Which of these hub topics do you think would be most successful?
I have a few hub ideas.
Some of them are:
1. A hub about Elvis Presley
2. A hub about lossless audio
3. A hub comparing software audio players
4. A hub comparing software video players
5. A hub about Japanese green tea
6. A hub about tea in general
7. A hub about pervasive developmental disorders
8. A hub about autism spectrum disorders
9. A hub about phpBB forum software
10. A hub about blogging
11. A hub about foreign films
12. A hub about classic sci-fi books
13. A hub about video game emulators
14. A hub about fine art
Hubs need to be well-written to be successful of course, but out of the above topics, which do you think would be most successful?
The foreign films and sci-fi books you could have an Amazon capsule accompanying the review.
Use https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal to see what sort of traffic keywords are generating. You can also see the average cost per click that advertisers are paying (how much a publisher gets is anyone's guess).
Write what you love or interests you, and use the Keyword Tool to see which direction you should target it for maximum revenue potential.
Well for my part sci fi bores me rigid, I would look at any of the others, except the Teas I did a Hub on Teas under my original name and it got least counts of all my 118 Hubs. By a wide margin. Hard to write on Fine Art, I mean where would you even start.
"A hub about autism spectrum disorders" Autism is getting a lot of attention these days. This makes it a good choice.
"A hub about Elvis Presley" The guy is dead and he makes more money than you.....always a good topic.
"A hub about fine art" I've seen a few of these here, they seem to do well..
This question cannot be answered unless you tell us what you mean by successful. Success can be many things.
- Is it the number of views that it will get?
- Is it the amount of money that you can make from promoting an affiliate product?
- Is it the revenue you would make from adsense?
- Is it the number of comments you would receive?
- Is it the satisfaction that you would get from researching and writing the hub?
- Is it the number of people who would become your followers after reading it?
- Is it the number of visitors it would attract to one of your other websites?
So - what do you mean by "successful"
A hub about what you love. Those score the highest and bring in the most traffic in my experience. From that list are there hubs you would love to write about? Write on.
10. A hub about blogging
12. A hub about classic sci-fi books
Around the world 2,240,000 people search for the exact term elvis presley every month. The average cost per click that an advertiser is paying is $0.55.
However the competition is strong, so breaking into the top 10 for search results won't be easy.
More people actually search for elvis presley than just elvis (1,220,000).
Every month 3,600 people search for elvis graceland and the average CPC is $2.19.
Perhaps throw in a spelling mistake because every month there are 12,100 searches for elvis presely.
I agree with lyrics. Write about what you really love, and the topics will be successful If you write from your heart, and what you know, The fans will come. I guarantee it.
It really looks like you could do well with any or all of those.
Using the right keywords is what you have to focus on and you will do just fine.
All of them can be successful. It depends on how you write them.
i'm sure you can make a great job with any of them !
I agree with tantrum on this but one thing I have to add is that you can look out for different sub categories for example for:
phpBB forum software, you can research and write on mysql forum software bulletin board forum software forum software packages ruby forum software
forum spam software php forum software phpbb forum games message board software
and many more. The first thing to write on anything is to try to find out less competitive keywords or phrases for the title and main keyword of your hub.
Best of luck. Happy New Year in advance.
I'll give this an educated guess ...
Most hits - video games emulators
Most profit - phpBB forum software
I see video game emulators as a topic many would be interested in, given that everyone has a PC capable of playing video games but not everyone has a video game system - video game emulator equates to a free video game system (unless you're caught, which then equates to a big fine). And my finding is that hubs dealing with free goods don't typically profit.
As for phpBB forums software ... If you're putting up a forum then you are probably already looking into investing some cash. Many forum masters take pride in having the best forum with the best features and they are willing to pay good bucks for these. As such, I can see them clicking on ads regarding different available programs.
Write about whatever, but make your hub interesting:) Me? As a casual observer, OK I'm also a hubber....now..wasn't before. My point is...write about what you know, or what interests you. If its not the 'in thing' just now, you never know, the world might catch up!
My first hub was about growing kiwis from seed. It is only a year or two since I was looking this info up on the net myself, and I had to hit a lot of pages before I found what I was looking for.
So I wrote a hub including the info I wanted.
Point is, do what you do best, not what someone else tells you is the in-thing! The in-thing today is history tomorrow.
the fun thing about keywords and adsense is that every topic is profitable.
If you put the time into finding what combo of words will bring you traffic at a reasonable return per click and conquerable competition
Take any of your topics, do a quick google search, check out a top result, run the URL through a keyword tool and start with those keyword strings.
be clever with your integration and come back from christmas vacation with a fat google check in your mailbox

What's your favourite topic to hub about?
by Edweirdo 7 years ago
Well, I'm fast approaching my 1 year anniversary here, and I figured I would devote my 100th hub to a look back at my experiences at HubPages.Not to toot my own horn, but I've had about 280,000 views and have made about $700 (Adsense + Amazon) in 2010, and that seems pretty good, IMHO! I must be...

I see "Mental Health" is one of your topics. Care to write a hub about that?

Are there any taboo topics to write a hub about?I'm not talking about violations of the TOS. Rather, are there things we should never write a hub on? Things that could hurt us in Google and spread to all our other hubs?
