    What is the best approach to adding content to your hubs?

    I found it difficult to word this question, but would you recommend posting hubs about one subject or should you try and vary the types of topics you write about? Also, who would be some of the main benefits to uploading your content in the way you suggested?

    Hello redwards01. I like to vary my Hub subjects. So many of the other sites and clients I write for dictate what I write. I have to stick to their topics and specific requirements. Not fun, but it pays the bills. That's why I love HubPages so much. I can choose what I want to write about and have some fun with it.

    Here on HubPages, I basically write about things that interest me or are important to me on. While any good piece of writing requires a certain amount of research, sticking to subjects you're familiar with means spending less time researching and more time writing.

    Hope this helps! Happy Hubbing smile

    Hubpages seems to have two trains of thought when it comes to topics. Some people say pick a niche and stick with it. This plan has merits because if you like to write book reviews you'll get people who will keep coming back to read the reviews because they are interested in that. But if you suddenly write a hub about baby clothes or christmas trees they're going to be turned off and not come back.

    The second line of though is to write what you like, even if the subjects vary. This shows your readers that you have a wide range of interests and if they like your writing they will keep coming back to learn new things.

    It doesn't matter which path you choose you just have to write good content. Ask yourself "Will someone be interested in this?" "How many people will be interested in this?" "How many other people have written about this?"

    It's also best to write 3-4 hubs around a topic because that shows google you know what you're talking about and allows readers of that topic to jump from hub to hub and get useful information.

    I think each person will have his/her own preference, but I think that the advantage of HubPages (as opposed to a blog or specific website) is that you can write about a variety of topics, and see which ones seem to do better with traffic, etc.  I like being able to write about whatever I want without getting stuck into writing about the same old things over and over again.  It helps to get a new perspective now and then.  I am constantly surprised about which hubs draw interest and which ones don't.

    Having said that, it is probably helpful to show yourself as an authority on the subject.  This means that if you are going to write about a particular topic, you may want to write several hubs and link them together so your readers who read one hub can find the others.

      I agree with all of that. When I first came I hopped around with wild abandon. Which is fun, and got me writing. But if people like one hub you wrote, they may want more like that. If you want them to come back you need to give them what they want.
