Would it be Possible to Combine Profiles?

    I wonder whether HP could make it possible for people to combine profiles into one? In the era of subdomains lots of people wrote under several profiles. I myself did this (a bit) because I thought topic-specific subdomains might be more successful.

    Now that the subdomains are gone it doesn't make sense for me to have several profiles on HP.

    The disadvantage is obvious - each subdomain needs to reach payout independently. Plus I need to relog if I want to work on a different subdomain. And be careful not to post on forums etc. if I'm not in my main profile.

    So.....it would be very nice if I had the option of bringing the other hubs into my main account, wonder if that option could be given to people?

    That is a very good question.  All that author stuff that we wasted time on and the advice to focus on core subject areas...

      Was that advice ever given by HubPages or was it just one of those myths that grew up amongst Hubbers?

      I am the first to tell people they MUST specialise on a standalone blog, but my experience on Hubpages always suggested it wasn't necessary. Anywayx if anyone had enough material on just one topic to make a subdomain worthwhile, I would've been telling them to start a blog.

        It was forum advice I think - the best sort.

        That's an interesting question, and I believe there was no official advice to concentrate a sub on a specific topic. I'd actually looked for it at the time when I was considering starting new subdomains and didn't find anything

        But......on one of Paul's hubs/blog posts/forum posts (and honestly I don't think I could find it now) it seemed to me that he did say that a focused subdomain seemed to be important. At least that's how I interpreted what he said, and I remember it struck me because there was no official advice. Ofc it's possible I misinterpreted it.

        I do wonder whether Paul et al didn't actually get advice that the subdomains might be hurting the site, rather than just being neutral. I don't know how much work it is to bring everything back to the main domain, but it must be some work, and nobody starts a project that they don't think will make a difference to the bottom line. This of course is just speculation......but speculation is fun!
