What is the most over used subject on the web?

    What is the most over used subject on the web?

    What subject are you absolutely sick of seeing people write about here on

    There are tons of played out subjects - but which one, specifically, have you seen written about about ten dozen times too many?

    Hi Wes. I've been away for a couple of weeks, but, I do think they've talked out religion arguments a lot last month. Hope you're doing well.

    That's an interesting question.  Let me see - over the entire net it's get rich topics, work at home, SEO and SEO related topics, online marketing, dating.  In hubpages seo and seo related topics.  Many are almost duplicates of others.

    How to make money on the internet has to be number one. Of course everyone wants to know, but most are just repeating the same old stuff.

    Money making schemes. There are so many get rich articles and schemes around these days. Not just on HP, but everywhere you turn.

    I agree about the SEO, especially when the person who wrote a hub about driving traffic then asks a question in the forums about how to drive traffic to their hubs.

    Another one I ponder on occasionally is can there really be that many recipes in the world? Does Mama's chilli really differ that much from Granddad's chilli or Auntie Mary's chilli?

    When it comes to quality, although I love reading good travel hubs (and there are some brilliant ones on HP), this is also where I seem to flag most.  Spammers, spinners and copiers really love travel articles for some reason.

    Basically any of the high CPC niches. Fitness, internet marketing, insurance etc. Those topics have been written over again and again and again until the only original concepts are impossibly obscure.

    Not sure if there is such a thing on the internet.  If something is gaining the intended traffic how can I classify it as over used?

    it's all crazy weight loss ideas all the time. oh, yeah, the occasional "how to get abs" and other body building is in there, too.

    Although I tend to read a huge variety of topics, there are a select few I will skip over due to lack of any interest at all.  RECIPES/Food hubs are my least favorite of all (the exception would be a recipe written by a "favorite" hubber)  I've been COOKING and baking for nearly 50 years AND NOT BECAUSE I ENJOY COOKING!  Any concoction I haven't made, I don't want to.  Last week there were no less than 40 RECIPE hubs on my thread.
    This same concept would go for your general "raising KIDS" hub.  Between my husband and myself, we have 12 children (that's ONE dozen) 18 grandchildren and I have a 10 month old Great-grandchild.  WHAT would you like to know about raising children?  Just ask me.
    Far too many hubs on these 2 topics IMO. Thank you for asking, Wes.

    I would have to say weight loss schemes or make money quick schemes.  They are coming out of the woodwork.

    Recipes (I know, I write some myself.  I enjoy writing the occasional recipe.  What are you going to do about it?  Stop Reading?), and relationship advice. 

    The recipes i will read - if they are interesting and well written.  I skip the relationship advice, unless it is on how to pick up women.  Those have some funny pick up lines.  I like a good laugh.

    Honestly, there seem to be by far more writers than subjects, so I do not let an overworked subject stop me from writing about it.  Sometimes the rhythm of the words have more impact than the message.

    The subjects are the writings of spammers who write about their business with username of business  with links to their business.

    Green Tea immediately comes to mind. It's a great and healthy product but perhaps a bit too much coverage on the site and elsewhere.

    Personally I do not think there is overkill on any particular hub-so many topics so I don't think I will get sick of any.  The only ones I don't like are Obama Bashing ones.  And so far I have not seen many of these of HP
