- Get all the exposure possible. Not everyone who reads my articles at HubPages will see the stuff I post at eHow. Nor will those at Xomba see my InfoBarrel articles.
- Use the multiple sites for backlinks. I try to put a link or two in various posts. I have seen that I have gotten a few visitors at HubPages from my eHow links. They may even take the time to look at my other stuff. People running across this blog may not even know about all my writings so it pays to advertise and improve search engine rankings at the same time.
- Improve online income possibilities. I have gotten about 10% of all my Adsense impressions from this blog. Without writing here, I would not have gotten those opportunities at all. I am working on increasing my total number of impressions regardless of source. Furthermore, I am earning more on eHow than HubPages this month. Had I not started writing there, I would be making a lot less.
- Diversification. You never know when a site will change the business model or go belly up. It is simply smart to not put all your eggs in one basket.
- Mental diversity. Sometimes I don't have what it takes to write a certain type of article but I can post a blog or post links at Xomba. There is no reason to do nothing when I can do something that will improve my passive income later on.
- Efficiency. If you have done a ton of research for a topic or have a good idea, why not use it in more than one location to improve your earning potential. That is just smart business sense.
As you can see, there are several reasons for writing at multiple sites. If you want to check out my article at HubPages, here is the self-serving SEO backlink (reason #2):
I think I will try to post this at a blog carnival to drive traffic. Yippee!
That's all for today. Hopefully earnings on Adsense will pick up. Otherwise, I may be about the same as last month. The second half of August was better than the first, so there is still hope. Til next time.
