It's not against the TOS right? This is gonna be interesting..... Let's see the statistics....
Check the part written permitted use in the TOS. It says that "HubPages, in its sole discretion and at any time, may change, remove, reclaim, and/or reassign the screen name/username and/or subdomain name associated with Your Author account (this potentially includes but is not limited to a trademark owner complaining about a screen name/username/subdomain name that does not closely resemble Your real name)." The TOS also says that "You may not transfer or assign Your HubPages Earnings Program account to any other person and/or entity." Hope that is helpful.
It is not against the TOS to have more than one HP account. You can have more than one if you have a few niches for example and want to focus one account on each niche.
What you can't do is sign up with multiple accounts to spam the forums, etc. You need to stick to one identity there, but yes, for writing hubs you can indeed have more than one account.
Keep in mind, you'll have to reach minimum payout on each account though to get paid. If you are only writing on a couple of niche topics, it may be best to just stick to one ID in my opinion. Of course, I don't consider myself an expert in that regard at all - so do your research first.
I personally stick to one account.
There is no specific rule against having multiple accounts as some people have mentioned.
In addition to the sock puppet issue, another problematic situation is having multiple promotional accounts and if one gets banned, then they can all be banned.
I have only one account so far and I think that is enough to express yourself.
I think it would do you more harm than good. Better to have a single account and reap optimal benefits.
It's perfectly fine to have more than one account, as long as you are doing it within TOS to do so. I have two accounts, though I don't think I have been on the other one in about two years. I have only written a few hubs on that one, and kind of started it as an experiment. Maybe I should check that one...
I have danced with the idea, but never taken it on a date. So to speak.
I have one and that's the end of my interesting input to this thread. You're welcome.
I only have 1, but I have been seriously thinking about starting different niche accounts. I think I might do better at Google.
I have two accounts. My main one gets no traffic and the other one gets slightly less.
I have one - I think if I had more than one I would never reach a payout on any of them.

It seems some of the persons here have multiple accounts with different names. What is the motto behind this?

Sorry for the inconvenience- but that's what I just saw. HubPages staff, Jason Menayan, who runs another account called 'livelonger', just posted here in the link below, to save the Hubs from sinking??? Hah!I quote forum rules- "Multiple Accounts: While we don't prohibit having more than one...

I've always wondered why some Hubbers have more than one account. Is this a good thing or not? The only thing I can think of is that after a person writes many Hubs, it becomes a chore to take care of that one account.

I was just wondering because I'm beginning to have trouble keeping track of all of my hubs and it will just get worse.

There are three people in my house who use Hubpages -- three independent people. Two of us have multiple accounts (though I have the most). How is authorship determined? Is it by IP address or by Paypal address? I'm asking because of the contest that's currently going on. I don't think my most...
