    Is it  better to concentrate your hubs on one general topic, or to diversify?

    I think it depends on how much you know about a particular topic. I know one hubber who writes almost exclusively about writing. He does well and has a large number of followers because he's an expert on the topic and has enough information to write many hubs on the topic. I have several categories I write under because I don't have enough about any one topic to make all my hubs fit into one niche. Also, I think diversifying may garner more views because anyone searching for various topics have more of a chance on finding one of your hubs. On the other hand, if you write your hubs on only one very popular topic, you may get a lot of views because more people are reading about that one thing. In my opinion, it depends on what you like to write about and what makes you happy.

    You do not have to concentrate on one subject as long as you know what you are writing about. If you already know a subject well (something which you have known since childhood, or perhaps you worked in that area, etc.). It can be work, a hobby, or something which you research well before you write about it.

    For instance, I began writing about birds because I have been into them for many years - watching them, feeding them, etc. I also began trying other areas to see how they felt to me when I wrote them plus what types of responses I received.

    It really depends on you and your knowledge. If you know allot about different subjects then it is OK to diversify. However if you only really know about one subject then you should stick to that. There are people on Hubpages who have more than one account and deal with different subject matter on each. I myself only use one account but I write about a few different subjects.

    The most important thing when looking to write a Hub is to write it on a subject you know and are passionate about as this will show in your writing. In the end it is up to you what you do but don't go writing about things you know little or nothing about as this will not earn you any money.

    Google treats your sub-domain as a website within a website. It also crawls and list keywords based on your contents. You can see the list by logging into Google webmaster tools.  It is under Google Index - Content Keywords

    If you write enough quality content around your keywords, Google will treat you an authority on those keywords and send you more traffic once a user query’s those keywords. This is why it is better to stick to your niche and write about 50 pages to see a change in SERP results.

    There are some writers who are versatile enough to know and write about different topics. They too can get more traffic once their contents around Google’s keyword reaches a threshold point. This may involve writing lots of hubs.

    Hope this answer helps

    I try to stick to hubs in several subject areas, but will branch out if I find a topic that interests me. That way, you can have several "Groups" of hubs around a few topics, but are not extremely specialized.
