It is not strictly forbidden, but there are some negative consequences.
Is it considered spam to post your hub on Craigslist?
what category would you post your hub ad on?????
anyway, yes there are negative consequences to posting duplicate content. I think if it was on hubpages first then there should be no point reduction, but the other sites might have other actions like suspension or not getting your article indexed.
I'm not concerned with CL as much as I am with Hubpages...I post on rants and raves sometimes.
As long as you abide by the ToS you should be fine, I would avoid duplicating my articles personally, however all mine are commercial, so my techniques may not apply if this is a rant/rave
The reason I ask is because one of my hubs was removed by huppages and this is what they said:
- Promoted through spam or abuse of other sites
This may include, but is not limited to:
- Spamming of comments, forums, or profiles or by email or chat
- The creation of spam blogs or spam pages on other sites to promote this hub
- The use automation tools to do any of the above
But, I am confused because in the stats section they acknowledge Craigslist so I don't know why I can't post there.
When you post a "rant and rave" on craigslist it says "Please do not post phone numbers, email addresses, or URLs in personals" right at the top. When you post the same "rant and rave" that consists only of a photo and a link to a hub to a bunch of different craigslist cities I'd call that abuse.
Why then does hubpages have stats for Craigslist?
I am a little confused. Aren't we suppose to promote our hubs on other sites, like redgage and Xomba?
Redgage and Xomba are different then CL. CL has strict rules she broke and it lead to spam towards Hubpages, hurting it just a little bit.

After you post a hub on Hubpages.com, do you ever submit it to other sites?I was wondering if I can submit some of the pieces I have posted here to other sites. Is that allowable?

I have been harassed by hubpages for quite awhile. Some of my Hubs have been controversial and I think they are trying to get me kicked out, but they are accusing me of duplicate copy, which is totally untrue. I write all my own articles. I do research but never ever do I copy and paste in my...
