    Hello my name is Rachel and I am new here.  I was going to start up my Hub, but I had a few questions first for whoever can help me.  I would like to do a Hub possibly on recipes, a celebrity, or fashion, but how do you keep from getting in trouble if youlook on another website to help you get information??  What if I used a picture off of or some place like that for a celebrity? Also, is this really worth my time to make money with google adsense?  how many hubs can you have going at a time? Please help.

    Hi Rachel, welcome!

    Unless a site specifically says you can freely copy and use their material, you can pretty much assume it's copyright - so you can't use it on your Hub.  That's fair when you think about it, because you wouldn't like someone taking your hard work and using it themselves either! 

    There are a few sites where you can get photos that are free to use, however I don't know of any with celebrities.  And I have to admit, I know nothing about Photobucket or what the conditions are for using the photos there - maybe someone could enlighten both of us?

    As for the money thing - I've been here a couple of months and have made $6 so far.  There are Hubbers here who are making money, but I know they've worked hard to achieve their success. 

    Here's what HubPages has to say about earnings on their Help screen:

    "Can I make a living with HubPages "Royalties"?
    We consider the program to be a nice bonus, but it should not be the main reason why you participate in HubPages. There are revenue generating opportunities with HubPages, but we are careful not to over-promise any results."

    Thank you for your reply,  Im hoping to make some money here, but I will have to really get into it and try to get some traffic into my hubs.  Any suggestions.  If you would like to check out my first hub please feel free if youcould give me any advice as to how I could improve I would very much so appreciate it.

    There are a lot of Hubbers far more experienced than me (but not many of them here right now as it's the middle of the night in the States!).  So I'll give you my two pence worth.

    Sign up for Amazon - it won't do any harm.  Even if no one buys anything, I find it adds a bit more colour and variety to your Hub. 

    Think about floating your photo capsule up to the top and make it half-width so your text wraps around it.  Or maybe find another photo to put there, or your Amazon capsule.

    Break up your text into two or three capsules, so you can add photos or Amazon ads in the middle.   A great big chunk of text looks indigestible!

    Personally, I would cut some of the information about yourself and put it in your profile.  Then refer to it in the Hub (something like, if you read my profile you'll understand why I'm qualified to give this advice).  Then people will click on your name to read about you, and may be more likely to read some of your other Hubs.  That's only my opinion - I'm sure others will drop in to advise.

    One is doing so now =]

    The Amazon idea is a great, indispensable tool. I know that if I come across a hub that looks huge, I'm most likely to click back off it. I've yet to sign up for Amazon but I may just go do that now.

    Also, some sites that give free photos or content require a link back to them. Its always best to check out the conditions of the site first, and always place a link back if its asked for. As a designer, I know how annoying it can be when someone uses your work without giving you credit for it.

    I should also add that making your Hub look attractive and writing a good piece is only the beginning.  If you're serious about making money, you need to start learning about Search Engine Optimisation, social bookmarking and networking, and a whole host of other stuff which I'm a complete novice at.  There are quite a number of Hubs on these topics, browse around and you'll find them!
