writing a Hub about an already written about topic

    I'm new to Hubpages. I'm interested in writing about Hampi, a place I visited in India. Based on the search function at the top of this page, there are two Hubs already written about Hampi, both from 4 years ago. Is it still a good idea to write about Hampi given that there are already two Hubs about it? Also, does the fact that these two Hubs are old have any bearing on whether it is a good or bad idea to write about Hampi now? Thanks!

    It is perfectly fine to write about the same topic, just don't copy other content.

    While it is totally fine to write about something that has already been covered, the best Hubbing opportunities emerge when one finds a subject (or an aspect of a subject- e.g. best restaurants in Hampi, or the history of Hampi) that has not been adequately covered yet or is not covered at all. big_smile

    It's a good idea to write about the same topic, provided you present it from another point-of-view. Maybe the other two hubs are more informative in nature. In that case, why not write your hub from a first-person perspective (e.g. a tourist diary) since you have personally visited the place.

    While the two hubs may be written before you, if you do the proper search optimization, then you'll have no problems ranking well.

    As you are a hubber then you are free to write any type of hub you want whether it is already written for 3 times or more than three times but you just have to make your hub more unique and more updated and you also have the advantage of taking idea form the previous hubs and create big hub then the previous one and also interesting by adding more videos and more pictures. smile
