There's been an influx of hubs related to or mentioning the recent developments with Charlie Sheen.
Come on. Half of you are saying you hate the guy, another half of you are basically just rewording stuff that's all ready been said about him.
I freely admit that I'm doing the exact same thing in some of my hubs. And why is that?
Because Hubpages is search engine based and I know that there's a fifty/fifty chance that my hub traffic is going to increase if I mention a guy whose name is high in the search engines.
Am I criticizing anyone for it? No, course not. Because again, I'm doing the same thing. And unlike half the people in Japan, I have no problem financially exploiting a guy who is all ready in the public spotlight.
as you wish, you still could be making money off of the CS wave - but it wouldnt be by "attracting traffic" to a hub, or at least that is the least of it . Unoriginal wasnt intended as denigration, it was a push to try and put your spin on the obvious.
as for Bieber
He had 1300 views within the first 24 hours I posted him, 600-1000 views for the next week, and a good month of of over 300 views daily.
And they were all buyers, who contributed to several weeks of 4 figure earnings from ebay alone.
In two days, Bieber will be unpublished as the algo has killed his partnership with me and stronger competitors have taken over that vertical. I can live with 10kish views from commercial buyers in a month. A "charlie sheen" hub needs some ingenuity to find a commercial aspect
Yeah. If the hub was entirely about Charlie Sheen you'd be correct. However a casual mention of the guy in a hub with it's own topic is just that. A casual mention...that justifies the use of his name in the search engine.
The hub doesn't even have to be about the guy, just so long as there's mention of him. See where I'm going with this?
Well see that's where subtelty and reserve come in handy. You don't have to make the entire hub about Charlie Sheen. Just throw in a mention to him, Two and a Half Men, Angus Jones, or any thing that would surface in reference to the Sheenster.
Heck, you could be really subtle and make an Emilio Estevez reference, since I'm sure his name will come up now.
Anyone following my hubs lately is probably aware that I really don't like Charlie Sheen. I'll spare you a lecture but to sum up, I think the man is a tasteless, misogynist, violent maggot and while I'm not surprised...
