What is the HubPages policy on reprinting Hubs in other venues (with attribution of course)?
I don't think they allow it, even if you wrote it yourself. Seems kind of unfair, but that appears to be their rules. I write for a financial website, and they will not let me turn my articles from that site into Hubs.
Their loss, since I would be publishing a lot more Hubs for Hubpages and they'd be generating a lot more ad revenues and visitors.
They say they don't like it and I believe if they catch you, they might ask you to take it down...I'm not positive on this, but I believe they want your hubs to be unique to hubpages.com and not re-printed somewhere else.
it is against the rules to use your own content from elsewhere here on HP. I know it seems unfair, but Google frown on duplicate content so HP is trying to stay in Google's good graces both for HP and us the writers sake.
You have to understand that so long as the content is in two places at once one will be labeled a carbon copy.
No, no, no. Duplicate content is not allowed. There have been several forum posts now by hubbers whose hubs have been unpublished because the content exists elsewhere on the internet. Don't do it. You don't want to anyway - it messes with your Google rankings.
If you want to publish your hub content anywhere else, you must first remove it from HubPages. You do own your own content but HubPages has exclusive rights to show it until you remove it. Once removed you may do anything you like with it.
I get that online sources are (and ought to be) off limits....what about print???

I've seen some hubs with affiliate links on them... such as from Commission Junction. Is there a HubPages policy on using these types of links?

As fast as I'm trying to fix up hubs that are unfeatured, the problem isn't that there is something wrong with them, but that they are being unfeatured as a result of lack of traffic. Isn't this short sighted? Some topics just don't get that much traffic. It's not because they are badly written,Is...

Hi all,I've been here a year now and had 60 hubs featured in a row since I started. Just now I received notifications that the last two hubs I submitted were not being featured. The first of the hubs I was given the boilerplate that it may be because it contained spammy elements. The hub was about...
