would like to verify a policy

    I have an article that I wrote for a small town monthly, not online publication that I think would do well here but I am uncertain if this violates Hub policy.

      As long as you retain the copyright, go right ahead!  Even if it does appear somewhere on the web, it's not a violation of our rules unless you have promotional links on the hub.

        Maddie - Sorry to be chiming in but, now I am a little confused.  I was under the impression that your work had to be written specifically for hub pages and could not be published anywhere else online or it would be flagged for duplicate content.

        Example:  I have a website, that I have written many articles for.  My understanding was that I could not bring them into hub pages for the reason that I just stated above.

        Am, I misunderstanding the rule? 

        Your feedback is very much appreciated!

          Hi Sage.

          As long as there are no outbound self-promotional links on the hub (such as back to your blog, or to your affiliate offers), it is not a rules violation, but the hub will incur a score penalty.  It also probably won't be indexed very high by Google.  It's in your interest (and ours as well) to post unique content, but we won't actually remove duplicates unless they are promotional (or unless the rights don't belong to you).

            Muchas Gracias
