Are you allowed to copy and paste one of your own articles you have from another site to a hub?
No. It may be your article which you own the copyright for, but Hubpages will flag it as 'duplicate content' and unpublish it.
No. Even if it's your own work but posted on another site, it counts as duplicate content and you'll be asked to edit the hub sooner or later.
Being asked to edit is OK. Being told there's duplicate content when I've removed/transferred it from the other site is what baffles me. Weird! I can't find my content via a search engine. But it sure gets found when I try to move it elsewhere!!
Nope, all content on hubpages must be original work, even if it is yours. You will probably get a 'duplicate content' message if you try, and your hub will be unpublished.
So, instead, try writing a new hub on the same topic, or just go for another angle or topic.
yes you can, but those answering 'no' are technically correct.
what you cannot have is duplicate content co-existing on the web. so, you can copy your existing material to your computer, then remove it from online, wait a day or 2 for google to catch up, then create a new hub with your old content.
I transferred most of my amazon book reviews this way, with no problem.
for articles that i had on my own website, i created new hubs, then posted a link on the older webpage that pointed to my hub. [hubpages gets better placement in google searches than amazon book reviews or most individuals' websites.]
here's an example:
http://cascoly.hubpages.com/hub/Gettysb … ch-version
on my personal website, this didnt show up for several pages in a google search for "gettysburg new gingrich" and my amazon review didnt show up at all. now, the same text on hubpages makes the first page of the google search
No duplicate content allowed and they are adamant about it. They want this site to be unique and I have to agree.

Are we allowed to republish our articles elsewhere and keep the original hubs here in the mean time?
