I have been writing articles for several years. They are submitted to about 200+ article directories. If I use one of these articles for a Hub is it considered duplicate content?
The articlesw are cre34ated by myself.
Yes. If the words are the same, it is duplicate content. There is absolutely no point in posting duplicate content on HubPages, even if it's your own. This is because it will not rank good with Google and therefore won't earn you a penny!
I've seen a few threads like this.
Maybe this will clear it up:
Then why do people write articles and submit them?
Article directories are supposed to be places where you can get content for your site, your newsletter, or whatever.
In order for a site to then completely be SEO compliant I would then have to write an article for each and every hub.
Yep, you would have to do what 1000s of others are doing
so forth and so forth
Come on if you have been submitting articles for years this really shouldnt come as a surprise
No.You can publish hubs with duplicate content here, but if you do, they won't be ranked very highly.
They will be marked as "duplicate content", but still allowed to remain on Hubpages.
However, if you put even one self serving link on a duplicate hub, the hub is then regarded as "overpromotional", and will be unpublished when discovered.
Submitting too many overpromotional hubs can result in your account being cancelled.
Hope this makes it clear. Cheers, Eric G.
People write articles typically to create backlinks to their websites or promote affiliate products that they earn a commission on. People don't just post articles to give random stranger's websites free content, they have motives to earn money or promote their site!
Thousands of people re-write their own content to reap the benefits of unique content spread across several sites. If you post duplicate content, it's a complete waste of your time, in my opinion.
I write an article here and then re-write it or put a different twist on it and post it at another article site with a backlink to my article here. This helps my page rank which in turn increases organic search traffic thus increasing my adsense earnings.
Interesting, but I'm guessing you have a trick up your sleeve!
Different languages, perhaps? I think that would be an exception to the 'rule'.
Other than that, why would Google rank several pages with duplicate content in their top results?
Are we talking about link building with articles, or ranking several pages for the same keyword? It makes a whole lot of difference
Ahhhh ok. I was assuming you meant posting duplicate articles to earn via adsense (this is what I assumed the OP was talking about). I could see how it could assist in other areas.
I prefer unique content for linkbuilding and keyword ranking activities. It honestly doesn't take me that long to re-write my own articles. I actually sort of enjoy it because it gives me another go at writing about the same thing...I can perfect it! I simply use the same keywords and re-write everything else to improve my results.

You might want o read the hub and comments. It's not exactly about manual rewrite, yet it does not make any difference in this thread context. I was not buying into that, but then I checked my results of article submissions for several years, and now i don't waste my time on rewrites where possible
Yes, that's what HubPages is about. Writing an original article for each and every hub.
I must be stupid because I don't do any of that. Everything I write on here is original and not anything I've written or had published before anywhere else. I don't really care about the money as I do the exposure and as a writer, exposure is important to me to grow, learn and evolve. The more fans you have, I think, when you publish something, the better you will be in the long run; if this is wrong, correct me.
I've seen several site builders that take a keyword and then show all the long tail keywords and then use the long tail keywords to pull an article from an article directory.
The articles I write will each become a post on my blog. I had always assumed that since I was the author of all these articles that my blog would be deemed unique content.
Some of my articles have been published on sites like Careerbuilder.
I hyave tried some of the article rewriting software but all they produce is unique junk. Same with the majority of ghostwriters.
Misha, just thinking a bit about your point. Isn't link building more effective with pages that rank well in google? So links off of duplicate content shouldn't be as effective.
I guess - reading between the lines - your personal experience tells you differently. Who am I to argue with that. Interesting.
I've always found that personal experience is the best teacher on the internet. Put up a bunch of websites and pages, experiment and learn. Have to admit that sometimes I am very surprised. Have never been brave enough to try duplicate content.
Nelle, I was very skeptical at first too. Yet it seems to work for me at least as good as rewrite. And I am talking hundreds of identical articles

Hello,I just wanted to know whether hubpages allows the authors to publish their own hubs in other article directories under their own name. I just wanted to promote my hubs by submitting them in other article directories. Those articles will be found under my author name "Jubair Ahmed"....

Hubbers,My latest Dexter review is being blocked, essentially, by HubPages. They are saying it requires revision for all sorts of reasons. I will post the exact warning below. But, it is a 100% original, handwritten article! WTF?! It is a review. Obviously things like the title of the episode are...
