I am very happy that my first hub got published. Tell me some hot topics to write on.
everyone loves money saving tips, healthcare tips, diets, recipes and crafts, try these green topics
For 'hot topics', I suggest you look at Google Trends. You can look at the hot topics for different countries, as well. For instance, this is what people from India are searching for right now on Google:
And, like others have mentioned, write about a subject you know or have extensively researched.
If somebody has a niche that is making money for them, they won't tell anybody what it is. You will be told to write about things you know about, or have a passion about.
Since we don't know people's life experiences, technical skills, or writing aptitudes, we truly can't give them much more advice than to write about things they know and are passionate about and to then focus on the ones readers respond best to.
People give that advice, not because they are hoarding their niche topics, but because people are individuals with unique skills and aptitudes. My "best" niche on HubPages is giving advice to people who are homeless or who are helping homeless people based on my experiences with both having been homeless and then later providing help to homeless people. Telling someone that's a good niche will do nothing unless they have similar experience and the specific aptitude for writing about it.
I mention aptitude because my best niches really ought to be floral design, mechanical design, and aquarium technical articles if one just looks at where my professional experience and best physical technical skills lie. They are not. I don't have much aptitude for writing content in those areas for online readers despite print publication success with them.
There's no conspiracy going on; it's just that people are individuals, writing is an art as much as it is a skill, and human beings have different passions, interests, and aptitudes.
Even if a topic is successful for someone else, it won't mean it will be great for you. I recommend making a lot of hubs on topics your like. Then keep an eye on their traffic and that will tell you which one to add more related hubs.
It's not easy finding that perfect niche, which is why we aren't all successful but it's a learning tool. Write about what you love and hope for the best. Good luck.
Thanks again peach. These topics are surely an evergreen. . I will write on them.
Thanks for your thoughts LINDASMITH.
I appreciate that no one is going to tell about money making tips or anything related to that.
As you try to make suggestions of topics related to social media...!
congratulations, on your first published hub. You can write on any topic that interests you.
Jus think and write about what ignites you.Only when you have a real passion, you can express it through your words.
Congrats and welcome to HP. Keep on writing. All the best.
Thanks Kylyssa for your wonderful thoughts. I will find out what I love and start writing on it.
Congratulations, it makes you feel good when you get your hub published.
I've always found that writing about new and innovative tech does well.
Your first hub will give birth to the second one and surprise, surprise, the third one, then you will cruise along on the Hubpages freeway. Visit what is called the LEARNING CENTER to avoid frustration. Hubpages has answers to most of your questions, and as you can see, your friends and neighbours around here provide advice because they have been where you are: the starting line. Concentrate on your writing for now. According to the LEARNING CENTER, give yourself about two years of writing quality hubs before you get paid. Hubpages has a way of doing things, like any system. That is why it is important to know what works or doesn't. We fight with Hubpages from time to time due to frustration, but we kiss and make up and start writing again. Good luck Simapreet.
Thanks for such a beautiful advice bonda! Now i'm fully concentrating on writing quality hubs for the people to entertain them, to educate them.
Welcome to HubPages and Congratulations on publishing your first hub! Begin writing with what comes easiest for you, topics that you naturally have a lot of information about in your head and topics that interest you, work on perfecting these hubs with tips from the learning center. If you want to move on to monetizing your hubs learn all you can about seo. Good luck!
Thank you so much MomsTreasure. Your advice is itself like a 'treasure'

Is your first hub (or hubs) still published? Is it getting views and comments? What is different about it and the hubs you are now writing? This is especially for those that have been here a year or more, but anyone can contribute.

I want to write about things I love, which is what I'm told you should do. So, for you guys who have had successful hubs, are your hubs like that because:You got lucky, and what you're passionate about is a hot topic;You made hubs that you knew were popular topics;Or some other reason?

What is more fun? Writing dozens of articles for a niche or writing all sorts of articles from holidays to teeth whitening? And leave aside the fun, what about the money - which has more potential? What would you rather do as a writer on HP - niche writing or free lancing?

As mainly a writer of property related material, I am heading towards creating a niche on HubPages, but I'm not sure this is necessarily as good for attractinbg traffic as having a more widespread subject matter. Has anyone got any opinions on this?

I log on every day, and it seems that I always find negative things popping up in the forums. I am sorry that so many people are struggling on HubPages. From SEO issues to having popular hubs unfeatured for a multitude of reasons, it seems very discouraging for any newcomers. When I first got here...

I'm just curious how you guys choose what topics you write about. I realize most of you write about things you're interested in and enjoy, whereas others write about things that are newsworthy or topics that have top dollar keywords.I'm interested in how you choose your hubs...I'll start......
