I pulled a couple articles from another website and wanted to post them here. How do I tell when this is "safe". I'd like to avoid the duplicate content thing. Also, is there a way to speed the deindexing thing?
I've read that it takes a few weeks to be de-indexed...you'll have to check back on google search to see[/b]
Put the exact url into Google and if it comes up, it is still indexed. If you get 'no results found', then you are free to re-use it.
If those articles didn't have a url - perhaps were part of a larger article, then paste some of the text into Google search with quotes round them so that Google will look for those words in that exact order.
Don't think there is a way to speed up de-indexing, sorry.
I do indeed have a vague recollection that there is a google link somewhere that takes requests for de-indexing.
Let's see who here can find it first.
There is really no way to speed the deindexing. If you have the URL to the page they were posted on you can go to Google and put in that URL and you will see if it is indexed. Be sure to check the cache at Google because it will be there after the page has vanished from the web. It can unfortunately take 6 months sometimes though not always.
Thanks all for the quick replies You guys rock. It's still there but I'll keep checking. Thanks for the link Izzy. I'm ashamed to admit that after the first couple sentences, the writer apparently switched to Swahili. (probably not, but my mind assures me it is in a foreign language)
I've used fetch in the Google Webmasters tools a few times. I can't say that it actually speeds up de-indexing all the time but in the cases I've used it...it seemed to happen quite quickly. Could be random though?

Do you think nowadays google search engine gives less priority to Hubpages content?Before the Hub used to rank very well but now it seems kinda difficult. What do you think?

How and where can we get our hubs indexed in search engines?There are some hubs and articles, but they are not up with the times. Is there a list of places where we can index our hubs ourselves?
