I am starting to get some decent traffic here, so I am moving some of my articles from another site over to HP. The problem I am having is that my other articles are indexed by the search engines, and even though I have deleted the content from the other site, it is still showing as "duplicate content" here.
Has anyone else had this issue? If so, will it hurt to go ahead and publish or should I wait until the article is de-indexed by the search engines? Any ideas on how long it takes a page to get de-indexed?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
How long have they been up for and have you already deleted them?
You could have written new content about the same subject and published it here, and linked to it from your old articles. They don't have to be published here for you to benefit from them, you could be benefiting from the SEO benefit of a link as well as traffic.
They have been up for a couple of years. I tweaked them with some different keywords and now I want to post them here because the exposure is better I think. I have already deleted them from the other site, I was just wanting to know how long before a deleted site is usually de-indexed.
Which site were they on?
If they were there for a couple of years they probably had built organic backlinks and aged well in Google - bringing them over here will mean they have to start the whole process over again.
It really depends on the site - hubpages is crawled very regularly by Google (most of my hubs are indexed in 1-6 hours) while some lesser known sites only get crawled every 1-2 weeks.
The articles were on Bukisa. When I first joined Bukisa, I was making some decent revenue every month, but since they've changed their way of handling the revenue sharing, I have not seen a dime. Page views have gone way down too.
Bukisa's PR is much lower than HP, so I want to try putting the articles here instead.
I think they only take a few days to de-index from Google, so I wouldn't worry about the duplicate content sign. You can also email HP staff - firstname.lastname@example.org - to take the duplicate warning off.

Hello, here's something I've been wondering about for a while.I have a few articles on another site, which has recently announced that it's no longer going to pay international contributors. So I'm thinking it would be a good idea to move a couple of them over to HubPages (where we're...

My hub about landscaping4home is still not indexed by any of the search engines. Usually I get at least indexed at one of the three. It's been over a week now. My other Hubs got indexed really fast (within two days).Do I miss something here? I don't know if I did something wrong.I did put two...

Google indexed my new hubs quickly but, according to the hubpages traffic source report, have not sent a single visitor to any of my hubs yet. Even Yandex has, but not Google.Just curious, is there a known issue for Google traffic not appearing on hubpage reports or are they really ignoring my hubs...

I am not going to drag up the recent massive plagiarism activity again, but - as you know Maddie - I have found that quite a lot of my hubs have been de-indexed and my traffic here is dropping despite publishing new work and despite actively promoting myself outside of hubpages. I realize that it...

I have been harassed by hubpages for quite awhile. Some of my Hubs have been controversial and I think they are trying to get me kicked out, but they are accusing me of duplicate copy, which is totally untrue. I write all my own articles. I do research but never ever do I copy and paste in my...

I wrote 4 hubs on calories, all of them are featured. I searched for them and didn't find any of them on the first 5 pages of Google "proper". Then it occurred to me to add ", hubpages" to my search for each hub. A Google page came up, and there they were, all four hubs were the...
