    I am still confused about the link rules. Is it okay to put a link to one of my hubs in Yahoo Buzz? People would be able to see the hub from there, so is that considered duplicate publication?

    Great question I was wondering the same thing.

    Posting a link with an excerpt doesn't break duplicate content rules.

    PLUS the duplicate content rules ONLY apply to copying things from other sites onto Hubpages. You can copy a hub onto any other site you want (as long as that site allows duplicate content.)

      Actually, Maddie frowns on that. I used to do that at Business Insider and if she understood my question correctly, she said no. Turns out the BI page is now higher than the Hubpage where it appeared first. I can't believe Google would let that happen. But they did.

      If you can clarify this for me please do.

        Yes, it is actually quite silly to post the exact same content on two different places online. However you still retain all rights to your work, so technically you can do what you wish with it.

        However any content you've republished somewhere else online will have a red C beside it in your account list.

          Wry, it used to be a good thing to post at business insider, not just a snippet but the whole or most of the hub. It gave my hubs a huge lift, until the algorithm. I have been writing here that big websites with authority swap articles all the time. Even Yahoo gets articles from everywhere and it doesn't hurt the source, Reuters, BI, FT, Associated Press, etc.

          If dup content is forbidden I wish maddie would clear this up. I think she emailed me and said it would hurt hubpages, if I understand her correctly.

          The little red c didn't bother me because she said it didn't hurt hub ranking. However, now that may be different. I pulled an article from hubpages and published it to my own website hoping that the links to other hubpage articles will do better. So far that hasn't happened, but maybe later it will improve.

            bga, there was a rule change at HP a short while ago, and duplicate content is no longer allowed at all.

            A short excerpt in a backlink is not considered duplicate, but copying major portions of a hub onto another site will result in unpublishing it here on HP.  It is indeed your property and you can copy it where you want to, but it is HP's site here and they don't have to publish it here and won't.

            Duplicate content is not cut and dried.  A couple of quotes (as in link excerpts or actual quotes) are not a problem, but can be overdone.  Verbatim quotes of, perhaps, laws are OK when limited.  Large blocks of text are not OK, and the problem is deciding how far to go.  Personally, I just keep it to a bare minimum and don't try to push the envelope.

              So, my point is made. Google has two standards. One for the sites it likes and one for the sites it doesn't like so much.

              That is a problem and is actually unethical on the part of Google.

    You do retain ownership of your work and are free to republish it where you want. But HP has every right to unpublish your hub, as the new rules forbid duplicate content.

      The rules forbid duplicate content being published here; they can't forbid you reposting original content from here somewhere else. If that were the case people who get their content copied a lot would continually spend all day sending out DMCAs.

    The Yahoo Buzz thing sounds interesting, but it's better on the long run to just not duplicate content. It's a lazy way of doing it. But by all means get as many people as possible to be aware of the Original's existence...
