Multiple Hubpages Accounts

    RS Junkieposted 8 years ago

    Well I would like to have two seperate Hubpages Accounts on hubpages. One would be specific to a topic and a second would be about different stuff. I was wondering if this is aloud, and also if you can link both accounts to the same google adsense if you just type that same code into both affiliate setting boxes.

      You can have "separate" accounts. It's not aloud-- (we can't hear it)-- but it is allowed.  I believe you can use the same code. The question has been asked many times-- you could check the search box-- or the FAQ's.

      What happens if you post the same hub to multiple accounts?  It is considered duplicate content?

        If content is duplicated, then it is duplicate content and will be flagged as such, surely.  smile

          that was my first thought as well but I cannot tell if you are able to link the accounts...Nonetheless I am probably giving too much thought to it smile

        There'd be no benefit in doing so.

      You can have more than one account.

      Make the effort though to add a profile picture and also an interesting bio, even if it is only a few paragraphs long.

    You absolutely can have more than one account and you can use the same adsense for each one.  I personally have 4 accounts.  One is the one Im writing from right now, then i have 2 dedicated to certain niches and another with a bunch of similiar niches.

            there is no risk on having multiple hubpages accounts with the same Adsense Account. its the same thing if you have multiple niches with only one Adsense account.

    You can have more than one account, but we ask that you limit yourself to one persona in the forums.  If we see you posting on multiple accounts in the forums (especially in the same thread), one or more of your accounts may be blocked from posting in the forums thereafter.

      in all circumstances? I was thinking of having another account to create hubs of a different nature, and also to be able to chat in the religion forum as I live in a small gossipy town. But I have also started getting to know people under my own name and don’t want to lose that. I’m not looking to spam, just a little privacy.

      i should get HP to block my niche account. Every Sunday I log into each account in turn to collect all my stats, and I always forget to log out of the last accout I checked and switch back to Greekgeek. So my next forum post is usually from the wrong account!

      (I have 2 HP accounts; I set a niche account as an seo experiment to study how quickly a newbie could get traffic via on-page factors alone WITHOUT a 6-year-old account, online reputation and social media providing a boost.)

    As long as you don't talk to yourself and don't support your own point on forums, I think you should be fine smile

    Why do you need more than one account?

      because of this:

      “You become hypersensitive to the pecking order and to your sense of social status,” Lanier said of these virtual clans. “There is almost always the designated loser in your own group and the designated external enemy. There is the enemy below and the enemy afar. There become two classes of disenfranchised people. You enter into a constant obligation to defend your status which is always being contested. It is time-consuming to become a member of one of these things. I see a lot of designs on line that bring this out. There is a recognizable sequence, whether it is pianos, poodles or jihad; you see people forming into these clans. It is playing with fire. There are plenty of examples of evil in human history that did not involve this effect, such as Jack the Ripper, who worked alone. But most of the really bad examples of human behavior in history involve invoking this clan dynamic. No particular sort of person is immune to it. Geeks are no more immune to it than Germans or Russians or Japanese or Mongolians. It is part of our nature. It can be woken up without any leadership structure or politics. It happens. It is part of us. There is a switch inside of us waiting to be turned. And people can learn to manipulate the switch in others.”

      which is an excerpt from this:

      Karina, the main reason is that you want to write about totally different topics.

      Personally, I write about a whole range of topics under one account, and can't really see a great benefit in splitting them.  However, I know some respected Hubbers who do divide their work over several accounts.  They may have one for frivolous Hubs and one for their serious money-making endeavours.  Or freelancers might have one for controversial stuff and one for their  professional portfolio.  I recall Nelle set up a separate account for experiments so she's not bothered by "helpful" advice!

    I enjoy having 3 accounts here at HubPages.  Strictly for my own creative license, if you will.

    I do enjoy being unknown, yet with a good length of time, do not enter the forums and am slowly using them to explore other avenues of writing.

    I do enjoy the privacy and calmness I find and it allows me to push a bit harder, take bigger risks because i somehow feel i have less to loose.

    not sure if that made sense but that's what I do.

      It is interesting to see that most people who were interested in this topic had their account banned.
