I completed the apprenticeship program in December and highly recommend it to anyone who has the time and desire to understand how online writing does work. I had done my own research in how to write and format hubs and do keyword research but I discovered in the apprenticeship program that some of the advice I'd taken from other people was wrong and had actually hurt my views. In fact, I had to re-do many aspects of about 200 Hubs, which took a lot of effort. However, the effort has been well worth it. Not everyone who finishes apprenticeship has had my experience, but my views are way up. I've hit 3000 some days, which is twice my high hits before apprenticeship. So I would strongly recommend the program. The lessons are clear and easy to understand, you will enjoy getting to know some of your fellow Hubbers, and you will also enjoy meeting HubPages staff. It doesn't hurt to have HubPages staff know you and your work either.
