      Participate in the forums..., a lot your first six months. This is key to building up your fan base. Write quality hubs.  Make it a goal to have at least 25 hubs written in six months.  At least that many, if not more.  I am a big proponent for using HubPage.com's idea bank and their Answers divisions. You get rewarded for writing hubs in these areas, by receiving a merit award on your profile. You also get noticed by other hubbers, when answering a question in the Answer portion of Hubpages.com- especially when you WRITE an actual hub in the Answers area, instead of just leaving a brief answer.   It is also a great idea to learn about choosing the right title names, keyword density, and how to use backlinks to back link to a social marketing website such as; RedGage.com.

      The best possible advice I can offer is to become a follower of mine. Jokes apart, if you are here to make money then learn two things:

      1. Keyword research
      2. SEO

      And welcome to HubPages!smile

      Avoid the liberals... they'll tax your words to level the playing field.

      Take HubPages seriously and do not post rude comments.  Leave comments when you read an interesting Hub and respect other Hubbers. Flag spam as spam. Have fun!

    You Mean You Joined Here Calling Yourself 'Great Advice' and you're asking us for it? roll Great!!
    That's a bit one-way-trafficish isn't it? hmm

    Probably best to start out by Spelling Hubber properly first smile

    And on that note...stay away from the political and religious forums unless you like to get into heated debates that can quickly fall into mud-slinging lol

    Welcome! You will enjoy the hubbers' community.
    Visit the learning center and also take a good look at the hubs that win at every contest. Begin earnestly with an excellent title and keep hubbing. GOOD LUCK!

    Welcome hubpages , my advice for you is to write quality hubs with good seo and interact positive in this forums.

    Listen before you write and see what other writers in your nich are covering (plus their format). Follow other Hubbers you find to be useful & leave comments on their Hubs. Have a strategy or plan for what types of hubs you will be creating and put the pen to the paper!

    Post just to post. Only a few tidbits of valuable information here.  I made a Hub a few months back.  It had a PR3 and ranked really well the SERPs. In wll as mostly promoted from within not from the outside with back links. 
    Try and get involved in Hubpage community.  That is the key.

    Welcome, I think you are off to a good start because asking questions and talking to other hubbers is just the kind of thing that will keep you writing and get you where you'd like to be on HubPages.
    The community atmosphere really helped me and gave me the encouragement that I needed to refocus and keep those Hubs coming! The 30 day challenge - although difficult will really get you going fast. It gets frustrating at times, you lose your train of thought with so many other things to do but it helps if you have a group of followers who count on you and look forward to your feedback when they publish a hub. I have met so many wonderful people here, a diverse group of writers from all walks of life and from everywhere in the world. We are all writers, so with that in common, it is a great starting place. Best of luck and whatever you do: Keep writing!

    HEY! New hubber here! I wonder, if i can simply just choose a topic and research it and then write many hubs about that topic. But What if I choose the wrong topic? Wouldn't that wasted my time and effort?
