    If I unpublish an article here, can I republish it on another site?

      Hello, Jo,
      I've done this at least twice with my articles. I usually give Google about a month to clear everything while checking for copies and preparing to publish the work.

    Should not be any issues. Keep in mind though if you have an article that was ranking on Google it may take some time to be indexed.

      Thanks. Google ranking is not a problem.

    Yes, you can. I've done it before smile Though it might take a while for it to not come up as plagiarism. Give it a few weeks between unpublishing it on HP and republishing it on the new website.

      Thanks.  Just what I was wondering about.

    Be sure to check for copies before unpublishing. If you do not, and just republish the same thing and it is copied, your article will be considered a copy.
    You are unlikely to get any search traffic if that happens.

    Transferring an article is a pain in the neck. I've done it several times.

    First, have all stolen copies removed. This not only includes text, but also checking YouTube. Make sure all stolen copies have been removed from Google index before next step.

    Second, unpublish your article and instruct Google to also remove that URL from their index.

    Give things a few days for the Google "back office" algo to update as well.

    If you want to bother, there are the other search engines and your social media accounts.

    While waiting for all the above to happen, you have been busy copying, reformatting, and updating the article from the HP location to the new location in draft mode.

    Do a last "string search" check. If all clear, then publish at new location.
