Are there HubPages topics which are oversaturated (too crowded, repetition, few new perspectives)?
As someone who is relatively new to HubPages but not to writing, I am genuinely curious to hear advice (and opinions) about which topics are considered to be oversaturated and which subjects appear to be crying for more attention.
I really think recipes and crafts are over saturated. I think there needs to be more original content. Such as stories, biographies, etc.
That, aexbush, you'll have to find out for yourself. It depends on what you have to bring to the table. I am retired. I am a former features reporter, not-that-great editor, and a prison guard/correctional counselor from California. I chase anything that interests me, and when I write here, I am hoping to have readers that share my different passions. I am not one to "go with the flow," so I write what I want to write. For me, fiction and book reviews don't cut it when it comes to traffic. I will not do those. Write some Hubs, build up your portfolio, then study your HubPages account. You will be surprised what readers are drawn to. Would you believe my piece on organizing an underwear drawer tops everything I've done??? You don't know what will draw your readers until you actually start building that portfolio.
I think that the most useful topics - including health, crafts, weight loss - are oversaturated. I mean - they are ALL evergreen content (because people search for everyday projects and information), but writers tend to write about what others write usually from the same point of view. I try to create unique content. Nobody has ever heard of using two-part epoxy clay for crafts - only for DIY projects. So, I decided to write 2 hubs on it.

I'm speaking mainly on your HubPages account, but also any side (or main) blogs. Do you think it hurts or helps your Hubs to have a diverse group of articles or is it better if it's all about one thing?

I have been writing articles and flash fiction stories on HubPages but am unsure what topics are the most popular ones. Also, is it better to write in a specific niche or to try to write in a wide array of topics? Thank you

This has got to be some sort of joke. This site is not an easy place to make a fast buck. I knew that when I started. I then did the apprenticeship. It hasn't done me one iota of good. I have written well over 70 hubs, some of which were HOTD. My earnings in the last week are [redacted] ...

The focus of HP has turned to the niche sites. Editing services will only be used on hubs being considered for the several new niche domains for the foreseeable future. The niche topics chosen for the next year or so seem to be pets, tattoos, piercings, beauty, food, and beverage. If we don't write...

Is it better to write hubs all in one niche or write about different things?So far, I have 13 Hubs published. I have been jumping around on topics, writing about what I am inspired to do some research on that day. I do have several focused on drug addiction, though. I wonder, is it better to write...
