I have recently joined Hub and it looks like a fun, well done site. My only problem is that most of my articles are posted somewhere else.

I don't want them to think that I am just spamming the site and eventually ending up being kicked out.

Although I am only amongst the dummies here in the forums. I am approaching 'expert' status on your one question.
You may post your own original content... but IF it is also in another location on the world-wide Internet -- IT WILL be flagged, when found by HP spiders and penalized.

HP policy... please go the the F.A.Q. page - is CLEAR, that they love 'original, unique and quality content'.
But, publish away... at your own peril! lol
I hope I answered this sufficiently, as I am not an Expert, but expert in my personal experience here on HP, with this issue.

My experience has been, that a Hub that violates policy rules, can and most likely will - be flagged numerously - until it achieves a 'cleared' status by HP.
Be advised -- unless an Expert, who knows different than my personal experience can show different than this...

I've been updating and removing hubs. I haven't settled on a plan for good hubs that don't get traffic. Curious what others do. My top 40 hubs are 85% of traffic. I culled the heard and have been focused on my...
