If I wanted to start writing many article on one subject, would it be more viable to write articles on HubPages or open a blog dedicated to these articles.
I am thinking or making a lot of anime related articles and I was wondering this.
I more than happy to give you my take on the subject.
I feel if you have a niche you love and enjoy writing about keep writing about it. Over time your niche will reach visitors who enjoy your choice of topic and will continue to become a follower and will read your new Hubs you write.
Blogs? I have a few and I just started to edit them and update them. The URL to the blogs are indexed by the search engines and when I saw that I felt it was time to tweak and update them.
The more URLs you have out on the web about the same topic/subject with all original content the better of a chance you will have to increase regular visitors. Just my opinion because following this method has increased my view and traffic. I want people to come back to use my articles as a reference.
You should also consider creating a one whooping website about your niche and place links to your Hubs on it. I recently did this and wow, the traffic I am receiving.
Keep working at it because over time it will add up. Nascar is your think I see. That's great. You should place a link to other Hubs on the topic because that too will help you increase traffic.
I hope my suggestions help. Let me know. Have a great day.
The problem with starting a blog is that getting readership is hard. You have to do lots of promoting to get it noticed. And to keep it high in Google's eyes, you have to post regularly. You may think you have a lot of articles, but a daily or even weekly post to a blog will chew threw them faster than you think - how many weeks can you keep going?
If you have enough to keep you going for several months, go for the blog. But then also write several Hubs with a link to your blog, to promote it. Make sure you don't duplicate Hub content on your blog or vice versa.
If you write Hubs, they get noticed much faster without the same need for promotion. So if you have only 20 or 30 articles, I'd write Hubs instead.
One more suggestion Steve. I took the time to create a couple of free websites which came out pretty good. Anyway, use the link feature Hubpages offers. I placed a link to my free websites within my Hubs which fit the topic/subject. I also put a free hit counter at the bottom of my websites to see if I received any traffic. It's only been a few days and I have received 20 visits to the free websites. So I guess it's working. It all adds up.
Have a great night.
So, basically, I should write 2 times on the same topic, one on the blog and one on HubPages?
If you have a niche you want to develop, having a blog with the niche in the url pays off better in the long run.
But if you don't really have much to write on the niche, stick with hubpages.
I plan on writing tons about anime in one blog and the same in NASCAR. They would all kinds of topics within those fields.
So, I have another question then. If I am going to write on anime, then you mean I should put the word "anime" in the title.
Absolutely. Use the Google keywords tool to see if you can identify what anime fans are looking for, then try to incorporate those words into the URL of your blog or Hubs.
Remember, there are thousands of other websites trying to get to the top of google for anime, you might want to choose something a bit easier to get in to, or choose a longer keyphrase on anime which has less competition!
