Is it better to have a niche or to write about various unrelated topics?
Develop a niche. Niche articles are rated by search engines more highly than individual ones. The accumulation of good articles in a niche gives a strength rating that is applied to each article, with the assumption that the more articles you have in the niche, the more you know about the topic, and that someone finding one article will want to read the related ones.
I guess I'd say "have a niche" -- I tend to write mostly about "B" movies and heavy metal/hard rock music, because I'm a total nerd for both subjects and love sharing my thoughts on them with the world at large.
On the other hand, my most successful and most-viewed Hub happens to be one that has nothing to do with either of those subjects, so it doesn't hurt to go outside of your "comfort zone" every once in a while.
