    Hi guys,
    I got a duplicate content warning for an article I added. The problem is that I had already uploaded an older version of my article in a different blog i created earlier. I removed the old blog now. Is it safe to publish my article again or will google cache the old content and if so for how long??

      You can go onto Google Webmaster Tools and request that the original article be removed if you still have the URL but bear in mind that there are other search engines that may still have it online.  Do a search to see if you can find it elsewhere.  If not, you'll be OK to repost.

        Thanks a lot. I am pretty sure the link is dead now. Will probably work on a couple other articles before I re-post it.

      as long as the link is removed, you can post them here.

    If you truly did delete the article from your other blog, you should be good. Maybe give it a day or two to let Google recognize it's no longer a site.

      Sure. I was also thinking of giving some time before re-posting it.
