I have a couple of hubs which are too long and need splitting. I'm worried that if I just split and post the two halves (under different titles of course) I will get hit by google for duplicate content if it compares the new pages to the cached copy of the old page. I hope that makes sense.
Has anyone split pages before with or without problems?
Also would it be ok to keep the old URL for one of the new pages?
I haven't ever published a hub and then split it, but I have planned a series of hubs that was initially one big hub, and then published them separately. If it's more than several hundred words, I usually consider doing this.
I'd split it.
If you delete the original, then Google will find that out when it crawls that page again. It shouldn't result in any loss of Google love.
My mantra is do what's best for your readers, and you'll be suitably rewarded by the Search Engines.
Don't write for a search engine, write for your audience. If you follow all the bots rules and commands you will get almost no one reading your material because it would be so "pixelated" by your adjustments. Just split it.
Thx all. I will split the pages but give a lot more thought to what I am doing in future.

What do you think is more efficient? Writing one very long article or splitting it into different articles? When I say "efficient" I suppose I mean which one will get me more money, bring my hubscore up, get...
