      My advice is to not focus on the making money aspect of HubPages or the Hub score.
      Writing and publishing is for your enjoyment and personal satisfaction. You may make a few dollars a month but it is nothing to brag about.
      HubPages is a great community. You will get diversity of opinion and many people willing to help.
      Good luck and welcome to HubPages.

        This is great advice and what I am setting out to do. I want to have a career with writing but this is about me mastering that skill. My writing skill used to be a lot stronger. I had seizures for almost 8 years. I would often seize close to forty time a day. This racked my brain. I lost all my confidence and some of that skill. My biggest reason on wanting to hubpages is while I can make a little side money I can use community feed back and the stats hubpages offers to polish and improved the skills needed, as well as gain importantly needed skills. I know nothing of seo and little of marketing. I am so so with social media so this is my learning tool.

          I am also epileptic and, although we are all different, have found that I have experienced some memory loss. It helps me to read over some older material and recent articles right before typing a new hub.
          Your English seems fine but make sure you follow the patterns of successfull people like Timetraveller2 when you write. You want to break your text up into capsules, use enough images (preferably your own photos), etc. Take note of those little boxes up on the right of your screen when writing a hub. Are they all checked?
          Do not worry about adsense for a few months. Get writing now.

      Good morning:

      The advice others have given here is good, but I also suggest you take the time to read hubs from some of the more successful writers here to see how they use capsules, subtitles, videos, etc.

      The biggest thing I learned when I first started here is that every single thing counts.  Photos must be clear and reflect content.  Captions are links!  Titles must reflect content and be eye catching.

      Never thought about that stuff at first, but it makes a big difference in readership.

      You will not learn things quickly.  The learning curve here is big.  However, the more you write, read, ask questions and apply what you've learned, the better you will become.

      I've been here almost 6 years and for the first three I earned practically nothing and had only minimal views.  Others have done better, some far worse.  Now I have more than one million eight hundred thousand page views and counting.  It didn't happen overnight!

    1. Hit the "help" button above left. Read the FAQ's and check the Learning center.
    2. Don't try to "master" anything. Do your best. If you make a mistake.. learn from it, it's probably not fatal.

    Yes, there is a lot of information, and it has grown over the years.  It takes a while.
    There are a lot of helpful people here. Ask, if you are not sure about something.
    Also, read a bunch of hubs by others. Subjects and approaches are very broad, as ypu ay already know. Good luck!

    Hi Daniele,

    I would recommend you to write at least 10 quality content articles before applying for google adsense. Otherwise, they might reject your account for the reason of insufficient content. Moreover, you need to check whether your articles receive good traffic from google and social media (at least 50 views per day). Otherwise, there is no big point in displaying ads because you will not get enough clicks and impressions.
    Good luck!

    I would just suggest that you write about anything you have a good amount of knowledge in. When I write an article on a subject I am very knowledgeable in, I can knock out a very detailed and informative article quickly with very little effort. Compile a list of subjects that you have a good amount of knowledge in and start from there. Also, if you get an idea for an article, write it down so you don't forget.

    So what I understand this to be is that one needs to be a specialist of some sort and stick to that niche?

      You don't have to be a specialist, but it helps.  There are a couple of fields where I am a specialist, a professional, but I have written dozens of hubs outside those fields.  And it is generally quite plain that the further I stray from those fields the worse the hubs perform.
