I have a number of articles that were written for a project that I am no longer supporting. I will be removing the articles from their current locations but it might take months for those articles to be dropped from the index. If I were to post these articles on HubPages during this transitionary period other than a drop in hubscore and warnings of duplicate content is there any other consequences I should be worried about.
I enjoy posting on HubPages and reading the hubs of others, the last thing I want to happen is find myself banned.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
I'm not staff but I can tell you even if you left them up you wouldn't get banned. You would receive a duplicate content penatly (lower score).
And if you are pulling them down first on some other area, you won't even get that.
If you can bear through a bit of lowered scores on those Hubs and have them reviewed (by request) for a dupe search and it's shown they are only here, the scores will rise accordingly as the penalty is dropped.
Staff is welcome to correct me if I am wrong.
Not staff either, but I do know that you can post duplicate content, you'll just face the things you're already aware of and while it is duplicate you won't be able to have any outbound links as they'll get flagged for being over-promotional.
Thanks darkside and Iðunn.
A question for darkside, when you say outbound links would links to other hubs be incuded in this or just links to external resources?
Just to external sources. Hubs would be considered internal linking. Internal linking to unrelated hubs would do you no good either.
you are most welcome. I leave darkside to answer technical questions. I don't do technical even for me here, lol
Just external sources. Internal (hubpages.com) is fine.
Thanks livewithrichard, that answers my question. Any links will be to related hubs so I guess everything will be ok. Just as a precaution I have decided to rewrite parts of each hub so I will not be posting exact copies.
If the content has been removed from the other site(s), and Google is simply showing the entries in search results, I can clear the duplicate penalty for you after I've done a manual check. Just send me an email with links to the hubs in questions and I'll look into it.

Hello,I try not to make waves with "How Hubpages Operates" and I am not sure if this singular problem is having a huge effect or not.But, I've noticed that many hubs I had connected to other hubs via "embedded" links(anchored text) have not been coming up or being flagged as...

Hi,I've read an e-mail I received with the rules and the ONLY thing I could see was that I had 2 links, so I removed one and still got flagged. I think I followed the rest of the rules. Any suggestions? Here's my hub URL:<snipped>THANKS,

Yesterday I invited a friend to try the hubpages. She declined stating that most of the staff are narcissistic head hunters who have a degree in English, play head games with the users they don't like, are unfair in carrying out their hub rules and often help the evil doers on the site if it means...

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 would appreciate if Staff would tell me whether GamerGirl and Whitney, both of whom have chosen to crawl through all my output (output which staff courteously restored after I had totally deleted it on my sabbatical) and repetitively downthumb and flag me, have been assigned by staff as my...
