    Has a Blog a bigger chance of being seen, i.e. attracts more traffic than a HubPage?

    In what way can a Blog help a HubPage traffic-wise?  Does one need a Blog to direct traffic to his hubpages?  That's 3 questions in one smile

    Ok, I'll do my best to answer your questions! A hubpage will get ranked a lot quicker than a blog. This is because hubpages has a google pagerank of 6, a new blog will have no pagerank at all. So a hub is more likley to be seen quickly than a blog.

    That said a blog can be a good addition to your online marketing strategy though not essential. It will take a good while and lots of work to get regular readers. You'll need to post to your blog at least 2/3 times a week and make sure each blog post is optimized for your keyphrases.

    My best advice would be to learn about optimizing your hubs to make them search engine friendly. I have a hub showing the step by step process of how to do it if you want to have a look.

    A blog has as much of a chance at attracting traffic as a hubpage does. What Susana says is true though: when you make a hub, you're making a page on a well established site. This can help in driving Google traffic.

    On the other hand, if you make a blog, and link it to your hubs, the hubs are likely to do even better. It's also the other way around: link from on topic hubs to your blog and the blog is likely to do better.

    Either way: you'll need to know about keyword optimization to get traffic in the first place. I too have made a hub about that wink

    The advantage of making a blog about a niche you know can drive traffic and sales is that you can use affiliate links other than Ebay and Amazon and that you don't need to share the revenue. But it's a good idea to wait with investing in building a blog like that till you've found that niche.

    Sites like hubpages and squidoo are perfect for such attempts. And each hub or lens you make will help the rest thrive, if you do your interlinking well.

    It is true that with hubpages you have better chances to gain traffic from search engines. Hubpages is functioning like fusion of blog, forum and social media site. These are great advantages.
    On the other hand having your own blog means you have more power to leverage your traffic. You can put subscriber form on your own blog promoting your own product like offering free ebook, video, software, course, coaching sessions etc. In that way you can collect email addresses from visitors of your blog.
    But for now stick to your hubpages and promote it and when you gain some traffic and make money from that you can consider to further develop your online business and start your own blog.
