How best to merge your website with HubPages

    I have a website/blog which has been online for some time, it only has a couple of articles on it but now I've discovered HubPages I want to somehow conbine the two to work together to earn an income. The thing is, I'm a bit confused about how I do this because obviously duplicate content is an issue. So could someone tell me how I can use my website and my hubpages profile together for the best affect?

    I haven't added a link to my website because I don't want people to thinking I'm spamming but if you want me to, I will add it for you. I say this because I think seeing the website might help someone to advise me on what to do.

      Firstly, you can add links to your profile. Then I can visit. :-)

      Do you have a theme? I see hubpages and my websites tying in two ways:

      1. Research. Create hubs on varying topics and if they do well, go on to write a whole series of content articles on your site. This works well because hubs automatically rank high in google compared to basic sites, making them fast and easy testing grounds.

      2. Angles. It's completely possible to write a 500 word quality piece on a topic you've already written on your site. And using a slightly different angle means that your hub won't be competing for the same keywords but will likely bring you more traffic if you place a backlink to your site in a high profile spot on the hub.

        The second one is what I'm most drawn too because they'll both have relevant related original content. Thanks for that, I just wasn't sure.

        I'm a bit of a conspiracy theorist and initially I was only going to write on this subject but I'm moving away from this because it can be such a grey area and theres not many ways to monitize from it. Instead I'm thinking of going down a more 'alternative idea' root. This could include writing on conspiracies but it will also opens me up to a whole catalogue of niches that could be considered alternative.

        I'll go and add the link to my profile now. Doh! Thanks for pointing that out. You must think its amature hour. LOL

          That was good advice again Wrylilt!
          I didn't have any links on my profile (doh!)and I agree that doing specific Hubpages and linking them back to specific webpages would work better than what I'm doing now: linking back to my homepage on my own website.
          great advice!
          Thanks Realitybomb for asking this!

            That's a good point.  All my dance Hubs include a link to one or more of my dance websites, and I do try to mix it up so I link to other pages on the sites, not just the home pages.

            If you have a blog, and can't find a suitable place to add a hyperlink in the text, you can add a RSS feed at the end of the Hub instead (note you can't do both - that's overly promotional).

            You can see that in action on some of my ballet Hubs, usually with the heading "More on Pointe Shoes".  I also have a few belly dancing Hubs where I've added the RSS feed from my belly dancing DVD blog.

      You can put a link in your profile and write similar and supportive articles to what you write on your website. Making sure they are unique. For example, if I write about cast iron cookware in my site, then I can write about how to season a cast iron hub here. That way it can be complimentary. Good luck.

    i think you should add your hubpages widget to your blog and add your blog url to your hubpages profile!
