Hub Shortcuts I Use
From one Hubber to another....
Answering more than one comment about your Hub....
To answer more than one comment at a time I answer the first one, highlight and copy the pen name of the next one, go to the top of my Hub and click "Edit" next I click "Done Editing" go to "Comments" and start the next one by pasting the pen name into the next Comment Box.
While I have on occasion put several pen names into a Comment Box and answered both, it is more personal to answer each comment separately.
Going back and forth to different Hubs I have written....
I like to use the "My Account" section to go back and forth to my Hubs, although at times I use the Search Box. Going to "Title" heading I use the down arrow if the Hub I want is in the first of my Hubs alphabetically, or the up arrow, if it is in the last half of the alphabet, then I scroll to the Hub's title by dragging the indicator to that approximate part of the alphabetical listings..
With over 730 Hubs, I sometimes have to use the Search Box and search by the subject of my Hub because I cannot recall the specific title.
Using the Search Box to add links to new Hubs....
If you are not using links to old Hubs before you initially publish a new Hub, you are losing the best chance and timing for getting more views for your older Hubs. Enter your pen name in the Search Box along with the subject of the new Hub to see what you may have written in the past that could be added as one or more links to your new Hub.
This is especially beneficial, if you regularly write poems, limericks, recipes, product reviews, etc. because doing so increases the visibility of your older Hubs. HubPages Team is not always good at highlighting your past Hubs even when they are a nice fit with your latest Hub, so watch your own back on this one.
Key Word Placement in your Hub titles....
If your Hub is about Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year's, put that word first in your Hub title. The same goes for any Hub you write which can be immediately pin pointed by a word from the title.
For example, I recently wrote a Hub about writing my annual Christmas Letter and titled it "Writing The Christmas Letter" but I should have titled it "Christmas Letter Writing." Learn about this for yourself by looking at what Hubs the HubPages Team (or HP's computers) list as also of possible interest in their add-ons to your Hubs.
I use My Profile to take quick looks at my recent Hubs and Comments....
By going to My Profile and then to My Activity I can get quick access to my most recent Hubs or my most recent comments. If I remember about how long ago I published an older Hub, or wrote a comment, I can go to that portion of my activity and find what I am looking for without having to recall an exact title of the Hub in question.
Learning From Your Header Columns....

Taking advantage of the fine tools HubPages has provided is easy, interesting, and potentially productive. Here's one Hubber's take on doing so.
