How to write a decent Hub!!!!

Updated on December 19, 2014

As young hubbers we all struggle to write a decent hub, but the big question is simply how do we achieve this concept of this so called more than satisfactory article. Every time we are about to publish another article we stop and ponder whether or not it will be milestone. “Will this one get a high hub score; hopefully a 99 percent? Can this hub increase my chances of earning more? Will this hub bring in enough traffic? Or simply does this hub have any grammatical errors. Hubber like me are often plagued by questions like these and it can get quite frustrating when you find out that the complete opposite has presented itself after your hub has been published. The purpose of this hub is not to necessarily tell how someone can make the perfect hub but simply to explore how young hubbers like me can unveil that more than decent hub that we are always looking for. I hope that later on a prolific hubber will stumble upon my hub and be able to answer elucidate my approach and analyses at creating the perfect hub.

Is this for you?

Before we get into encompassing the theory of writing a decent we should first find out if hubpage is a place for persons who seek to seep their shackled talents into resourceful ideals; articles or hubs. It is a community that we could use to train your undeveloped talents. However there is a process that we must go through before we can become primed. Hence what should happen is that very few hubbers will do extremely well initially. But what I find is that some persons simply can’t handle this prolonged process of refinement. I’m sure we’ve all seen a couple of them. You know what I mean; hubbers that gave up a long time ago with only one, ten or fifteen hubs published over 2-5 years ago. That is why it is essential that you first find out if hubpage is for. This is what I sought to do in my first two weeks at hubpage as I had explained in my previous hub. I do encourage out though that you still stick it out and continue to fight regardless of what of the hurdles you face. Like anything else in life what you find is that you get used to it after while if you do it long enough. We are all human beings and henceforth we all best learn through experiences.

Can you get this?

Here are some questions I asked myself:

Can I fit this into my daily schedules?

Am I creative enough?

Have I ever written anything more that acceptable in my life?

How does this help me?

If you even found yourselves ticking at least one of the questions above, that could still be good grounds for joining hubpages; remember that anyone can join hubpages. After fully sorting out our mental processes within ourselves we should now be ready and mentally equipped to stick out the battle of the pages.

For those who are the bright sparks

have you ever gotten a perfect hub score?

See results

Some problems faced:

  • Finding a good topic to write on; now what young writers like me find is that there is a huge dividing line between writing what you’re passionate about and writing a hub that has a lot of popular words and are more for the people and less for you; even if it is dull and uninteresting to you. This is normally constant battle for me especially each time I write try to write the next possible hub of the week (hopefully one day). I’ve explored hubs written by individuals that you could say are qualified to answer this question but I find that sometimes they are playing tug of wars. On hub is telling me to write my mind because I’ll do a much better job that way. However another hub is telling me to write for the people; that way you could be sure of more traffic.

My solution(s)

I believe that the best thing to do is to include both. That’s right you heard me. Do both! It doesn’t hurt to include both aspects into your hubs. Imagine if you could find a topic both interesting to you and you’re readers. Articles like these can take longer to find and to write however like the great Bill De Giulio once said; quality is better than quantity.


  • Writers block: now like any normal person you’ll find that at one point in time you’re ability to process your thoughts at a more than normal pace can lag if you push yourself too hard our even because you might be getting tired after constant rumination. This is normal and shouldn’t flinch you from writing the perfect article.

My solution(s)

Now I can only speak from my experiences of what I believe should be able to work for most persons. These are; getting something to eat, take a walk and get some fresh air, watch a movie or in my case play a video game. These things have never failed me before and I don’t’ believe that it should fail. Sometimes the further away we are from something the more we desire it, henceforth all you may need is a lengthy break!

Also what tends to work is organizing your content effectively before writing it. It always helps when you create a shell construct of your article before fully writing it, for example writing small outlines and bullets of your sections with brief summaries. This should help you to see where you’re going and also help you to detect errors that would’ve been hidden from you. A video is created below to show you how I constructed this hub.


  • Broadcasting your content: there is sometimes the added difficulty of publishing an article that can be broadcast far and wide in order to get enough viewers, this includes trying to get links to prolific social media sites like twitter, tumbler, Pinterest and the great Facebook. Now if you were someone like me or someone who was simply not interested in too much of this social media stuff you’ll find it a little bit more difficult to get your contents published.

My Solution(s)

This is probably the easiest advice I could give; get involved now! Spread your content on social media sites by including links to and from your article. Now most persons might thing that this is a process that you’d generally do after you’ve published your article however it is best done before and after.

Now if you’ve managed to do all of this and hence have improved your content and viewership which I hope you do, the next best thing will be an influx of more perceptible earnings!

You're on our way!!!!!!

      Thank you so much Elsie Hagley. but you sound like you have the capabilities of reaching that 100 one day.

      I like your ideas, but I don't think I will ever get a 100 score for my articles.

      I write because I enjoy doing it and there are very friendly members here that don't mind offering advice and helping when asked.

      I'm a exsquid writer, have had a big change getting hubs to what is required here, especially as we at Squidoo were encouraged to do sale articles and it's not wanted here. I have deleted 100 sales lens in four months, and starting to write new ones now.

      Wishing you a merry christmas and a happy new year.
