Oh, my. Just when you think it’s safe to go back in the eHow pool, eHow has un-deleted articles en masse.
Um, was Santa early? Nope. I’m thinking it’s just another eHow boo-boo. Why? Because eHow restored not only the “sweeps” victims, but in my case, they re-published all the articles that I deleted myself!
Funny thing is, I had edited most of my articles to read, “deleted by author” before actually deleting them, and that is how they stand. There is no content in the articles I deleted, and I’ve neither the time nor the inclination to delete them again.
If you have articles on eHow that you want to delete and re-post elsewhere, I suggest you edit them first to replace your original text to prevent potential duplicate-content issues in the future.
Should be fun to see if they earn any $$$ this time around…
