If you had to pick one good piece of advice for a new hubber, what would that be?
Dont apply to adsense untill you have at least 10 or even 20 hubs.
Read and understand the Learning Center tips and requirements and the FAQs, then read a lot of Hubs from top -rated hubbers.
Know why you're writing here, then make a plan of how you want to use your time and knowledge.
If you have expertise in an area, write on those topics.
Don't expect the same results as someone else who has given advice on how they achieved specific goals.
Read through the Learning Center, there's so much great info and insight as how to write and publish on this kind of platform.
Pick the one you like best, or think will help you the most, because advice is not "one size fits all."
- Read the Learning Center. It's the best advice from both users and admin from the last six years.
- The web stopped being "if you build it, they will come" years ago. It takes a LOT more work now.
- To make as much money on the web as a day job takes just as much effort as a day job.
Dont ignore the advice of any of the woman who have posted so far. No matter how much I may fight them in the forums they are highly valuable resources.
If you're busily trying to get internal traffic (traffic from other hubbers, from comments, forums, follows, questions) you will never get passive traffic or income here.
Does that mean, hubbers don't count towards what you earn?
From memory I think they do, but it'd be quite a low CPM as hubbers aren't meant to click other hubbers' ads.
Plus, you have to ENCOURAGE other hubbers. If you learn how to get social or search traffic, it'll come without you pushing it.
I have read to put my link on social page. I'm not sure how to do anything ese
Follow HubPages' advice in publishing a hub (format, content to include, length, etc.)
1. Ask "how to" questions in the forum. No question is too dumb. Sometimes getting a straight answer from a helpful hubber is clearer than trying to sort out tons of info in the Learning Center. But by all means, visit the Learning Center for the basics to save yourself from wasting time making mistakes.
2. Read hubs under "HubPages Tutorials and Community" in the All Topics section. Some of the best advice is hidden there.
3. Be patient with change and slow progress.
I like your first one. The learning center was help, but still left me a little clueless on something's
I would never take advise from a hubber with an author score of 61(see my score)...that being said,let me give you some advise.
Pin back your ears,butter your head,and dive right in...that's why you have a delete button...which I should use liberally...I know,I know,I know...
Have patience. If you aren't earning money now, a few months down the line things will probably improve. Hubs need to age. Write, write, write. The more you write, the better you should do.
Learn how to research subjects thoroughly. Most people are blind online. Grow an eye and you will be a star.
Anyway. We are being serious here.
Then you will not mistake cyclops for cyclopes, amongst other things.
You could check out tricky words by highlighting, right clicking and selecting 'search google for whatever.'
You might then decide not to mention silky anteaters at all.
I wrote cyclops at first and spell check underlined it so I went with its suggestion. Now it's not underlined at all. I am obviously completely dimwitted.
The spell checker on this site is a moron.
What, for instance, can it do with the word 'amongst'?
It doesn't even recognize words like afterall.... which should be one word, but b/c of the instance of spell check... isn't.
Well, there we are. We are shocked, disappointed and disgusted. lol. Also, sleepy.
'Tis now the very witching time of night
When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world:
Or to put it another way.
Goodnight ladies, ladies goodnight.
I would advise anyone joining Hubpages to follow me and like and comment on all of my hubs, because I am brilliant.
My best advice is to learn as much as you can, then write, write, write. So many people give up after a few hubs, that it seems that only 3% of Hubbers have 25 or more hubs. You have to have more than 25 to do well here.
Write when the views and revenue are going up, and continue to write when the views and revenue go down. Keep writing and keep trying to improve the quality of your writing as much as possible. Read other people's hubs to get a feel for how to write hubs, and learn more about HubPages, SEO and whatever else you need to learn, then get out of the forum section and write some more.
To get more money, you can analyze which of your hubs are doing better, and write more like those.
My best advice is to learn about SEO. I wrote a Beginner's Tutorial Hub about SEO to help you learn the process. Whether you are writing on HubPages for income or just to develop readership for your articles, appearing high on search engine results pages is the key to consistent, high volume of views.
I only have 36 Hubs, but they receive 2,900 views per day because of the SEO techniques I recommend in the Tutorial.
Keep writing and add only your very best content to Hub Pages. Then continue writing so there's always fresh material on your sub domain.

As a new Hubber (2 months in here) I'm always looking for good advice from the veteran hubbers, I always try to learn new thing from the Hubs of the Top Hubber in HubPages and I'm amazed by the skills of their Hubs and How easy they get traffic, comments and constant high scores.
