I had articles published on triond which seems to have closed so can I now republish on hub pages?
None of the links to my Triond articles work and the site appears to have closed although I'm not certain. As I've kept copies of my articles I'd now like to republish them on Hub pages. Has anyone else had this problem with Triond and do they know if Triond has gone for good or just down for maintenance? If I republish on hub pages I don't want to be reprimanded for duplicate content .
I'm not familiar with Triond; however, I had a similar situation with articles I used to have on Helium and Wikinut. I was able to republish many Helium articles without any problem -- simply put, the site doesn't exist anymore and everything was de-indexed on Google. Wikinut is a different story.
Recently -- due to their new policy of not paying its writers -- I terminated my account with them. All the article were removed; however, when I Googled the articles, they were accompanied by site address and link (which leads to a picture of a kitten), I haven't attempted to publish those articles yet. It's probably safe to republish your article, but you never know how HP or Google will respond in these situations.
It is my understanding that Google will eventually remove those links; however it may take days, weeks, or months for that to happen. If I heard correctly there are tools that can help to de-index these article from google so you can start afresh and republish your articles.
Thanks Dean, yes I was on Helium too and some of my articles on there were hijacked and published elsewhere so if I try to republish on hub pages it's viewed as duplicate. Very annoying as the sites have no contact details so complaining is no use!
Once you know your articles no longer exist on another site you can deindex them by using this link. www.google.com/webmasters/tools/removals?pli=1
It helps, too, to run at least the first two or three paragraphs through an online plagiarism checker such as www://smallseotools.com/plagiarism-checker/.
Thanks Lane, the de index link will be useful. I know about the plagiarism checker and use it as sometimes I' have several versions of an article and I forget which one I've used . Being a writer is more complicated than just the writing nowadays!

How do I set tags once an article is published?Strangely, I didn't get the option when setting up the hub this time. I can't see where to do it now that the article is published. Do I have to republish?
