I joined Hubpages to learn how to earn additional income online in my spare time. Now I am earning a little bit more each month. I started to create Blogs in addition to using Hubpages. How about you? Does anyone Blog anymore?
I'm so happy to hear people do actually blog still. I feel it's a great way to generate a new URL to promote to the search engines. It helps Hubbers like ourselves increase our traffic to our Hubs. Thanks everyone.
Hi, I do agree many people use Blogs for fun. I use Blogs for commercial use. I have Adsense, Kontera and Chitika ads all over my Blogs. I'm happy I started this Forum about Blogs. Many people still do use them. Have a great day.
Hi, I use Blogger.com which have Adsense, Kontera and Chitika ads on all of my Blogs. Here is a tip. In the edit section on the bottom right you will see a field to place Labels into it. Labels are considered keywords. Many of my blogs are listed in Google and other search engines.
Yes I do use blogs in addition to hubpages and I find bloggers cool. Similar to hub pages you can make money online from blog, just need to have an adsense accout. Remember quality, fresh content will naturally bring visitors to your post.
yes, I have a blog, it's nice to have a place to write creatively about more personal topics, I plan to change the theme soon, it's where my creative writing is. will make another one soon to use more as a daily blog.
Yes, the search engines do pick up Blogs. I use Blogger.com and do submit keywords to it. In the edit section of Blogger.com you will see a field on the bottom right for you to put in Labels. Blogger uses the word Labels for keywords.
I've heard about Wordpress. I should look into that. Blogger.com in the beginning I didn't use it properly but now I know how to make a Blog look professional. It does take time to learn like everything else.
Yes, I have blog. But I like easy to use interface at hubpages and offcourse hub provide lot of traffic for a newcomer. I do many experiments on my blogger like themes, widgets etc. Blogger is totally different to work upon. Thanks
Hi SCP, I created this topic about 4 months ago. I check it out every now and then. I do agree having at least a couple of well thought out blogs which I use to connect all of my hubs, articles, posts and so on. Once in a while I update it and over time I see the web address/URL indexed by search engines. If a web address/URL stays on the web for a long period of time and it's updated occasionally over time it does get indexed. They do help. mailxpress
Sometimes since many places you can add your sites to for publicity only accept blogs. I do not care for the blog format where you have to scroll down forever to see the entire content. I prefer going page to page if there is lots of content. Too many blogs have been taken over by scammy, spammy marketers, so it soured me on the format I guess. There are many good ones out there and the format is easy for newbies to develop.
I have several blogs, as I mention in my profile, though I find blogging can be time consuming to post regularly like you should. One blog in particular, I'm trying to stay on top of more, because I get the majority of my Adsense revenue from it. I also recently created another one surrounding link exchanges for writers, so I will definitely have to start monitoring that one closely. I find blogging to be work, just like all the other writing I do online, but it is nice to have no constraints on how you do things. However, no matter where else, and why else I write, I've discovered one thing: THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HUB!
Hi Holly, I don't copy and paste any of my work. I do have a few Blogs speaking about some of the same topics I have here at Hubpages BUT I write new and original content and have different ads posted on them. mailxpress
I have a couple of blogs. Even though I haven't updated them in while. I believe blogging is a great way to increase your presence online so I continue try and find time to put fresh new content on my blogs. The Search Engines love blogs...
I have three personal blogs and a bunch of blogs and websites that I post to or syndicate through. Besides the traffic generation ad backlinking, there are many things appropriate to blogs that don't fit well in HP.
I just opened a new Wordpress blog the other day, mainly to post backlinks for my hubs (with a short descriptive paragraph for each hub I've mentioned over there). I've got a few blogs on blogspot.com as well.
I still have a blog, and I've still been writing on it, and actually just started using it to promote a couple of my hubs (as I read about in a hub here about using them to create a backlink).
Still, I'm finding that HubPages is unique in that it allows a writer to go beyond what a typical blog allows one to. A hub is generally longer than a blog, and certainly I find a lot of creative writing here—which I will be doing some of here as well. I'm certainly having more fun hubbing than I ever had blogging, though that's not to say I won't do it anymore.
I just learned about Flixya and I created an account. I will definitely be uploading videos. I wrote to Flixya to make sure that the videos I want to upload are not considered commercial. I learned my lesson at YouTube. People flag a lot when they feel your invading their territory. Like having a billion people online is threatening. Unbelievable. mailxpress
Hello chinweike, I'm a true believer with connecting all of your works together. I create free blogs and websites and I always promote Hubpages and websites similar to Hubpages. I make sure I have my personal affiliate link on all of my work. I add to all of my work a little at a time. Every week I look back and say I accomplished a lot. It does not happen over night but it does happen. Have a great day and connect all of your hard work together. mailxpress
Hi Dale, I just read your profile here on Hubpages. I am now following you. Yes, my main niche online is learning and teaching people how to earn revenue with all free resources. The resources are out there. On occasion I write about a different topic. I find it hard to think outside of my box but every once in a while it happens. I look forward to your future blog. I'm sure I will learn something from it. Have a great weekend. mailxpress
I have a couple of blogger blogs. One of them is not specific enough to do well with AdSense, but the other has potential. None has been monetized as of today.
For use as a diary, they are unbeatable. Particularly if you've got something new going on in your life (serious hobby, medical treatments, etc.) and you want to talk about your progress. One blog I have is good for posting backlinks to my hubs.
