How To Get Published At Hubpages

Updated on October 5, 2009

How do I get fans, I don't get any comments and how the heck do i get published/popular at hubpages?... These are the questions a new hubber will have for sure, while they are still perplexed on how to make money through hubpages.

This hub is meant to solve these problems for those newcomers and also, hubbers who still don't figure out how to get "published". The ways mentioned here is a conjugated result from my own experience and also other expert hubbers out there.

How to Get Popularity here!!!..?

Get Published

  • Good Hubs:
    Quality content always get you to new heights, no matter what topic you choose to create a hub,but make sure that you've got something unique in it as your own. Readers always like new ideas, they are fed up with all those usual hubs, web pages, contents, articles... u name it. So, its always good to put some good effort to do enough research before you start writing.
  • Interact:
    Hubpages has given you a tool designed solely for this purpose, communicate with other hubbers. See what they have got to share, see if they face the same problems like yours, find if somebody has already answered those doubts.
    Im not simply saying this for the sake... this really works. This is one way how people get to know about you, that you are on hupages. Now, as i said above, if you've got quality contents, that will serve well for your newly found friends, to make you their fan. Go to "my account" ----> "interaction" (where you'll find questions, answers...etc)
  • Fans:
    Learn from your fans. At first, be a fan of those who are experts here. Find those who write "how to" on hubpages, and those who support that you'll be able to follow their new hubs too. Also, be a fan of those who are high with their hubscores. Believe me, it pays.
  • Respect others:
    Yes, thats right, but the hub way :). Comment others' informative and valuable hubs.
    But make sure you don't make that usual mistake of commenting "good hub", "i like this hub", "very informative", "good work", "bla bla bla"... Man, there should be some meaning to your comment. It should be in such a way that others should see ur comment and visit your profile too. Like, you should mention what you found great in there, or what they left to refer. I think im making myself clear!!.
  • Ask if you lack:
    Again, this actually comes in the interaction part, but as this is really really important, im mentioning it as a different point and im explaining why.
    You can ask questions one those particular topics that you need to know, or just for the sake of asking. But, whatever you ask, it should be a valid, dominant question. This will help you to get a lot of attention on the long run.
  • Help others:
    Now, you are gonna know a secret. Do you know your answers get into the search engine listings?. Well, thats a truth there. Never, ever leave a question that you know unanswered. This may help to get more people to you. But, be kind enough to provide quality answers from which they'll get some real information.

  • Maintain Hubscore:
    Its true that the real factors that affect hubscores are not yet revealed, but still, there are certain things that we can do.
    Make beneficial hubs consecutively, maintain interaction with others, never spam, never send fan mail too many at a time...etc.
  • Welcome newcomers often:
    Once when you find it warm enough, why don't you help others too?. You know how hard it is to start with, and how you struggled. So, you can go and add them, send fanmails to make them at ease a bit.

These may seem to you like simple factors. But i need you to experiment it before you jump into conclusions.Once, when i was doing these unknowingly and my hubscore went up to 84(would have gone much better). To tell the truth, i became greedy and did some nasty things, believe it or not, my hubscore plummeted down to 67. I had a real hard time bringing it up. So, now i know what to do and what not to. My next hub will be on "How to maintain hubscore", so that you people should not fall into the mistakes i did.

      I'm always interested in ways to attract traffic to my hubs. Recently I've been re-writing some of my earlier ones, having realized they needed a good bit of polishing!

      Very good hub - I am new to this and trying very hard to "get into the groove". You have given me some ideas and although I'm not much of writer, I would love to get some of my own material out.

      Hello once again Aj,

      I have only answered a few questions here on Hubpages and only because I knew the answer to help someone. I guess I should spend an hour a week searching for questions to see if I can help. Getting listed on search engines to boot. Wow.

      Ask if you lack. Another great point. You answered my question and I am so excited that someone finds my instructional videos to be interesting and informative. Thank you.

      I agree, respect Hubbers work. Leaving a short non descriptive Hub comment is useless.

      I have a feeling I will learn much from your writing.

      I've only been here for a few days and have a handful of fans already, but I'd really like to know the pitfalls that might hurt me. Although, I guess my reason for starting a hub is more intrinsic, but I am still seduced by getting fans and comments.

      This was terrific information. I've only been around here for six weeks, and I have no doubts about how much I need to learn. Your user-friendly advice, with examples, made a jewel of an article. Any beginning hubber should be extremely grateful for this info.
