What would you recommend as far as unpublishing a blog post and putting it on HubPages goes?
What is your experience with it? Any pitfalls? Having to deal with content scrapers that might have stolen your content, RSS feeds, web caches, etc.? How long did you wait before republishing it? Did you rewrite any of the content?
I did this on my old account and it went well. I simply deleted by blog post and made a hub with all its contents, and add a few photos and videos to make it more presentable. I did no rewriting but I waited for a week before I published it here to make sure that Google crawlers acknowledge my blog content's removal. The said hub is sustaining an average of 20 views per day for almost a year now.
Good luck and God bless!
Thanks for sharing. Would it be okay to revert it to draft instead of deleting it, seeing as in both cases it isn't viewable on the blog? Then I could import pictures by URL in to photo capsules. Or I could just save them to my PC and upload.
You can reduce the problems with duplicate content by using something called a '301 redirect'. This means that if someone (or a search engine spider) tries to vist the page where your content was, they will automatically be re-directed to your hubpages article.
This also passes on any linkjuice and reputation it had in the original spot. I have done this with a couple of articles from my own blog, quite effectively.
If you google '301 redirect plugin' for your blogging platform, th\t should tell you how to set it up.
