    Hi, this is Ru-an smile I created this new account but im still ignorant as to why it is good to have different accounts. I know darkside does this. Maybe if he is around he can enlighten me? Anyone can answer of course. Thanks.

      You can use one for commercial purposes and one to be yourself quite a few of us have two accounts however we only promote our main one leaving the other on the back burner that is only used for other purposes.smile

    There are a few different reasons for different accounts.

    1) Some people prefer to have niche specific accounts for various reasons

    2) A high profile Hubber may not want to expose their good niches and create a second account to limit the copy catting and niche saturation

    3) Multiple accounts could be used for self commenting

    4) A second account could also be used to promote things that aren't so AdSense frindly

    I'm sure there are more reasons, but this should at least get you thinking.

    EDIT: oh yeah, and according to HP terms regarding multiple accounts, they would like you to use just one account for forum posting.

      Ok, thanks for that. Commenting is that important that people would do self commenting?

        This is especially useful for trolls to be able to back themselves up while making idiotic statements and causing strife on the site.  Why HP allows this is yet another well kept secret.

        I suppose only using one account for forum posting is merely a suggestion rather than a requirement.  Mores the pity!

          Lol wow thats crazy.

          Anyway id still like to post in the forum with different accounts maybe, cos i suppose it helps keep hubscore up.

    I have two accounts. I put different types of hubs in them.

    This account has money and affiliate sales oriented hubs (so lots of product hubs)

    The other is more how-to's and editorials. It's a nice way of separating and would make it easier for a person interested in my hubs to find another one they'd like.

      Yeah this is the direction im thinking in. One account for sales and for info and knowledge. Makes it easier for your followers and for people to find you.

        This is a great post.  I have been around here 2 years and never thought about having a different accounts.  It does makes sense 1 for sales, and 1 for info.  Thanks for sharing.

    Different accounts are good if you have multiple niches, goals, and/or personalities.  Ha-ha!
