Hi, I am new to Hubpages and article writing in general. My question are...
1. Am I ok to write articles on other sites?
2. How if at all would this affect my hubs on hubpages if I use the same or similar content?
You may write anywhere you wish.
You may NOT post duplicate content on HP. This very definitely includes your own material that is posted elsewhere. Even if you post it here first, then put a copy up somewhere else it will be removed from HP.
And welcome to HubPages!
Thank you for replying so just to clarify, I can post on other article sites just as long as the stuff I post is not the same as my hubs on HP? So I can cover the same subject just not copy and paste, is that what you mean?
This will also get you great backlinks from different site and lift up your articles on the searches. Don't wait just do it.. you are on the right track.
Thank you for the pointers its exactly what I wanted to know, its one thing writing a hub but getting it noticed is a hole different game so I appreciate the advice, at the risk of sounding cheeky any suggestions on other sites I can use? I love HP as the format is easy to use and allows you to add images, adds and vids!
You can write articles in many different places, they just have to be unique content. Although the articles belong to you, what you write on each site shoudl be unique.
But don't spread yourself too thin. Have a decent amount of article on one site before you start writing somewhere else.
Thanks CS I may just take your advice and stick with HP for now see what kinda feedback I get from my posts if its not great then not much point going elsewhere.
Good advice. I just started at Squiddoo and have a blog and two niche sites in progress on top of freelancing fulltime. I signed up for Bukisa and decided to focus on increasing my content on my current projects before starting another one. It takes time to learn the details of each platform.
Bodyandmind -- HubPages is a great place to learn, with many helpful people. You can follow your stats and view how your hubs perform. I came back after a long time away, and I'm making progress in gaining outside traffic.
HG thanks for sharing your views I appreciate it fella, kinda new to article writing in general so always keen to listen to what others who have ventured before me have to say.
I guess part of the battle is once the words are on the page you need to figure out how to get people to read them, not so easy if I do say so.
You're welcome. I feel like I'm starting from scratch. Quick tips: use the Google Adwords tool to find long-tail keywords. Keep your hubs on topic to your title. This can help with getting traffic from search engines. Lately I'm getting hits from Google, Bing and Yahoo right away.
I tweet all the hubs and run them through Pingler.com every time I update them. Recently I started adding my hub links in anchor text with summaries on Blogger. I sometimes leave a link in a comment on other sites -- if it's relevant. That's all I'm doing for promotion. My traffic is still small, but my outside traffic -- from sources other than HP -- has tripled in about a month. I don't do any artificial backlinking -- I don't think it's worth the risk.
On hubbing in general, check out hubs by Susana S and Sunforged -- there are many veterans with good hubs to get you started.
This one gave me some new ideas: http://barbara-kay.hubpages.com/hub/Unu … ee-Traffic
You might want to work on your spelling if you're going to be writing articles.
