I thought i would share this and see what the opinions are.Please feedback your thoughts.
Majority of internet users are used to a website layout (in my opinion) so i decided to test a new layout.
The basic idea:
I have a few new hubs on crate engines (not important though, just an example) that only link back to a central hub with all the categories and the general info( almost like a website home page or an index) and not linking to each other.
My idea is that the reader can view the category hubs from the home page hub and at the top of the category hub is a text module with the link back to the home page.
My google analytics shows increased time on the main hub and returns to read the next category. The exit is usually via an advert as they do not feel that pressing the back arrow will serve its purpose. Adsense has increased over the last two weeks via these pages.
Any comments on this strategy please.
I tried something similar to this a while back. Didn't see any immediate success, but that was probably due to poor keyword choice. It's kind of like having a capstone hub, but with more focus on the capstone hub instead of interlinking.
What's the organic traffic like on those hubs?
They draw about 60% of the capstone hub.Possibly as they are subniche hubs. If I exclude the internal page jumps, the capstone still draws more traffic as it has a broader spectrum of the niche.
Sounds like a good idea. I especially like the link you have at the top of each hub redirecting to the capstone. I might try it! Thanks for sharing
If you want to increase AdSense CTR take all the fluff off of hubs. No photos, no RSS feeds, no voting panels, no amazon, no comments.
The hubs are boring to look at but it really does work.
Thats an interesting take on adsense. It sounds like it might work with more adsense ads on page, but it does limit options of revenue. Not sure I agree.
Its a fairly good route to take, if you create a well designed network of sites you can see some major benefits, especially in sales!
Just want to be sure I'm understanding, you basically create a hub with links to all of your other hubs?
The idea is to create a capstone series, but giving the option for traffic to return to the capstone index like that of a website.Cpastone hubs are missing the option to return to the original index and only link to each other. It cleans up the internal linking in your indexed hubs. Your organic traffic that arrives via one of the indexed hubs will be encouraged to go and read the whole series thus limiting their clickback to the google search results. Ensures they stay on your hubs giving more chance of adsense and products. Just a theory though.
Its against hubpages policy to post the links but you can go to my profile and go to the motoring section and you will see a hub saying crate engines and components review.This is the home page. Then if you go to one of the crate engine subpages, at the top you will see a text link back to the home page.
Would love to see an example of it.
If you are comfortable with it than please add an example or may be some kind of chart showing what do you want to say.

Just gaging anyone else's earnings here. I just checked google adsense and I have earned 64 dollars in 18 months. I've only written 19 Hubs and most of them don't get any traffic. Any thoughts?

I got into an interesting discussion on another thread, and thought it would make a good thread itself. The question of the day is how do you feel about other hubbers clicking on an ad in your hubs?Personally I really don't see a problem with it as long as the ad interests them from a good quality...

There have been several theories about what content Google is penalising and rewarding in the search results but at the moment it does seem a bit random (from my end). Let's compare notes and hopefully we can see some common threads in there. What content of yours is holding on to its ranking and...

I am planning to write hubs for my crochet earrings patterns. The crochet patterns will be written in a separate hub for each earrings. But I plan to write a hub which will serve as an umbrella for all these patterns. Will this umbrella hub be classified as "Overly Promotional" if...
