Here on Hub Pages I am continuously reading threads about Google loving hubpages hubs. But I have a different experience as new blog-posts performing better than hubs.
I wanted to know if there is anyone else here whose blog-post perform better than hubs in terms of generating organic traffic?
I had a Blog page, and it was a waste of time.
But then I probably never made the most of it. I hope the hubs will be more rewarding. I still have yet to write on.
What's your definition of "performing"? Money or traffic?
Looking at your Hubs, I wouldn't expect them to earn well because they're a bit under-developed - don't think of them as blog posts, think of each one as a self-contained magazine article, which needs photos, video clips and links to make it attractive.
I also note that you don't have any links on your profile, which is surprising for someone who knows their way around the internet.
Rite now traffic which I MENTIONED ABOVE too. And obviously more traffic means more money. Though I am not displaying ads on a couple of new blogs of mine so money is not a matter of concern rite now.
Ok, thanx a lot for taking some time out to have a look at my hubs and commenting. If I show you my blog posts, they are taken from stuff already available on the web. A total copy paste BUT with all credits and links given to the real locations and authors. Still it performs better.
Having no links on profile might be surprising for you but people who have famous websites on the web won't try to defame their sites by mentioning them under their names when the visitors think they are run by some company with 20 or so employees.
I think your hubs need a bit of work. The text is quite brief, and in the couple I read, slightly oddly laid out, some very long paragraphs, some very short ones with big spaces in between them. And hubs offer a great multi-media platform - not only pics, but links and videos, too.
I find HubPages performs a lot better than my blogs in terms of traffic. I find to be a more versatile platform to use - very easy to use.
Much better traffic on HP for now, but just started the blog so hard to tell. Give it a few months.
I have many websites and blogs and have been earning money online for 10 years. I haven't seen google or yahoo traffic this good on any other site. That's why I'm making as many hubs as I can.
Yes, my other sites make money but the traffic is much harder to get, than here at hubpages.
For now my best traffic comes from hubs with at least 800 words. I've tried shorter and they don't seem to be doing as well. But it summer, and traffic is usally down this time of year. So I'm going to give them the month of September before I add words.
My Hubs get better traffic from the search engines from my Blogs, but then the content of the Hubs is much more varied. I put more effort into the Hubs as well
Maybe I should wait and see if I can get some traffic from search engines on my hubs. Its hardly a month since I joined Hub Pages.

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?

This is long, so here's the bottom line: Basically, my problem is I want to build a site around the same topics and keywords I've done well with here on HP, but I don't want to do anything that would damage the work...

I have read somewhere here that google search engines take into account the page-views to compute ranking. Is it advisable to delete non-performing Hubs, those with 0 pageviews a day, as a way to increase traffic in an...

Yesterday I spent some time deleting some of my Hubs that were performing badly is this a good idea as my Hub score seems to have taken a big hit.
