Duplicate Hub

    Hello All,
    Some of you write in places beyond HubPages (as I do)... one of those sites where I have written is preparing to close.
    I've written a piece there (which I retain the rights to), and I'd like to bring that piece to HubPages.
    In order for the submission to not be considered a duplicate here, if I take it off that site first, will HP accept it? Is there a minimum waiting period required before re-publishing here? The other site allows me to post the content in two places, but I realize HP has different rules.
    Thanks in advance for any help!

      I usually cut and paste all the content to a Hub, delete the content, wait 10 days and then publish here.

      Yup. You need to wait for a few days after deletion. Then you can post it over here. I tried that myself

    Once you remove that piece from the original site, you might want to go to:
    https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/removals?pli=1

    To de-index it from Google - it may take a day or two to go to the full process. After the waiting period, google your piece and see if anything comes up.

    Then, you might want to run your piece through:

    http://www.dustball.com/cs/plagiarism.checker/

    to make sure it doesn't show up as an already published article.

    It doesn't hurt to ask HP either, so you know you are doing it right.

    Good luck.

      Plagiarism checker - what a fun tool - can this be used to see if people are copying our hubs?

    Here's the link to the article in the Learning Center where HubPages talks about duplicate content and what they allow.

    Hmmm...I guess you have to delete it there. Then, you ask Google to delete it too from the search engines. Then, you can safely re-publish it here. big_smile
