I have some decent articles published elsewhere and would like to move them here. From my understanding it would take about two weeks or so for Google to delist them, in order to consider moving them. A greater problem though, would be that I noticed today that some articles have been scraped, and some to sites where it's impossible to tell who to complain to--some to Russia, where I've read they don't respond to DMCA complaints.
Long story short though, anyone tried to move articles in this way? If some cheesy, bottom feeders have stolen them, I suppose they won't be accepted here. Hmph... suggestions welcomed.
Oh, one more thing--if I use submitting to HP as a method not to have to investigate each post for potential plagiarism, will I get penalized? I mean, if I try to post them to my account, does that make me a bad person? Lol... :::winks::: ... or does HP pull my account for something like that? The intent is good, I know that if HP finds them to be duplicate content they simply don't get posted. Just wondering how to move some articles here, that would be better off here.
I'm curious, where else are they posted currently, and why do you think they would do better here (by here I mean the niche sites, of course, as I hope you've gathered it's pointless if they're going to be stuck on HubPages or Discover).
By the way, I never complain to the webmaster when I find a stolen article. Go straight to the website host (whom you can find by using a Whois service) and make sure you use the host's official form. No use for Russian or Chinese sites unfortunately, but very effective otherwise.
I must admit, I am kind of missing something. However, lest I miss anything I'll answer your query first.
I have the articles in question on my blog right now. I make more money here than on my blog. Not by a lot, but by some. The big thing though, is that right now I have to maintain stuff here, and on my blog. I have tried to get people to write with me on my blog, but there aren't enough with the knowledge it takes to do so. Ergo I want to close 'er up and move whatever I want here, here. Then I'd have one less project to maintain.
What I am missing is, why I need to move my stuff to niche sites. Because, though I am not aware of what the average person makes per hub per day or anything like that, for the amount of posts I have live, my revenues seems fine and dandy. Why do I need to worry about moving stuff to niche sites?
I get that Discover and HP content is kinda the dregs, lol... but at the same time, I feel that perhaps some of my content--the stuff that rings my bell to write, has put me between a rock and a hard place. Maybe I am wrong, but maybe HP or Maven or whatever or whomever, thinks that niche sites shouldn't be contaminated with Left Hand Path magick. I feel but have no way to know for sure, that I am being rewarded for being quiet about not having stuff moved to niche sites.
I feel bad to say that because fine, whatever, you cannot change everything immediately and the revenue is fine as is... but, erm, what more can I say...? I mean, I think I've been clear in how I feel. To be honest though, I have not yet had a chance to see if they move ANYONE'S Left Hand Path content, to niche sites.
I feel like a comedian writing this... ready to bust a gut... no hard feelings at all, right or wrong.
Can I initiate a discussion about revenue? Is that allowed? Because now I am truly wondering if I am making an average buck, given that a lot of my stuff is still on Discover.
As far as I know HubPages doesn't make any judgement on the topic of an article. They're only concerned with readability and non-duplication.
You ask about revenue potential. To earn well you need to get all your articles moved to a niche site. You can submit one every 14 days and if it doesn't make the grade you'll get an email with some hints on what needs to improve. Many of your articles would probably suit the Exemplore site, but staff will move it to the one they think fits best.
I write tons of witchcraft and tarot stuff. Not LHP specifically, but all kinds. Every single one is on Exemplore. I've never had to submit one - they get moved within a week to 10 days.
If you write well (and you do) and you format the article properly, they'll be moved.

Hi,Do more experienced Hubbers have any useful tips for getting your article moved to a niche site? I kept seeing advice that goes something like "make sure you write a high-quality article" but it just seems so vague to me. I have 9 articles now and the only one that was moved to a niche...

Since the day I posted my first article upon returning to write here, my income steadily and significantly rose with each piece posted, and right before Black Friday, was over six times what I was earning while letting old posts gather dust. Even what I was earning after posting a significant...

Hi,There's one hub of mine that was averaging around 200 views a day and getting plenty of Amazon sales around a year and a half ago, then throughout the first quarters of last year it was stable at around 50 views and fast forward to the present day... for it to cross 15 a day is hoping for too...

Hi, I have question that as now my almost all hubs are moved to discover hubpages so, am looking to submit them to the respective network sites. But I have found discover hubpages have different categories. Like hubpages have "paired life" for articles related to relationships but...

I understand there's no reason to submit new articles to niche sites because staff get to those first, but I'm debating whether to go through my old articles to submit them. Is this something anyone here does with success?

I have been pleased with the audience and revenue for my articles on HubPages since joining the site some years ago.I commend the company for creating the successful niche sites at a time when similar sites were folding. My existing articles that moved to those sites have done even better than...
