    Hello hubbers, i am back to hubpages and planning to write hubs again in here. Please help me with the doubts i have. I have just gone through the alexa ranking for HP - Global Rank is 6109 (dropped 2552). Am worried, should i start writing here or is it good to write new articles in a blog (A new blog - everything new). I wont be doing any SEO or promotion/ sharing - in that case hubpages is good for me or a new blog is good? Please suggest. Or are there any alternatives to hubpages to make some good revenue?

      I checked your profile and see that you have 77 hubs that apparently have been featured. Have any of them been moved to the niche sites?  If not, the first thing I would do is go back into each hub and update everything from grammar to images.  Like Marisa said, the money is in the niche sites!

    Welcome back. 

    I would advise against starting a blog unless you have an area of expertise which you can write on, and which is in demand.  These days, a blog must specialise in a specific subject or it's virtually guaranteed to fail.

    Don't worry about the ranking of  It's not important.  HubPages has changed.   The main site is really just a base where we publish our Hubs.  Once published, each Hub is assessed to see whether it's suitable to be moved to one of the vertical sites (we usually call them "niche sites").   Each of those sites is dedicated to a specific subject area.   

    If you are going to come back, then your goal must be to write Hubs which are good enough to be accepted for those sites. They are where the money is. 

    If a Hub is judged not good enough to be moved to one of the niche sites, it will be left on, but it has much less chance of earning good money in that case.  However, you can try revising and improving the Hub and subsequently resubmitting it for consideration.

    I have a Hub on the Basic Rules, which I suggest you read.   The rules have changed while you've been away, and your Hubs must adhere to the new rules in order to be accepted for the niche sites.

    Hello dialogue, I'm in a similar position. I like Kenneth's response.

    You know, we can get caught up in scores and rankings, but what's important is that you are writing from the heart and being true to yourself. We always attract persons of like interests; there are thousands of potential readers for every writer.

    Follow your instincts. Blessings!
