12 Mistakes I Made as a Newbie on Hubpages

1.Writing poor quality content

While starting out, I was confounded by the multitude of capsules for creating hubs. I was used to writing essays in continuous prose. The articles were usually in lengthy paragraphs. I often did not cover my topics adequately. The articles were often too short and vague. Hubpages recommends writers to write articles that are between 700 and 1250 words long. This ensures that the topic is adequately covered and offers unique insights into a topic.

Hubpages provides excellent and varied capsules for creating stellar evergreen hubs. These capsules include text, image, map, poll, table, quiz among others. I highly recommend new hubbers to take their time and learn about the usage of each capsule. This will save them a lot of time and at the same time enable them to produce high quality content that is likely to be featured. Featured content will attract readership and revenue.

High quality content will earn the hubber respect, increase their readership and ultimately increase their earnings. New hubbers should strive to create high quality evergreen content.

2. Lack of adequate research

I admit that I did not carry out adequate research before writing my hubs. Some pro hubbers are guilty of this. My articles often seemed to regurgitate what was found elsewhere on the web. When a hubber does not conduct ample research they will often end up with atrocious articles that will be buried under a heap of stellar articles. You hub will not stand a chance! In the patent for their search engine, Google states that older articles will have higher rankings than new articles. In order to be able to compete with these established stellar articles, one needs to provide novel, useful and insightful content to their readers.Well researched articles enable a new hubber to become an authority in their chosen niche. Fellow hubbers will recognize this and they will read and recommend your work to others.

There are numerous research tools available for research on the Web. There are dozens of free and paid tools. Google's tools such as Keyword Planner, Adwords and Yoast are quite popular. I do use some of them from time to time. I have been researching Google’s Adsense program which I find quite fascinating.

3.Low resolution images and unattributed images

When writing my articles, I often used low resolution images. These images were often pixelated and very blurry. As you can probably guess, many of hubs did get featured due to this. Hubpages requires hubbers to have high quality images on their hubs. High resolution images make a hub captivating to a reader. Humans are very visual beings, they are likely to be drawn to an article with high resolution pictures than one with blurry images.

Another critical mistake I made while including images in my hubs was using copyrighted images. New hubbers should understand that using copyrighted images will land them in trouble with the owners. Hubpages recommends one to use their own images or use images that are free of copyright.

Your own images will lend some authenticity to your hubs. If you do not have images of your own, you can use images from Creative Commons or sites that offer copyright free images such as Pexels and Unsplash. I personally use the two and they have high resolution images that I absolutely love.

When you choose to use copyrighted images, both Google and Hubpages recommend attributing those images properly. Attribution means acknowledging that the images are not your own and then stating the source or the owner.


4. Randomly following other hubbers

New hubbers will often be tempted to randomly follow popular hubbers. I was guilty of this while starting out. I have recognized my folly and cleaned up my act. In order to gain trust and respect among fellow hubbers in the Hubpages community, you should be genuinely interested in their work.

Read their work and leave a comment or question if necessary. Fellow hubbers will appreciate this and they are likely to check out your work and share with their friends and family.

Fan mail should be used sparingly. Mail someone and leave useful comments after reading their articles. I really appreciate the love I have had from fellow hubbers such as eurofile and miebakagh57

Randomly following fellow hubbers while expecting them to reciprocate is a major turn off for many hubbers. Do not do this! Establish your reputation as a good writer first and others will follow you.

5. Failing to respond to comments and queries

As a new hubber, I often failed to comment to fellow hubbers’ comments on time (I am on a different time zone though, I see your comments several hours later).This often show a lack of interest and it irritates other hubbers. Make sure you respond to comments on time. This simple act will enable a new hubber to create relationships and get support from the community.

6. Asking questions that have been already answered

New hubbers are likely to stumble around before they find their footing on Hubpages. They will often ask numerous questions on forums. The most popular ones are questions about making money on Hubpages and driving traffic to their hubs. These queries and questions have been covered exhaustively by the Learning Center and veteran hubbers.

I have now learned to visit the Learning Center and forums first before asking a question or creating a forum. Many hubbers abhor answering questions that have already been answered thoroughly.

7.Using too many Amazon product capsules

This is a very thorny issue among many hubbers, newbies and veteran alike. We are often tempted to use as many Amazon capsules as possible in our hubs. However, Amazon capsules should be used sparingly. Using too many of them will lead to slower loading pages. This will often drive readers away fro your page.

Excessive use of Amazon product capsules often make the article look promotional and unappealing.

Hubpages recommends the use relevant Amazon product capsules. They should be ideally located in the body of the hub. Including them at the beginning of the article will often have them automatically moderated. Also including them at they very bottom of the article is a faux pas They should have custom descriptions that tie them to the article.

Amazon product capsules should have a minimum of 300 words per product included. This ensures that the included product is relevant and adequately covered in the article. Readers are likely to purchase a product that has been amply described.

8. Including irrelevant links

Including links is a great way to increase traffic to your other articles or sites. I often made the mistake of including irrelevant links to articles I have published elsewhere or to other sites. You should only link to other articles only if they are relevant to the hub you are writing. A simple test for this is to ask yourself the following:

Will this link provide additional information (insights) to the reader?

Hubpages discourages external links to commercial sites. External links often drive away readers from Hubpages. New hubbers should be careful with them and use them only sparingly. Internal links to similar or related hubs from your work or other hubbers’ work is highly encouraged.

Other hubbers are likely to appreciate your links and reciprocate by adding your links. This will ultimately increase traffic and build strong ties among the hubbers.

In this article I will include a few links to fellow hubbers who have been with me on this incredible journey

10. Submitting Articles to Niche sites prematurely

As a newbie on Hubpages, I really wanted to succeed quickly. I wanted to make money fast and become popular. I would write low quality articles and immediately expect them to be featured. I would then submit the featured articles to niche sites after a few days. I did not realize that for an article to be submitted to a niche site, it requires to be vetted and thoroughly screened by editors.

My advice to new hubbers is to be patient and follow due process. Patience is priceless. Wait for several months before submitting your hubs to niche sites.


9. Copying content from other source

Plagiarism is a very serious infraction on the Internet and in real life. You should never ever copy another person’s work and pass it off as your own. Doing this will get you banned from Hubpages and other sites. It will also ruin your online reputation(Trust me on this).

New hubbers will be tempted to copy from other sources or even their own work and try to get it published on Hubpages. I tried publishing my previous work and got a severe warning from the editors.

When one duplicates content, Google will often flag the duplicate content and lower its rankings.

As a new hubber, strive to create high quality evergreen content. Fellow hubbers and Hubpages state that articles that become stellar articles are those that are written with passion.

Hubbers have often had their articles scrapped and copied to other sites and many have opened disputes about the issue. Kindly do not add to the growing heap of copyright cases by plagiarizing.

If you are passionate about something or you have valuable expertise in a certain field, take time and write about it.

I am passionate about a lot of things. I strive to write about my hobbies, interests or my work.

12. Limiting readership with a niche topic

Hubpages recommends one to write for a panoramic audience. This ideally means that you should have articles on a variety of subjects. Different readers are interested in different topics. While I was starting out I focused on recipe hubs. They had significant traffic but I later realized that not everyone was into cooking. In the future, I will include some recipes hubs.

You can mix things up a little bit by having some news hubs, some evergreen hubs and some recipe hubs if you like. This will give your readers a variety to choose from and they will often return to read them. Linking similar hubs is also a great way of attracting and retaining readership.


11. Stuffing articles with too many keywords

You often be tempted to stuff your titles and hubs with as many keywords as possible in order to increase traffic. There are two major reasons you should not do this. The first is that, Google and other search engines will automatically rank your articles lower. Readers do not appreciate articles stuffed with keywords. They will skim over it and if does not meet their needs, they will often move on.

Endeavor to write for people not for search engines.


Conclusion

These are the 12 mistakes I made while starting out on Hubpages. I sincerely hope you will learn form them and avoid them. I recommend you to do the following in order to succeed as a hubber.

First create high quality evergreen content that can not be found elsewhere on the web. Second do adequate research using free and paid tools such as Google Keyword Planners, Adwords, Adsense and Yoast etc.

Third, build relationships with other hubbers through reading their content, linking to their hubs, following them and commenting on their hubs. Fourth, include high resolution images or pictures in your hubs. Fifth, raid the Learning Center and discover how to create stellar articles, how to drive traffic to your articles, how to sign up for an Amazon Associate account among other things.

Hubpages is one of the most amazing writing platform. I love the fact that it is free for anyone to join and that one can make money from doing what they love writing about. The community is very welcoming and supportive.

      I have had a tech-cation that lasted for two years. I really felt like I was missing out. I am an tech addict and I felt tortured at the time.

      I usually take breaks for several hours to help rejuvenate my body.

      Excellent, and exactly what I mean. But the plus side is that one should still take a break online or from the internet. You should from time to time check your mailbox.

      The break is like when your company approved you annually holiday, and you go off far from the work environment. Where do you think do you go? South Africa? Good. Get really lost away, and thank you.

      Hi, Jeff, thanks for weighing in. In spite of all the exercise and healthy eating habit, one still had to take a break online. No matter how you stretch and exercise, sitting long before the computer and hitting of the keyboard have a negative effect on the back, wrist, neck, and eyes. A holiday from all these pay in good health. You are always welcomed.

      I am sorry to hear about your connectivity woes Fiberesima. I know how hard it is to stay still day in day out writing. I had some goals and I am used to using computers for long periods of time. The secret is to eat healthy, exercise, drink lots of water and get adequate rest. You will always be refreshed when you embark on writing.

      Hello, Jeff, you are welcomed. Iamconstntly experiencing internet connectivity issues and electricity blackouts in my area. That is the major challenge. But prior to that, I took a month's break from the online venture to refresh.

      It is alarming that when you sit in front of your laptop or computer and hitting on the keyboard hour after hour, a time will come you'll destroy your health. So from January to November 2018 is a long time doing work daily on HubPages. I need to take the break as a holiday. Thank you, and happy new year 2019.

      Hey, Jeff, I did not know you ask me the question: what mistakes I mad as a newbie on HubPages. There many like the mistakes you and any other newbies did. But the most serious I made is that I did not post comments or respond to comments on my very first article on how to make passive income online.

      All subsequent articles I publish likewise meet the same criteria. No comments on my part. I was not even participating in the forum for years until this year, I read a story about why our profile goes down.

      Thereafter, I began to post on discussions, comments, daily on my feeds page, articles, forum and so on. My profile has sow from 30 to 50.

      Again, I made up my mind to post a new article two times in the month. Just the previous last week, I lost 4 days on Hubpages due to no fault of mine. I am now daily addicted to doing all my work. Thanks.

      You're right about evergreen articles. Every article I write must have evergreen potential. My area of expertise is auto repair and maintenance services and everyone wants to save money doing the repair themselves. With respect to plagiarism, you're not a serious writer if you waste time copying someone else's work and try to re-word it. When I write, I just start putting down whatever pops into my mind. Afterwards, I re-read what I wrote and start making changes and perhaps change the order. Then I incorporate pictures and perhaps links to other articles I wrote that the reader maybe interested in further reading. I spent a lot of time doing IT systems design and development work and treat articles like subroutines.

      I also focused on recipe articles when I was just starting here. I like cooking and I like to share what I like to cook with others. However, these were barely getting any traffic and I was told that when people are looking to make some dish, they usually go to more reputable sites that are known for their recipes. What kinds of recipes did you use to post?

      Hi, Erudite Scholar, these mistakes are common to all hubbers. However, one thing that catches my attention is plagiarism. That is why I usually research my articles well and write in my own words. Then, at most, less than 20% of the words in the articles as plagiarism is considered low a score. Some words or phrases are so common that it floods every mind. For instance, "with that said," or likes cannot be count as plagiarism. I am always enjoying your articles. Thank you.
