    We all know hubs get around 40 million views a month. But which category of hubs get the lion share ?

      Hmm... I don't mean to dodge the question, but I think if anyone knew definitively they wouldn't say here. Why show the location of buried treasure?

      I'm pretty new, but I've noticed that some controversial topics get a lot of views (at least it's my experience that they get ranked pretty high in search order and often have several comments / reader interaction), but many seem "tired", ranty, and don't always represent good writing quality.

      The real answer might be something totally random that fluctuates as search trends come and go. No telling what the internet will decide it loves.

      No one is going to tell you that (if they do, they're stupid).

      We earn money by attracting visitors from Google, Bing and Yahoo.  It's hard work, working out what subjects will attract most readers - and if I write a Hub that succeeds, why would I tell you?  You'll only write a Hub that's going to compete with me for the same readers.

      As TwerkZerker says, controversial subjects will get you visits and comments from other Hubbers, but that doesn't mean they will earn money, because you need external traffic to do that.

      It is hard to answer that. I think it depends more on the quality of content and photos that enhance the hub rather than the type or subject.

      I have written several on true crime that get a a ton of hits. Yesterday my Betty Broderick hub brought in over 2,000 hits. I believe that popular true crime stories are shown on documentaries and movies have been made about them, and when they are shown on tv my hits go through the roof.

    It seems to be, that very mundane subjects that get most interest.  Things that most people can relate to, in their everyday lives.

      You make a very good point, sir! I'm pretty sure that for a while, two of the "hottest searches" on Google were really ordinary things--like how to cut up a pineapple and how to tie a tie. Just typical, practical things.

    It seems that recipes get the most views, IMO. So many readers are looking for something different to cook, everyday.

    You write best about things that you are passionate about--especially if you are able to bring some special knowledge and experience to your subject. If I knew anything about the subject, I would write a hub on "How to Build a Four-Wheeler." And I think many people would like to know how to change their spark plugs. But you can only do what you can do.

    Chances are, if you are passionate about something, other people are too.Write about what you love, research it thoroughly, and give it all you've got.

    According to the Hubpages help centre, you should focus on writing hubs on topics people would search on Google.

    "How to" articles are in general very popular as well as articles on health & fitness and cooking recipes.

    I would think there are many variable  factors, different people like different things. Recipes seem to do well, "how to..." Hubs appear to do well. As for the best, your guess is as good as mine
