I just joined hubpages yesterday. I really like it.
The question I have is about articles. I have posted some of my articles on my website and also with a few article directories.
Can I use the same articles for new hubpages, or should the hubpage article be different than articles I post elsewhere?
Thanks for any help or suggestions you can provide.
Technically you can, but it is frowned upon and you could get penalized for duplicate content. You can do a little rewriting if you like. I occasionally will post a rewritten blog post as a hub, but you just need to be careful.
Would think that if one writes a pretty good article for the benifit
of the audience, where one would like for it to be seen by the
greatest number of people, since it may change their lives, that
one would want to post it in the greatest number of places. But low - everybody advises against it, as it seems to be against search engine law. You get penalizied for trying to reach the greatest number of people without disguising what you write.
Has to do with search engine algorithms, originality, and
possibly content theives. I have had my work stolen and what do I care, it is another portal for people to see it. However when
money is concerned, it must be a single entity which channels
money to oneself, and should not channel money to someone
else. Such is the conundrum.
Copied articles will not result anything else than a "duplicate content" hub , and none of us here want that , because search engines don`t like this type of content either. I experienced an duplicate content hub just because of it`s title and similar frases that are used on all articles to describe Paypal. Will not delete it it`s my work , but that one keeps my overall score down . I suppose. :
Lots of fun on hubpages D
There is a site called dupecop.com, which will allow you to check a rewritten article to make sure it is sufficiently different to qualify as non-duplicate.
You paste your origninal in on one side, and your rewrite in on the other side, hit "compare", and it gives you a percentage.
Some of my best-scoring Hubs are material I have elsewhere, just rewritten a bit.
Hmmm.... dupecop.com let me bookmark this one might be helpful , thanks a lot
Thanks for the helpful info!
If you want to find out certain things, it is best to ask the people who have "been there - done that" and are willing to share their wisdom and experience.
I am impressed with hub pages and hubbers like you are a big part of what makes it great.
Well, I guess I have some re-writing to do.
I would change an article every time I submitted it somewhere, or made a hub page. Better to be safe than sorry.

Hello, here's something I've been wondering about for a while.I have a few articles on another site, which has recently announced that it's no longer going to pay international contributors. So I'm thinking it would be a good idea to move a couple of them over to HubPages (where we're...

Yes, I understand, the algorithm could settle. I'm not holding my breath though. What can Hubpages do to appease Google?I can see nothing less than:- Taking out the bottom 40% of articles in terms of quality.- Pre-approving each and every article like InfoBarrel. - Removing ALL duplicate content. -...
