How To Create A Good Profile Page

    I have been here a month now, my profile page is pretty poor as I have never really put any thought into it.  As I've looked around the site though I notice most people have very long profile pages with links to quite a few of their hubs.  So I am thinking maybe I need to get my act together and spruce mine up a little.  So what should I be looking to put on my profile page?

      If you're here to write to earn a passive income, think along the lines of how the hubbers that earn the most write theirs - business like. Check out their profiles.

      If you're here writing to have fun, write it more personal. And if you're here to showcase your fiction, poetry etc I'd go (again) for something more serious.

      Have a look around - go with what suits your purpose the best. That's my take on it smile

      The links to hubs on your profile page are mainly to improve the ranking of those hubs because the profile page is usually the strongest page a Hubber has. But it also serves as a way of guiding visitors along all your hubs, that is also a good thing.

      Your profile should be attractive enough so that people become a follower. They need to get an idea of who they are following and why: can they learn from this person about making money online or do they share similar interests? This is really a first step in getting more followers too.

    Profile page doesn't have to be long - check out relache's, or mine - they are both short. Sally's Trove has a nice one, too. Patty Inglish has a longer page, as does Enelle Lamb. just cruise around and find some you like. It all depends how much you want to say about yourself...

    I checked out your profile and yes, it is quite short. When I was new here I also had a very short profile as I didn't know any better.  But I found out that I get a lot of traffic through my profile, so I revised it a bit.  Now it includes some links to my hubs and those hubs I featured in my profile get more traffic than those which are not.  You are welcome to read my profile.  I hope it helps

    I don't have any links to my hubs in my profile, maybe I should add a few...
