As I read through the Hubpage tutorials they pointed out it is best to write articles that are "Evergreen."However MANY of the articles I read on Hubpages are simple commentary seemingly directed toward their Hubpage followers. I am beginning to think this is a strategy toward making money on Hubpages. That creating a list of followers is more important than creating a list of "Evergreen" articles. So far I am traveling the "Evergreen path." Creating virtual writing Real estate that will pop up on Google forever. Which path are you following and why?

Yea, some Hubpages having no discernible evergreen content have dozens, sometimes hundreds of comments. Maybe I'll weave in a few Hubpages "for sharing."
The whole writing for Google thing kinda irks me but it is what it is.
FatFreddyCat is right. You still have to write what you want (and know, I would add). I look at it this way. If I'm writing here, rather than a journal or blog, it's so interested parties will read it. SEO for google helps us get it to them.
LetitiaFT, If you wouldn't mind could you point me to an example of one of your Hubpages that was NOT written with Google in mind. Thanks
Hi again Mark. We're not supposed to post links to our own hubs here, but basically, 3 of my last four: hubber to hubber summer; one or two hub accounts; & hub challenge. Anything with hub in the title will be of interest to no one but fellow hub
Thanks appreciate it. And thanks for letting me know about the links rule in this answers area!
