My question is for those of you with multiple identities on Hubpages. Is there a time when a name has too many hubs and you create a new one? Or is it only to create niches? I haven't seen many people with more than 300 or 400 hubs, so maybe they are spinning off to a new name? Which method works best for Adsense?
Good question. I'm relatively new on HP, only 10 hubs thus far, but I recently asked a similar question because of my interest in writing sales hubs that I don't want to lump together with my "inspirational" hubs...Hopefully someone here can give us more good insight
P.S. I actually already have another identity on HubPages which I created just for covering one or two very specific topics. I imagine that some hubbers also do this when they don't want their hubs on a particular topic to be associated with their "main" identities. I haven't yet set up another identity for selling things, but I might do that soon.
Doesn't matter either way for Adsense, though. Google doesn't care what identity of you wrote the content just that it was written.
A lot of the mutliple-name thing is about niche. Some of it is about being a BS artist. Some make a big mess (fighting with everyone, etc.) out of their name and "start clean" under a new one.
There are Hubbers with - like - 1000 or more Hubs. Even with 300, though, for the person who writes on here in his spare time, 300 can take quite awhile. Having a different name for something like "all parenting" and then "all car mechanics" can make sense, especially if you want to clump together your own niches/identity and deal with them as one thing over the Internet.
Many people, though, say they just mix whatever they write under one one name. I think it depends on whether you're really focusing on a "business" approach versus personal approach, particularly if your writing extends outside the "walls" of HubPages.
I have a second identity and use it to write completely different types of Hubs. Having a second identity gives you a fresh voice and financially my second voice is more successful than my main personna.
i think new identity with new niece is not a bad idea for adSense.you can also compare which niece perform better for adsense and put more emphasis on it
This is good input. When I first started, I just clumped everything together. But now I see that some topics earn regularly while others are duds. I didn't know if having the duds under the same name would hurt the good earners.
I am beginning to think having several identities is a good thing. People are starting to copy my niche ideas, and that isn't good.
I guess that's one disadvantage of writing here - after a while it's obvious to spot those following TKA and other writing programmes :-).
You have hit the nail on the head. That is one of the best reasons for writing under other names. Anyone who posts on the forums, especially those who share their successes, will find their work copied. Have one persona for the forums, and another for business.
Yes I have multiple identities and quite a few websites. But other me has written 40+ hubs in the same niche so it's a bit of a giveaway that it might be a juicy niche.
The only good thing is that it's incredibly hard to dislodge existing hubs in search results, so there is definate first mover advantage.

Do you more experienced Hubbers believe writing about controversial topics like politics hurts or help your page traffic? For example, if you disagree with someone's political Hub, will you not visit their other Hubs?
