Writing Good Content
What are the important things?
Since writing on HubPages, I have found two things to be undeniably true; if I write with passion, an article does far better statistically, and if I am writing because I just want to get an article out, I know it won't do as well.
HOW TO WRITE WITH PASSION
I go head-over-heals when it comes to big dumb dogs, or any dog for that matter. I could spend my days happily hanging around, playing and snuggling with these wolf like beasts. So when I put pen to pad on a dog related article, I find my brain and hands to become very in-tune with each other. The ease with which the words and information rush to the forefront of my mind is amazing, information begins lining up waiting its turn to run down my arm and activate the tactile motions of my hands making dog related words appear on my computer screen, and it feels good, it feels smooth, and it feels right.
When passionate hubs are written, I find it a delightful task to monetize the page, make the search engine optimization (SEO) flow nicely within the words, manage the position of keywords and related terms. I know I am offering the best bits of top knowledge that are telling my readers how to contend with their canine best friends. It is an honor to bring this type of hub to hub pages and the readers that are kind enough to follow what I write about, and the things I feel are the most important to me.
Linking Hubs Together
Linking the hubs together because they teach on different portions of the same topic helps me to add value to my hubs. Basically referring my reader to another hub that can continue the teaching within; in my case, the "Dog" topic. I can add each hub to a group in the account section of my HubPages, or link directly to a hub via the linking tool in each text capsule's edit mode. Also, I often connect to great content hubs belonging to other quality hubbers that may help to improve my readers learning experience.
Another thing I find very helpful when writing about the most important things to me, is the nifty 'suggest links' tool at the top of every hub I write. Once I have written the hub, monetized it, am happy with the SEO and rss feeds, I can broaden my teaching by using related 'suggested links'. By clicking on the tab and watching the suggestions highlight all over my hub, I get an opportunity to discover more information that might help my reader.It is truly the easiest way to add intellectual value to the topic you are presenting. This also helps with a hubber's 'Hub Karma' score. In essence, what you are doing is allowing this great tool hub pages provides you with to find related hubs, so can choose the best links to other hubbers' (or your own) hubs. When you click on the highlighted word within a sentence, a list containing several other hubs pops up for you to review and find the most related article for you to link with.

WRITING AN ARTICLE
If I feel the need to pump-out another hub just to hit a quota or meet a numbers goal, I find the lack of passion within the body of writing can become flat and uninteresting; only bringing the most loyal of readers to the party. If you present this level of work, that is if you write without depth and lack teaching, you may find that your loyal readers will slowly begin to graze in another pasture.
