    If I migrate from HubPages to Blogger, will I get more traffic?

    Seems there's some discussion that Blogger may perform better in search results that HubPages (plus, I can use my own domain).

      Not from my experiences. The only blogger pages I have been successful with were promoted here.

      Hard to say at this point, GJ.  Nothing is certain on the net.  smile

      Yeah, I believe its hard to get good continuous traffic from blogger. Why not use both platforms?

      IMHO and IME, no.

      I came from Blogger to HP. My pay is much better over here.

      I think this is due to the perception that since Blogger is in Google family, it gets better treatment automatically. I disagree. I think most of the blogs are bull**** and contains random junk (some of mine included). HP is about articles (and occasional poems and whatnot). Which is better for Panda? Guess.

        I also migrated from blogger to HP. I had ZERO views on blogger as compared to what I have now. To be fair, all my views on HP are from HP...but still it matters to me that someone is reading my article somehow.

      Blogger is just a platform.  You could migrate your Hubs to a blog on Blogger, Wordpress.com, Weebly or any other platform and the result would be exactly the same.  Just because Google owns Blogger doesn't give blogspot blogs any advantage in the search engines. 

      It's well known that if you want your blog to be successful, you need to pick a topic and stick to it. Google doesn't like blogs which are all over the place, and is much more likely to rank you in it search engine results if you're focussed.

      So it won't work if you migrate all your Hubs, but it might work if you take all the Hubs on one subject and migrate them.  Some Hubbers have done so and are doing fairly well.

    Same here, I have yet to see any significant traffic from blogger and it doesn't seem to be as user friendly as HubPages....cool

    Why migrate? Use both - I do!

    Make your content unique on both (obviously) and use your Blogger blog to legitimately promote your Hubs. I get huge levels of traffic to my Hubs from my principal blog.

    Yes, it’s better to use both platforms... I do. I really don't know why but when the traffic drops here it increases on blogger. So, somehow there is a balance.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    I don't think I want to use multiple platforms for my content. There's value in having your articles uniquely written in one place and not regurgitated and sprayed across a number of platforms--it's duplicative and I think one of the more duplicitous tactics that Google has recognized and now penalized this site and others for...

      Big mistake if you want to earn serious money online and shield yourself from losing it in one hit.

      The Google Panda slap in late February '11 cost some hubbers up to 80% of their earnings - and many of those hubbers had content ONLY or MAINLY on Hubpages. Some of those hubbers were earning thousands per month.

      You need to diversify if you write online - your own sites are the best way to go because you get 100% of earnings and if the site closes or get slapped, it's because of something you did, not some random spammer in China.

      If you stay on revenue sharing sites, try writing on half a dozen different ones - Webanswers, Bukisa, Infobarrel, Wizzley etc. You CANNOT have your eggs in too many baskets (with the exception of affiliates, since they usually have payout amounts that are hard to achieve if you're using lots.)

      I wouldn't recommend moving your content that is already here, unless it's getting no traffic at all - it's aged a little and moving it will restart that process.

      Don't write duplicate content though - it's completely possible to write an article on the same topic, but with a slightly different view or based on a slightly different area.

      On the contrary, if you have an online presence that includes unique articles on multiple sites, your reputation will go up in Google's eyes, not down. 

      It's only if you publish the same articles in more than one place that you'll run into trouble. 

      And putting all your work on one site, unless it's a site you own, is dangerous.  If that site hits a problem or worse, closes down altogether, you've lost everything.

    I didn't mean to use duplicate content. I personally write unique content on both platforms.

    Didn't the OP migrate from blogger to HP in the first place?

    Blogger is great if you want your own website. Constantly adding posts to your blogger blog and interlinking between your articles is a good way to eventually generate some serious traffic and/or advertising revenue. If you do plan to create your own website and attempt to make money through the content you post there, keep in mind that you will have to learn how to target keywords and phrases, build external links that point towards your specific pages or articles on your website, create links between your own articles, etc.

    What HubPages provides is a community that will allow writers who don't have the slightest clue how to do any of this a chance to still see that their article is being viewed - maybe even get a comment or two. You can make some serious cash through HP, but you will have to apply all of the techniques I mentioned above to your hubs the same way you would to your own website. Also, Hubs will have potential to generate serious traffic the moment they are created because they are not affected by the limitations that a brand new domain will usually go through for at least the first three months of it's existence.

    I have a few different articles on HubPages about the essentials of making Adsense money through HP, blogger or your own domain by providing only information or content.
