What do you prefer more? Creating hundreds or thousands of Hubs or creating a personal blog/website?
What approach is more rewarding in your opinion? Investing your valuable time on creating hundreds or thousands of Hubs or put your all the efforts on creating a powerful single, personal blog/website? Which approach is more worthy of investing your time?
Second option. I'd rather create a website. I feel independent in doing anything with MY WEBSITE. No restrictions. Moreover I'll get the feeling It is MINE.
Writing hubs. The advantage is that on Hubpages, I don't have to have a cohesive 'theme', I can write hubs on many different topics. If I had my own blog or website, it would need to look like it is 'about' something. Also, I don't need to be a computer wizard with Hubpages, I can put in polls, arrange page layout etc, easily. If I had my own website with its own domain name, I would need to learn a content management system (program that lets you put your stuff where you want it) and I don't want to be bothered with that!
I invested my time in writing just 1 article and set it free on the internet with google on June 2010 A.D. 2 months later on August 2010 A.D. the referring sites found my article and spread it around the world in 8 countries. September 11, 2010 A.D. I began to get page impressions on my article. December 28, 2010 A.D. I earned my first $.01 cent on my article. March 24, 2011 A.D. I broken the milestone of having 100 views a month on my article and it will never again fall below 100 views a month for my article. I expect to get my first adsense payout on May or June 2011 A.D.
When I first started out I was all about creating CONTENT to turn into hubs and for a while it was working and it was great but now after 200 hubs i'm starting to see that it's not going as well as I've had the last 4 to 5 hubs which where filled with content and great in my eyes Flagged by other hubbers.
So for me if I'm going to invest time in to writing hubs which can be flagged and brought down at any time regardless of how good it is or what not it's not worth it. But Blogging and putting your time and investment in to one Single Blog is. I've been using Tumblr for about a year now and couldn't be more happy.
It's the one blog i'm focusing on right now and has been indexed by Google Bing And Yahoo and so many other sites as well. So having the time and investment in one blog is better than using that towards writing more hubs. OUt of the 200 hubs I have only 30 to 40 of them REC Traffic on a daily basis. So Blogging is my favorite and new direction right now.

Im Hubber and Blogger so I will give you an answer.
Blog - many work, little cash and NO SEO at start.
HubPages - many work, little cash but raising every month and EASIER SEO at start ;-)
I'm not talkin that blog is bad idea. It is just harder to establish.

This is long, so here's the bottom line: Basically, my problem is I want to build a site around the same topics and keywords I've done well with here on HP, but I don't want to do anything that would damage the work I've already posted here.I have a couple of niche HubPages accounts that do okay....

Curious: Do you have multiple accounts, because your profile shows 68 hubs. I took a lot of mine and moved them. I let what I have left sit til it goes idle then I take remove it. I have over 80 articles, new ones, that are not published here, but elsewhere. Earnings are less than 2 bucks a month....

To everyone who is using the Disavowal Link Tool on Google and/or has had a loss of traffic, be sure to remove any articles you have on EzineArticles and any other article sites you may have used to post links to your HP subdomain or Hubs. These links are considered spam links by Google and...

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?
