    I deleted my articles and account from eHow like many others...
    I would like to post them here.I read somewhere about deleting the urls on Google.
    Anyone have experience doing this on google and posting here without getting the dreaded"duplicate content" penalty?

      I wish someone would explain to me why the "duplicate content" message is so dreaded.

      It will affect the Hub's score, but if you know the original is gone, it will eventually right itself.

        it's dreaded because it lowers the score...assuming that that will lower chances of money making as well hmm

          Your Hubberscore and Hubscore have absolutely no impact on how much money a Hub can make.

    Once they get deindexed from google naturally, your penalty will naturally disappear smile

    You actually dont get penalised - it just leaves a message in your account which will eventually go once the old url naturally disolves in the Internet ether smile

    This is all really useful information.  I was going to ask the same question!

    I too dumped ehow.

    The really bad news is that those b*stards redirect the broken links to other parts of their website. It can take months for the Google spiders to figure that out; if ever.

    You can expect your traffic to be stolen for a long, long time.

    If anyone has a solution to this; please post!

    I've found google is getting better and faster at dropping pages that don't exist anymore. So I would say delete them and forget about them. Google will take care of them pretty quickly.

    Well, I just went and Google checked a couple of my articles that I had deleted over six months ago.

    Sure enough the ehow article link is still there and still being redirected. The hubPages article link is still nowhere to be found; probably because Google considers it duplicate content and therefore not worthy of listing.

    There are probably thousands of writers who have left ehow. There are no doubt tens-of-thousands of these broken-redirected links on ehow’s website.

    That means that ehow is giving tens-of-thousands of Google’s search customers the runaround. Each and every day.

    What ehow is doing is a deliberate and direct violation of Google’s AdSense policy.

    Hopefully, there will be a day when Google finds this out.

    Just my personal opinion.

    You can request Google to remove the urls from indexing. Go here -
    https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/removals?pli=1

    You will have to sign in to your Google account to do that.

    Best Regards

    so even if i were to change the title and not the article itself, I will get hit with a duplicate content  penalty?
    maybe I'll re-write them...roll
