      Priyanka why would you want to do that.?. people are moving their articles to their own domain and you want to do the opposite..you may not even earn much here for all the effort.
      Your hubs will be marked duplicate and deleted ... so you may have to have them de-indexed by Google before you plant them here..
      Best wishes to you smile

      Google has a method called 301 Redirects. You can add a meta tag that will tell Google that your website is now on Hubpages. The 301 redirect will help keep your existing search engine rankings.

        @ Bruce How do you do that?

          Hi BeatsMe. I have a hub on that as well, but it depends on the language that the website is written in.  However, Google has a webmaster page written on this. If you have a Google Webmaster account, there is a section on 301 redirects. If you do not have a Google Webmaster account, you can set one up for free.

          I hope this helps smile

    Hi, Priyankaa.

    Multiple windows, coupled with Copy & Paste would work best for that. Unpublish each of your pages on your site, do a redirect for each of the pages to your new pages at HubPages and voila! smile

    However... ... ... an alternative would be...

    Leave a small portion of each page at your site with a link to each new HubPage URL.

    Best wishes!

    My advice would be to keep them at your own domain. They are ranked high as you say. As sofs said many are moving away from HubPages, not to HubPages. If you run your own website, you have greater control over the content and the quality. You can be sure that your rankings are not influenced by bad content on the same domain (as it appears to have happened here at HubPages.com).

      Dear everyone,
      Thank you very much for all your suggestions. I have this website of 2 years old and not making any money though is high ranking at goggle due to the topic i selected. I am thinking of closing my domain account and move everything to here. 
      I will follow ProCW's advise, to link my domain address at each of my Hubpages...May I know if this will make sense if the topic and my website contents are totally unrelated ?

        That could be considered as spamming by HubPages because the website is totally unrelated. But if a hub is about that topic then it should be fine (unless your own website to much).

        Very bad idea.  Google values age.  Your website is two years old.  If you move everything to HubPages, you will lose that age and start all over again as a newborn! 

        Age is much too valuable to waste.  If you're not making money with your website, you have it set up incorrectly.   You need to look at other kinds of advertising.

        Moving your content to HubPages won't magically earn you money.  Your website has the potential to do much better than a collection of Hubs, especially as it's already established.  You just need to fix what's wrong with it. 



        You can put two links in each of your Hubs BUT only if the Hub is about the same subject as your website.  If it's not related, your Hub will be unpublished. 

        Also, you must not put a link in every single Hub - only do it in half to two-thirds.

    Also, you are considered to be over-promotional if a large proportion of your hubs link to the same web site, even if it is relevant to the hub content.

    I would suggest that you transfer over one page to see if it does any better here or not before investing all that effort.

      Great Idea psycheskinner.....can you please advise how to inform google that I will redirect my webpage to hubpages in order to avoid being track as a duplicate copy ?

      1. psycheskinner profile image82
        psycheskinnerposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        You could put a 401 redirect at the old site so that traffic going there comes here--but only if you have access to the servers there and can upload a file.  This can also make google nervous if it comes across as page-napping, but it is generally okay.  Otherwise you can simply remove the text from that page and add a link to the new site.  Google will work it out.

    Priyankaa,

    Have you ever considered the idea of keeping the site as it is and rewrite the content to build hubs?

      My thoughts exactly.  Moving content from an entire website to HubPages is the craziest idea I've heard in a while!

        sometimes the craziest ideas are the ones that work out but I don't know about this one...

    A 301 is done by adding code to the old page: http://www.webconfs.com/how-to-redirect-a-webpage.php

    Agree with Marisa - why would you want to move an aged website to Hubpages? Sort out what is wrong with it, get adsense in the right place, check your keywords etc.
    You can remove pages from google search through the webmaster tools if you did want to move the odd page so that it was not counted as duplicate. But yes, only try one at a time if you have to so taht you can see if it is worth it.

    I don't think this is a good idea specially if traffic to your site is huge.  If your pages are already indexed by google and other search engines then hubpages will see your artilces as duplicate content and may penalise you.  Its best to keep your site and write new articles here.  Thanks.
