I want to move some hubs from one account to my main one but am worried I will get a duplicate content message. Does anyone know if there is a recommended time to have a page unpublished before one can republish without a problem occurring?
What I would suggest, is cut and paste the text from your Hubs to the word processor you use. Then delete the Hubs. I would allow 2 - 3 days.
Then just repost them on your new account. I would also check with the Google Webmaster Tools that the old URLs have been removed as well.
Hope that helps.
Before doing this, be absolutely sure there are no sites that have copied your hubs. Otherwise you'll both set off the duplicate content filter and make it difficult to file DMCA reports to fix the situation. Two to three days is nowhere near long enough to wait unless you get Google to clear the URLs from search results first. It can take them several business days to do so after your request.
I just dealt with removing my old Bubblews URLS from Google searches late last year because I got tired of waiting for Google to dump them automatically a couple of weeks after Bubblews shut down.
It's slightly off topic but it may be helpful for the original poster.. Can we still use the google webmasters tool?
I've read somewhere in this forum that ever since the site reverted the format to hubpages categories rather than a seperate domain per user, we cannot use the GWMT anymore to track the pages.

Prompted by a comment in another thread, I thought it would be useful to perhaps slightly change the way that we commonly think about changes to hub scores, hubber scores and the like. Rather than see them as a...

I know the more exposure we have, the more chances for page views. That is not what I am asking about here. I am wondering if we are effected by the quantity of hubs over the quality of maybe a smaller number of hubs.I...
