I want to move content from my existing website (the domain name is about to expire and I don't plan to renew it) and I got a warning about duplicate content. It is... but I'm taking the other website down in a couple of weeks. What should I do? I want to keep my articles online somewhere. Thanks.
Remove them from public domain, keep them privately stored where a search engine cannot access it for indexing.
Use the Google Webmaster URL removal tool to de-index the old URLs. It only takes about 24 hours (you will need to unpublish them first on the original site). After this you can immediately republish them anywhere you like with new URL's:
https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools … mp;rlf=all
If they have any backlinks you could use a 301 redirect.
Depending on how long you have until your domain expires and If you have access to your server you could put a 301 redirect in place for each article that points search engines to their new location on HubPages. That should solve the duplicate content problem reasonably quickly and pass on the benefit of any links that are currently pointing to them.
If you do this I would also suggest you contact he HP team to let them know what’s happening just in case they have a problem with the 301.
How long till the domain expires?
Only about 3 weeks. It's an SBI site and I'm paying too much every month to keep the site up. I'm not sure if I can do a 301 redirect there.

Two of my hubs needs revisions before republication because of duplicate content. But what if those hubs are just similar to the articles I myself have previously published in the net before? So basically I'm not copying anybody else's work, because both are mine. Is that allowed here? If not, how...

A while ago I checked out one hub of a suspicious writer. I mean by that, a forum post seemed to indicate that the writer was one of the get-rich-quick, I-can-teach-you-everything-you-need-to-know-to-make-a-million-online types. That was my assumption, but I could be wrong.Anyway, the...

Is there anyway that a feature can be added to Hubpages that identifies where in a hub it thinks there is an instance of duplication.I recently published a hub which was identified as duplicate, I spent hours researching the topic and typing it up, once published in hub pages it was flagged as...

Why those of us moving over from Squidoo should not try to transfer our lenses to HubPages manually:I just moved one of my recipes that's fairly new, and doesn't have a high search engine ranking, thinking I would use it as a way to become familiar with the HubPages tools. I deleted the Squidoo...

I just published a Hub & got a notice of duplicate content. What is duplicate is verbatim quotes from historical documents that are of course available on the web. The quotes are the basis & reason for the Hub.I put each quote in its own titled module that clearly identifies the...
