My Writing Strategy - Comments Welcome

    Ok .. I haven't been here long but 2 things have happened since my first hub.

    1) I've re-discovered my love of writing
    2) The pandalisation by google

    I've decided to try to earn some money at this game and with the Panda hit that is going to be difficult here.

    Don't worry though, I like hubpages and will stick around to see how it all goes but as others have suggested, it's probably not good to put all my eggs in one basket so here's my plan .. feel free to make suggestions etc.

    1) Setting up personal website as a copywriter hopefully attract some work (maybe starting with current web clients)

    2) Have started setting up a monetised Wordpress site with articles that I find interesting (some will be moved from here)

    3) As HP is struggling for SE at the moment, any hubs that are short term (eg Royal Wedding Hubs) will be posted at Excerptz who don't seem to have been hit though long term it could happen

    4) Other articles aimed at getting good adsense returns and aren't short term will be posted here .. ie hubs I may not find interesting to write but may work eg 'dental implants'

    Does that seem a reasonable strategy ? any thoughts ?

    I can't comment on your particular strategy as I simply don't know enough about your sites, but diversification and being the master of your own domain are two things that are essential right now.

    I'm a bit brain dead at the moment, between dealing with my Wordpress sites when I don't yet know what I am doing, and others things going on at home. Going stir-crazy - need to get out but can't yet walk far enough with my back being bad.

    It sounds to me like you have a very good strategy going.

    I have no doubt our hubs will creep back up in the rankings but no idea the timescale. Could be a long time away.

    Meanwhile starting off niche sites seems like a good idea. Easier for those of us who have done this sort of thing before, of course...which isn't me lol

    Excerptz is not the only site of its type out there. Thisisoli also has an excellent site where I'm sure well-written articles will be welcomed.

    If you have a url of your own that can encompass all sorts of different writing topics, I'd stick to that.

    As for writing hubs for the long term, that is an excellent idea also. HP will be back!

    I love what I have been able to learn here, but I also need to make in income and that is why I am diversifying.

            I have not made a cent from anything perhaps its because I'm not understanding this well OR the intention was to just write , write and write ..

            Ritsos great strategy
            if it works for you I guess no harm in me trying to do the same

            Good luck smile
