    Hi. Can I re-publish articles on other paid to write sites that I have already published on Hubpages? If yes, after many days I am allowed to do it?
    Many thanks for your assistance.

      Hello, Lucia. If you publish on other sites, it will have your hubs here flagged as duplicate material. All hubs have to be unique and only published on HubPages.

        Hi Dale. Excuse me I meant that:

        let's suppose that today i will publish my first original hub here.

        May I  re-publish it tomorrow on another paid to write site?'

          You can, but the new site might not be too happy, if it even accepts it. No-one wants duplicate content.
          Can you not write another article for another site?

    HubPages does not give you such a permission. But HubPages also cannot prevent material that is first published on HubPages from getting published on other sites, subsequently. You will probably receive a copyright alert on your account, but there will be no penalty by HubPages. Still, having the same contents posted on other sites may hurt your search engine position.

    If you post on the other site before the hub has been indexed, HubPages may see the hub as "duplicate content," and the hub may then be unpublished.

    Lucia, publishing platform original content issues aside - and they are very valid - why would you want to? It's personal, professional, online suicide and the person you are hurting most is yourself.

    Why not come up with a slightly different take on your subject? Look at it from a different angle and take some fresh photographs. Publish your new article (originally worded from a different perspective) on whichever site you are referring to and either link from your Hub to the other site as a service for your readers or vice versa. (This is much better than linking both ways as Google is more than wise to mutual links).

    Good luck!

    Hubs need to not appear elsewhere on the internet.

    Why not rewrite the whole article from another angle and make it a great back link to the one on Hubpages?  I have done it a couple of times.
    Google frowns on Duplicate content... meaning material that is a copy of the original .. why get the Google slap? Think of it that way.
