Hi Everyone. I am new to HubPages so am open to any and all suggestions. But I also have a question. Are the hubs you post totally unique to HugPages or are you posting your original work that you have also posted elsewhere on the web? Thanks in advance for your responses.
Hi Welcome! My hubs are totally unique to hubpages and I prefer to not post them anywhere on the web. I do however try to drive traffic to them through other websites by posting a blurb about the subject and then provide the hubpages link.
Hope that helps :-)
You'll get flagged if you post articles you've already posted elsewhere. Hubs need to be original.
Hey Julie! Welcome to the Hubs the secret to success here is bake lots of cookies and share them!
All work according to TOS of HubPages has to be original content. If it is duplicated from some other place, HubPages won't allow you to publish.
Welcome to HubPages and I hope you enjoy your time while you're here.
That's not "exactly" true. I have three or four out of a total of 106, that are duplicate content because they appear in other places on the web. They are my original writing (not copied from someone else). They can be published, but they will not be highly ranked by HP or Google.
Hi Julie; welcome to HubPages. Mine are original to HP; not too sure about others, though.
Hi and welcome Julie!
You'll find me mostly here on HP though I have many backlinking sites.
Read the TOS and FAQ's-- HubPages is looking for original work-- and it benefits you to post new material.
Mine are unique to hub pages as well. I was under the impression that content had to be unique to hub pages. It could not be anywhere else or it would be considered duplicate content and your hub would be flagged.
Does anyone else remember reading this?
It is however, o.k. to have links to drive traffic to your hub.
Welcome, the way I understand it, only original work is allowed here, duplicate content gets flagged I believe
Hubpages has software to detect duplicate content and they'll let you know.
The advantage to Hubpages is that you own your work, so if you decide to publish you stuff somewhere else, you can just delete it from Hubpages.
Sorry to intrude. I am also new to HupPages.
Is writing on the same topic, but not total "copy & paste" from another site consider "duplicate content"?
Welcome to Hub Pages. What Rochelle says is quite true. I find it easier to just write new articles. They can be on the same topic even, but rewriting is just too much work
Welcome to HubPages. I am pretty new myself and I am glad to see everyone is saying original and unique!

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...

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...

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. -...

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...
