From a New Hubber to a New Hubber- My Experience and What I Have Learned So Far
My First Hub
I love reading about other people’s experiences on the Hubpages, so I decided to write this article to share my experience with the Hubpages. I have been on this site for about two months now. This is my sixtieth hub. My first article was titled “Understanding gender differences in a relationship.” As I am sitting here writing this, I have a score of 63 on that hub. I need to go into that hub, add a few more keywords,and tweak them a little to make them more search engine ready. My total page views on that hub are 64. Since I have been on this site, I have learned a tremendous amount of useful information about SEO. My hubs have improved, and still are improving. I brows around this site from time to time, and learn.
I have 4,358 page views to date. I do plan on improving this in time, and posting an update another time. Here is some useful information for a new person that may be reading this hub. I am still new here, but, I still believe other Hubber’s can benefit from this information:
If you click on one of your hubs, click on “stats, “then click on “hubmetrics” this is what you will see:
- Word Count --------- This is the amount of words you have in your hub
- Revenue Potential-This will have $$$$$ signs. The more of those $$signs you see, the better of a chance you have at earning from that particular hub.
- Incoming Links--- This will have***** for the amount of incoming links on your hub. The more you back link your hub, the more ***** you will have.
- View Duration---This will have *****. The longer your readers stay on this hub, the more of these***** you will get.
- First Published--- This is the first date you published this hub.
- Short URL- This is for sites that only take a short URL, such as
Your hubber score is different than your hub score. A hubber score is the little number at the lower right of your profile picture. The hubber number ranges from 30-100. A beginner will always start with a hubber score of 30. Some of the factors that influence your hub score can be learned about here: http://learningcenter.hubpages.com/hubscore-hubber-score/
To keep your hubber score points up, make sure you stay active in the Hubpages community. Read and comment on other peoples hubs. Make sure your hubs are quality.
Your hub scores (the score next to the title of your hubs) indicates the overall quality of your content. This score starts out at 50, and can end up being 100.
The Hubpages, and search engines alike prefer a hub that is from 600-1,000 words, maybe more. I have also learned that using keywords in both the individual hub and in your title gives you more traffic.
I have learned that the longer someone stays on your page, the more odds increase that an AdSense add will be clicked. I guess that means we need to entertain someone from beginning to the end of a hub.
new hubbers should search the Hubpages for the following
The amount of capsules you have, and the quality of the content.
I would recommend all new hubbers to do searches on the Hubpages to better understand the following:
Do Follow back links
Hubpage success stories
How to increase a hub score
Experience on the Hubpages
The importance of the title in your hub
encourage other Hubbers
I have learned that the accolades that you see in your profile page are actually important to get. When you start earning them you, it means you are staying interactive with the community. Why would it be important to stay interactive with the Hubpage community? Besides increasing your Hubberscore, you are learning from other Hubbers, and encouraging Hubbers. Why is it important to encourage other Hubbers? The Hubpages has a certain rank in Google and other search engines. The more quality articles we have as a whole, the better we all look in the search engine rankings. Would a site with poor quality get ranked well? No. If you want your Hubs even more visible in the search engines, and you want to see more traffic, help each other out. As we help each other, we are improving our rank as a whole, and also improving our individual rank. I have learned the community on the Hubpages is awesome, helpful, and intelligent.
Hubpage Writers Are Good Writers
I have found out more about SEO, back links, quality, etc. here in the Hubpages than any other place on the internet. The Hubpages not only has a system in place that teaches you, but some very good writers, that can breaks it down for you to better understand. The writers that have been here a while are the real pros. They have probably tried all the tricks in to book to get their knowledge. When I want to learn anything about writing quality articles, I do a search on the Hubpages. I do searches here, such as “where to get quality backlinks “and learn from someone that has experience using them.
