I started writing for HubPages in November 2011, so I'm still going through the learning curve. I write hubs about beauty tips for women 40 years of age and older.
I've noticed while reading other Hubber's articles, that sometime a person will write about different unrelated subject matters. Is that permitted? I write for another website and it is very topics oriented, so the writers choose or are given a certain topic to write about and you only write about that particular topic.
Thanking you in advance for the answer to my question.
It has been my experience and according to Google Analytics, that staying with one topic is the best. Keywords are now picked out of the hub/article and sticking with one topic give more weight to your hub, and weight will be what pulls it up in ranking on Google.
There is no rule saying what you can or can't write about (as long as it abides by site content and topic rules.)
Some people start a new account for each topic, too.
yes, your sub domain can include topics you are interested in writing about. You might not want to write about too many unrelated topics, because there are benefits to grouping related hubs. If you look around at different profiles, you'll notice that many hubbers write on various topics of interest.
Thanks to all for the answers.
I've noted that one particular Hubber who is very popular, she has written on various topics from home decorating, cooking, restoring an old home, etc. That is what got me to thinking and wondering about writing on various topics.
WryLilt, I thought we could only have one Hub account?
I went to the link given by relache. Now I'm more confused about whether to venture off to write cooking articles for Hub along with my beauty articles.
I've been writing Hub articles since November. It has been a very slow process, my page views are slow but rising. Any money made so far has been super slow, I haven't as yet made even close to enough to be paid. So I was wondering about my other options on writing for HubPages.
You can open any number of accounts. Just note that you will then have to reach the payout on each of your accounts individually.
It is normal for most bloggers that only 10-20% of their articles get majority of the traffic. Analyse which of your articles fetch better traffic and find the reason for its success. Try to learn which the keywords to target and after some time you will start making good revenue.
You can have more than one account, but you use a different screen name for each account.
You can write on as many topics as you like. Even the link states this when describing, What is a Hub. There's nothing stating that you can only write on one topic. If you have great recipes, why not publish them for others to enjoy? Plenty of hubbers also share recipes along with other topics on the same account.
Many Hubbers write about a variety of topics. It sounds like the site you're on like to thunk of writers as experts and brand them a bit for specialty areas. I'm not sure how it effects traffic here to spread out and have a variety of topics, but some very good Hubbers do that.
As someone pointed out, within each individual hub, it's best to focus on one topic
Yes, you can have several accounts. I think there are quite a few doing that. But HP specifically asks that we use only one for our Forum personality. So you could have 3-4 separate IDs here, but o ly one that you use in the community environment.
Okay, if i decided to open another account on a different subject matter, would I be able to open a different Amazon, HubPage ads, AdSense? Or would they all be connected to my current account. Just curious.
If I do decide to open another account, I doubt I'll do right now.
I write on a variety of topics and have no issues keeping them all in one account. The groups feature lets me put them in different groups, and the categories also separate them. I try to link hubs with the same topics together by linking them to each other. Over time, if you have a lot of hubs, it might make it a little bit harder to keep track of them, but again, the groups feature lets you see hubs in a particular group at a time.
For you, I would imagine that the beauty hubs and the recipe hubs are aiming at the same target audience. Someone who is interested in one is likely to e interested in the other. Personally I would keep them together, unless I was aiming for a different audience.
I write for quite a few topics, all under my one hub pages account. Like Millionaire tips, I group them by content. I also put links into my hubs so that anyone looking at that hub can easily find my others on the same topic.

Writing has always been my way of talking when no-one is listening so finding HubPages is as good as picking up the phone and knowing there is someone on the other end of the line.My problem is that I have so much to write about I don't know what my niche is or if I even want one. What do you think...

Assuming you care to be visible to big G.1. Start with a niche topic that can get a lot of search results. Use the adword keyword tool to find it. If you don't know what that is google "adword keyword tool". 2. Make a hub based on that topic that is somewhat broad concerning that...

Is it better to write hubs all in one niche or write about different things?So far, I have 13 Hubs published. I have been jumping around on topics, writing about what I am inspired to do some research on that day. I do have several focused on drug addiction, though. I wonder, is it better to write...

The Sub-Domain introduced to us here at Hubpages is suppose to help our hubs/writing to be separated out from the entire HP site to be...how do I say this?...judged by Google for quality and credibility by author?I noticed after a slow beginning the first couple of weeks, after I made the...

The Medium platform sounds great. Writers' income does not come from advertising (yay!) but from a chunk of the membership fees. But here is the catch: As a non paid up member you are only allowed to read three articles per month for free. After that, if you are interested in a topic and want...

A few days ago I reposted a comment that another hubber had taken from Google. The comment stated that if you wrote about what you know, your reputation would improve. In fact, if you were writing about issue relating to money or health, unless you had some authority your articles would be graded...
