So I am fairly new here I have a couple accounts on the hub an on a few different platforms for different niche topics. On this account I hit over 25k views in just under my first 2 weeks and that number continues to go up with each new publication. I have also had readers migrate over to my other accounts to read more of my work. This particular account is about one particular game rather than gaming overall, I write on another platform about a broad spectrum of things in the gaming community and I was considering adding more work on the broader spectrum here under this name on the hub but I am not sure if that will help or hurt the following I currently have as it shot up from zero in record time.
So my question is for experienced hubbers, have you started on a very narrow path for your writing and after seeing great results covered more topics in the same niche? Has it helped or hurt your overall following?
I know that regardless of what the niche is, there will always be people that follow for specific reasons and I am not sure if I should keep the path I am on with this particular account or try to merge a few other gaming fandoms in with it. I have no issues writing across multiple sites and accounts but I feel if I can merge a few into a broad niche category it may help me to keep things in better order and not appear less active on some of them since I am pretty much always writing. For example, I haven't published a new article on this account in a few weeks however I have actually published around 30 articles in that time.
Honestly I would love to have just a few accounts in my niche categories to focus on rather than 20 separate accounts and platforms for different topics on many things. I know it would take time and I could irritate a few fans, but I think it would be very productive and more stable in the long run. I want to start this with my gaming and autism work which are the biggest and then move on to others.
What do you think?
I recognised your photo and recall you writing about autism under the pen name 'Blogging Momma.'
I'm pretty sure that, while multiple accounts are permitted on Hubpages, you are not allowed to post under multiple personas in the forums. Best be careful of this and stick to one account for posting here.
You are absolutely correct. I asked about this when I started my second account and was clearly told by the team NOT to use the forums under second account pen names. Doing this can get you banned from the site.
Is there a way to delete this or the other comments since it's rather use this one? I don't want to get banned.
No way to delete as far as I know. I suggest you only use the first site you signed up for and then drop a note to the team to advise them you weren't aware of the guidelines and promise not to post again in an other site you set up.
Your first site would be considered the main one and would also be the one where you have your original and probably your most numerous posts.
It's really important for newbies to read the learning center info before acting because to do otherwise can definitely get you banned.
I nice note to the team will probably help you to avoid problems,but don't keep doing this or you'll create problems for yourself.
How do you get so much traffic. What social media do you use. I write on a variety of topics and it took awhile to get a lot of views here. Well done. I started in a more narrow track and decided to write about a variety of topics instead.
I've been here for six years, and in my experience, people who write in a specific niche do better than those of us who write on myriad topics. I don't have the attention span to concentrate on one thing, and I know it hurts my views. Oh well . . .
Kathleen, I've been here nine years and I have not found that to be true. Especially now we have the niche sites, specialisation has few benefits.
To be fair, this particular account writes about popular topics for a single mobile game and are shared in groupies, chats and forums pertaining to that game and shared amongst the players quickly. Regular social media sharing is only a small fraction of my traffic. I have other accounts that i write under and social media and shares are my traffic sources some do very well but didn't kick off from day one. I think either can be very successful, from what i have heard and my own experience on many platforms.

This has got to be some sort of joke. This site is not an easy place to make a fast buck. I knew that when I started. I then did the apprenticeship. It hasn't done me one iota of good. I have written well over 70 hubs,...
