    I want to open up an account to write about real estate. Can I sign up under a different  username and account?

      Yes, but it really isn't a good thing to do because you will lose the earnings of each month from one or the other account unless each account meets the $50 payout.  If you put all of them on one site, then the numbers are cumulative and you'll be more likely to reach payout faster each month.  Also, I'm not sure from what you said if you are talking about "real estate" in terms of selling it or to promote a particular RE company because if you try to do this your articles will be dropped.

      Yes, you can.

      I have another account I had to open because I wanted a one-topic site. It was the best decision I ever took on HubPages.
      It's my best earner, has great views, and ALL its hubs are on the same niche site.

      My account with varied topics doesn't earn half as much as it does, even with less than two dozen hubs.

      ...and it's nice earning from two different accounts every month.

        That's exactly my experience viryabo :-)

      We do permit multiple accounts, but you should be aware that, as TIMETRAVELER2 mentions, each of your accounts will have to reach the $50 payout threshold separately, whereas if all of your articles were on a single account, they would be accumulating together. As far as the HubPages rules go, we allow authors to open as many accounts as they like. You can decide what you think is best for your content.

    I agree with TT2. Consolidate your articles and you will do better all around.

    I disagree! I have 2 accounts that are both focused on different things (although the other account used to be my main one with more varied topics) but I think it is good to focus on one topic on a particular account because then you can be viewed as more of an expert on that subject (IMO).
    Yes in the beginning you will need to build up views on both accounts before you get paid but you won't lose the earnings (not sure if you meant to say that TT2!) they will just accumulate on both accounts until you reach payout.

      I worded that incorrectly.  What I meant was that if you do not reach payout on each site each month you won't get paid, whereas if you have everything on one site you are more likely to reach payout.

      Also, I actually agree with what you said about being considered an expert in some ways, but remember that your hubs now get placed on niche sites and there is where people can see you as an expert if you write good and multiple articles.  HP is basically a holding site for hubs waiting to be moved to the niche sites.

    Why not maintain one account and build that one?

      I have only 140 or so hubs (some are not published currently) and that number is unwieldy for me to manage. I wish the index page of our accounts had other options for organizing (such as topics for those of us who have written about varied things). That's actually been one reason I haven't added to the titles in quite a while. I cannot imagine how those who have 500-1000 hubs can manage their accounts.

        I have approximately the same number of hubs as you in my main account.  The way I manage them is to manipulate the columns on the stats page so that I can see which ones are faltering.  Those are the ones I try to update.

        Also, I keep them divided by topic on spreadsheets, which makes it easy, also.  However, I would not want to have 1000 hubs...ever.  I have always believed that it is not the number of hubs you have but their quality that makes the difference.

    I agree TT2, you need to get hubs onto niche sites to get featured as an expert. My concern is though, that if people look at my author page and see that I am writing hubs on all sorts of topics then that will dilute my authority on one and also if people are looking for information on that topic then they don't really want to see other varied stuff.
    If all of your hubs are going to be on varied topics then I guess it makes sense to just have them all under one account but if you want to write a whole bunch of specialist hubs on one topic then I would say that is a good enough reason not to maintain one account and build on it, but instead to have that as a separate account.

    You don't lose any money, it just potentially changes when you get the payout.

    It is no longer necessary to have individual accounts with a unique niche because your hubs will be moved to the proper niche sites anyway ( if they are good enough).

      That's true but I still stand by my point that if someone clicks through to your profile to see more information that is relevant to them then having articles on lots of different topics may not be the best thing in all circumstances :-)

        I think you are correct. It was a lot more important back when we had subdomains, but even now I think it matters to search engines if you have many articles written on the same subject. (Yes, I know that some will say that the engines all look all those who write for HP are on one site, so it does not matter. I disagree.)

        Glenn Stokposted 5 years agoin reply to this

        Yes, I agree with the issue that our HP profile has all our articles in a chronological list rather than listed by category. For that reason I created my own categorized list on my author site that you see when you click the home icon on my HP profile.

        Even that is not so important however, since most organic traffic comes direct to individual articles. Few people search through profile listings anyway. But I still like having my listing by category, as you mentioned, for those who want to use it.
