I am planning on taking a long trip. I am going to write about it here on Hubpages. My question is can I use some of my hubs to create an e-book about the trip or would that be considered duplicate content? ...what say ye?
Seems like a question for the Powers That Be Brie.

Yeah..but the forum is faster..especially on a Saturday. If I don't get an authoritative answer I'll write them on Monday.
Please let us know what the higher ups say about your questions. Logically you own your hubs so if nothing else you could un-publish which is something you probably don't want to do The other thing is that a book that mentions Hub pages may make them happy. I am looking forward to what they say.
I'm not sure about this, but I do know that HP does not allow content that has been published elsewhere and that you can only republish hubs if you first remove them from HP.
However, that may only refer to online writing.
Also, HP is a brand name. Check with them first if you plan on using it in any way as you may be in violation of copyright doing that.
No, it definitely would not count as duplicate content. Several Hubbers have published ebooks using their Hubs as content.
The difference is that the content of an ebook isn't published on a web page anywhere, it's inside the book.
The answer to this question will help us all... Have a good trip Brie!

Let's say you're writing for Hubpages but you created your own blog to help promote your work. So for every article you publish on Hubpages, you include...say... the first two paragraphs of it on your blog and link back to the full article on Hubpages. Would that be looked at as "duplicate...

What is duplicate content?When I get flagged for duplicate content, it kind of breaks my heart, especially when I write something that is totally original - no quotes, no links, etc. I see so many "duplicate" hub oriented hubs and wonder why they exist without being flagged as duplicate...

I have several hubs about various quotations. All have been published without problems, yet since the change of subdomains 3 of these same type of hubs (on different subjects or different authors) have been flagged as duplicate. The quotes on all of the hubs under this subject are found from a...

I am pretty new to Hubpages and writing on the internet in general. So I only have a few Hubs. My problem is that I just had one of my hubs unpublished for Duplicate content. From what I gather the hub was published for all of two days and then taken down. I had people comment and vote on my hub as...
