    I stumbled on Hub Pages accidentally from a blog post. The author started a lengthy post on her blog, which is where I found the article. The author then gave the link to Hub Pages to read the rest of the article. So in this instance she was sharing content on both her blog and Hub Pages. In fact, the article dealt with why you need to submit your articles to authority sites to gain any significant traffic and feedback.

    Here is the process I've been using. I write an article which I post to my blog and then my blog feed sends an article snippet to Facebook and Twitter. I then submit the article to and call it a day. Now I've heard some say that you're not supposed to submit your own articles to Digg, but I don't see it that way. Digg doesn't post the article. They post the description and a link to my blog. So there is no duplicate content.

    After doing some research on this site, it appears that this process won't work here because I would, in essence, be creating duplicate content.

    My experience with Adsense is that in the three plus years that I've had a blog I have earned a total of $3.90. So I'm not doing it for the money. The only reason I would consider contributing anything to Hub Pages would be to create backlinks and gain a wider audience for what I write.

    So can someone tell me how I could use Hub Pages more effectively than what I'm already doing?

      Well if you write here, watch your adsense grow.  This site has been optimized for success of writers.  The site is buzzing with activity and has a lot of google love.  If you have good content - you will succeed!

    The way I would go about it, so that you don't duplicate what you write on the internet (i.e. so that Google and Hubpages don't find duplicate words) is by using your blog to introduce your hub.

    Write a well written hub with unique content (words and photos etc) then in your blog link back to your hub. Your blog however should have different words and not be an exact copy of your hub. Your blog could/should share new or different information, have additional links to other rich content webpages (not necessarily your own). Think of your blog in this instance as a review of the hub, which lets your blog reader know about what information you have "discovered" on your own hub. Add different photos etc to make it different.

      I get it. But I see some problems going about it this way. First, if all I do on my blog is create links to my hub pages, I'm not doing my blog readers any favors. More importantly, I'm not accomplishing what I want to accomplish with the blog, which is to establish my site as an authority site.

      The second problem I see is that the process described in the previous post requires more time and effort.

      The way I'm going about it now seems to be a better plan. I get the links from the authority sites - Digg and Technorati - with everything pointing back to my blog, which is the main reason for writing blog posts. I'm not trying to get people from my blog to go elsewhere, I'm trying to entice people to come to the blog and from there on to the rest of the site.

        Why dont you just reverse the effort and write here and get your readership to read here?

        I see what you are saying. I'd stick with your plan because you would need to put alot of effort into hubbing and blogs to get backlinks to work. If you have an established blog with a good following then creating hubs, like you say, would be counter productive.

        If you had produced quality hubs with a large following then it wouldn't matter if you started a blog just to promote your hubs. It wouldn't matter if your blog had no followers as Google would see your blog for individual information and quality links, including backlinks to your hubs. This inturn would improve traffic to your hubs as your hubs would rank higher in
        Google search results. Have a read of this hub on nofollow by darkside which explains why it wouldnt be worth your while to produce small hubs which linked to your blog.
        Like you say you are better off using Digg and Technorati to create backlinks to your blog.

        In that case, write Hubs that promote your blog.  HubPages is an authority site - if you write original Hubs here, they will rank highly in search engines without much promotional effort on your part.  They're far more effective than posts on Digg and Technorati which get buried fairly quickly - Hubs go on increasing in visibility as time goes on.

        You can also advertise on the Hubs themselves, so you get a double whammy of your promotional Hubs making money directly as well as supporting your blog.

        All that makes it well worth the effort of writing some original material on HubPages.

    HP can provide you a extra platform to write about something 'similarly related' to your authority site. HP already has a great existing PR, help of inter-linking with other authors and HP is in top 100 sites big_smile
