Do poetry hubs do well?
I have written poetry since I was about 5 years old. I haven't put up any poetry hubs yet though... I'm always writing on my other topics. So I was wondering if poetry hubs are popular or not? In my notebook at home is just fine with me if I'm going to be the only one reading them But if there is a large audience for poetry, then I might feel like sharing a few.
The marketing of Poetry hubs it totally different then that of a normal, "How-To" Hub for example. Viewership of poetry hubs is dependent on people reading your poetry, enjoying it, and then sharing it with others. Although this somewhat applies to normal Hubs, regular Hubs usually gain most of their views by ranking well in search engines like Google because they have dense, quality, content that a search engine can pick up on (Search engines have a rough time dealing with creative writing such as poetry). If you want to market your poetry, my recommendation is to spread your writings throughout social networks like Facebook, Twitter, etc. so people can share the creative things you have written.
Hope this Helps! Cheers
My poetry hubs are doing very well I would love to read some of your poetry!
Mine did really well for the first week or so but over time have kinda faded into the darkness of my hub index.
Good question. I love poetry, too. That's why I continue to do poetry hubs even though they are not doing as well. I'm not getting as many comments either. Ive done the social media and it does help. I also add text with some poetry to hold reader interest on the topic. And some, Ive put in a different category besides poetry and poems.
I love poetry, writing and reading it. My poetry hubs do well at first, then fade just as Lorddraven2000 mentioned. But I still post it, as I enjoy writing it so much, it is fun to have an outlet for it. It isn't about money for me.
No, no... my poetry isn't about "the money" either. It would be just for the sake of sharing it with others who enjoy it. I just didn't know if there were many who did anymore Thanks!
I look forward to reading your woek Mom Kat! I love poetry.
I enjoy the heartfelt responces from poetry,depending on what subject you write about.
You can test the waters with some of your poetry on HubPages. I have written poetry for years and never displayed them. I later joined several writing sites like HubPages and braved them there one at a time. Once you feel confident in your writing and want to publish to a wider audience, poetry hubs might work for you, and later you can think about assembling them in your very own poetry book down the road. The main thing is to enjoy your writing and sharing poetry to those who want to read it.

The question of whether poetry Hubs should have 400-word minimums came up in this thread a few minutes ago:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/70203#post1528809I've been puzzling about what to do with poetry Hubs I've found while hopping. I haven't flagged any of them, because poetry is a unique...

One of my friends who is a poet had created a Hub Pages account in hopes to share her poetry with others. She published a number of poetry hubs that included her poetry and appropriate images but they became unpublished with warning messages. I don't remember what they were exactly but I do...

Why do poems even though well written have a low hub score?Poems are not really lengthy and most poems carry less than 1250 words. Why don't poems have a different rating than a regular article?

the following hubs are in the main my poems but it seems that if some action doesn't follow by 25th March they will be unpublished because they don't fit the current mould!...a poem is not like text it takes a concept and enlarges the subject matter in few words and the fewer the better sometimes!...

I've only ever written non-fiction stuff here on HP but more and more I'm noticing that people post poetry and fiction. I'm into that. Is it worth me joining in? Is there a wide enough community here for it to be worth posting poetry and stuff? Or should I avoid it to keep my hubber score up and my...
