    It depends on what you are looking to do. For example I like to sell electronics so I write alot about cameras and stuff like that. I also like to talk about health issues like acne and hair loss.

    Pick topics that you know you can write alot about and comment on alot of peoples pages

    They both work, but the success depends upon how well they are written or designed by the author (hubber), and if the niche is well received. For instance, travel articles work well if the place is well-travelled, or their is a broad interest.  Evergreen stuff works well too, but in my experience it takes a little longer for them to launch. Other hubbers may have a different take.

    For me personally it is evergreen content. My traffic is from 100 percent referrals. It took 2 months for referring sites to find my 1 article that is unpublished on hubpages. On the third month September 11, 2010 A.D. I began to get page impressions. On December 28, 2010 A.D. I earned my first 1 cent. On January 7, 2011 A.D. I reached my 1000 ever views. On January 19, 2011 A.D. I now have 1085 ever views. It is a total success with out me doing anything else than writing it and setting it free on the internet and it was found by 100 percent referring sites on August 2010 A.D. and I started on hubpages on June 3, 2010 A.D. Also on June 6, 2010 A.D. I got an Creative Commons non commercial no derivative license for my 1 article. I am in no hurry and am just kicking back and watching my 1 unpublished hub go around the world to countries of United States, Canada, Germany, Spain, Australia, Japan, Brazil. Some cities are New York City, New York; San Francisco, Ca.; Pelato, Brazil.

    Hubs about politics are here today; and useless two weeks later.  That doesn't stop me from writing about politics though.  What I know for certain is that if I want to do something that will make money, then I should write about products, or how to solve problems, those are the things that have proven to be "timeless" and provide me with steady search engine traffic, and that is what you want if you want to make money on hubpages.

    If you just like talking about political things, or current events, that's fine too, do what you want to do, but do it well.

    For me it's seasonally topical and (for the main and most part) evergreen content. The former is also known as deciduous content because it's like a maple tree. It loses its leaves (traffic in the fall, stagnates in the winter, and grows new ones in the spring. My Halloween ones get visits in Aug-Sept. peaks in Oct., and falls for the rest of the year until the Aug-Sept of the next.

    Evergreen content is prosperous in traffic at least weekly indefinitely. Topics that work in the field are church service etiquette (such as dress) and my recent Hub on exercise motivation. So that works well for me on HP!
