First, it arouses curiosity in the reader,
Second, it says what is inferred by the title,
Third, it is free of grammatical and spelling errors
Fourth, it progresses seamlessly
Fifth, and the most important, it takes the reader into exploring further the general theme or topic originally presented.
I guess msorenson knows. That's about all I can say about it.
A good hub is made from solid information, good form, proper spelling and grammar, and a unique point of view. Take the time to make it interesting to others and to flow in a manner that makes sense. Sprinkle in some original pictures and break it into easy to read segments and you are set! Good luck!
Good writing. Any subject can be made interesting by good writing. I also enjoy a hub that is well-illustrated. And . . . it also shows when the writer feels passionate about the subject.
There are many things that can make up a good hub. A few that I can think of are as follows:
-Interesting and Useful Content
-At least one to two pictures of high quality
-easy to read and understand
-Good grammar and spelling
-Good use of SEO keywords
Again these are just a few of many features that make up a good hub. It appears as if others who chimed in have filled in the gaps.
1. A catchy title
3. Useful and highly informative information
5. Properly researched keywords
6. Appropriate length
7. Nice flow
8. Accurate grammar
9. No spelling errors
10. Designed for human readers, not for the search engines.
I would say "Amen" to the comments that have been written so far, To add to these good points, if you're writing a "how-to" hub, be sure to include a photo that illustrates each step. The reader benefits greatly from combining the directions with a photo. As we write content we can visualize the steps because we've gone through them so many times. But the reader may not have the luxury of visualizing. Therefore we, as a writer, must help them "see" by inserting photos.
Images, also help to break up what might appear as "boring" content. Also, keep instructional and how-to hubs "simple stupid". The biggest mistake we make is lack of clarification.
