Should I move some of Hubs to my blog?

    I am considering moving some of my more popular Hubs to a new blog I am building which focuses on the WiFi hotspot niche I have a lot of experience in.  What does everyone else think?

      If the Hubs are on the same subject as the blog, then yes I would do it.  In the long term, your blog is likely to perform better because it's specialised. 

      Do some research on how to build an email list, create a newsletter etc so you can start to build a following, and give some thought to how you could earn money by marketing to your following.

        Well I already have Adsense on the blog and have been making sales through Amazon associates.  I just need more content, as you suggest I think it will perform better if all the content is on one topic, my HP account is a mix of different subjects so that's why I feel the articles which do well here might do even better on  the blog.

      Sure and why not? you can provide your hub as a link in your other blogs. I have done this in the past.

    Less chance of earning money on a brand new blog than you have here on HP.

      The blog is about six months old and gets about 30 visits a day with only 3 posts, I'm thinking if I more all related articles there (10,000 words plus of content) it should start to get more views, even if I get fewer views I will still get 100% of revenue generated rather than just 60% like I get here.

    I agree with Sue Adams - In fact, if I were going to move anything to a blog, it would be the lower performing hubs. That way you're not risking much. It should not be too hard to write new articles on the same topic as your popular hubs to put on your blog.

      I agree with Sherry.

    Lately I've been going in the opposite direction - re-working a bunch of stuff that I had posted at another site (I won't mention any names... let's just say it starts with "B," hahaha) and turning them into Hubs.

      Oh I wouldn't put any decent content on that site!!!!!  Not for $0.0001 a view view or whatever it is now!

        Oh, believe me, I know...haha. I had to jump thru so many frickin hoops to claim my first and only "redemption" there that I said "screw this place, it ain't worth it," and took down all my posts.

        In recent months it's become even more obvious that they'd hit the iceberg and were going down, so I am very glad that I jumped off that Titanic ahead of the rush...haha
