How to Write an Indian Actress Hub on Hubpages
It's no secret that some of the most popular pages on Hubpages.com are nothing but picture galleries of Indian film actresses. Who knows why, but it might have something to do with India's half a billion Internet users, the enduring allure of celebrities and tabloid gossip, or the curious fact that Hubpages.com ranks higher in India than it does in the US and UK.
Though many of Hubpages' author-users have complained about these low-quality Indian actress hubs bringing down the overall quality of the site, it appears these hubs are here to stay. If you can't beat 'em, you might as well join 'em. Here's how you can get in on the fun and write about sexy Indian actresses.
Step 1: Pick an Indian Film Star
This step is likely the most difficult for Westerners who have never watched any Indian films and have no idea who's hot and who's not. Not to worry though. If an Indian actress is at least Googleable, there are people searching for photo galleries of her.
Browse Wikipedia or IMDB for lists of Indian actresses. Look for actresses who have appeared in at least 5 films. If they work in more than one language, that's even better.
The three top languages for movies in India are Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. Try to pick an actress who works in one of these languages to increase your chances of picking a winner. Actress who work in more obscure languages may not be as well known across the subcontinent. Remember your target audience for these hubs is Indians.
Step 2: Gather at Least 10 Good Movie Stills and Publicity Shots
The hottest Indian actress hubs on Hubpages often mention sexy photos, so try to find pictures that show a little skin. These are not too hard to find since traditional Indian outfits often show the midriff and cleavage.
Make sure the actress you pick has a nice face so you can post some beautiful head shots too. In India, light skin and light eyes are considered especially beautiful.
Also, be sure to caption your photos. The caption text helps your hub show up in Google Image Search results, which gives you more traffic.
Step 3: Write Something...Anything!
Even if all you can come up with is a mini biography and list of films, that's better than nothing. Most of the Indian actress hubs on Hubpages are padded out with awkwardly written filler text that sounds like it was run through a translator several times. Some Indian actress photo hubs don't even have any text at all! If you are a native English speaker and have the writing skills of a 5th grader, you've already got an advantage over the other writers, most of whom do not speak English as a first language.
