    Do articles about "list's" and "Top Ten" ok on HubPages?

    I was thinking about doing a series of Hubs that are based around "lists" or "top ten" and was wondering if these are decent on Hubpages? I used to have a couple blogs and I remember they brought in ok traffic and used to be very popular with surfers. However I was not sure how popular they are with page views here on HubPages and now with this new Google Panda thing I just found out about, I'm wondering if I should still bother with the series?

    So long as you follow by their guidelines and make sure it's all good quality content, I should think that this would be a great idea for a new series of hubs! I'm looking forward to seeing them in the future!

    It's okay to have list-like hubs.  I have a collection of them called "Best Movies for a Rainy Day," in which I created hubs for each genre and linked them appropriately.  Make sure that you do not just post a list.  You should give a review or some kind of content (non-personal) as to why each selection is on your list.  My rainy-day movie lists have been making up for the traffic that I usually lose over the weekend.  I hope this helps!

    Thanks, I have a few ideas for the series so far. I try to aim for at least 600 words per post, usually ends up being more though. So depending on the topic I'll be giving my opinions, advice or some other kind of input. I also try to put a "questions for readers" section at the end of each of my articles to help increase comments. smile

    For example here is the first one in the series: … b-Browsers

    Its ok as reader always seek for a hub suggesting them with the reference of numbers like 5 ways or 10 ways etc. It will generate more traffic. But take your control on quality of the article.
