Can I take something I wrote for another site (like my blog) and publish it as a hub?
It's a good way to generate traffic.I would publish it here first. HubPages is great vs. blogs.What would you suggest?As long as you say who you are as the author or give credit to another author you should be ok.
I tried to do it once and they flagged my article, as they thought it was plagarized even though it was my own article on my own website. I would rewirte it a little and check it on copyscape.com and make sure it doesn't show up anywhere and then publish it.
I didn't see any rules against it. You are the author, you own the rights to what you published on your blog, so you should be ok publishing on hubpages.
Technically you can but it is discouraged and you will be penalized for duplicate content even if it is your own. Here is the rule:
Your Hub's content has been detected on another site and has incurred a HubScore penalty as a result. You are allowed to post content on HubPages that is also published elsewhere, like your own site or blog—but you cannot place any promotional links on that Hub. Only you can see the alert message at the top of your Hub. A pattern of publishing duplicate content will negatively affect your HubScore, as we prefer to reward authors who publish content unique to our HubPages. It does not matter whether or not you are the original author of this content.
You should just write a related Hub, and link to the already written stuff. I've never used duplicate content here, I think it will just have a negative effect.

I'm sure this has been asked before, but I can't find the answer. If I have written on HubPages am I allowed to publish that hub on another site? I may alter it a little to make it shorter, but it would basically be the same and I'm unsure if this is allowable. Comments, please.

So, I understand I can't publish any content on here that I have used for another site. But can I publish on here first, then carry those articles over to another site? Is that allowed? Cause on the other sites I write for allow me to republish content on them... Also, I read that the hubs are...

First reason:Any article is handicapped by moderators if it doesn't please them. Your article won't appear in search engines purely because it is not featured.Second reason:You cannot publish your articles elsewhere! Your articles are not even visible in search engines and yet HubPages use...

I check with 3 different duplicated content checkers one said 98% original the other one said 93% original then the last one said original content. Should I just resubmit my article?
