    Is it permitted to put an article you've written on hubpages onto your own blog or website as well?

    Yes, you are allowed to do that. But since Google doesn't like plagiarism, I wouldn't do such a thing. It can affect rankings of whole blog.

    Like Ultimate Hubber says, you have the right, since you own the content, but you could get a duplicate content penalty.
    I would rewrite the article to make it unique, while still presenting the same ideas. You could also in your own blog, link to your hub, therefore providing your reader with more info and giving your hub a backlink

    it's not plagiarism to repost your own articles - but it does get your hub flagged for duplicate content and may affect your hubscores;  others have noted it could affect SEO & ranking but no substantive evidence is available.

    i have a substantial body of work on my website, some of which i've moved to hubpages - sometimes i remove it from the orighinal pagers, other times just let them exist as duplicates - in both cases i've found my traffic increases.

    Avoid it though you can always give another version of your article here.

    Legal yes, but practical no.  One is best to link to your material with a short description or a soundbyte that would create interest in reading the entire hub.

    Any content sharing site doesn't want duplicate content because they believe in google's phantom content penalty, if your going to repost a article, you should rewrite the whole thing so you can target a different set of keywords. You say the same thing, but in different words.
