    That involves a lot of steps. Besides, you've only been here 5-6 weeks; that's much too soon to give up on HubPages (if that's what you are doing). smile

    No, not at all. But Can I not have my hubs on my own website as well as on hubpages?

      You wrote them, so legally you can repost your articles on any site that will accept them.  But if you republish it on the web it will set off HP's duplicate content filter and HP will unpublish your hub.  If you'd rather have your articles on your own site, it's best to unpublish them here first.  Or, if you'd like to have the best of both worlds you can publish snippets of the articles on your site and then direct readers here. It's up to you to figure out which approach will get you more readers and make you more money.

          Glad to help.  The key point is that HP won't accept articles that appear anywhere else on the web, regardless of where they were published first.

          A lot of people who use HP transfer their really successful articles to their own sites to make more money. (The earnings from what you publish here are split with HP.)

    There is a lot of incorrect info out there about duplicating -

    1. As long as it's published on Hubpages FIRST, Hubpages will not take any action if you "duplicate" it elsewhere. I have duplicated several hubs and get plenty of traffic to both the hub and the content in question.

    2. The main issue people see with duplicate content is that you're "competing with yourself" in search results. If there are two articles with the same title, Google has to decide which one to rank higher.

    3. Matt Cutts himself says that duplicate content is fine when it's not spammy and won't impact the search algorithms other than deciding which to rank higher (if you duplicate the title.)

    However, until you're more experienced with online writing, I'd recommend avoiding duplicate content. You could do up a 100 word "teaser" and then link back to your hub though, using a different title (so you can rank for two sets of keywords).

      Okay, so just make new content or a "teaser" on a personal website related to the link I want the reader to read then add the link. Hmmm, yes very complicated. I have it on my list of things I want to do after I've been writing on here for a while. Thanks!

      HubPages has unpublished my hubs and given me the "duplicate content" warning email after other sites have ripped them off.  I had to contact HP  to explain that it wasn't me and get them republished.

        Hmmm, interesting. Okay, I will keep all of this in mind. Thanks for sharing smile

        calculus-geometry, some of my hubs have been duplicated over 100 times (especially my pregnancy ones) across forums, other websites etc. I'm surprised to hear they'd unpublish you for that.

          I have also had many hubs copied and if they are on a site that I think is going to help dog owners manage their pet´s health I do not try to get them taken down. HP has put a lot of "your hub has been copied" notices on my profile page but has never unpublished even one of them.

            Thanks. Do you just save them to your computer and post them in other places, may I ask?

          It was on a newer account with fewer hubs and a lower hubberscore.  I was actually quite shocked at how rude and condescending the email was considering how obvious it was that the scraper site had copied my hubs, and I don't think they would have sent that email to a more established account. It just another example of how HP treats is users very differently depending on the stats of the account!

    Hi Farawaytree... I write all everything on my word processing software first, then cut and paste it to the relevant capsules in the Hub Builder.

      Ah ha, okay. Do you use your work elsewhere?
