I've received a warning on one of my articles that much of it is duplicated on another site. I then remembered that I had it posted 1.5 years ago on a site for writers, but not a blog kind. I hadn't visited that site all this time as it didn't interest me and I'd forgotten about it actually.
I think it would take awhile to contact the owner of the other site and get it taken down, so I'm going to delete the article here. But I'm confused about the rules now because I have posted some articles on Ezine that I had first posted here. I didn't realize it was a problem. Then I asked someone once and found out there's a glitch, so do this or that....but I didn't and there was not problem. In order to be following all the rules, should I be taking down my Ezine articles? They were word for word of these articles, but no duplicate warning was given.
And not that I'm making any decisions right tonight, but could someone tell me how to undo my enrollment here? Thank you for your help.
You can read the rules about duplicated content in the FAQ. There isn't a glitch about duplicated content, it's a straightforward policy.
Hello. Thanks for providing the link. I've read it and since I have some stuff on Ezine, according to this paragraph in the link, it's not my blog or website, so I'm concluding I should take it down even though I didn't get a notice saying 'duplicate.' It still might have been affecting my hubscore -- do you think?
I did delete the article last night here on hubpages that said 'Duplicate' but it appears on my 'account' that I've had four people read it today. Since I did delete it, it will disappear from Hubpages within 24 hours -- is that right?
If Relache is busy and anyone else knows, please reply. Thank you.
Pamela as far as I have learned in my short time here. If you own the content and it is duplicated on the web it will effect your hub's score. It does not determine the potential earnings or traffic of the hub.
It will be gone in 24 hours unless you undelete it. The four views are probably you looking at the hub.
If I owned the content I would not worry about duplicate, you still may earn well with it. But again I am not an expert.
Hi Pamela you dont have to leave HubPages just because of duplicates. I would suggest taking that same article and re-write it from a different perspective. No more worries of duplicates. but..if you insist..I think you just have to delete your account. Sorry you having mixed feelings with HP.
Thank you for responding. I'm not having mixed feelings about Hubpages -- but rather about me and whether I'll ever get all this stuff straight. Rules, guidelines and adsense, etc. I do enjoy this writing community, but I haven't learned to balance my other many responsibilities. They're coming up short. I'll be giving it all some thought.
It's a wonderful community this Hubpages and certainly very state-of-the-art.
You can leave your duplicated articles up. I have about 3 that I have posted on other sites.
I am also new to hubpages. (No hubs yet.) This is from the FAQ section on duplicate content:
"You are allowed to post content on HubPages that is also published elsewhere, like your own site or blog - but you cannot place any promotional links on that hub."
Am I correct then in thinking that you can post articles you've posted elsewhere as long as you don't provide any back links on that hub? I have a few articles and I can't decide whether to put them on Snipsly or hubpages. Ideally I would put them on both.... and Snipsly does allow you to post content you've posted elsewhere.
Duplication can have a negative effect on searches, because it does not add value to user experience and will not rank well in Google, who intend to supply unique and informative content to the end user. You will get your hubs high in search engine results if they are fresh and unique. If search engines have you listed as a duplicator you will struggle to rank well.
I had one and I edited a bit so that it wasn't duplicate..um because I wasn't sure if I was recieving a hubscore penalty because of it..because when I read the warning underneath it said I might recur one, so if you can alter it slightly might save this
