      You can find an all-you-can eat buffet of proper information in our Learning Center: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/contents

      For specific, quick questions, our FAQ works great: hubpages.com/faq

      Hope that helps! big_smile

      Start here:


      as a matter of fact, everything here: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/contents

      would be helpful.

      You might want to specifically take a look at http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Elem … tellar-Hub

      Just a word of advice, as well, upon looking over your hub there is excessive linking.  Too much blue, way too much blue.  It makes it hard to read.

      You might want to check out http://www.grammarly.com/ as well

      You also want to make sure that your amazon products match your content.

      Edit: Simone beat me to it.

      First of all choose a topic  which is much sought after but not too many competitors and you are well versed and having an inkling for  that topic.  Then choose the keywords through google adword keyword tool and spread them evenly to your article.  Of course be original and be consistent. Wish you good luck.

    Google: "What to write about in hubpages?"

      It's an innovative platform for sharing knowledge as well as experiences. Please try to write some thing new or purely created by you and that is helpful for others. Thanks

    Good luck with your writing!  In addition to the great suggestions here, you might want to research the rules on copied content.  Everything on this site should be original writing, by the author, rather than copied from other sources, such as books or articles found elsewhere. So it's important to make sure what you publish here is original. Otherwise, Google will see that it is copied and that can hurt your chances if getting an AdSense account.

    If I were you, I would (a) tone down the religious language (people in the West won't relate to so much Islamic symbolism and terminology), (b) find things to write about that are your passion (if you want to write about Islam, think of things that Western people don't understand about your religion--explain something specific like you're talking to a friend), and (c) brush up on your english grammar and sentence structure. With your knowledge and passion, I think you could come up with some really interesting titles that would draw traffic and help bring people together.

      I disagree, I have seen Christian hubs that were much more "religious" language. If Muslim is his religion and he want's to write about it, then he should most definitely do that. There are plenty of Muslim people in the "Western World"

      Probably more than would want to read about GF cooking.

      Not to be offensive but if Muslim is his niche, it's probably got a bigger audience.

      I am new too. I too am hoping to increase my traffic. but I guess it will take some time, and I will need to be patient.

      Great Question!

    4. VictoriaSheffield profile image84
      VictoriaSheffieldposted 4 years ago

      Could I get the web address of that tool?

      1. Marcy Goodfleisch profile image97
        Marcy Goodfleischposted 4 years agoin reply to this

        If you're wanting the Keyword Tool - just go to Google, and search for "Keyword Tool."  There are tips in our Learning Center about using it.  You sign in with your AdSense account, and you can search for the competition (number of searches each month) for various keywords.

        However, we have heard lately that the information in the tool is not as complete or up-to-date  as we'd like. Still, though, it's a good way to get a feel for the marketability of a given article or topic. It is recommended (by HP) to look for keywords that have fewer than 40,000 searches a month, but at least 500 searches.  I'm quite new at this, too, so perhaps someone else can chime in with tips based on more experience.

          It is up-to-date, but people have to remember what it was made for. It's for checking the cost a competition for buying ad spots, not for Adsense. As long as you remember high competition on there is good for us as sellers, its a great tool.

            I don't even look at that column, and have instructed the tool not to show it.  Even the cost column is of very limited value as far as I'm concerned.

              Sapperposted 4 years agoin reply to this

              It's not, those are the 2 most important columns. If you don't use them, you might as well just use Google itself, cause you are getting nothing of value from the keyword tool.

      I *was* encouraging him to write about his religion. I thought that it would be a benefit to advance understanding in the West. There is a lot of misunderstanding that leads to fear, and I believe that virtues could write some great posts on how to bridge the gap. His language is highly religious in nature, so if he would like to reach a broader audience (which is what this thread is about) that spans all belief systems he could use more neutral language. I'm not comparing his to Christian hubs or any other hubs for that matter. I don't follow (or care for) any religion, but I do want to promote harmony and understanding.

      I'm sorry you misunderstood where I was coming from, Melissa. Thanks for the jab.

      There's no magic formula to this thing, and no matter which way you turn. You need to learn more about how the search engines work pretty much. Look up the facts about excessive use of Keywords, find out all that you can or cannot do here on Hubpages for starters by reading the terms of use. Then head your way up the Hubpages Learning Centers alley.

      This is how I learned to excel here as a writer and hubpages author, and to reach over 100,000 people worldwide. You can do it, most of all it takes good sensible grammar, loads of great hub articles, and the staying power of networking with others fairly on many differing levels and maybe just maybe you can srike it rich here on HP, by earning some digi-bucks aka chump change over time.

      I wrote a great deal of experiecial hubs as well to help folks learn the ropes and all, close to 100 of them for the community here. Try to ignore much of the negativity online, it will consume you and distract you for sure, and when you get to the top of the web, don't forget us little people as well, because we are the ones who are going to help you get there smile

      Welcome to hubpages all new folks and Good Luck, you can also follow those folks whom are true to one another, it pays to communicate from time to time, and comment frequently after reading your fellow hubbers hubs. However, if you try to cheat the system though, it won't work no matter what you try to do, the system here only rewards those folk whom are true to themselves here on Hubpages and to that of all others in the community. (False following, spamming, abusive behaviors, overly promotional content etc... isn't tolerated practices here pretty much.)

      Hey Virtues! That's a great question! When you first step into Hubpages, this what every writer wants to know. Talking about my personal experience, the best way to get traffic is write more and more quality hubs! And if you are not satisfied with that there are several other ways.

      You can check out my hub on how to get enormous traffic here: <promotional link snipped>

      Hope this will help you!
