Have been an active member at HUBPages.com, a popular online writing community, since 2013. The HP editors always encourage the writers to publish evergreen content, which is content that’s sort of “timeless”, meaning write about a topic today that 5 to 10 years later, people will still be searching for information about it. In other words, there is a great probably that your articles will be found via organic search for years to come and will generate residual income for you.
As of today, my author’s profile* shows nineteen (19) HUBs or articles. My pages get some traffic but they aren’t viral. The content is stuff like history, movies, books, real estate, etc. Those are evergreen. Right?
My fellow freelance writer, Julie-Ann Amos, who is also a professional writer, has published almost 600 articles. She picked a topic that was so off-the-wall!! It’s evergreen alright!
She wrote a Part 1, a Part 2, and a Funniest Videos!
Bet you can’t guess what it is!
Must say that when the site owners said they encouraged evergreen material, this particular topic never occurred to me.
