Is finding a niche the real way to become established on HUbPages or elsewhere?
If a writeris to be really successful on HubPages, is being a niche writer the best way to achieve it?
I think so. It wasn't until I released one of my short stories that I really got noticed. It gave me the confidence to try finishing the novel I've been working on and I think it will help that lots of people have already seen my literary work.
Yes, a niche or niches can help you to establish yourself. You are then a writer becoming known for your speciality or specialities, such as a travel writer or an internet "making money blogger."
If you can find a different slant on your topics it will help you.
But you need to get your articles up in Google rankings to help you achieve this goal.
I don't know. I personally write Christian devotional, inspirational type articles, which gain a following perhaps smaller than some, but they do get read. When I go outside that genre, I don't seem to get as many hits. However, I have seen some writers here that write many different types of articles, stories, and book chapters or series. Some funny, some serious, some informative, and some with mystery or intrigue. Perhaps they started with one thing and branched out later as they became more established. I think the most important thing is to write from your heart. From looking at your score of 96, it seems you are doing pretty well. Of course, reading, commenting, and following other hubbers, as well as asking and answering questions gets you out there too. Good question. I will be interested in the answers others have.
It's easily done, and you need to have a style of writing unique to you. You can be what you like, story-teller, fact-finder, tour guide, history teacher, language researcher, whatever. You could be all five, as long as you give your readers variety and insight into a world they may not know about. Or you might put yourself into the limelight as a poet.
It's your choice, make your mark.
I think so as then you become some what of an expert in that area and people will find you, it also helps because then you will produce more articles on one subject.
My page views didn't really start climbing until I became obsessed with Nibiru Planet X however I also became a better writer, more familiar with how to research, write and layout content, how SE's worked, how to create back links, Google Adwords, RSS feeds.
So perhaps it is the whole process however many writers seem to do better when they find their passion and it may take a while or you may accidently fall into as I did with Nibiru Planet X.
I don't know. I am pretty diversified. And I find success that way because there are so many readers out there with such different tastes, my work will appease just about anybody. I wouldn't be able to lock myself into one thing if I tried. My head just doesn't work that way.
Beats me. I've been writing mostly about forgotten B-Movies and heavy metal music almost exclusively since I joined here, yet my most viewed Hub has nothing to do with either one of those topics. Go figure.
I guess the lesson to be learned is it's nice to have a "niche" but it doesn't hurt to write something outside of your "comfort zone" every so often.
The issue isn't finding a tight niche. The issue is finding a topic you can write about extensively and in depth without repeating content others have already covered.
If you can write about two or three different areas, that's fine. But writing what everyone else is writing won't help bring traffic to your site, and the moment the content is wrong, you'll lose readers.
I also search to find niches in which I'm knowledgeable (often with additional citations) that bring value to readers. This increases the readership of the hubs among those searching for those terms.
