I just joined yesterday,I haven't had any comments on my hubs yet,could someone give me some suggestions
Comments are hard to come by, Ive very few comments on my hubs, I would love to receive more criticism whether this be good or bad, This is the only way to better our creativeness.
Its a dam shame.
Hello Barbara, great to meet up with fellow newbie on hub pages.
Seems a lot of fun...Iv managed to do a few hub pages so
its all go....chat anytime
Be patient ,it takes time ,you have a good score for two hubs ,so youre off to a good start!
I like the presentation of the information but they need more depth. Just answer the what, where, when, how, etc. which will help give bulk to your Hubs. Also...commosition is spelt ..commotion. Keep your dictionary and thesaurus nearby they help with finding tags too. you're doing great and Welcome to HubPages
The best lesson taught in the realm of hubpages ... with time, fame, fortune, and yes, fandom will come
of course ... you won't become a celebrity, you won't be as rich as Donald Trump, and you won't have throngs of groupies at your window (unless you stop throwing your shoes at me), but you can (with time) find enough to make you feel happy that you chose to join in this menage of the writing society.
I have just recently joined and I would love it if someone helped me on how to get more fans
first of all decide what it is you want to do and what you want out of it.
Instant fame and money? write some hubs about how to make money out of hubpages quickly, keep them coming (with success stories, real or not), and watch the readers and comments roll in. And your hubscore rising like an upside down comet. Problem with that is you have to write lots of them as they age very quickly and go to the bottom of the very large pile. Or write some hubs with high adverts potential (sweaty feet, health issues, pet care....) Nothing wrong with any of that; its about your goals and aims.
On the other end of the scale do what I do, and create a niche for yourself. If you look at the categories I write in and the subjects I write about you'll see that I seem to have those categories almost to myself.. which means that I am not gettng a lot of instant traffic but certainly a lot of continuous and loyal traffic. A much slower process but the advantage is that you dont have to keep up a large stream of hubs, just a steady, regular trickle.. and your readership grows and continues to grow as those hubs dont "age" that quickly. And think of your target audience and try and be consistent with style..
the most important thing though is time... spend time thinking about a hub, researching it and finally writing it... mine take about a week of gestation and a good two or three hours writing until I am happy enough with it... You can guess I am not very impressed by that recent "100 hubs in 30 days" challenge; a lot of junk came out of that one as well as some real gems but they were hard to find..
hubscores aren't everything, nor are fanclubs or comments.Your hubscores are determined by a number of factors, only some of which are under your control. And they fluctuate hellishly, never mind the "quality" of your hub, the amount of traffic they attract seems to be the major cause of that so if you are after a consistent highish score, write consistent quality hubs which attract a steady stream of traffic, large or small.
As for fanclubs... I tend to look for someone who writes consistently about something I enjoy and in a way i enjoy reading it. Which is why I am very selective whom I select. One enjoyable or interesting hub in a package of 100 I dont care about isn't enough; on the other hand two well written and interesting (to me!) in a package of two can be....
hope this helps a bit and good luck; keep at it!
(I could have published this as a hub and attract lots of traffic for a few days and a high score, but this is not what I usually write about so it would detract from my target audience and wouldn't get me new and consistent readers of my "important" stuff so I don't... see what I mean?)
