Hi all, my name is Melissa and I am just a few days old here. I've been spending a lot of time browsing the site- lots to learn, but great information. My passion has always been in writing, but I'll be honest, I get discouraged quickly. I hear the key is to just write quality stuff and stick with it. I'm hopeful things will work out good for me and HubPages. I look forward to getting to know you all better. Thanks for listening!
We've all been there Melissa, as a newbie to HubPages. Welcome Aboard! Many Hubbers have written useful Hubs about what they learned about how to write good hubs and get views, so search for Hubs like those to avoid making mistakes and to save yourself time learning. I wrote one called, "Using a Hub Milestone to Make Hubs More Searchable and Accessible" that explains what I know about making Hubs that rank better in search engines and other tricks for getting more views.
There is also a place in the forums section of HubPages that allows you to submit a Hub for critique by fellow Hubbers. That can be quite helpful. One thing HubPages has plenty of is help for new Hubbers.
It does take persistence. My passion is in sports medicine which is definitely a niche market. It took a while for me to start seeing traffic but now I'm consistently seeing 50-60 views per week (for me that's booming ). I try not to let low traffic discourage me and write about my passions.
Remember to read the guide for new hubbers. Write about evergreen topics and try not to post too many new hubs too close together. Good Luck!
Welcome Melissa, glad to have you aboard. Write about things that interest you and which you know about. Do not be afraid to ask questions and other Hubber friends will be glad to answer them for you. We have a Learning Center and FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) which will usually give you immediate answers. http://hubpages.com/faq/ At the top you can click on 'Learning Center'. Good Luck
I have been thinking about leaving for a while, but I know that in those times I have had something else going on that depresses me a bit. It started when I lost my brother and I began to, somewhat, lose that oomph I...
I just joined this website today. My question is regarding the quality of the things I have posted, seeing as one thing I wrote seems to have been taken away... I am open to suggestions so I can get better at what I do,...
Hi everyone. I'm new to this site and only stumbled upon it while I was trawling around, looking for some way of making a few pennies doing something I love - which is writing. The trouble is, I'm a bit of a dummy when...
