Hubpages Tutorial on Profile Growth for the Newbies - 6 Hubpages Strategies To Make Your Profile Grow Fast

Updated on May 21, 2011

Hubpage Profile Growth Is Important

I have been on Hubpages for a little over a week now and still feel like a newbie, but also feel a little more advanced. I am sure a lot of the Hubpages newbies feel the same. I now want to help as best I can. Feel free to follow me on Hubpages and when I find quality hubs that offer great strategy, I will be glad to share them with you. Feel free to comment on anything I missed and I would love to hear your profile growth suggestions.

Your profile growth: Everything that grows from your activities on hubpages from scores to hubkarma or your followers.

This is a very promising website not only for making money, but also for helping to promote your expertise in your field and in your success as a new way to blossom on the internet. There is so much competition from other websites including all of the social media / social networks, blogs, and good old websites. How do you justify that Hubpages is better than your blog for establishing your expertise? I asked this question and came up with one good solid answer:

Hubpages already has a community and a captive audience!

That's it! Everything else falls into place. Your blog does not have a captive audience and maybe your websites does not either. With over 500 million Facebook members, everyone is talking but nobody is really listening, so hubpages is the place to write, publish, educate, and learn. Kudos to the Hubpages management for coming up with a great community tool.

Your hubs educate people and establish your expertise. Everything else falls into place!

Your hub is your central place. It is the place where everything else revolves around. You can treat it like a blog if you want to, but it is the place where you show your stuff and I have read success stories of other hubbers who are landing big clients because of their writing skills. Do they really have good writing skills or are they good at writing about their subject matter? These are two different questions with the same result. Bottom line: Keep writing about what you love and your expertise will show through.

Your profile growth: Making money, increasing hubscores, improved hubberscores, more followers, and rising Hubkarma are all icing on the cake. Don't worry about those things. They take time and eventually, they all get better! Just Concentrate on writing good content and educate people. Your profile will grow fast!

Free education is a worth a lot of money to a lot of people. If you educate people for free on your hubs, they will come back and reward you in several ways.

Answer people's unanswered questions at http://hubpages.com/question/unanswered/

I like to answer Hubpage.com questions in my favorite topics. There are 4 categories of questions, but I feel personally rewarded for answering the new questions. You will make friends fast on Hubpages that way and if the questions match your expertise, it may land you some great accolades here and maybe even a client or two. Answering questions on Hubpages is a great strategy to grow here.

Hubhopping at http://hubpages.com/hop/

There are so many hubs here that it is hard to just pick a path and follow it, so I rely on hubhopping. To "hubhop", go to http://hubpages.com/hop/ - Hubpages will just randomly send you to hubs that matches your favorite subjects. It takes the guesswork out and makes it easy for you. While you are there, rate a few as awesome or useful and leave a comment. This all helps your profile growth.

Forums at http://hubpages.com/forum/

Forums are also overwhelming, but people need help and people ask for it. Make some friends and answer their questions in their forum. There are so many ways to help people here and it is all community driven, but the forum concept has been around for 15 years since Web 1.0 and still seems to remain the most visited place on Hubplaces.

Read The "Feed" at http://hubpages.com/feed/

The HubFeed is the end all be all of everything that gets published on Hubpages. If you live on Hubpages, this is the best place to be when you are not writing hubs or helping someone in the forum because it updates every couple of minutes. Just refresh your web browser. I have found interesting new hubs, forum posts, and questions just from hanging around the feed.

Read the profiles and hubs of the most successful hubbers

I am following some of the influential hubbers and reading their hubs. You learn a lot that way about Hubpages.com success.

There are other ways to grow your profile, but I hope this hub helps..

In summary, the 6 strategies to make improve your Hubpages profile growth:

  1. Educate people on your hubs and provide some free information that they will appreciate.
  2. Answer new questions
  3. Do some hubhopping
  4. Help people on the forums
  5. Read the "feed"
  6. Read the profiles of the most popular and successful hubbers

      I noticed after I wrote my comment on your other hub that you joined the same time I did and have about the same number of hubs. I don't have the web experience but I am a writer. I'm going to follow what you learn. I also looked at several possible venues for writing and decided that what made Hubpages unique was the fact that people were writing interesting pages that made me want to read. Also, there seemed to be a depth to the information that I didn't find at all on sites that often come up sooner for me on a general Google search. I like your idea about that coming from the community here.
