What am I doing wrong on my hubs. how do I get more people comment and view them??????
Hello stefy26, it looks like you have been here only five days! Do not worry, work on your Hubs nice and eventful, join in with discussions and the like, have a look around and get a feel of things.
For a start, you only have 4 blooming hubs on here, and 4 Hubs isn't going to see you anywhere on HubPages. Also you're writing your Hubs in the form of almost of blog posts, which is poorly grammatically written with spelling mistakes and lower case "I's" as far as the eye can see.
I suggest right now that you take a good look at the Learning centre here: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/contents Make sure to view all of it before posting your next Hub, and revise the content that you already have posted.
Another point to put forward is that you are only 5 days into this website, and you seem disappointed when you obviously haven't put in any work yet.
Please I beg that you don't take any of what I've put forward into offence, but you really need to take a step back, do a little more research and learning and then continue. Good Luck!
P.S. Have a look at some of the more experienced writers here, if you want to implement their strategies for success. However never copy their content or else your reputation will drop.
Your hubs are full of spelling and grammatical mistakes. One of your hubs even has a mistake in the title, you've titled it as 'who would of thought' but it should be 'who would have thought'. You need to read more, then your spelling and grammar skills will improve. I suggest rereading and editing your current hubs to take out all of the mistakes, which will make them more readable.
I read one of your hubs and I thought the content was good, but you do need to work on the grammar and spelling. You might try reading other hubbers work to help with this. The main thing is to keep writing and don't get discouraged. The more you write, the more your writing will improve and you will begin to get more views and comments.
Stefy, welcome. The reason you're not getting visitors is because you're so new, and you're writing the wrong kind of thing.
HubPages is a place to write long, interesting articles - the kind of articles you'd read in a magazine. It's not a blog or a social network. Your Hubs are far too short and don't have a lot to say.
You say you enjoy writing, so take some more time to write good, long pieces which are helpful and informative, and you'll start to get traffic. But it can take months to get many readers, it takes patience!
Go to Hubbers and look at their high scoring Hubs (by clicking on "best") and see some of their topics, how their Hubs are put together with photos, maps, links, make good use of the Learning Center for answers to this question, and write more Hubs with good quality similar to those "best" Hubs and on intereting topics which people want to read about. Also, choose some topics you are interested in reading and in writing about, so that Hubbers who write and read those topics will also see your Hubs. (You can find all topics by clicking on "Topics" at the top of the HubPages page.)
I only say these things because you asked - but there are numerous spelling and grammatical errors in the hubs. The subject matter seems young and more like a BLOG. Try the hub hopping feature to see what others are writing about and the kinds of comments they receive.
Ok, so first of all, edit your hub and eliminate the grammatical and syntex errors. You may like to follow the following advice to increase people viewing your hubs.
1. Write a few more hubs.
2. Advertise yourself over social networking sites like facebook and twitter. Whenever you write a hub, boast it over the facebook wall. It would be seen by all your friends. Further increasing the readers, you may paste your hub url on your friends' walls as well. It definitely increased your readers as friends of friends would be interested.
3. You may be working as a free lancer on sites like oDesk. Use your hubs to boast your work experience by stamping your hub url at the end of your coverletter e.g NaimaBilal.hubpages.com
4. While chatting to your friends you may ask them personally to visit your hub.
5. Write for others. I mean somebody may ask you help regarding a topic. Instead of emailing her/ him the answer you write your answer and put it as your hub. Your associate not only will get an answer but may also go through the rest of your hubs.
6. Answer questions to other hubbers.
7. Seek help: When you read a hub you may ask the hubber to comment on your hub as well. It really works!
Do let me know how this message helped you.

I've been on here for 9 months and followed all the advice from the learning centre, forums and hubs from the best hubbers. I earned the first $24.00 in the first month and I'm only $1.00 ahead for the next eight. What am I doing wrong? All help will be greatfully received.
