Hello! I just joined hubpages a few days ago to try my hand at blogging. I figure most of my hubs will end up being more of the 'how to' variety since I create many things. I have put up two hubs that I would like to share.
http://hubpages.com/hub/Making-roses-wi … m-frosting
Are these helpful? Do they make sense? Are there too many photos? Not enough? Anything else I can do to help? Any input would be appreciated!
Okay, let's start with some of the basic stuff.
(a) quality type hubs are written for a length of 600+ words.
(b) utilize as many tools as you can when creating a hub but try not to make look cluttered. (polls, more pictures, amazon capsules)
(c) keywords/tags are very important and should range between 9-15
(d) try to add fresh content(RSS feeds or News feeds). This will always keep your hub fresh with content so that GOOGLE crawlers/bots come to your hub, because it recognizes new content.
I'm putting some links below, so as to help you with your improvements.
Frogdropping: She produced two excellent reads for new hubbers.
Darkside: He wrote a lot of hubs about using HubPages.
It is important to know that there is a lot more and other good reads can be found by Nelle Hoxie, Ryankett, Thisisoli, Relache, Shadesbreath and so many others.
I hope this helps. Please do enjoy your time here.
Edit: Sunforged can help you to learn SEO functions and the benefits of learning them. An awesome resource for those who want to become successful. Also, check out Misha.
Ok, I added more tags to my hubs. I also signed up with Amazon and was approved today. I like how that one works! I really like that I was able to put specific ads for vanilla beans in the my vanilla extract hub. Several people had asked me where I get those and now there is a link directly to the product right in my article. Very useful!
Also, after looking at some other how-to pages I decided to re-arrange my rose hub. I do like it better now!
I expect I'll get better at it as I go. I'll keep looking at what other people are doing and maybe someday I'll even make a little cash. Thanks for the info!

I just logged in and it shows every single one of my hubs highlighted in pink, to need review. The majority of these were well trafficked and featured hubs or editor's choice. Did something happen? I tried looking in...

I'm sorry if this post offends anybody, but I am really getting tired of people who basically are non English speakers showing up, throwing a hub together without expending any effort to read the forums or the learning...

Google says no nudity. These hubs violating policy. The so called authors of these hubs are very clever. They become fan of any one and in return they get fans. Thus they have maximum number of fans. As these galeries...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My...

I just wrote a hub on making money with HubPages but wanted to make sure it's ok before publishing. I know you are not supposed to mention what you are earning on HP, but is it ok to use titles like 'How To Earn $1000...

So I'm replying to a comment on my hub and upon scrolling through the hub (I always check for errors or how I can improve), I see the related hubs section. There are five hubs there including one of mine. What...
