Like all publications, HackerNoon has topics it covers and doesn’t cover.
What we publish
We mainly cover: tech, programming, blockchain, business, startups, cybersecurity, AI, gaming, writing, and social/political topics.
Honestly though, we are very, very lenient with this. Anything you find in our tags is something we published before and is normally fair game: https://hackernoon.com/tagged.
Furthermore, we are overly strict about topics that tend to be spammy. Marketing and SEO, for example, is not something we publish too much of, because of all the spammers on the Internet. So when we do, we want it to be technical, with actionable advice, rather than general overviews with no technical knowledge or tips.
Trending tech like Crypto and AI tend to bring snake oil salesmen who just want to spam a backlink in an article or promote a shilly NFT project. We are overly strict about these topics too because of that.
If your story is rejected because of subject matter, either it is outside of our scope, or the content wasn’t deep enough to accept based on the subject matter.
