I am 75 and I've been blogging for some years.
I would like to be able to share some of my thoughts and provide links to some of the material I have been writing over the years.
My hubs are flagged as duplicate material (something copied from my own blog) and now one has been rejected completely.
Any advice would be appreciated.
If an article is commercial in nature, it MUST be original content even if it is content which you own and have you posted on your own website in the past. HB do allow duplicate content, but they will make you aware of the fact and it may be reflected in your hub score.
My advice would be to use HP to write new content and then simply use your website to link to this content.
I'd probably recommend the opposite. Use hubpages to link to the website - since a backlink from hubpages can increase a low rank site fairly fast in some cases.
Of course it's a wise idea to only backlink to your site from relevant hubs, not all of them, Pete.

I found out this morning that this site had stolen at least 2 of my hubs. The more I looked, the more I noticed that it appears every single post on the site is a stolen hub, completely copied in most cases (including the authors' names and copyright notes, ironically). I see lots of names of...

Why does Hubpages keep calling my hubs "Duplicates"?Why does Hubpages keep calling my hubs "Duplicates"? It is really frustrating to spend an hour or so typing a movie review and trying to make it perfect just to have it be deemed as a "Duplicate"???

I just logged in and it shows every single one of my hubs highlighted in pink, to need review. The majority of these were well trafficked and featured hubs or editor's choice. Did something happen? I tried looking in the questions and forums and didn't see anything. I am not a former Squidoo person...

When it was first introduced I was annoyed by it but made an effort to tweak my hubs to get them out of Idle status. Now, a whole load have got zzs against them again and many of them are hubs that at one point were very successful and even now still have scores above 70 or higher.One of the hubs...
