Niche Writing On Hubpages

    You probably know me better under my main Hubpages account name Jimmythejock but a couple of months ago I created this account to write on a niche of similar topics as an experiment to see how it would compare to my main account which is more of a mish mash of topics.
    I now have 7 Hubs in this new account and for the first time yesterday I actually earned more from it than I did for my main account which has 342 featured Hubs in it.
    I won't publish the actual figures but I am sure that any member of the Hubpages staff will confirn my higher earnings on my new account if asked.
    Maybe it is because of the stricter standards that Hubpages have imposed on the site, maybe it is because I am now writing on a niche of similar topics or maybe it is simply because of pure luck and I have just managed to write on the right topic at the right time.
    whatever the reason, my new account has given me hope that there is a future here at Hubpages and it is worth sticking it out until things settle down with Google Panda.
    Niche writing seems for now to be the way forward for anyone who wants to find success at Hubpages and the new standards set by Hubpages for quality may just be part of that key to success.
    Thanks for reading, I hope this is just the start of something big.....jimmy

      James, thanks for sharing this information. I have 7 hubs out of 50 featured hubs about coffee. On my blog, 13 of my 58 posts are about coffee. I am considering moving these 20 about coffee together to make a niche blog. Does anyone see a downside to doing this?

    Thanks James, I find your post very encouraging. I'm fairly new to HubPages, but I love the standard set for writing hubs. I focus on issues related to mental health, and I try to write well researched, informative, and helpful hubs.

    My page views are increasing, and I really think I will build good readership over time. I think Hubapages, is a good place to write, and my hope is that the site be further strengthened as we move forward.

    Thanks for this post, James. It is very hopeful. I have about four areas most of my hubs fall under but I'm still leery about having just one subject. I like the diversity of my interests and my hubs. But I'm glad to hear that this route has a lot of potential and is working splendidly for you. I wish you continued success.

    It's great to read some good news about earnings.  Watching what's going on with up and down traffic, I'm led to believe that Panda is rewarding fresh, unique material.  Your hubs look informative and helpful.  It looks like you found a very rewarding niche.  Congrats Jimmy.
