Should I Put a Company Blog on HubPages?

    I do not intend to be spammy or overly promotional. The point of the blog would be to provide value to the readers - clients my company would like to attract. It would be trying to drive traffic to a company website. The reason is, I've been hired to do a company blog but we're not sure yet what platforms we want to go with. I think I would like to use HubPages because I've been doing my own personal blog on here for 7 years - so I'm more familiar with the tools and SEO rules of HP than any other site. I don't want to have to learn a new site. But I'm scared that HP might have an over-zealous bot that will ban me for a slight hint of commercialism - even if that commercialism is not spammy and follows best inbound marketing practices. Has anyone else done a company blog via HubPages?

      Advertising an outside site or service (such as a company or website) is not permitted on HubPages.

        Thank you for your response. We will likely choose another platform.

          In any case, HubPages is not a blogging platform. It's for writing fully-formed, magazine-style articles.

      As Raggededge says, HubPages is not a blogging platform, and therefore it would be completely unsuitable for your purpose.

      The reason HubPages is not a blogging platform is that, although you can see all your articles together in one place (on your profile), no one else sees them like that.  To the general public, and to the search engines, your articles are  all mixed up with other people's articles.    It's very rare for anyone (except other Hubbers) to visit your profile, and there's no facility for outsiders to follow you (followers are just other writers, not readers). So it's impossible to build readership and you can never know who your readers are.

      If your company knows what it's doing, it would not be happy with those limitations. 

      However, I'm concerned that your company may not know what it's doing anyway.   It makes no sense to create a separate company blog to drive traffic to its website.   They need a blog integrated with its website.   PM me if you want more help with that.

    Hubpages doesn't want you to drive traffic to your own website or FB page. I've actually stopped putting new articles on Hubpages for this reason.

    Also you need a company blog to show exactly the material you want, immediately.  Just use a standard platform like blogger or wordpress and your own domain (free urls are a cheap look for a company).
