Being a published author feels so good!! This is my first time publishing something on this site. I know this is very competitive field and I understand not giving the secret to YOUR success. I'm looking for Nentors that will lead me on my own journey to success
Every one else has given some great advice, so I really can't add anything. Here at HP, I don't think there really are any trade secrets. From day one, everyone has helped me when I've had questions - including telling me their "secrets". If you have questions, just ask and someone will jump in with an answer that will be helpful.
Read other hubs that people have written about subjects you're interested, and then start writing. Also, there's a lot of help available on the site, so don't be afraid to take advantage of it.
Just say it as it is! Let it flow and see whhat happens. Imagine your trying to help a group of student understand you plee. Convince them what you have to say is true! hth
Summer internet visitor traffic can be extremely low and slow.
So keep your expectations low.
A good time of year to learn what you need to know.
By the time Fall rolls around, you will be fully operational.
Welcome, newcomer Deborah. There is so much to learn. Much of becoming proficient comes over time as you learn the tricks of the trade. For me, it was a 'learn as you go' process, some trial and error, and some stumbling upon the correct way to do things.
A lot of trade secrets are shared in the forums. Look at old forums under "Improving your hub" or under "Increasing hub traffic." Lots of gems there. Also read other hubs, study what makes them stellar.
Trade secret: Hub titles. Make them searchable, think like a searcher, not like a writer.
Welcome to Hubpages.
I have 65 hubs and 3.5 million views. It's about quality not quantity.
It's about finding low competition topics that get plenty of traffic - niche not broad topics. I have a few hubs on it that will get you started
Welcome! Ot takes time to put up enough material to get Google Adsense, and it takes still more time for you hubs to start generating significant traffic, but eventually the payouts start coming--and become more regaular! If you write on subjects for which you have special knowledge--or a special interest that you can turn into knowledge through research--and you can present the material in a way that holds the reader's interest, chances are other people are interested too! The views will come.
I have been to hubpages two years and I am still learning from others. Write on topics that you know a lot of. You can add videos from youtube, photos, links- hubs from other hubbers, ebay products, amazon products to go along with your article.
My Hub, 10 things Every New Hubber need to know can be of help to you. This is the link
There are also lot of hubbers like billybuc who have written many hubs about writing online. You can read some of his hubs and learn more about writing.
Simple....write quality, content rich and point forwarding hubs. Write whenever you get the chance, write about what you love and is interested in. Have good keyword searches. Blast your pages on Facebook, twitter etc.
Try and write hubs about subjects you are passionate about. Proofread before you publish. Good Luck.
I think you'll find that your writing will improve just from the awareness that you are writing for a real audience! This alone will give you an incentive to really communicate--by writing in a clear organized way--and to write so as to hold your reader's interest.
Most writer spend years writing for no one but themselves, so they never get that discipline you can only get when you know you have an audience.
Everyone has fabulous advice, so all I want to say is just remember to be yourself and write what makes you happy. If you are happy with your work, that is how you know you are doing well and improving. Best of luck!
Write about something that you are interested or knowledgeable in and want to share with others. Try to engage the readers, teach them something, leave them with some food for thought. Whenever you publish a hub always include a relevant image. It doesn't have to be professional quality. As long as it works with the content you are writing about. Break up your hub content into many text capsules for easing reading and separate each capsule with a page divider. Once your hub is published share it on Pinterest, FB, Google+ and Twitter.

I recently read some reviews on Consumer Affairs, which were absolutely devasting and have got me a little worried. I was wondering if anyone else wrote at similar sites prior to HubPages and why they made the switch, and if they had thought about going back.

Just gaging anyone else's earnings here. I just checked google adsense and I have earned 64 dollars in 18 months. I've only written 19 Hubs and most of them don't get any traffic. Any thoughts?

I'm just coming back after a several year hiatus, and one of the most exciting things that started when I was here was the HubChallenge. Originally, it was 30 hubs in 30 days. Now I see it's changed to either updating your hubs or 30 hubs in 60 days. I tried the original once, and I failed...
