    If you want to make money? Write rich, genuine, interesting Hubs. Also, Study on SEO, BACK LINKS, etc.

    I have only been here a short time myself, so I am limited on experience.  However, I have learned many things in these past few months.  Best tip for a beginner is to consider this a port folio for your writing and each day read the faq more and more and apply what you learn each day.  There is a lot of info there in the faq and if you take bits and pieces at a time, then it will be easier to learn how to employ the tools to your hubs.  After a while, you will be fashioning a well designed and often read hub!  They money from the hub will come in time, be patient.

    It depends on what you're hoping to achieve - writing to share, to earn or just express yourself and hone your writing skills. Either way the best advice is probably to be realistic in your expectations.

    The system works but it takes time and dedication.Take time to learn how everything works.There are plenty of resources - the learning centre, the forums,Q & A, hubs on almost every topic you can think of and thankfully a very helpful and friendly community.One thing i'm sure of is that the more you put in the more you'll get out.Welcome to hubpages & GL.

    Wow, where do I start. JThomp42 & Rob Winters have actually touched on some of them.
    I just published a hub about my first hubpages pay-out and how to increase your hub views. It highlights several tips that worked for me, and may come in handy for you.

    I addition to backporchstories' good advice, go to Topics (in the Explore drop down menu) and click on a general topic area you are interested in and in which think you will be writing. Click on "best" where the hubs are listed and study what you think may have made the hubs there so good. You will probably pick up some things not mentioned in the FAQs.

    Don't just jump in.  Learn about the basics, write a hub, then refine it as you learn more about how things work.  If you don't do that, you wind up having to go back and rework everything to correct your mistakes.

    write hubs for the enjoyment of writing, not to make money. i see so many people on here commenting on how they aren't making money and i think it makes them give up. if you enjoy writing, just write and maybe you will make some money but more importantly you will get to tell a lot of people how you feel, what you think and your opinion on so many things.

    Be passionate about what you are writing and do a little research on your subject before you begin writing. Read other hubs and watch how they are organized and enhanced with photos and commentaries.

    Just a few tips:

    Build your hopes but level your expectations.

    Always keep the reader in mind as you write.

    Give information in bite size chunks with supporting media.

    (Preview often to assure this before you submit your Hub for publication).

    Always proofread your work or better still ask someone who will give you an honest opinion to look through it.

    Don't expect bucks to roll in. Rather build your hubs to entertain, inform or amuse. If your readership builds up progressively then it may be possible to niche it and then you may be able to earn reasonable money from it.

    Be patient. HubPages is not a get-rich-quick network but there are considerable perks if you are patient. You will see your page views increase when you write quality content and make valuable connections with other hubbers.
