    I have just been awarded my 1 year accolade here on hubpages and I am gong to create a Hub with the best Hubs for new Hubbers.  I already have a few in mind but am looking for suggestions.  You are welocme to include your own Hubs or Hubs by other Hubbers which have helped you.

      Me too, just got my 1 year accolade here. I guess for new hubbers the most helpful hubs is the how to start earning on hubpages for they really need to know how. And at same time tutorial about the site. It would be very helpful

      Darkside has a whole series of Hubs on  Hubbing.  Most were written a long time ago but IMO they're still the best. 

      I especially like these, on Capsules and Table of Contents:

      You really have to be patient. Gaining traffic takes time. If you are looking for more followers, I suggest being active in the forums, seeking out other Hubbers, comment on their Hubs, that sort of thing, and follow those writers that you really like. In time, the followers will add up, and the views will start to build.

        Thanks Anna.. I try to be active in some forums and commenting to other writers work.I just didn't understand what was causing such a slow traffic. But I guess I will have to wait and see .. But now or in future if you may have suggestions please do let me know.

      I agree with Anna, geting views takes time, just keep writing Hubs.  Having lots of followers is nice but it won't really get you views, most your traffic and income will come from Google searches.

      I will include a good Hub about SEO and getting traffic.

      I looked at your Hubs and the one 'Healthy diet that can help you maintain a great s*x life!' MIGHT cause you problems with adsense, I would suggest replacing the word s*x as it might be considered adult which adsense doesn't like.

        Hey SpaceShanty.. I will have to take your word on that, traffic does take time to build up and I really appreciate your honest suggestion about certain changes.I just made those changes . Thanks a lot!

          The key to online traffic is keywords and using titles which people are actually searching for.
          your Hub 'How to explore Istanbul,Turkey while on a budget!' is very good.

          If you Google 'Istanbul' at the bottom of the page you get 'related searched', this is what people are actually typing into Google, try and include some of these phrases in your Hub without it looking and sounding artifical.

          Here are the results for 'Istanbul'
          Searches related to Istanbul

          istanbul holidays

          istanbul underwater hotel

          istanbul history

          istanbul airport

          istanbul hotels

          istanbul tripadvisor

          istanbul takeaway

          istanbul beaches

    a hub where it is explained how to write high quality hubs, which are the important issues, could be interesting

    This isn't a hub, but I found this yesterday and it's really been helping me learn how to use keyword search for hubs.

    Using the right keywords can be important to get your hubs found.

    I also like this post because it suggests useful tools like Google Keyword Planner and Google Trends.

    Adding a hub to your "best of" list on formatting and style would be super helpful! I have had some formatting and style issues with hubs, and I'm sure other newbs have as well. For instance, I didn't realize that an article in all bold or italic letters causes a lower hub score, or can even prevent publishing in some instances.

    With formatting I still can't figure out why some photos appear larger than others regardless of what size they really are, and this takes up a lot of time, and hurts the pages style sometimes.

    It has also taken me six months to realize that I can place two blocks of texts side by side for comparison. I have no idea what other tricks there are with formatting, and am not sure how to optimise the formatting style for the best results.

    I still can't figure out the difference between a video hub and a regular hub, and how to make them work to my advantage, and when to use which one?

    If maybe you could add hubs that discuss these things to your list of best hubs, or if anybody could point me to one of these hubs I would be very grateful.

    I am not interested in gaining capital, only readers. Thanks so much for listening, and hopefully considering!

    I am looking forward to your hub Space Shanty, on this subject, helping Hubbers with their traffic is a great idea.

    I have a recommendation - Susana S has written a great hub on making money on HubPages and another on Amazon. I have found them very useful.

    New Hubbers should write about things they know a lot about to start off.  It makes the learning process of publishing Hubs easier.  Then, evergreen topics, such as recipes, travel hot spots, crafts, financial topics, etc.

      Can you share any Hubs which have helped you?

        I wrote a Hub about what I learned at HubPages during the first year that would be very helpful to new Hubbers.  It's called "Using a Hub Milestone to Make Hubs More Searchable and Accessible ", see:  http://rocknj.hubpages.com/hub/Using-a- … Accessible

        There are plenty of other Hubs out there by others regarding what they have learned, so newbies don't make the same mistakes.
