    I'm new! (no, really, I am) wink

    What's your best tip for someone just starting out on Hub Pages?

    What Hub about Hubs do you recommend I read?

    Thank you! smile

      I'm fairly new too, but I'd suggest:

      1. Write good stuff about what you like and know best
      2. Click on 'Hubs' then 'Best' and read a few that have scores in the high 90's - It's better to read what really works than anyone's 'rules' for what should work.

      Other tips - don't worry too much about stats, monetising or the forums, at least not until you have a 'body of work' behind you.

      Have fun!

    Thank you! Do you think I should take the Amazon links off my hubs until I have more hubs with content?

    No way, Writergig!

    Though, I would suggest you use more tags for your hubs.  Find relevant words inside your hub and add them as tags, that way people doing google/yahoo/altavista/lycos searches for topics that you're writing about have a chance to catch your stuff better.  Someone told me that our tags help the search engines. big_smile

      Tagging is very important.If you dont know what tags to use, you can search for keywords with wordtracker. , and choose "take the free trial".

    I think the biggest mistake most people make is that they give up too quickly. In other words, don't expect too much too soon.
