Hi, I recently signed up to Constant Content as this seems to offer scope for slightly higher one-off payments and some passive income as well.
I just wondered whether
a) has anyone else used it, did/do you make much money; and
b) did you duplicate articles across from Hubpages?
I've written a hub about Constant Conent if you haven't come across it before.
Have you read the terms regarding duplicate content? It isn't forbidden, but it is discouraged and penalized.
Edit: Constant Content allows duplicate content (although you have to use the same author name for both versions of the article), but HubPages does penalize duplicate content
I wouldn't post Hubs elsewhere anyway, I wouldn't want to risk the other version of my article outranking my Hub.
I am a member at CC but found the submission process so annoying, I've never actually published anything there!
Even if you published here first, it does not sound optimal if you ask me, cf. CC's license:
"I understand that in submitting my articles/work to constant content I will retain the copyrights to all my work, but I will allow purchasers a license to use my work on designated websites only. Work may be purchased by additional users, unless my work falls under the Unique Purchase Package. I understand that work purchased with a Unique or Full Rights purchased can not be published or sold else where. If any article purchased with a "Unique" or "Full Rights" license is found published else after a sale, you will be responsible for giving Constant Content a full refund for the article purchased."
The way I read Rochelle, she was referring to HubPages' rules concerning duplicate content. But there should be no problem with penalties in case the content was published on HubPages first.
I did a variant of this for a long time with plenty of success.
Constant-Content: Maximizing Content Revenue
Since you can sell different licenses for your content, you can post non-unique content that you own to CC -
HP Dupe Filters wont go off - CC does not post articles, only snippets. If you get a sale or request you can make a decision about whether the Hub should be pulled, changed, rewrote etc. based on the license sold.
Obviously the buyer will be reposting to the net and at that point dupe filters could trigger.
If your hub is not showing a potential to beat the 20-40 usd price range that is not uncommon at CC, then why not sell it!
I've sold several articles on CC, including some for $200 each.
Im sure that was for 'unique" rights.
But well done! Thats still quite a return for articles at any site!
So as not to confuse any future readers - the average "20-40" sale price would be for usage only or rights to non-unique content. In response to point b from the OP.

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...

Another HubPages writer has just asked me for permission to post some of my hubs on his website, while crediting me. He's already posted one hub without my knowledge, and has added a photo that I didn't use in my hub. I...

Okay so maybe this is more of rant, seeing that I am still upset but I seriously wish I could add to each of my hubs something like "no part of this content may be reproduced without prior permission from the...
