I am a writer on a couple websites. I write blogs, articles, copy and other pieces. I am being paid for those items. They are presumably being sold to clients who use them on their own blogs and websites with their own name attached to the pieces I write.
Am I allowed to publish those writings here on my hubs?
Does it make a difference if my hubs will not be connected to adsense or other remunerative sources?
PS...Having to verify my email address simply to ask a question here, after having submitted and published hubs, seems unnecessary and annoying. What's the point?
Look at your user agreements on those various sites and see if you have indeed sold all rights. Most likely the answer is yes. But, if by chance one of those sites grants you permission to republish the pieces, or if the rights expire after a certain length of time, them by all means republish them here, or on your own website.
Another option is to simply use your previous research to write similar, but different pieces to post here. If you've already done most of the legwork before, it shouldn't be to hard to rework the old pieces into something new. For instance, add some references to related products and place appropriate amazon capsules. Or add more current information. Chances are if you sold the articles a while ago, there might be some information that has changed, or some current event that ties into the theme. You're a professional writer, get creative
Even if you have not sold the rights, do not publish them here unless you first get all other copies of them completely removed from the www. Every article on HP must be original and not appear elsewhere.
Reworking your previous articles is a good idea, but the wording must be completely changed. Simply updating a few facts and adding some Amazon capsules is not enough to keep an article from being deemed a duplicate.
No. Hubcontent must be unique and not appear anywhere else online.
And more than likely, when you sold them, you also sold them the copyright.
If it's published elsewhere online it's called "duplicate content". Google does not like duplicate content and therefore, neither does Hubpages.

When I first started at HubPages, I wrote several Hubs of around 800 to 900 words. Now the goals for creating quality Hubs include 1250 or more words of content. I've noticed that some Hubbers seem to be padding their...

I was going to treat a hub like a blog on a topic, but I seem to see that hubs are just individual articles or am I totally missing the idea?

I can't seem to find an answer for this in the learning center. I have a large set of articles I've been writing for a while + some time on my hands to dedicate to Hubpages for the next couple of months. Would...

I feel concerned that the reason google may prefer ehow as opposed to hubpages, is because there is an abundance of poetry and short stories. I am not by any means saying that those who publish the short stories...

I have to admit that I did not do a lot of research on Hubpages before joining, but since that time I had read countless articles on it along with the Google Panda updates. Of particular interest to me was the...
