Can I post my Articles on Multiple Blog Sites?

    I'm a little bit confused as far as the legality of posting my articles across different blog sites.  For example: would it be acceptable to post a blog on Google's Blogger and then post that same article on another blog site or on HP? Or is it legal but frowned upon? Blog etiquette is clearly new to me!

      You cannot post what you have posted on other sites to HP..it will be moderated for duplicate content. Posting the content from Hubpages to other sites may also cause it to be labelled as duplicate. Google also frowns upon such practices.. so better safe than sorry .. I suggest you click on help and read up the FAQ and the learning center articles to help you navigate this site easily.

      Posting exactly the same article on multiple sites is an old trick used by internet marketers - but it can actually work against you today.  If some "internet expert" is recommending it to you, they're way behind the times!

      If you have the same article on multiple sites, Google will rank one high, and demote the rest.  The trouble is, you have no way of controlling which one will rank high.  So for instance, you might post here on HP (which has reasonably good income potential), then post on another site which doesn't generate income - and if Google decides to feature the second one, you've just missed out on earnings.

      The modern way to do it is to write different articles on the same subject and interlink them.

    As stated above, Hubs have to be unique (not elsewhere online).

    The help section should provide more answers. What you can do is to post links to your hubs on other sites..........cool

    It's best NOT to post the same article elsewhere smile it gets flagged as duplicate. You CAN write a entirely NEW article elsewhere thats similar or related and use your author bio to point back to your HP site smile

    As everyone else is saying, you can't duplicate your HP anywhere else. However, it would be to your advantage to do backlinks, which would lead people to your hub on HP.
