    Hi
      I have seen quite a bit lately about maintaining "a persona" on HP in order to generate more income-worthy traffic--this in addition to so-called "evergreen" content.

      I am aware that it is allowed to have 2 different HP accounts, and I am wondering if that would be  a smart move to make, or after a year, with somewhat of a recognized following, would I be doing myself a disservice?

       I am thinking that I might move all my informative/educational/  hubs to the new account, and leave my poetry, comedy and social commentary hubs here.

       Since well over 75% of my traffic now is from within the HP community itself, I'm obviously not making any money to speak of, (cents as opposed to dollars) in spite of having tweaked my tags, titles, subtitles and content in recent months.

       I'd appreciate some feedback/opinions as to whether such a move might do more harm than good at this point. (Just recently got my 1-year accolade.)

      Thanks in advance.

    In a way, that sounds good. I wonder if hubpages could help us by allowing us to work under different subs. Like having different sections. I would find that would help me organise my work better.

      Hi, salt,

      Yes, that would be helpful, so we would not have to start from square one building up readership.  Are we allowed to 'cross-promote' different HP accounts at least within our profiles?

    Dzy, I think much the same.  I've been having trouble coming up with subjects that fit my "persona" and don't wish to see it change.  For me, the answer will be a second account to write more income, Amazon, oriented hubs.

    At the same time, I'm concerned that if I transfer hubs to the new account they will lose any benefit from age, so plan to leave current hubs as and where they are.  Simply start a new account with new hubs.

    Although the new account won't benefit from my current rapport (if any) on HP, it won't be aimed at hubbers at all and won't be of much interest to them.  I will need to keep the new account hubber score above 75, but that shouldn't be too hard.

    I think many hubbers do this, forum posting from one account while their other accounts seldom if ever do any posting on forums, answers, etc.

      Oh, that's a good point, wilderness.  I had been thinking in terms of moving the hubs...but you're right...leaving them where they are will allow the aging benefit...

      I don't think any of my current hubs (with the possible exception of the two newest on RC cars) are of much "interest" to either Amazon or Google...  as that was never my thrust in writing them.

      I simply enjoy writing and learning things and sharing. 

      I also have some controversial topics about which I may or may not write--but do not care to become embroiled in arguments, or have my blood pressure raised by snarky comments, so on any of those, I probably would not include a 'comments' capsule. ...(I don't mind if people don't agree with me--I just find it upsetting when they cannot be civil about it.) 

      Hmm... I seem to have gotten off-topic there....

    I set up another account because i wanted to write hubs to earn money which are quite different from the hubs on this account. The main reason I did it was because I felt writing more commercial hubs was not inline with the type of writing I had done so far. On that account I have very few followers, do not post in the forums (unless I forget) and nearly all my traffic comes from search engines. It also earns me money, which was the main point! I like it that way, two very separate accounts for different reasons.

      Hi, Polly C..

         Thanks much for your insight.  I can see where that would be a good approach.
