When I got started with Hubpages, I picked up on the general theme of having different accounts for different topics. Boy was that a bad idea!
So, how can I merge my Hubpages accounts in to one master account?
We are talking on the way to 300 pages so any help with this would be greatly received.
You can't merge them. You could delete the different hubs and republish them on one single account, but you would lose all the comments, stats, etc. from the original hubs.
why not do them in subjects.
Group all your animal ones for instance (if you have any)
and call it your (your Name) hubpages on animals
then put links in there to match
I have done that with my genealogy and my christmas ones.
It would be best to keep them as they are for established search engine seo purposes and plus having a few accounts that you can cross promote different hubpages will be better for you in the long run, even though it takes a lot of work to manage them, although I do agree, there should be a way, maybe in the future to export hubpages between accounts or something taking all the stats and comments with them also!
Hubpages would never do this. That would allow shuffling and sharing. This could lead to people merging to overall get more traffic and thus the articles under a name aren't the users original. It would also open up doors for "selling" hubs off that preform well or fit a niche.
What would happen if the top writers who have 300+ hubs all combine to forum a powerhouse of seo premise, many subcategories with hubs for each, and them stealing most traffic from everyone else? Why, it would be like there a website themselves all in one account.
Thanks for the feed back.
Given how hard it will be to merge the Hubs, I am thinking of un-publishing the Hubs, improving the already fab content and republishing to Squidoo.
I hear that Squidoo coverts more Search Engine love that Hubpages.
No. Squidoo gets less traffic then Hubpages now, and it gets less revenue because you must share it 50/50. At hubpages you get 100% of the 60% impressions here.
A good example:
A Hub on Football gets 1 click valued for $2.67. This click was in the hubbers impression so 2.67 was added to your adsense account.
A Lens (squidoo) on football gets 1 click valued for $2.67. Squidoo doesn't let you put your own adsense, it pays you 50% in paypal when you reach a threshold.
2.67 / 2 = $1.33 (saying they do what they say and you trust them. there is no real way of telling)
Which would you rather have?
Squidoo doesn't split Adsense 50/50. They split Amazon, and Ebay, but not Adsense.
What they do with Adsense is they take all the revenue. They keep 50% and the other 50% is put into a co-op pool. Then they divide that amongst Lensrank tiers.
This is an estimation: Tier 1 (top 2000 lenses according to "payrank") get about $10 per lens. Tier 2 (the next 8,000 lenses) get about $2 per lens. Tier 3 (the next 60,000?) get about 8 cents per lens.
You could have a lens that makes $10 in Adsense PER DAY but if it's in Tier 2, you'll only get $2 for that lens for the WHOLE MONTH.
It could also mean that you have a lens that for whatever reason makes zero revenue for the entire month, if it's in Tier 1 it will get the Tier 1 payout for the month.
There is no guarantee that a well trafficked lens will rank highly either. Active participation in the community will be a far more likely cause for the success of a lens.
So I believe, if a person has content that should do well with Adsense revenue, HubPages is the place to publish it.
My experience is that Squidoo is terrible for traffic and conversions. My average traffic/ revenue per hub/ lens is many times higher on Hubpages. It could be better with some external link building on Squidoo, but I like the way that you get better rankings on Hubpages without driving a ton of external links to it.
Good point and the interface at Squidoo is a disaster.
Guess I'm stuck here slogging it out.
Just need to get my head around how Hubscores works.
With the my next 20 Hubs I'll go over 300 Hubs.
I am not a great writer and write in much the same style, yet my Hubscores range from 51 to 85 and swing around by 5 to 7 points a day.
Maybe I need to become one spend more time making friends...
All advise and comments welcome
A swing of 5 to 7 points is normal - mine varies much more than that sometimes.
Are all your Hubs original? by that I mean, published here on HubPages, not copies of articles anywhere else, even if they're your own material. Hubs that appear elsewhere on the web are severely penalised in HubScore.
Why not post a link to a couple of your low-scoring Hubs on Extreme Hub Makeover and ask for feedback.
I also make lots of changes to my Hubs, differant links, photos videos.
Do I get punished for this by the great faceless beast that is Hubpages?

I was invited to be moved on new subdomain in response to my interest in the blog. I have no clue what will happen. Whatever, how are you people choosing your new name?

Curious if it is worth your time, I ran across info on it and didn't know if we could benefit from it.
