempt to increase ranking?How do you deal with low-performing hubs?thanks in...

When I first started at HubPages, I wrote several Hubs of around 800 to 900 words. Now the goals for creating quality Hubs include 1250 or more words of content. I've noticed that some Hubbers seem to be padding their Hubs with irrelevant or superfluous content to hit these goals, and I admit it...

Janderson posted something really important yesterday which I think everybody here needs to read http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/132621#post2759379.If he is correct in his assumptions (which it appears he might be), it is time for all of us to start making copies of all of our hubs (if we are...

In their teachings on writing stellar hubs, the HubPages staff has sometimes said that an ideal hub is 1,500 words long and has sometimes said that an ideal hub is 1,150 words long. Numerous hubs by hubbers on hubbing have recommended that a hub should be at least circa 400 to 500 words long, at...

Looks like another content sniper is at work, stealing our shizz from HubPages. This so called "music news" site has sniped at least four of my Hubs and it looks like there are many other pieces pinched from my fellow music Hubbers as well. If you've written any Hubs about music (any kind...

Hello, here's something I've been wondering about for a while.I have a few articles on another site, which has recently announced that it's no longer going to pay international contributors. So I'm thinking it would be a good idea to move a couple of them over to HubPages (where we're...
