Is it okay to post the same article in both HubPages and sites like InfoBarrel? Does the terms and condition of HubPages prevent the writer from posting the same article elsewhere?
HubPages used to allow duplicate content, but we don't any more. Original, unique content performs much better.
Search engines recognize content that appears in more than one location as well, so this should be avoided if you are interested in making money regardless of the policies of any website. Both pages will receive penalties if Google has no definite time record showing which one of the pages is the original - and this will usually happen regardless if you don't contact Google directly as a webmaster.
You can write wherever you like.
However, you should make sure that you do not create duplicate content anywhere where you do write.
If you're going to write for other places, then you must write original content, so nothing you post anywhere is consider duplicate content. Because, if you post duplicate content elsewhere, then you're likely to be devaluing your own work.
HP doesn't allow duplicate content.
Not to mention, it would also be wise, to figure out which you want to make money from or both. If you want you can create on Infobarrel and direct people to your hubs or other places, to generate revenue.
Make sure you create one-way links between articles and locations you write. Do not create two-way links, because they are not of the same value to Search Engines who check your work.
But, you can write for both or any other place you choose.
I hope that helps.
Your right about the one-way links, but you don't have to worry about this if these links are all on the same domain. So two-way linking between your hubs or infobarrel posts is perfectly fine.
I didn't mention anything about inter-linking between articles. Did I?
People get confused by the fact you mentioned pretty often, so I thought I would shed some additional light.
Infobarrel seems like a copy of HubPages down to the colors and format, but as far as everything else it seems to perform like HP, plus it pays a little more. The key as others have said is to write original content for both sites...

Yes, I understand, the algorithm could settle. I'm not holding my breath though. What can Hubpages do to appease Google?I can see nothing less than:- Taking out the bottom 40% of articles in terms of quality.- Pre-approving each and every article like InfoBarrel. - Removing ALL duplicate content. -...

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...

What's the hubpages view on copying free license text and passing it off as your own?Even if quoted, its duplicate content.. which I'm sure would be penalized.. but is it acceptable to do it in the first place?I was just looking at a hub by a constantly-complaining hubber - and her hub is 100%...

I was reading a Hub on Hubpages, and was concerned to read the advice that the content we use in our Hubs should be unique, not something we've posted elsewhere on the net.I started out on Helium and have nearly 200 articles on that site. When I joined HubPages, I saw it as a great opportunity to...

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I wrote a hub about Mormons being Christians from an inside perspective. A few days after it was published it got moderated for duplication. However, the only hubs I can find on the subject have the exact OPPOSITE...
