How to become Featured Author on HubPages

Updated on May 27, 2011

HubPages Featured Author

You are up and publishing hubs and are creating lot of buzz in the town. The next thing to focus is becoming a featured author on HubPages. Yes it holds lot of benefits and will actually provide you with instant recognition, boost in your traffic and hence monetization potential.

So let's see how we can become a featured author and of course I am also pitching for the same.

Steps to featured hubpages Author

The steps are easy to read and write about but are difficult to practice. They are as follows-

1. Publish a Hub every 24-48 hours’ time period. HubPages assigns weightage to those Hubbers who are active to HubPages and hence you should constantly publish a post in mentioned time frame if you want the spot of Featured author.

2. Have an author score of 98+. Yes this is important you can only show on the featured author space if you have author score of more than 95 or greater. But most of them are 98 or 99.

3. Have hubs having hub score of more than 95

Why this importance to being a Featured Hubber

Featured Hubbers have more advantages than anyone else and that is why we are giving so much importance and focus on this subject.

Advantages are as follows-

1.    Featured Hubbers are thought as writers of repute by everyone on the HubPages and hence you are placed along the side of the established and more experienced Hubbers.

2.    Featured Hubbers are shown in the everyone’s HubPages profile Dashboard and hence they receive more visits and more visits often convert to more followers if you have good content. Take the case of Patty Inglish and Chuck, they have huge following and are earning hugely because they are featured Hubbers.

3. And you know more followers attract yet more followers and hence your readership grows not linearly but exponentially and hence your visit convert to more clicks and hence more Adsense dollars. 


It may take some time before you get to the ranks of the Featured Author but you know what keeping up to the task will bring your Author Score, hub score, and the number of hubs. 

Hence you will get to next stage in this HubPages Author Rankings and definitely if you can continue your bull run, you will definitely make it to Featured Author and you should know I am also running for the rank.

      hi Mercredi

      Yes you observed it right. It's really a lot of work but the rewards are sweet and satisfactory also once you are off to a good start, it becomes less hard work.

      HubPages is designed in such a way that you have score everywhere in this site not that I approve it but it's life.

      I will definitely follow up a hub on the topic of how to get legal pics for your hubs but there are well written hubs out there presently which you can use for your needs. You can use pics from internet if they are available under Common user Licence.

      A lot of good ideas and tips. Only thing at this time I don't know is where I could find pics for my articles since I can't take them from the Internet. That would be another good tip. Will keep reading your articles for further information.
