Regarding Duplicate Content

    I want to avoid the "duplicate content" matter, so I need clarification...

    I read that I can post articles from my own blog or website to HubPages but will it affect my score or revenue?

    Is is best to post the original article to HubPages first and then to my blog or to another writing platform to avoid receiving a "duplicate content" notice?  Does it affect score or revenue?

      Just write original content for HP, and you won't have a problem.

    If you post contents found elsewhere on the internet here, it will most likely be flagged as duplicate content. This could affect the score of the hub, and if you have much of that it could affect your author score as well. Importantly, you are not allowed to have any outbound links from duplicate content.

    If you publish here first, then subsequently publish elsewhere, technically you should not be penalized by HubPages. However, you will be competing against yourself in the search engines, which may negatively affect your earnings.
