I had a blog that had really good content, but didn't do really well because of a horrible domain name. When I purchased the domain I knew very little about SEO.
Anyway, I took a few of the best posts on that blog and made Hubs out of them. I also created a 301 redirect from each post on my blog to each corresponding hub.
How long will it take for the hubs I made to no longer be marked as duplicate content?
Hi Melanie and welcome. I believe HubPages only does the duplicate scan occasionally, so the mark won't disappear until they do the next scan. I wouldn't worry about it though.
A while ago, I deleted all the posts off my old blog and re-posted them on Today.com. At the time, Today was paying $1 per post but it had to be original content (and they checked every single post before they paid).
There was only a week or so between me deleting my posts and reposting them on Today, and several people told me that even though I'd deleted the posts, they would be on the internet "forever" in caches and archives etc, so it wouldn't work. But it did! I know they were checking, too, because I also posted a couple of my Helium articles (which I can't delete). I thought I'd made enough changes to avoid the dup content filter - but I hadn't, because they picked it up straight away.
If the content is actually still up on your blog, your Hubs will always be marked as duplicate content.
No, I took the content down and left the pages up, but they are blank.
Just make sure you use htaccess and 301 redirect those links. do not allow search engines to see your old pages. after that i will take the next google crawl of your old site. The best way would be to make hotlinks to your hubs using relevant keywords.
I most probably would have rephrased the old pages using synonyms and rewording and then republished as unique content.

Is it a good idea to move my hubs to my blog?I want to know if google will see this as duplicate content. Kindly focus your answers on the effect that transferring hubs to another site will have on the penalization by google for duplicate content. Hope to get some answers from SEO experts

Hi everyone,I know there have been a lot of concerns about our hub content being stolen. It has been difficult for all of us to keep an eye on our hubs - plagurising is rife! However, I wanted to share a freebie with everyone (I like free!) that will search the Internet for duplicate...

I found out this morning that this site had stolen at least 2 of my hubs. The more I looked, the more I noticed that it appears every single post on the site is a stolen hub, completely copied in most cases (including the authors' names and copyright notes, ironically). I see lots of names of...

I would appreciate if Staff would tell me whether GamerGirl and Whitney, both of whom have chosen to crawl through all my output (output which staff courteously restored after I had totally deleted it on my sabbatical) and repetitively downthumb and flag me, have been assigned by staff as my...

I would like to make a suggestion to the TEAM here on HUB Pages. I feel that it would be a positive improvement here on the HUB, if all of the activity that is perpetuated by Hubbers, were made known.For instance... apparently - anyone can go around giving thumbs UP or DOWN to a fellow...

I'm getting a message saying that my hub contains duplicate content. However, I have run the content through copyscape and plagspotter. Copyscape come up with 0%. Plagspotter comes up with 67% but the content that is duplicate is content which is added to my hub via the HP system. ie: "All...
