After submitting my original articles and content to my Hubpages. Can.

    Can I take that content I wrote, and use it as I like and wish to? However I want? Can I place it on other websites like XOMBA.COM?
    Can I submit it to dozens or hundreds of articles submission websites and not be worried about anyone from HUBPAGES getting mad at me?  Or thinking that I copied the work from a certain place online that I submitted the content right after?

    I know about the link policies as said here:

    "You are allowed to post content on HubPages that is also published elsewhere, like your own site or blogâ��but you may not place any promotional links on that Hub.  That being said, a pattern of publishing duplicate content will negatively affect your HubScore, as we prefer to reward authors who publish content unique to HubPages. Please note that it does not matter whether or not you are the original author of this content."

    What type of promotional links are these?  I cant place them where in my hubs , or in the articles where I submit them to?

    So if I wrote a hub about Dog Caring, and I have 3 Blogs about Dog Caring, that means that I cant place any links about the blogs on my hubs, and I cannot place any links on the articles that link back to my hubs and publish them elsewhere?

    I have been reading the forums,  but people keep contradicting them selves in some little details. I just want to make sure I get things  right, before I go on to my website and link a hub to it , or the other way around.

    We cannot place any type of links on our hubs? But If I place the content on my website, after publishing it over here, can I link to my hub account?  Anywhere as much as I want?

    Can I lets say for instance once again, write about Dog Care, and place that content anywhere I want, but only link back to my Hub about Dog Care?

    I have been searching honestly, if you can help, It would be awesome to be as detailed as possible.

    Because I read the FAQs, but they are not too specific.

    Thanks in advance for all answers.

      You "can" copy the content published here on HubPages, but it will be of little use to do so.

      HubPages does not want duplicate content - period.

      To get the most out of writing at HubPages, only post unique, quality content that you have written yourself and that is not published anywhere else.

      That's the short answer!

      So, again, you CAN re-publish, but if you wish to do so, you would be better off at some site other than HubPages - here, only original, unique content thrives...

        Of course I know that I can only post unique, quality content that I have written my self and that is not published anywhere else. That is not the short answer to the question I asked.

        Well  I can republish as you say, I am sure.  I just wanted to understand better how the linking would  work, as I read everywhere and continue to read, but did not understand  and I know if it's republished it would have to be totally on a different website other then hubPages,  I know that only original content thrives here. Don't get me wrong by saying this,   its just I don't feel  your answered helped me much.

        I know, it seems like I am complicating everything.  Well  I will  try to find some other information to help me.

        Thanks again friend.

    The content you post on hubpages is your content. So you are free to do what you think is best with it. Hubpages does reward unique content internally. So there is benefit to posting original content here.

      Paul,

      Can you help me understand a little more about the linking.

      If I  published a HUB,  after it's published, can I place that information from my HUB, in any article submission website that I want to?  Can i place on other article submission websites that share revenue of adsense  just like hub pages? As long as I don't dont place any links linking back to eachother  or anything at all..  ??

      Or could the links  at least link back to my original hubs, where it was originally published?

      Thanks in advance

    If your content here is unique, you may place links in your hub out to somewhere else - ie your blog, but no more than 2 links to the same domain.

    If you then take the content of your hub and republish elsewhere, ie on your blog, you will have to take the links off your hub.

    Wouldn't it be easier to just write a new piece for your blog and keep you HP article unique?

    Nobody really gains when you post the same article on many websites. The content is the same so when people type in keywords, which article should be ranked the highest? It is better to have unique content and drive all the content to one of the sites that you have published it on. You can always write similar articles and provide links to other articles. Backlinks are always a good idea.

      I hope you don't take offense, simeon, but I firmly disagree with you. Syndication existed before google, and will no doubt exist after google. 

      It has nothing to do with google or SERP’s. If you write really good articles, they can be taken up by hundreds or even thousands of ezines, newsletters and websites in your niche.

      This can put your link in front of tens of thousands of targeted people who would never have thought to search for your keyword term.

      Syndication has existed since before the internet, in fact, most magazines and local TV stations contain syndicated content.

    I would avoid posting the same article to a huge number of places, maybe a few is okay, but propogating unique content across the internet is much more effective in my experience.
