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?'
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other site before the hub has been indexed, HubPages may see the hub as "duplicate content," and the hub may then be unpublished.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).
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.

I have been harassed by hubpages for quite awhile. Some of my Hubs have been controversial and I think they are trying to get me kicked out, but they are accusing me of duplicate copy, which is totally untrue. I write...

I don't think I'm alone in thinking that the main thing that has dragged hubpages down in this latest algo change is the amount of crappy content posted on here over the years. I understand the reasoning behind the...

I'm sure this has been asked before, but I can't find the answer. If I have written on HubPages am I allowed to publish that hub on another site? I may alter it a little to make it shorter, but it would basically be the...

I found out this morning that this site had stolen at least 2 of my hubs. The more I looked, the more I noticed that it appears every single post on the site is a stolen hub, completely copied in most cases (including...
