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.


Hindi lanugage film star Aishwarya Rai is considered the most famous Indian actress of all time.  She is probably the only Indian actress that most Westerners have ever heard of. In India, she is famed for her light skin and gray eyes.

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.

The Indian actress hub phenomenon is a HubPages institution, so good of you to teach your fellow hubbers how to cash in on the party! lol.

Do you think the real writers of the site would complain about the Indian actress photo galleries if they were written in fluent English? Part of me thinks Indian actress hubs wouldn't be such a target of vitriol if they were at least held to the same QAP standards as newly published hubs. But then again, I think it's just resentment that something so shallow can be successful, while well-written and well-researched articles get hardly any traffic.

To be honest, I used to resent how "light"content on HubPages always out-ranked my in-depth hubs. Then I wised up and moved my serious writing off of HP. Not my problem any more.

Internet surfers aren't visiting Hubpages for high-fallutin journalism and in-depth research anyway. They come here for entertainment and light content. Once you realize that, it's hard to be mad at the system. All I can do is work within the system and abide by the TOU.

I do wonder why HubPages allows so many hubs written in broken English to stay on the site. If those of us who are fluent in English have trouble reading them, imagine how much harder it would be for a non-fluent speaker to read another non-fluent speaker's garbled text. I don't care if they're trying really hard and doing the best they can. If the output is barely understandable, it should not be published!

Interesting way to capitalize on search traffic from around the world. Looking at my stats, a number of my account's views come from Google.co.in, so I tried my hand at creating an India-themed math article.
