Hello Guys! I need your advice. I have just read a message from Ireland asking me if they can include my hub Advice on Moving to and from Ireland in their ebook especially made for Filipinos. I want to but I am not yet sure if I am allowed to do that as it might be a duplicate from my hub here at Hubpages. Is there something I want to know if in case I would allow them to put it on their ebook. Please share your experiences and your advice. Thank you.
You can't publish anywhere it will be available online to be indexed by search engines because this will cause duplicate content issues (meaning Google will see the copy as stolen and potentially penalize any site it appears on other than here at HP). But if the ebook requires purchasing to read and/or is simply not made available to Google and other search engines, it shouldn't cause any issues.
You can use any article published on HP or anywhere else for that matter in an ebook. Even if you are giving the ebook freely. It cannot be considered a duplicate unless it is published on a platform similar to HP
Luis: I think you need to read Kristy's response as it directly opposes yours. I have been told what you advised by others here, but have never thought it would be wise to do. Google is Google, so anything online can be seen by them. My gut tells me Kristy is correct.
I published one of my articles about dog breeds on my blog since I thought I had deleted it already from HP. I had not, and I am pretty sure Google penalized my blog because of that. I am not sure of course but....
I think you are right and Kristy´s advice in this area is correct.
I have over three hundred articles from HP on my ebooks and I have never had an issue with Google. However, and I don't know or think it matters, my ebooks are not free.
I believe that anything that you publish on Hubpages can't be published elsewhere at the same time.
Duplication is not an issue as long as it is properly credited. At first, google may see it as duplicate, but when they manually check that there's proper accreditation (meaning with your name and source url), they would lift the penalty (if they would in the first place). However though, if you are not aware of syndication, news or not, like press releases, it is not entirely against Google's policy, seeing these sites that are syndicating articles word-for-word, aren't penalized as well. How do I know? I am an SEO analyst and I have a lifehack account where my articles are syndicated without my control - well, Lifehack hasn't been penalized at all! An ebook also is a good exposure.
If you are too concern still (probably you don't wanna break the rules of Hubpages), then you can tell that someone who approached you to rewrite/re-word your article and you can still ask for a link back or copyright your name. But the thing is, it may not work; this person might've been too lazy to write his own article, otherwise why bother asking your permission to use your article. He could've just rewrite using your article and brand it to himself.
Hope that clears or helps out...
Sorry, but this is not god advice, regardless of the personal experiences you have had. HP's rules state that you must produce original content here. Google penalizes duplicate content, aka, work you have written that appears elsewhere on the internet. You can ask for a link back to your work, but you cannot simply allow someone else to publish it online. It's pretty simple, really.
It is not personal experiences; It is the fact. Go and ask around big SEO company people or individual icons. Google doesn't penalize syndicated content, and especially if it has proper accreditation.
And even if it's just personal experience, well, there you have it - a proof that Google don't penalize if they see duplicated content. Aside from that, I have blogs that partially copies some sentences and both websites (the source and my site) are alive and healthy and wasn't de-indexed.
You are merely going along among the assumption of the vast majority and all the BS info they come up. Matt Cutts from Google says "I would not stress about that" (See the video here: http://searchengineland.com/googles-mat … mmy-167459)
And here's a more recent info for 2016 about duplicated content. Watch the video also, just scroll down a little bit: http://www.hobo-web.co.uk/duplicate-content-problems/
I guess it is more of a Hubpages thing that you are concerned about more than a Google thing.
Also, if the ebook is not going to be published online, why fret out?

I notice several disgruntled Hubbers on Eric's new Hub, saying they're leaving HubPages because of the duplicate content flags.They seem to be misunderstanding what the dup content flag is all about - either they think they're being penalized, or that the flag means they have to delete the Hub.I...

After deleting the article from the original site, I submitted a request with Google to have that deindexed...

Why those of us moving over from Squidoo should not try to transfer our lenses to HubPages manually:I just moved one of my recipes that's fairly new, and doesn't have a high search engine ranking, thinking I would use it as a way to become familiar with the HubPages tools. I deleted the Squidoo...
