What do you do to prepare to write and informational or how-to hub?
Research should be the first thing you should do. Find out what you want to write about so that you know what title to give it. In short, know or get a solid idea of the topic. Get your sub titles together and then start writing. Use one or two photos, remember to acknowledge the photo source. Look for about 10 tags that are related to what you write.
Well, first I think about what I want to write about. Then, I do some keyword research. I pull up Google and manually do some competition research and see what others have done. After all, I want mine to try and be both better and different. Then, I write the article. I try to break it up into sections and add sections (aka sub-titles) as I write it. I pull up Google again and try to find some decent things to link to from within the article. Then I move over to HP, do some copy and paste. Once the article is in there and looking half way decent, I look at adding images and video and monetization modules.
Much research and study may be required to write an informational how to hub. It is important to keep the sentence structure easy to understand when relaying information.

When looking for information on a hub topic it is good to make sure that the information is accurate and that you have done your homework because there is nothing worse than reading an article that has false information. This takes the reader away from your site as they feel that it is fictitious...
