    Years ago I posted a series of how to articles on the message boards of a fishing website. I want to put them in my own website which I am working on now. They would be a great draw to my website. They are something unique. I contacted the fishing website and they do not want to delete them as they say it would set a bad precedent. If I repost them on my own website, or on hubpages, is that a duplicate content violation? I posted this question on the adsense forums page and the answer is vague as the guy who answered doesn't have a good command of the english language.

    Duplicate content is duplicate content, whether you're the original author or not.  So it wouldn't be a good idea to repost them on HubPages, because you'd get a duplicate content penalty.

    You could, however, post them on your own website.  The question will be - if someone searches on Google for that topic, which one will Google pick?  The one on a respected fishing website, or the one on your brand new and unknown site? 

    So you may find you won't gain much benefit from using the content on your own site - but it won't hurt to try, and there's nothing illegal about it. 

    You can raise the profile of your website by including one or two contextual links to your website in each of your fishing Hubs.

    These posts are on threads that have not been accessed in a couple years. But if I do a google search of the title it is on page 3. This is a really good and very large fishing website. They sell advertising and have a waiting list to advertise on their site. No google adsense on their site.  My posts mean nothing but so far they don't see a need to delete them. 
    I can rewrite the words as I likely would anyway to get specific keywords. But I would still want to use my original pictures. Taking new pictures would be difficult as I would have to purchase another tool and modify it all over again. Does the original content search include pictures?

      That's why they're still on page 3.  Google respects age! 

      No problem,you can use the original pictures.

    Well, that makes is easier. Now I just need to rewrite the postings. I wish they would just delete my original posts and leave it at that. They might still. They are not bad people, just protecting their own interests.
