Multiple account traffic advantages?

    On HubPages I tend to publish three types of articles, with book reviews, recipes, and the remainder being a smorgasbord of different articles ranging from history articles to school papers to articles about travelling and jobs. I was considering creating a new account where I would migrate all of my book review articles to, since there is commonly advice that one should choose to specialize in a single topic, and the book review articles are easy to move. But I don't know if that actually would lead to any greater views for a subject which gets relatively few views. Does anybody know what the effect would be?

    Firstly, moving articles means unpublishing them from account A before moving them to Account B. You have to wait until Google de-indexes them so they don't appear as copied content.

    Secondly, your original publication date is lost. That means that any stolen articles will have precedent over them because theirs will appear to have been published first.

    Thirdly, each account has to make the minimum $50 before you reach payout.

      I’m well aware of all of these, but they are different than the question I was asking.

        The effect on views will be the same as when you first published. You will lose the age/authority of the article. As it will be deindexed, it will have to gain traction again.

        I moved one with quite reasonable traffic from the account set up for my Squidoo articles. It has never regained that traffic despite an extensive rewrite.

    The way that HP is set up now, with niche pages, means that there is no real advantage to having a separate account for each subject. It used to matter when we had subdomains, but now the better of your articles are going to be sent to a site that is focused on one subject.
    The reason that you do not have much traffic here is the subjects, not the fact that your articles are all over the place. Your recipe articles are interesting (I even bookmarked one that I want to try tomorrow) but that site does not get much traffic. If you type in a recipe name into Google you will see that the top ranked articles are from other sites.
    Your book reviews are interesting but they have not been moved to a niche site. (You can submit one each 15 days to HP and they can be moved at that time.) Even after they are on a niche site, I do not think they will see much traffic. I think the problem is that they are not optimized for the internet. Check book reviews on Owlcation and Letterpile (if I am wrong on this someone please correct me) and edit your articles so that they are more "internet-friendly".
    Best of luck whatever you decide.

    There are no traffic advantages from having multiple accounts nowadays. I have multiple accounts, but that's from the days when there were subdomains.

    Organizationally, I could maybe see an argument for having an account for new each topic area, but if you start moving stuff between accounts, you will lose views rather than gain them.
