    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 There have been several forum posts now by hubbers whose hubs have been unpublished because the content exists elsewhere on the internet.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.
