    What is better - publishing on Hubpages or on your own website/blog?

    What do you believe is better in terms of income - publishing an article on Hubpages, or publishing it on your own website or blog? Do articles published on Hubpages tend to get more views, or it doesn't matter?

    Hubpages is best used for site promotion. Publishing on your own site has better income possibilities. Nevertheless, it requires extra work especially in gaining better PR. With hubpages, you don't need to worry so much about optimizing your hubs for better search engine ranking since the site will do it for you. All you need to do is publish unique and informative hubs.

    I prefer HubPages. I'm too old and lazy to figure out how to set up my own site.

    I think the shear volume of traffic here would be more beneficial in terms of income.  But I think having your own site is also a good idea.  Why not both?

    Starting your own website is 10x more lucrative than Hubpages.  Sharing your page impressions hurts your earnings more than you would think.  That being said generating traffic for a website is extremely difficult, which is why linking your articles to your website really helps it get off the ground.  My website gets a tenth or the traffic but generates the same earnings.

    If you can draw the traffic that will purchase from affiliates, your own website is a better deal. I've earned more on HubPages because of the large platform that it provides. Also, most of my online work outside of HP is not really conducive to selling products, so HP helps with ad impressions.

    For me the HubPages forum is a start-over where I am new and therefore do not get the 1000+ hits a week that I get on my other blog.  For volume and sheer internet "presence" it seems to be severely limiting but maybe in a year I will be where I am elsewhere. The search engines seem to pick my other blog up better but it has been active for a couple years now.

    If you get the same amount of traffic on your own site then you'd make more money than you do here. But writing on HP is better for you SEO wise. Your hubs have a better chance of ranking here so there's less work.

    That said, my blogs are all geo targeted for my country so whenever i want to write about something that is relevant locally, I write it on my blog. If it's more universal, then I make a hub.
