I have a long hub and would like to separate things. Can I?
If your hub has been published and you use the same text to make another hub it could be moderated for duplicate content. You may want to add at least three times the information to make it a new hub..
- copy pasting text may get you into trouble...
you may have to get your previous hub recrawled by the bots.. after deleting the required text.. I was wondering if it is worth the trouble.. you might as well write a new hub.. IMHO
I meant to delete the parts from the main hub and use them in another hub.
Yes, but only once the original content has cleared from the Google cache.
How do I know that it is cleared from google cache?
Put the URL of the hub into Google search and when it pops up in Google results, click on "cache". That will show how Google has saved its latest view of the page.
A quick way to get Google to recrawl the hub once you've removed the extra content is to ping it (free) at Pingler.com
How long does it take for the original content to clear from the Google Cache?
Something to consider when making a two part hub, aside from what has already been discussed, is that you want to make sure both parts flow nicely with each other and you have enough info in both to be a decent length/good standalone hub. Treat each hub as just that, a piece that can stand on its own two feet if readers miss out on the other one. Without being repetitive thought
I would make sure to state at the beginning as well as the end that there is a second part to the hub and maybe even give readers an idea of what will be in the next one. Links to the second hub (and vice versa) within the first are also a great tool to use.
I have republished several hubs from one account to another with no problems, some up to five months ago with no comeback
Polly, I guess the implementation of these rules for duplicate content wasn't so strict earlier... and you seem to have got away with that
I first deleted the original before republishing though, so didn't have duplicate content - is that not ok to do that then?
Hi, I think Nare Anthony might be ok if she makes sure to unpublish the first hub and perhaps even leave it unpublished for a few days. You can do all the separating in drafts before republishing.
In that case she may not be able to use the same URL...
Me thinks ... all this would depend on how long the original hub is and how much text would be drawn from that to the other hub...
Personally speaking, I would rather leave things as they are and write another hub.. that is my opinion of course.
All she needs to do is remove the content for the second hub from the first hub. She doesn't need to unpublish anything, as republishing the first hub would remove all content.
As long as Google sees that the duplicate content is gone (once they recrawl the hub) it'll be fine.
hey yaw'll, i am fixing to try all of this out. I had this "paper" which is what I call Hubs, that was becoming an epic novel, with all kinds of branches and tentacles. I decided to break it up. I left 90% of the material hidden to the viewer. All of that material is going into new hubs, several. I plan to delete it out of the original hub after copying it elsewhere into the new hubs. I am worried about getting flagged for duplicate content. I am going to try, perhaps, these steps. How long does it take for the cache to clear, or the hub to be recrawled, on it's own? do I have anything to worry about? Thanx.

I would like to make a suggestion to the TEAM here on HUB Pages. I feel that it would be a positive improvement here on the HUB, if all of the activity that is perpetuated by Hubbers, were made known.For instance... apparently - anyone can go around giving thumbs UP or DOWN to a fellow...

Is it wise to copy my hubs onto my business website?
by ShreejanaHickman 9 years ago
Hi,I'm a brand new hubber. For my first hub, I picked an article, I wrote on my blog. I don't have any affiliate links or link to my blog. I'm not trying to promote my blog, I just thought that article might be an intresting read. I published about an hour ago, now it says...

I have a hub that I have yet to publish. I've been working on it and then this warning suddenly shows up "WARNING [?]NOTE: A substantial portion of the content on this hub appears on other pages". How do I get rid of this warning? And how can I find exactly which part of this hub has 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...

I would appreciate if Staff would tell me whether GamerGirl and Whitney, both of whom have chosen to crawl through all my output (output which staff courteously restored after I had totally deleted it on my sabbatical) and repetitively downthumb and flag me, have been assigned by staff as my...
