    Do you usually write hubs for Search Engines or HubPage Followers?

    When you write a hub, do you write it for the entertainment of your Hubpage followers or to get traffic from search engines like Google? In other words, do you write hubs focusing on keywords, SEO, etc. or do you write really engaging, funny, entertaining hubs that your followers will love to read?

    I write Hubs for my own amusement, and hopefully for the amusement/entertaiment of others. It doesn't matter to me if those "others" are fellow Hubbers or random Google searchers.

    So far (I’m pretty new) I do both. Some hubs I write because I think that my followers or fellow hubbers will enjoy them. Others I write using SEO in the hopes that I will gain some traffic in the future. Mostly I write what I enjoy and feel knowledgeable about.

    I do both. Sometimes I try to rank on the search engines just to see what I can do. Other times I just write for fun. I prefer the latter!

    I write to get traffic about topics I'm interested in. I can still create engaging, funny and entertaining hubs even if it is for the search engines.

    I write hubs solely to share my views in the hopes of educating those who may not research these issues on their own.

    I write hoping to get a large amount of traffic from search engines and I really enjoy it when my followers leave a comment on my hubs.  I am just writing to entertain myself because I love to write and see how well I do after writing an article.

    No, I write hubs just because there is something I want to write or expound on. I am always flattered though when it is read and gets positive comments. I'm not very good at being "search engine" savy or keyword smart.  I just write and hope for the best.

    I write about what I like, and I hope someone else will like it too. I rarely consider SEO at all when I'm writing. I do try to find the best keywords for the title, and include them in subtitles or the first paragraph. Hey if someone's looking for it, might as well make it easy to find right?

    It is good if we can write hubs for search engines. Better rank means more traffic.

    I usually write on topics which I am interested in. At the same time, I will check the keywords of my topics that are popular with the search engine. I will only use those keywords if they can fit naturally into my writing and certainly will not force any keyword in just to gain ranking from search engine.

    I write because ever since I stared on here, I have to. LOL. Now the first cup of my coffee in the morning is sipped while I'm on hub pages, I can't wait to see what's new. So is my 2nd and 3rd. I have ideas burning up my head that I have to get out, it is almost addicting, hahaha. I am having so much fun writing, I just write to write. If it has positive ripples for others, I am grateful for the chance to help. I have never googled my topics or key words, it really isn't that important to me. I wnat to make the world a better place, and one keystroke at a time seems like a fine way to do it. I also find it self healing and self soothing. It helps to write things out, it is a great way to untangle your mind. C.

    I write for myself, in the hopes that someone else will also find it interesting!

    I write for my (hopefully growing) audience, but I keep SEO in mind. I never sacrifice my point or entertainment value to get more traffic. I am here to do three things: 1) have fun 2) develope an audience 3) develope my skills as a writer.

    Money has little to do with it, but I am not about to turn it down if a check gets mailed to me.

    I write for my own fulfillment and for my followers' entertainment.  But then I don't make a lot of money.  I've tried writing for keywords, etc.  It lasted about a week.  Too limiting and boring for me.
