Writing hubs : Content doesn't always generate maximum traffic ??

    I have seen this that hubs on photo galleries of actresses, 'hot' photos etc etc. get more traffic than those with content. I am not talking about my hubs but in general. I mean, isn't this the easier way, yeah i know the debate of being a writer but then again, you work and you see,  just copy pasting gives people  visitors .......................

    Yes, I have noticed that too. I have some of my own with a lot of content and well written text, if I say so myself, but poor traffic. It is partly why I just tried an experiment with a 'sexy' hub and it has got the best traffic ever and quickly!

    However, posting hubs about sex and 'hot' actresses and models etc doesn't mean the quality of the writing has to suffer. It is possible to be a very successful and skilled writer and paid well writing on such material. I have a woman journalist friend who has done much better than I have in terms of publications she has written for and in financial terms and she once described what she was doing as "writing about the women who get their tits out." My friend was a regular writer then for the Sport newspaper. There are successful published authors writing in these fields too.

      But does that mean I should keep on writing what I want to write about and also publish some sexy hubs side by side to generate traffic tongue Or will that eventually happen to all of my hubs as and when I get recognized for my writing skills ???

        What's your aim - to make money? I believe the sexy acctress hubs usually get 1c clicks - and most people don't click! You need to write relevant hubs - relevant to searchers who are looking for an answer to their problem.  Unfortunately google won't pay you for fine prose - its no critic!

    Sex sells and so does gossip.  People eat that stuff up.  Sometimes you have to keep that in mind and be a little creative to get your message out and voice heard.

    Photo galleries of actresses tend to get lots of lookers, but some of the least meaningful traffic.  Lissie is right, they don't earn much at all.
