It Really Is All my own Work - Honest!

Hello - I am a refugee from Suite101. As a new writer on here (and enjoying it!) I have made sure all my articles that were on Suite have been deleted from that site.   I notice when I have published a couple of articles on here from Suite that I get a note when I clicked the Publish button  saying that they are published on Suite.   I just thought I'd cover my back - they aren't there any more. :)

By the way, I am really impressed with that feature!  It gives you a link to where others might have copied your work. The facilities on here are brilliant.

Kathleen, they may be cached on Google. Otherwise, they'd be impossible to find. That's why they say anything you write on the web will always be on the web. Do a Google search for them and see if anything comes up. I've been revising some very old blog posts, and double checking to make sure they can't be found with a search. Stuff does go away, but some seems to hang in forever. If you have the patience, rewrite your articles, making the wording and arrangement as different as possible from the originals. Also give them new names.

Welcome to Wizzley, Kathleen!  Smile

I noticed the same thing while I was reviewing you article, just a few minutes ago. But I saw that it was deleted from Suite. So I approved it.

Great book review!  Smile

I'm using a Copyscape Premium check and a note to the Google Webmasters to remove the cache, Kathleen. If you search 'Remove a cached page from Google' you'll get something similar to this page which instructs you on what to do. I'm having to hold back my old work because the cache is a bit like an elephant brain and so I need to have it forget the old content ever existed before I can move on.

Thanks for the advice!    Ah, I get it now!!  I will do some tweaking in future.  Cheers!

Wordchazer - Thanks ever so much.  I have checked that out and will 'study' it... It's a steep learning curve but keeps the little grey cells in quite good condition.  Appreciate it!  (so sorry - got your name wrong first time round....)

Well, that was easy. Congratulations. I'm glad you posted your question because now I know that it's possible to get Google to uncache stuff. At least you didn't have to go that route.

Probably means I don't have to, either, Catana, but I like my work to be unique and consider that self plagiarism is worse than a sin (that's what a background in academic editing will do for you!)

So I'm using the chance to try and have all other versions of my work painlessly euthanized by the Google Gods before I unleash a newly sparkly clean, born-again, happy-clappy version on the world.

Thanks for this post, glad to know how to do this now!  I am still torn about bringing "old" articles over here--thinking I might try to "start fresh."  But then I have some favourites....oh I don't know.

I think I will do a bit of both - I don't want to just put up legacy articles from Suite.  I would like to have a mixture of new articles in with the legacy ones.  I really don't want to abandon my Suite articles because it would be like leaving your kids in an orphanage...  I think they'll enjoy living here.   So as long as they are acceptable to this site I will slowly put them on here - but, with new ones as well.  Eventually the majority of them will be on here and from then on it'll be all new and shiny!

That's my plan too, Kathleen, along with cracking this flipping keyword lark again, as it's a while since I thought in those terms.

Ha, yes!  Back in the saddle again!
