Hi, this is Ru-an I created this new account but im still ignorant as to why it is good to have different accounts. I know darkside does this. Maybe if he is around he can enlighten me? Anyone can answer of course. Thanks.
There are a few different reasons for different accounts.
1) Some people prefer to have niche specific accounts for various reasons
2) A high profile Hubber may not want to expose their good niches and create a second account to limit the copy catting and niche saturation
3) Multiple accounts could be used for self commenting
4) A second account could also be used to promote things that aren't so AdSense frindly
I'm sure there are more reasons, but this should at least get you thinking.
EDIT: oh yeah, and according to HP terms regarding multiple accounts, they would like you to use just one account for forum posting.
Ok, thanks for that. Commenting is that important that people would do self commenting?
This is especially useful for trolls to be able to back themselves up while making idiotic statements and causing strife on the site. Why HP allows this is yet another well kept secret.
I suppose only using one account for forum posting is merely a suggestion rather than a requirement. Mores the pity!
I have two accounts. I put different types of hubs in them.
This account has money and affiliate sales oriented hubs (so lots of product hubs)
The other is more how-to's and editorials. It's a nice way of separating and would make it easier for a person interested in my hubs to find another one they'd like.
Yeah this is the direction im thinking in. One account for sales and for info and knowledge. Makes it easier for your followers and for people to find you.
This is a great post. I have been around here 2 years and never thought about having a different accounts. It does makes sense 1 for sales, and 1 for info. Thanks for sharing.
Different accounts are good if you have multiple niches, goals, and/or personalities. Ha-ha!

I have sent an email to staff but no reply as yet; I understand that they are busy etc; My querie is if you have multiple accounts are you allowed to comment, rate & vote up your other accounts?

Just wondering how many accounts people have (in particular some of the top hubbers.)I'm not asking for the account names, just wondering how many people have.Do you write on them all? Or are some just for occasional or 'when I feel inspired' writing?(I have five other accounts but only use four....

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

Hi everyone. I cover many geeky topics, like Pokemon, Star Wars, all that fun stuff. Sometimes I wonder if readers would be better served by multiple accounts, one per topic, so that they can quickly find what they want without sifting through what they don't. Thoughts? Thanks!

I've always wondered why some Hubbers have more than one account. Is this a good thing or not? The only thing I can think of is that after a person writes many Hubs, it becomes a chore to take care of that one account.

I understand that you can use multiple accounts for google adsense, but when I make a new account, is there a way I can use my same email address? Would I just have to use a separate email for my new hub account, and use the same Google Adsense code?
