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. When I uploaded one of my articles over here, it came up as a duplicate and got my score decreased. How can I avoid that? I don't want them to think that I am just spamming the site and eventually ending up being kicked out.
Thanks in advance.
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.
You are perfectly within your 'rights' to publish here, but not without penalty, which does affect overall score.
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.
I was mentored by Marissa, I believe, on this point - who is a good forum expert here.
Thanks tresero. I might go for the penalty because I don't want to re-write any of it.
Please be advised right here and right now... From only my personal experience, unless you submit to HP for a status to clear your content - it will most likely incur more than one penalty.
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 published an article on suicide. I thought the ads were off until it gained more traffic. But I just checked it out and it appears that the subject matter falls outside of the TOS?!!?? I had no idea. Staff and veterans, please clarify.

That is another copying site which has been stealing our hubs from Hubbers at Hubpages. My hub How to Cure Vitiligo Naturally was copied and pasted onto this website: <link snipped> under the name "Zimmer". This bad guy changed the pictures but didn't event bother to...

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 recently joined Xomba and used it successfully the first evening to add some of my hub links. The next day my account was blocked and when contacting the site for help, I was told that my account was blocked because I had copied it from 'here' and here was a link that I clicked on and took...
