Several weeks ago I deleted a lot of my work from another site. I want to bring it to HP. Despite having removed dozens of articles, it appears that many are still online at the other place. I discovered this when the dreaded "duplicate content" alert appeared on an article I posted here at HP the other day.
I have contacted the other site yet again, but they are not responding. How can I force the issue with them, and get rid of the "duplicate content" alert?
Which other site was it? Have you checked their terms and conditions - some sites do not allow you to delete articles even if you leave. That's something you should always check before you even start writing on a site.
Usually, if a site allows you to delete your articles, you can delete them manually yourself and that's what you're expected to do (that's what you would do if you left HubPages).
It is bubblews. Yes, I do have the option to remove my work there. Every post has a delete option, just like Hubs. I had been manually deleting, but they were still appearing. I spoke to another member there, who thinks they may be having tech issues.
I have sent an email directly to the mods to find out.
Be aware that every time you remove an article from Bubblews you are expected to return the money you made from it. You might be wiser to just leave the articles there, re title and reword them and post them as new hubs here.
Really? If that's true, that's scary. Do you have a link to further info?
If that is true, it sure could cause major problems for many. Can you document that information, TT2?
I have removed articles from Bubblews and have never been asked to return any money made on an article I removed.
I have just received an email from them asking for my username so they can close my account. When I went to log in to verify it (I forgot about spaces in usernames here at HP!) I discovered they had deleted my account "due to spam."
Spam?!?! To quote the greatest comic team ever put on this planet, "I don't like spam!" Nor do I write it, post it, or tolerate it!
I have posted eight Hubs here in a fortnight, at least seven of which are featured.
As far as I am concerned, they have done me a favour. Now I can bring my works here to a place that appreciates quality writing from quality writers.
So what if I have lost $12.83US. I write for the writing, not the money
When you say "they were still there", do you mean they were on the site, or in Google reuslts?
It can take a few weeks for Google to remove them from results and that's what Hubpages checks for duplicate content.
Thanks everyone for your help. This has been sorted out now. Could someone from the HP Team please remove the thread?
Glad it all has been resolved for you, Bronwyn.
How long does it generally take for them to not be indexed anymore?
I have had a similar issue with Infobarrel. I can't find a way to delete articles I wrote there, but also can't find anyplace in the TOS that says they have a right to keep my work.

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...

Over 1/4 of my hubs have not been moved to a niche site. They do not have much traffic from Google, so it is not HPs fault that they have not been selected. There is nothing wrong with them, but they do not have "Google love" so are only moved in the slow process where I ask HP to move...

Just curious, but does anyone have experience with this? How'd you do it? Did you tell Google the article moved somehow or do anything else fancy? Or did you just copy, paste, delete from HubPages, and wait for Google to catch up?Im guessing there might be some duplicate content penalties from...

The article in question was "Good Title and Caption Ideas for Content Creators". Here is the link to the unpublished page at least showing the url (https://discover.hubpages.com/technology/Caption-Ideas). I published this article on 2-21-22. There is usually a 1 day wait time for...

It seems the News Capsule is now out of favour.That's a bummer, because over the last couple of years, it's been recommended as a great thing to add your Hubs to keep the content "fresh".As a result, I (and many other Hubbers) have a News capsule on every @##$%^& Hub. That means...

I rewrote, then deleted an article that I had written 10 years ago. The, I was wrongly accused of plagiarism, when it was my own article that apparently causing the problem. It was so frustrating, especially on a holiday weekend. It finally was cleared today. I have been writing here for 12 years...
