Advice from a New Hubber to a New Hubber--HubPages--Tips to Help Those New to the Community

Updated on August 30, 2012

Welcome to HubPages!!

Welcome to a Wonderful Community of Supportive and Encouraging Writers!!

On a personal note, while on HubPages, I have been so fortunate to have had the pleasure of meeting wonderful people that have encouraged many (including myself) to continue on with their writing as well as those that took the time to answer questions to assist newcomers. THANK-YOU!!!

Nearly 3 weeks and 30 Hubs later, I am by no means an expert on HubPages, however, I have learned a lot of information and hope to help those that are just starting out.

*Please note, as I find more information, I do plan on updating this Hub.

You Just Signed Up--Now What?

Congratulations you just took your first step in joining HubPages.

Now what?

First read through the Learning Center to become acquainted with the rules as well as read through a ton of information to help you succeed.

Screenshot: Preview

Next when you have become acquainted with HubPages, now it is time to write.

Start writing your first Hub.

  • Be sure to write on a topic that you know and that you are passionate about because it will show through in your writing as well as make your first Hub easier to write.
  • Be sure your title reflects what your Hub is about.
  • Be sure to read through your Hub for any grammatical, spelling, as well as check for any homonym mistakes for example: there or their.
  • Remember this is your first Hub and the first impression you will make on HubPages. I find it easier to check for mistakes by previewing the Hub.
  • Add pictures as well as other content and be sure to cite all of your sources. More information on image use can be found in the Learning Center.

Screenshot: Add Summary and Tags
Screenshot: Add Summary and Tags
  • Create a Summary and Add more tags that relate specifically to your Hub.
  • Do not just add tags that will attract visitors through search engines because that can be deceptive to your readers and can hurt your reputation as a writer.
  • Do NOT Publish your Hub just yet.

Research other Hubs similar to the topic you are writing about.

Screenshot: Search Topic
Screenshot: Search Topic

Read through Hubs that are similar to the topic you are writing about.

  • Be sure to comment on the Hub as well as rate the Hub if you find the information or the Hub itself Interesting, Useful, Awesome, Beautiful etc.
  • Please be politically correct and respectful at all times. The writer took the time to share the information with the Community.
  • Remember any comments that you write, the followers of that writer along with the followers of that Hub will be able to read them. You don't want to give a bad impression.
  • Take note of what you liked about the Hub other than the writing: example: other content such as pictures, videos, links etc.
  • If you really like the writer and are interested in their Hubs, follow the writer and that way you will be alerted to any new Hubs that they publish and you may never know, but they may start following you as well.
  • If you find a Hub that you think your readers will find interesting or if you feel that Hub extends the information your Hub offers, be sure to link it to your Hub.
  1. At the bottom of each Hub, click on link to this page.
  2. Copy the URL,
  3. Edit your HubPage
  4. Use the add link capsule
  5. Click edit and then Paste the URL in the provided area.

Screenshot: Link Page
Screenshot: Link Page

Now re-read through your Hub, look again for errors, add any new content as well as links you found useful. Preview your Hub so that you have an idea of what your published Hub will look to those reading. When done, Publish your Hub.

Great Your Published--Now What?

Now it is time to gain Followers.

If you published a fantastic Hub, you may gain followers that way also some writers will share your Hub with their followers and some may even share your Hub on social media sites.

There are also many kind and experienced writers that will follow you if you are new and respectful to others.

Other tips, post a link to your profile on social media sites such as Facebook and/or Twitter. If people like your Hub they will be sure to share the link.

However, one of the best ways to draw new followers in the beginning, is to Hop Hubs.


Hub Hopping

At the top of your screen click on Your Name then my account.

Screenshot: Help us out, Hop some Hubs
Screenshot: Help us out, Hop some Hubs
Screenshot: Classic Hopper
Screenshot: Classic Hopper


Similar rules do apply to Hub Hopping as they did during research.

  • Be sure to rate the Hub if you find the information or the Hub itself Interesting, Useful, Awesome, Beautiful etc. and definitely comment on those you liked. Writers do like to receive positive feedback and to know how people feel about their writing.
  • Please be politically correct and respectful at all times. The writer took the time to share the information with the Community.
  • Remember any comments that you write, the followers of that writer along with the followers of that Hub will be able to read them. You don't want to give a bad impression.
  • If you liked the Hub share the Hub with your followers.
  • If you really like the writer and are interested in their Hubs, follow the writer and that way you will be alerted to any new Hubs that they publish and you may never know, but they may start following you as well.


Note that by rating articles, commenting on other Hubs, replying to comments on your own Hub, Hub Hopping, will all help you to raise your Hubber Score.


New Changes to Hub Hopping 8/30/2012

HubPages now gives the options of how to Hop Hubs!!! If you feel confident in rating Hubs by Substance, Organization, Grammar and Mechanics, you can choose that option or if you would rather rate a Hub like you would for those you follow you can now click on the option of Access Classic Hopper!

Screenshot:  Option to Access Classic Hopper.
Screenshot: Option to Access Classic Hopper.

Ask Legitimate Questions

Click on the HubPages logo at the top of the screen.

This is your feed and where you can see what Hubs others have shared along with comments on Hubs you commented on and other things of interest.

At the top of the screen you will see:

Screenshot: Ask Question
Screenshot: Ask Question

This is where you can post a question to the HubPages Community or start a forum thread.

*Note: Do NOT post links to your Hubs or your Profile this is considered a big no, no!!

However, asking the question as well as responding to the answers you are provided may help you gain more followers. Again, ALWAYS be respectful regardless of what others may say. You don't want to get band from HubPages!!

Great You Have Followers--Now What?

Awesome Job!! You are well on your way, but there is much more to do. Hub Hopping, Reading Hubs of those you are Following, Commenting, Rating and Sharing, as well as posting as many well written Hubs a day that you can manage will lead you to continued success. It does take a lot of work and dedication!!

After you have Published a few (around 5 or so) well polished and thought out Hubs, now you may want to consider Applying for Google Adsense. This is one way to make make money on HubPages. Read this article first through theLearning Center and make sure you read through the terms and conditions before applying.

Google Adsense

Apply to Google Adsense.

Do NOT feel discouraged if Google Adsense does not accept your application at first.They will send you an e-mail explaining why you were not accepted. Be sure to follow the information provided in the e-mail. For example, you may need to polish your Hubs, check for any violations in the terms and conditions, or possibly need to publish more Hubs. They are looking for marketable content. If all conditions are met, apply again.

You may receive approval however, your account is still under review. Log into your Google Adsense account. You may see a red banner explaining that you are still under review. They may ask you to place blank ads in your HTML code on a few of your Hubs so that they are able to easily review your content.

After the review process, you may be accepted. But you must ALWAYS abide by the terms and conditions and NEVER click on any Google Ads on your Hubs!!!

Once accepted, you will need to configure your Google Adsense account.

  • Click on Your Name, then my account,
  • Click on Earnings, then Settings
  • Click on Configure

Screenshot: Earnings--I whited out my personal information.
Screenshot: Earnings--I whited out my personal information.


After you have been accepted into Google Adsense, you will be able to use the HubPages Ad Program, and apply to the eBay Program as well as the Amazon Program.

Please note the Amazon Program is NOT allowed in some states.

Please read the terms and conditions of each of the programs prior to applying and be sure to comply with the terms and conditions.

Screenshot: Groups
Screenshot: Groups
Screenshot: Accolades
Screenshot: Accolades

Great I am Signed Up--Now What?

Start adding Groups for your Hubs. This is a way keep your Hubs organized as well as when your Hub is Published a few of your Hubs in the same group will appear at the bottom of your Hub.

For example: If you write Poetry, create a group by the name of Poetry. Then in Assign Hubs to Groups drag the poem to that folder. When a poem is published at the bottom of that Hub there will be links to other poetry that you published. This is a great way of allowing others to read similar Hubs that you Publish.

Begin earning Accolades. Accolades are badges for reaching certain milestones on HubPages and can be earned in many different ways. Including by not limited to: commenting on others Hubs, writing a certain number of Hubs, page views of your Hubs, as well as contributing to the community.

Done, Done, and Done--Now What?

  • Continue to Publish quality (not quantity) Hubs
  • Continue to Add content or Edit previously Published Hubs
  • Continue Linking your Hubs with Others in the Community
  • Continue Hub Hopping
  • Continue Commenting and Rating Other Hubs
  • Continue to Show Loyalty to those you Follow
  • Continue to Share Hubs
  • Continue to Show Loyalty to those that are Following you
  • Continue to Reply to comments and/or messages.
  • Continue to Gain New Followers
  • Continue to Show Respect to Everyone--respect is earned!!

Conclusion

Remember this is NOT a get rich quick scheme!! It takes a lot of work and dedication! If writing is your passion than follow your dreams and NEVER give up!! All of your Hard Work will eventually pay off in the long run!

I hope this Hub gave you some information to help you become acquainted with HubPages. THANK-YOU for taking the time to read this; please feel free to comment and suggestions are always welcomed--HAPPY HUBBING!!!

      Fantastic advice. I've been here about a year but I can always learn new things. This site requires some persistence but it eventually pays dividends. Great hub!

      Patty, Wow! This was a Great read!

      This is an excellent piece of writing. Amazing, to be quite frank with you.

      I loved every word--and the lay-out was superb. Interesting, in-depth, helpful, and very informative. Great job.

      Voted up and all the choices because you deserve it.

      You have such a gift for writing. Just keep writing and good things are bound to happen to you.

      Sincerely,

      This is an interesting and wonderful article. I am not a hubber, but was going through hubpages to get articles like this before I start. I was on a very excellent page which connected to this one and seriously speaking, despite the fact the writer claims to be 3 days old on hubpages, he gave wonderful and excellent tips.

      https://hubpages.com/community/The-Hubbing-Experie...

      But this hub of yours sums it up and it is definitely from an experience writer who has been here for a while. Have fun and I will save your link so that you will be one of the first to be followed, as suggested by the other writer who's link is pasted here.

      Great Newbie Guide Hub!

      Only a few issues:

      1. The hub hopper is filled with the "dross" of Hubpages. It's the lower ranking and lower quality, often spun or spam content. Most members who spend much time using it end up using the report button more than any other!

      2. Fans don't do much, moneywise. Most follow just for a follow back or out of passing interest. Only about 5% will actually have a genuine interest in reading or commenting, and even less will share. And as above, hub hopping is not the best way to get them. Probably one of the best ways to get quality fans is by posting interesting, informative or funny messages on the forums. =)

Then I use an photo capsule to import the image. I will write up a tutorial hopefully today so that others can learn how to do it as well. Thanks Again!!

      This is pretty much Hubpages in a nutshell, Patty! Great job summarizing everything this site has to offer.

      I love the purple borders that separate each section of text (one of my reasons for the "beautiful" vote)! They stand out and make this hub look organized. I've noticed these borders on others' hubs too, and I'm thinking about applying them to my hubs. Where can I find them? Are they in the text capsule?

      BTW welcome!

      Very useful information and spot on about it all. Yes, this is not a get rich quick scheme, it is a place for dedicated writers to share their work and promote, comment, and form relationships with other writers. Hubpages is a great place for writers to connect and share their work.

      Well done!

      Thank You for being a great writer and hearty supporter, also. Btw, in my post, it should read..."It should be mandatory...." embarrassing typo to say the least. My apologies.

      Josh, Ron, rcrumple, and although not commented yet billybuc, have been my biggest supporters since I started on HubPages!! I cannot express how much your encouragement and support has meant to me!!! If it weren't for all of you that have been there, I would NOT have made it to 30 Hubs!!!! THANK-YOU sooooo MUCH for EVERYTHING!!! I truly do appreciate it!!!!

      Another great hub! I wish I'd have had this when I first started. I should be mandatory reading for anyone new!
