Can you post articles on hubpages that you posted on other websites?

    Wondering if you are allowed to publish the same articles here on hubpages, that you already posted on other websites such as ehow.com, etc...?

      You can, but don't bother.  They will never earn well.  HubPages expects unique content.

    The system will allow you to post it but it is disallowed. Your articles will be marked as duplicate and publishing a lot of them will automatically publish them all.

    So, you can publish them but you should not.

    You can do it but it will be considered duplicate content and it may not score well also googl frowns on duplicate content and it could have a negative effect on the article in both places with the Search Engine listings.

    Many people are now getting out of ehow (common knowledge) these days.  They are deleting those articles and now listing them mainly with hubpages or infobarrel.
    More and more people are now doing this.  If you delete it from there then you do not have a duplicate content problem.

    Hope this helps.

      Articles written on one website are copied elsewhere by those copycats(common knowledge). In that case I am sure the articles deleted from EHow and published here would be marked as duplicate.

      Also, it can take months before search engines will remove copies of deleted articles from their cache, and this too will lead to a duplicate content warning.
