I had many non exclusive articles that I transferred from AC. I know that duplicate content will lower your scores. I just want to know some ways to promote my content (within the rules of HubPages) to get my ranking up. Thanks for any help!
You need to create some unique material. Hubpages wants to be a place that creates new material, not an indexing or storage site. There is a place for both but you need to write some original hubs
If it's duplicate content, no amount of promoting will improve your ranking. It's original content or nothing, I'm afraid.
If you've deleted them from AC, then the duplicate penalty will eventually disappear and your ranking will go up.
Thanks everyone for your replys!
I have duplicate content as well as original. Would it be best to unpublish all of the duplicates until I can re-write them, or just keep them published and re-write as I go. (I have been doing this and the flags on most hubs are disappearing.)
If you have a lot of duplicate content, your score is going to heavily penalized no matter what you do. HubPages does not want unoriginal material and they say so upfront.
You'll probably need to rewrite the articles. Not as much work as you think, I have done it before. If you know your articles well you should be able to rewrite them while keeping the overall structure and flow intact.
Good luck with that.
The only way is to write the unique content as far as possible. If you are able to do that your hub score will automatically high
While there are things you can do to improve your hub score, it is still a bit of a black art. Why my hubber score is currently 100 is a mystery to me (as I write this it will probably drop to around 95!).
Generally, although it is good to improve your scores the precise value of both hubscore and hubber score shouldn't be taken too seriously. Traffic and AdSense earnings are a more practical measures of 'success'!
nice ric, how are the coffee episodes coming along?
that 100 looks nice. it does seem to be traffic and views?
Are you talking about the Author score? it fluctuates. When I was quite active in uploading articles, my author score was rather high.
A few months of inactivity, and it drops to 44. A couple of days in making comments, and participating in the forum pushes it to he current score.

I was reading a Hub on Hubpages, and was concerned to read the advice that the content we use in our Hubs should be unique, not something we've posted elsewhere on the net.I started out on Helium and have nearly 200 articles on that site. When I joined HubPages, I saw it as a great opportunity to...

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...

I have read how hubscore is computed but was still surprised the other day when I saw a hubscore of 1. It just is somewhat amazing to me that some hubscores are 10 or below. Don't get me wrong----I'm really not trying to be judgemental or holier than thou or anything it's just I...

I notice several disgruntled Hubbers on Eric's new Hub, saying they're leaving HubPages because of the duplicate content flags.They seem to be misunderstanding what the dup content flag is all about - either they think they're being penalized, or that the flag means they have to delete the Hub.I...

I have been harassed by hubpages for quite awhile. Some of my Hubs have been controversial and I think they are trying to get me kicked out, but they are accusing me of duplicate copy, which is totally untrue. I write all my own articles. I do research but never ever do I copy and paste in my...

Okay who knows how I can move or copy my hubs to a personal website? Thanks!
