I'm a new Hubber, and I'm getting ready to post my first article on here! I have a few questions, and hopefully you can help me with them.
- Can people 'steal' or copy your articles and post them to other sites, or as other Hubs? Does this happen frequently? How can I prove that it was MY Hub in the first place?
- Can I do reviews of products (they would be full length ones with photos) and if I made a video version of the review, could I place this at the bottom?
- This is more of a Google Adsense question. I live in Barbados, in the Caribbean, and I read on their website that I would be paid via cheque in the mail or by Western Union. Do any of you have experience with this? Is it reliable?
Welcome to Hubpages!
You cannot post duplicated articles on HP. It isn't allowed. You must post/write original content.
Yes, it happens, but HP has safeguards in place that are supposed to prevent it from happening.
By the date it was published. The oldest prevails over anything new.
My checks have never bounced.
Must be, if I've never had one bounce.
1) Yes, they can steal content with scrapers and such. That's the nature of the Internet. And no, if you're just starting don't worry about **** like that. Worry about it when it actually happens.
2) Yes, you can post both video AND text reviews.
3) I've received several checks from Adsense. Google has BILLIONS in cash. Don't worry about their checks bouncing.
-Yes, it happens if you have some popular hubs. I have had a few hubs get stolen and reposted, but I have never noticed this result in a drop of traffic.
-Yes, you can absolutely post video reviews.
-As for Google Adsense, don't worry, Google will not bounce a check anytime soon. They have more money than just about any government on the planet.
Welcome to Hubpages, Cardia! Since it looks like everyone else has answered your questions, I am going to give you an unrequested piece of advice. Pick a niche from the beginning. Stay focused on that niche. Not only will it be easier to get backlinks since you won't have to waste alot of time promoting hubs on all sorts of different topics. If the traffic problems continue here, it will make it easier to move all your hubs over to your own website.

None of us are hubbing 24/7 so I'm guessing many hubbers also have a day job, be that an accountant, a mum, a dentist etc etc. Personally, I am Assistant Director for Resources in local government. An interesting role that is constantly changing, hence the generic title! Some days I wish I had...

Hello everyone, I am RJ. I have been a member of hubpages for three years now but it's been an on again, off again relationship so far. I have also been very inconsistent with my hubs. And this is the first time I am posting on the forum. Well, not exactly, because I replied to one forum post...

Is hubbing a waste of time if I don't plan on making any money, but would like to hone my skills? Constructive criticism, along with positive reinforcement would be my goals here instead of profit.I'm looking to be appreciated for entertainment value as opposed to teaching, advising or promoting...
