    Is this a good idea? If so, how does that work?

      You can publish your content on HubPages or another site, but not both at the same time.
      In order to publish content on another site that is currently published on HubPages, you will need to delete or unpublish the content from HubPages, otherwise it can be moderated as duplicate.

      Are they offering to pay you?  Are you happy with the payment offered?

      If they are not going to pay you, then it could be very damaging to allow them to reprint your Hub in its entirety.   On the other hand, if they want to quote a paragraph and then provide a link so readers can visit the Hub to read the rest, that could be very beneficial.

      The reason it's damaging to reprint your whole Hub is this:  when the Google finds a duplicated  article, it will include only ONE of them in search engine results.  Unfortunately you can't tell which one it will choose!

      In your case, if Google chooses the reprint, then you'll never get any visitors to your Hub.   Even if there's a link at the end of the reprinted version, readers have no reason to follow that link if they've already been able to read the whole article. 

      Far better to let them publish just an extract, so there's no problem with duplication, and readers who do find the reprinted version will follow on to your Hub to read the rest.

        Thanks, Marisa
        They did not offer to pay me. I did tell them they could put a link on their page and I would do the same but I have not heard back yet. I appreciate your help:)

          I hope you understood from my post that if they publish the whole article, and not just an excerpt, then a link will do nothing to offset the damage publication could cause.

          If you let them publish even an excerpt, you are doing them a favour so there is no need for you to link TO them at all, and it's not recommended.

            Thanks, Marisa
            I have not heard back from them, did check the site and don't see my hub there and did not link to them.

    Hey its nice to be asked, instead of the usual copy and paste. I agree that a summary and link is best for you.

      Thanks, Stacie
      I guess it was good they asked instead of just doing it...I will check from time to time though.
