Im currently a college student and discovered hubpages and thought how it would be intresting to try and figure it out. Ok i created my first hub and still not very sure about the whole google adsense so they pay you for advertising? anyhow im not sure if my first hub is up to par with everyone elses but i think its a start. If anyone would like to check mine out and leave comments on how to better improve mine or the ones to come i would apperciat it and try to return the favor thanks!
Here is an excellent guide for you to read:
Welcome to hubpages
Hi there, I just had a look at your hub and have a few comments:
You've got the right idea, my advice is to break up your writing into paragraphs to make it easier to follow than one big block of text.
Also, don't forget about things like spell check, grammar, and using capitals at the beginning of your sentences, and if you're writing a factual article it's better to avoid using the first person when possible.
It sounds really picky, but it will make you look that much more professional in your writing.
Hope this helps,
Welcome to HubPages and good luck!
Best advice I can give you is do your best to write about what you know, but be original. Fresh, relevant content is always your best asset here. Also, when posting comments, either on another author's hub or in the forum, push yourself to relate and contribute something useful to the subject matter. I learned that the hard way, the more efficient and original your presence here is, the better!
Hope this helps,
Read, read and then when you think you are done reading read some more. There are tons of hubs here that will help you get through the starting process here.
Just take your time and you will get things right.
BTW, welcome to Hubpages

Have fun hubbing
I can recommend many hubs by 'Darkside' and 'Mark Knowles'. Just try searching 'hubpages', 'keywords', 'seo', 'tagging', 'backlinking', 'make money' and similar terms in the search box..... there is some really great stuff. I published my first hub 5 months ago and still learn everytime I read.

I published my first hub today. The first comment I got remarked that my hub was funny. It's not. I can see that maybe a scan of the first paragraph might lead a casual reader to think that the hub may be going in an...
