How to Write A Quality Hub
Writing a quality Hub is easy as long as you think about what your viewers want.
Think about topics that you find interesting.
Find out what people are most interested in within that niche and write about those topics.
Make your Hub look nice.
Keep advertisements to a minimum and keep them relevant.
As long as you follow these tips, you will be able to write quality Hubs that others will be eager to read!
Find A Niche
Find a niche topic that you and others find interesting.
If it doesn't interest you, then your readers will be able to tell.
If it interests you, you will more than likely put in the effort that is required to research and write an article of high quality.
What Is That Niche Group Looking For?
Once you have found a niche, you can start researching what they are looking for.
What questions do they have that they cannot find elsewhere on the internet.
Is there a lot of scattered information out there that you could aggregate and make a Quality Hub from?
If so, that would be one great way of writing a quality Hub.
One way to find out what the people in a specific niche you are interested in writing for want is to type keywords into your search engine and see what key phrases pop up.
The key phrases could be the titles to different paragraphs within your Hub.
For example, when I type the word 'Virginia' into my search engine, different phrases pop up, like Virginia 529 plans, Virginia DMV, Virginia lottery and Virginia Tech.
Find a few phrases that are similar and start writing about those.
Use each phrase as the title to a paragraph within your Hub.
By doing this step, you have found what people are looking for.
If I want to right about Virginia, the phrases above could be a title to a Hub or the title to a paragraph within a Hub, but you will know that people are interested in this topic since it popped up in the search engine.
Make The Layout Of The Hub Look Nice
If a Hub is full of words with no breaks, no paragraphs and no pictures, it just looks like a jumble of words and most people skip over those articles.
To make the Hub look nice, make paragraphs, put pictures and polls in every once in a while.
Break it up a little.
People would rather read several short paragraphs than one super, long paragraph that makes up the whole article.
Do Not Over-Advertise On Your Hub
A hub with to many ads can look promotional, especially if the ads have nothing to do with the subject of the article.
You will actually make less money by over-advertising because it will steer the readers away.
If too many adds are on your Hub, it could detract from what people are really there to see.... your article.
Try keeping advertisements to a minimum.
Only put advertisements on your Hub if the product is relevant to the subject of the Hub.
Place ads close to the point in the article where you talk about those products.
Not only will the reader be able to visualize what you are writing about, but they may be interested enough to click on that ad!
