Two HP Accounts

    If I set up a second HP account, do I need a second PayPal account?  I know I need a second email address for HP and can use my existing AdSense code. (At least I understand I can.) Thanks for your help.

      You can use the same Paypal for 2 HubPages accounts.  I'm not sure why you would need 2 though since everything is published on the main Hubpages.com domain.

        Two very different topics for the Hubs. Thanks for your response.

          You're welcome. You do understand that you will have to reach the $50 threshold in each account to get a payout, right?

          It is completely up to you, but I am not sure that having different topics in one account make a big difference anymore, if they ever did.  I write about a variety of topics on my account.

            I see your point. I'll have to think further about the idea. Cheers

              When we had our own sub-domains there was some point in specialising.   Google used to regard our sub-domains as separate websites, and it's well known that to be successful, a website needs to specialise.

              Now that we don't have sub-domains, our accounts are really just an administrative convenience for us.  Virtually the only people who see our profiles are other members of HubPages - who are writers, not readers.   Ninety per cent of readers arrive from a search engine direct to one of your Hubs, read the Hub and then IF they stay on HubPages at all, they are far more likely to click on one of the "related Hubs" than to visit your profile.

              So I would agree with Millionaire Tips that separating your Hubs on separate profiles is unnecessary and will just make it harder to achieve payout for no real benefit.

    Thank you, Marisa, for your input. You and Millionaire Tips have tipped the scales for me. I'll stay with one account. It is the logical choice.
