Hi there! I just signed up to hubpages and have been reading up on the history of hubpages, adsense/amazon/ebay etc., Google adwords/keywords and analytics, backlinking, and basics of SEO. I've also read a little into niche writing etc.
Full disclosure - I'm an actor and screenwriter so have lots of writing experience but am new to online. I write daily as a good writing habit so thought I'd look into posting online. I like to learn and am finding researching online writing and SEO fascinating. What else should I know/research about blogging/hubpages?
I'm not trying to scare you, but... I think the first and foremost thing about Hubpages is that it's important to not expect a payout right away, or anytime soon. For some, it takes years just to get a payout. It's a lot of work, but it's worth it. Just need a lot of patience (and time).
Congratulations mister Gean. There are many things that we do here at hub pages. You will learn those things with time while you participate in the hub pages community. Please do not get discourage, when someone gives you a comment. Hub pages are strict with gramma and punctuation. Do not forget to go back and check your writing, so they can show your work to the other writers. I am welcome you to this amazing site. You will love it like I do.
Welcome to HP. I'm sure you'll be a welcome addition to our group of writers here.
When I first started writing online, someone told me that doing so is different than other types of writing, but they never explained what they meant. I had to learn the hard way that to do well, you have to watch every detail of what you are doing so that you please Google, don't spam your work, use and accredit photos properly, use capsules (at least here on HP), keep paragraphs short and easy to read...etc. The list goes on and on.
I strongly suggest you look at some of the articles from the more well known and successful writers here to see how they format their work and which writing techniques they use.
It's still the old "beginning, middle, end" technique, but with a twist. The Learning Center will be extremely helpful for you, and you are always free to ask people on the forums or the team for assistance, also.
The learning curve is long, even for an experienced writer like yourself, but it is interesting and challenging. There will be many bumps in the road, but if you stick with it, you'll be OK.
Thanks for the heads up! That's fine by me! I'm just keen to learn as much as I can at the moment as I think all knowledge is valid and helpful! And hubpages seems like a great place to learn about SEO etc. while stretching my writing muscles daily!
I'm sure you will do well (and, yes, it does take a while to get the earnings going ). Most new hubbers plunge right in without bothering to read the guidelines or learning center, and that is a mistake.
It looks like you are ready. If you already know the basics, you will learn more as you go along. I just glanced at your titles and it looks like a nice variety. Your writing experience should make this fun and easy for you.
wow i joined six months ago and i don't have as many as you. you are a really good writer.

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 it comes to computer stuff, and although I've managed to set myself up and even...

I am new to HubPages and so far I am enjoying it. I would like for some constructive criticism to make my hubs better. Any and all mistakes you find if you could point them out, would be helpful. Most of my hubs are recipes, and all are about food in one way or another. I am just sticking with this...

If I joined hubpages today, with all the accumulated knowledge I have gained, first of all:I'd start writing product hubs.Why? Well they earn on both Adsense & Amazon, they're often easier to write than informational hubs and once you get into the swing of them you can easily make them fast.So...
