Would posting an article to authorsden.com hurt my hub score and google rank?
I considered using other websites to promote my writing. One such website is authorsden. I thought about posting an article or two there to see if it would help my internet exposure. But as I was doing it, I realized that I was simply duplicating my content. Does Google and Hubpages hurt users for doing that? are there any exceptions?
No, you are not allowed to post duplicate content. You will be penalized by Google and be asked to take it down if Hubpages catches it. It is against the rules of the site. What you can do, which is a great idea, is to post a related post with a link to Hubpages. Don't make it the same, but either mention the hub, or do a similar-themed article with a link to Hubpages.
It is against HubPages policy to duplicate content. Google will also penalize you for duplicating content. Your best bet is to write something related and then link back to articles that are here on HubPages. You could also write summaries of your article on a micro-blogging site like Tumblr and then post links back to here.
Google also tries to detect if you are linking to yourself. There are a lot of people that just build a bunch of fake pages and fake accounts everywhere for the purpose of creating backlinks. Google is always trying to reward people who get organic links and penalize people who are just linking to themselves.
I am not saying that you shouldn't link back to your articles. You should try to get as many quality backlinks as possible. You can pursue a short term strategy of trying to creates some backlinks and a long term strategy of trying to get organic backlinks.
Your best bet for getting organic backlinks is to network with other bloggers that are in your niche. Be a part of that community and it is highly likely that a blogger in your niche will find one of your articles interesting and they might link their readers to it or use one of your articles as a reference.
I heard the news the other day that Google is taking up another step closer on taking down all the duplicated contents on the internet.
I agreed with Gamerelated that writing summaries of your hubs and posting them with links to your hubs on the other websites is better.
Thanks guys! I could feel that something seemed wrong when I was doing it. I appreciate the confirmation and input.

Hello Hubbers! I'm fairly new to HubPages, I've been here about a week now and love the community so far! Anyway, I was thinking, since we all have the same goal; to make money, get readers and help people, I thought I would make a topic for us all to discuss the best places to post our HubPages...

I can't seem to find an answer for this in the learning center. I have a large set of articles I've been writing for a while + some time on my hands to dedicate to Hubpages for the next couple of months. Would publishing 10 hubs a day benefit or disadvantage me, both in terms of hub score /...

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

Article for discussion. I know that this recent development has already been mentioned by some hubbers in forums. But I am now wondering if this might be the main reason why we are seeing the current traffic plunges for many hubbers? See link...
