Let's say you're writing for Hubpages but you created your own blog to help promote your work. So for every article you publish on Hubpages, you include...say... the first two paragraphs of it on your blog and link back to the full article on Hubpages. Would that be looked at as "duplicate content"?
It probably would, yes. Search engines would see identical text.
If two complete paragraphs were quoted, I suspect that would be counted as duplicate content.
It's best to write an original paragraph about each article. It's not hard, I do it all the time.
So basically, an original paragraph that sort of summarizes each article in a way and then links back to the full one. Cool, I'm going to do that.
However, consider that your new blog has no authority and no readers, so the links won't be worth much.
Also, if you use Blogger and your whole blog is nothing but links back to your Hubs, it may get banned for spam.
Well, one of my plans is to eventually start commenting/blogging about news that pertains to my blog's topic, this would be totally original content aside from the links back to these articles.
Question though, going back to duplicate content... so when we submit links of our work to social networking/bookmarking sites like Facebook and Digg which includes the link, the title, and a short summary, google won't count that as duplicate content?
I also started a blog like that when I first started here. It's abandoned now.
What you can do is sign out of out Google (if you use gmail) and make a brand new blog with a new username and email address.
Do not put your adsense code in the new blog.
Choose a title that is optimised for search traffic - the more readers you get the higher the PR will go.
Backlink all your hubs that are on the same topic as the blog title.
Accompany each link with a short description, and maybe add other people's links too, with a short blurb. That looks more natural, and gives your blog more weight unless you have an awful lot of hubs based around the same keywords.

I am planning on taking a long trip. I am going to write about it here on Hubpages. My question is can I use some of my hubs to create an e-book about the trip or would that be considered duplicate content? ...what say ye?

ok ... so if we copy content from another site on to a hub, it won't get published .. fair enough and I agree. However, if someone copies our content, we get an alert but our hub won't get unpublished as it's not our fault. So what is to stop us copying our own hubs onto a blog of our own ???Jus'...

I notice several disgruntled Hubbers on Eric's new Hub, saying they're leaving HubPages because of the duplicate content flags.They seem to be misunderstanding what the dup content flag is all about - either they think they're being penalized, or that the flag means they have to delete the Hub.I...

I know this might seem like beating a dead horse, but...A lot of hubbers, even hubbers who have really written fab hubs and contribute a great deal of inspiration in the forums have been copying answers from other answer sites and using them as their own in the answer section in HubPages.I can...
