I've started removing articles from Yahoo Contributor Network and am going to spread them elsewhere. The articles have all been deleted.
However, either Yahoo is going to leave the article title there, or they're slow to remove the entire thing but I have a warning saying duplicate.
Of course, the crawlers haven't noticed the absense yet.
How do I proceed?
Just publish them regardless of the warning. If they have been removed then the system will eventually catch up to it. Publish them then ping them.
Was your content under a "Display-Only" ownership agreement with them? If not, it will never go away from YCN.

So I just had my first article copied. I knew it would probably happen eventually, but though I was prepared for the inevitability, it still makes me very mad. Besides filling a DCMA, which I did immediately once I was informed, how do you guys deal with having an article copied?

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in the poetry section.

If anyone has written anything on Yahoo Contributor, I would recommend checking out the details. Since non of my articles are "paid to hire" After July 31st I will be able to bring them to Hubpages. Just thought i'd let anyone know who may have work there.

In checking to make sure that all my hubs are saved in the Wayback Machine of the Internet Archive, I found many that were saved, and some that surprisingly were not there.My hubs on these niche sites were saved in the Wayback Machine: soapboxie, letterpile, turbofuture.But my hubs on these sites...
