I was just wondering because I'm beginning to have trouble keeping track of all of my hubs and it will just get worse.
I only have one Identity Brie. And I am sure that is one to many for some here at HP.
You can. Knowing the need for it as frogdropping is said.
I have noticed lots of hubbers that have multiple accounts. Many use one for product hubs and keep those seperated from other types of writing. Some of the very successful hubbers have mentioned having several accounts which seems to be an attempt to keep some of their writing low profile. I have heard other mention they use different accounts for different niches because one account gets hard to manage.
I am sure if you try searching the forum for mutiple accounts or setting up a second acount you will find a lot more information. I have read all of this in the forums.
You are required to have a seperate email for additional account but you adsense and amazon accounts can be added without modification.
Yes you can have two accounts. You can have as many as you like - it's allowed.
What not allowed is to use secondary accounts to post in the forum (so far as I can remember). I have several accounts, the others I just write and publish from. I only use this one for 'across the board' use.
Using more than one account is a good way to home in on a niche, or for publishing a poetry collection, short stories etc.
great, didn't know this, thanks for the gerat info
i was thinking as my hubs keep on growing, eventually it would get hard to manage and control them all.
how many hubs do you on average post as a maximum in 1 account?
I don't see how it would be any easier. If you have multiple accounts, that means you have to constantly be logging in and out to manage each and you also have to watch out that you don't inadvertently fall afoul of the forum rules dealing with multiple accounts.
Instead, if you use Groups, you can select the hubs to see in Statistics. That seems much easier to me than multiple id's.
There are other reasons why someone might to this, but I don't think "easy" really is one of them.
There are pros and cons to using multiple accounts. If building your HP popularity matters to you, then 1 account is best. It's very time consuming trying to build an HP following on multiple accounts. What you could do -and I didn't- is build up one at a time, and then move on to the next.
You can use more than one ID in the forums, if your purposes are innocent and you don't use two ID's in the same thread. So I interpret that to mean like if you're dealing with ...ooh I don't know pet stuff in one of your ID's, and a pet topic comes up in the forums, you can use your pet hubbing ID to address those topics in the forums, even though you usually use another ID in the forums. You'd be switching for a good and innocent reason, so it's okay.
I think it looks better in some topic areas to organic viewers if you have dedicated niche IDs -again depending on the topic. I wouldn't want to have to know that the guy I'm taking advice from concerning my health is also selling vampire repellent kits and writing bios on mass murderers, you know?
So that's how I determine whether or not to use a separate ID. I have an account that I use as a catch-all account, and most stuff can go right in there even if it is a niche I'm going to write alot on.
Other niches I want to invest alot of time in I figure would do best if they had their own accounts.
As near as I've been able to figure, all of this has zero effect on my organic traffic. True, most of my secondary accounts get next to nothing in HP traffic, but that really is fine with me, and seems to make no difference.
All of that said, you can write thousands and thousands of hubs under one account, I would think. And you can 'group' them, which may help with internal organization. If it's organizational purposes only that are concerning you, well I'm not sure I really see how multiple accounts would help, but perhaps so.
I think another reason to have multiple accounts is you can write in a different voice in the same way an author does. I find my second persona here, optimised for particular niche, is far more successful, in terms of earnings per hub, than I (Rik) am.
You can optimise your 'voice' to suit your target audience and your content becomes more focused.
I have two and my second one was to target articles about this island specifically.
Thanks for all of the replies, they have been very useful.
Yes. I'm sure one can have more than one account in Hubpages. Normally from what I see, it's to separate their niches and genres of writing. Some prefer to have an account or two to manage all, and some prefer more than that. Depending on their agendas too, for why they have multiple accounts. As long as the passwords are not lost, I think it should be alright. For hubbing purposes.

I've always wondered why some Hubbers have more than one account. Is this a good thing or not? The only thing I can think of is that after a person writes many Hubs, it becomes a chore to take care of that...

I've noticed a few hubbers mention they have multiple HubPages accounts. Why? Is it helpful to have more than one account? Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Hi everyone. I cover many geeky topics, like Pokemon, Star Wars, all that fun stuff. Sometimes I wonder if readers would be better served by multiple accounts, one per topic, so that they can quickly find what they want...

It seems some of the persons here have multiple accounts with different names. What is the motto behind this?
