I know that my Hub has to be original, but is it okay to post it on my website as well? Or will my hub get deleted?
And if it will get deleted what's to stop competitors from posting it on a free Web 2.0 site to get your Hub deleted?
It will get flagged as duplicate content, not deleted just unpublished so some random person can't get your stuff deleted, but they can try to post it elsewhere. HP will notify you if your hub is a duplicate.
Sure, you can post it. But HP will hunt you down and…
Why not write a short blurb about the article and link it on your blog.
You can post a link from your website which is advantageous to you with an introduction paragraph (good for backlinking). If you copy and paste your hub, then it would flag up as copied content. Too much of this, HubPages will penalise your hub and authorscores. Google doesnt like copied content and although, dont penalise you, it wont help your position in the search results.
It is always best to write original content and have it in one place. You can get away with copying and pasting a small section of the hub, but to copy it out fully wont do yourself or the hub any good. Better that you create your own synopses yourself however.
If you want to help yourself. I can see one thing that you can do to improve traffic flow to your hubs... increase your authorscore by producing lots of good quality content here on Hubpages to above 74. Your hubs will then become dofollow!
p.s. Hubpages wont delete your hub, if it hasnt already been published elsewhere before you publish it here. Original content is the name of the game!
But you could certainly link to it, with a description of it.
That would be a good idea!
You can still have the duplicate content in the hub, but the hubscore will be less as a result of penalty. Also, a hub that has duplicate content cannot have outgoing links in it.
Wow...went away for a couple of minutes and came back to a bunch of replies.
Thanks for the replies

I was on another thread and someone said many people sign up on HubPages, but very few go on to write a substantial number of quality Hubs.I wonder why this is and what HubPages can do to encourage people to stay on and improve their Hubs, which seems to be what they want.All my Hubs were recently...

I've rewriiten a HubPages Story after receiving a duplicate post warning. I received another "duplicate post" message. It's not a duplicate post. The new version is almost all new. The only thing I didn't change was the summary and title. What can I do? Is there anyone at Hubpages who can...

So, I understand I can't publish any content on here that I have used for another site. But can I publish on here first, then carry those articles over to another site? Is that allowed? Cause on the other sites I write for allow me to republish content on them... Also, I read that the hubs are...

Have any of you who have re-posted your articles (originally written anywhere else) noticed any specific dip in traffic after recent Google change?I find something amusing. My traffic is never too great to talk about. But today, after a little dip for a couple of days, my total traffic to hubs is...
