Are multiple accounts a good idea?

Thanks everyone for your warm welcome yesterday! I'm really enjoying finding my way round here.

 

In your opinion should you have multiple accounts for each niche or area of expertise, or is it working out ok for you to have one account for all your topics, if that's what you're doing? I can see the benefit of having multiple accounts but keeping track of them seems quite tricky.

I'd appreciate your insight a great deal. :) Thanks!

Just one account works for me. I'm not sure what the rules are at Wizzley about having multiple accounts--some sites frown on it, while others suggest to do it. I have enough login details to remember as it is, so just have one account per site. Plus, I'd rather keep all the revenue together to make it easier on various fronts.

I only have one account and I write about everything under the sun, so I'm not sure if that's helping or hurting me.  To me, it seems like one account would be sufficient, but I may be wrong.

Thank you!

I'd prefer to have just the one account on each site, to make things simpler, but I know some people think you should specialise within an account and I'd rather not, I think.

I have an account here where I write about outward looking things like volunteering at a museum, travel and goal-setting. I have an account elsewhere on another site where I'm working on a body of work looking at home-related subjects such as saving money, food, recipes, housekeeping, housework and DIY. I find it easier to focus on a specific niche on one site, that's all.


Described by one of my clients as 'a literary grammarian', writing, researching and reading are requirements for sanity, at least this side of the keyboard.

So if you want to write about something random and unconnected where do you put it? Or would you write on another site again?

From SEO point of view one account for every niche is always better.

It is up to you if you are able to manage the situation. Search engines' bots are checking activity on every account and having more of them means you have to show activity on all, if you want to use authority on all. Wizzley doesn't have a problem with multiple accounts, you just should not use one to referral others or otherwise game the social part of the system with liking, commenting etc.

My recommendation for beginners: focus on one account and one niche, expand if you think you can do it.

Hope this helps. Welcome aboard!

I'm sticking with the one account as well. It seems as if the more articles you have, the more traffic you get, as if traffic breeds traffic. Adding fresh content, as well as updating, seems to help.

I've found that one of the best ways to get ignored by search engines is to leave a dozen or so articles in one account and let it sit, without adding new content.

Squidoo allows multiple accounts. It makes sense if you are writing specialized and niche based articles.
