I did a little blog for my husband for his job. It never got more than two or three views a day. Now his traffic to his site is up 942% while my HubPages is not 24%.
Really whats a google blog, I have couple of blogspot blogs and such that give me impressions is it google blog .com I'm serious I haven't done one but sounds promising
Well, thanks. This is interesting to know.
I have a blogger blog, and it's slowly been gaining traction, but I cannot figure out why certain posts get most of the hits.
The statistics section of the blog isn't very helpful either.
Although I haven't yet made money with my blogger blog, I am increasing the amount of posts per week, and will devote more attention to the way it looks. Those cool custom banners you see on some of these blogs are very thoughtfully designed, and I think I know a graphic designer who could help me with such a project.
At least I CAN figure out where the visitors to my blog are located in the world, and I make a conscious effort to keep the international visitors in mind, as I write. More than I would attempt on HubPages, in fact.
I’ve also got one going. So far it only has a cult following of one. Me.
I have recently become a Wordpress fiend, I prefer it to Blogspot because it has so many cool plugins, however you do have to pay for a domain name and hosting.
I am a little intimidated by WordPress. I have heard tons of good stuff about it.
WordPress is a bit more professional and good also. I use both regularly. Google Blogger traffic is truly on the increase and juiced by Google also. I love their recent innovations and flexibilities. In fact, I got much surprised recently selling 7 items(shipped) on Amazon in one day on my blogspot. I only just dislike the high level of irrelevant and comment spam I receive frequently from marketers trying to gain cheap backlinks with spam comments, though I completely trash the spam comments. Quite interesting. Still learning more effective strategies on both of them.
You should write a hub about this. Hubs that educate other hubbers about how to make more money off of their adsense account tend to get quite a lot of hits.
Actually, I just read this thread: http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/A … &hl=en
Google blog(Blogger) a.k.a blogspot is completely different from Google sites. Blogger has integrated on Blogspot with Google Adsense and Amazon Affiliates optional income channels. You're the one to activate or deactivate any, or decide not to blog with any of them.
I hadn't heard of Google blogs before but it looks good! Thanks for sharing!
Do you mean a blogspot blog?
Well, I started a blog in the spring of 2009, and I didn't write much back then. This February I started another blog, and so far my AdSense earnings are a bit over $2.50. The blog does get traffic, but no one clicks on the ads.
Any recommendations for that?
It depends on what kinds of ads they are.
My hubs which have "Free Tarot" ads seem to get quite a few hits, for example.
I've had a bout 6-8 Google blogs over the past three years and they don't make any money for me...I guess I don't have the right niches ..
idid it!!! i might just transfer articles from here to there.

Despite all that's gone on, I still consider HubPages my online home and the place where I'd prefer my content live. In fact, I've been extremely impressed and excited about the niche sites, and my traffic for Hubs moved over has looked really, really good. However, I still have concerns, namely...

A couple of months ago I pointed my most successful blog to my own domain so instead of xxx.blogspot.com(etc) my blog is now myowndomain.com(etc). The blog looks over populated to me and I find that WP has more templates to work with. when I reduce the stuff on the front page it just looks weird....

Im a blogger and I am assuming many others here are bloggers. I was wondering what you blog about, where you blog, and was thinking that maybe we can do something like post our blogs so we can follow each other or something.... I blog on Blogger and my focus is the arts, all mediums ranging from...

Which would you recommend for starting a blog to support your Hubs -- blogger or wordpress? Do blogger pages tend to get better indexed/higher PRs since Google owns it?

I've been thinking of putting up a new HubPage account (an alter-ego for some) solely for my accounting / business / technical hubs. But I've noticed that accounting hubs are not really ranked that high here (or I'm not looking real hard). So I'm thinking of putting up my own blog about accounting....
