I noticed that a lot of people over the last six months or so have frequently discussed removing their under performing content and reposting it elsewhere once the content is deindexed, or just removing it all together.
This makes total sense to me and thought I would give it a try.
I found some backlinks I had posted out to hubs that were now removed, and when I clicked on them, it takes you to a page with the same URL that your page had, but it says:
"No longer published
The article you are looking for is no longer published. The author may have chosen to unpublish it, or it may have been unpublished by a moderater because of a violation of HubPages rules.
Back to HubPages
If you are the author of this page, sign in and you can edit or republish your Hub."
If there's 1000 pages that got taken down in the last few months (example number, I don't have any statistics), and they all say that now, that's 1000 pages of duplicate content. Sure, your content its self was "deindexed" and you can post it wherever now, and of course because it's a page duplicate it's not going to rank in Google so it SEEMS to be gone, but I assure you, it's not.

I am moving this question over here to ask for help from the hubpages team.2 of my hubs and some of hovalis' hubs seem to have had a penalty applied by google and have disappeared from the search rankings down to the last page. The conclusion we have come to is that they have been flagged for...

I was approached by a company who saw some of my hubs and was interested in cross-posting them to their own blog for their readers. They would include credits, links etc, but I was a little unsure of whether to do that or not. On the one hand, it would be additional exposure for my hubs and my...

I propose that duplicate content be banned outright on HubPages. Hub Hopping shows the massive amount of stolen or copied content on HP and denigrates serious writers here. Others have made the same complaint, but I think HP should seriously consider banning duplicate content outright.This isn't...

I have been writing articles for several years. They are submitted to about 200+ article directories. If I use one of these articles for a Hub is it considered duplicate content?The articlesw are cre34ated by myself.
