I have started using HubPages to share some of my articles with a wider audience in a way I have more control over. Some of these articles will have been published elsewhere. I understand and agree with trying to block marketers from spamming the system with outbound links when the content registers as duplicate.
How does this apply to citing my sources? I assume these links will be considered a no-go on duplicate pages as well. Should I just use the source's web address and info without making it clickable?
What you should do is change up the article so that it is unique.
It depends on the source. Outbound links to commercial sites are prohibited, links to sites like Wikipedia are not. A non-clickable URL sounds like a possible solution.
Thank you, both. I thought all outbound links were prohibited. Over time, the content of my duplicate hubs will probably diverge from their previous incarnations as I expand upon and update them. There will probably always be large chunks of text that remain the same, though. I'm not interested in cheating the system, only in maintaining a "living" version of my work for readers to have access to.
You are welcome!
Here is the exact text: "including promotional links on content that is unoriginal (i.e. not exclusive to HubPages); promotional links can only be included on content that is exclusive to HubPages."

Hi,I've read an e-mail I received with the rules and the ONLY thing I could see was that I had 2 links, so I removed one and still got flagged. I think I followed the rest of the rules. Any suggestions? Here's my hub URL:<snipped>THANKS,

If a hubber keeps getting flagged for publishing duplicate content from other sources (not their own), will they eventually get banned? Or is it HubPages policy to just remove the flagged hubs? Just curious.

Earlier I posted that people should go and make links going to other sites that do not belong to you nofollow. Then someone mentioned that if your hubber score is less than 85 then "every link" will be nofollow. But this is not what HubPages says. HubPages says:"If your HubberScore...

All 80 odd of my hubs have been marked for revision! I have been a member for 2 years - it is just depressing and embarrassing! How can I go about revising ALL my hubs? I mean - if they had not been accepted in the first place I would have understood! I cant really go and update ALL of them. Even...
