What is the best piece of advice you've received /given on writing a hub?
There have been so many helpful hints on creating a great hub, increasing traffic, raising your profile or maximising revenue - what tip do you feel helped you the most in Hubland?
I have gotten this and given it: Never, ever give up. Keep writing until YOU don't want to any more. It doesn't matter what anyone else says, write for yourself.
KISS - Keep it short and simple.... People's concentration span is nowadays maximum 1000 words. They also need to see the essence of a hub at first look in order to obtain desire to read on....
I think quality content is the best advice I have received. There are many other things that go into a good hub, but content is king.
Section headings, section headings, and section headings. People reading information online expect breaks between different subtopics in an article and section headings help people find what they need more quickly.
My honest advice is to stop writing for Hub Pages unless you are prepared to rate everyone's writing as AWESOME or FUNNY or USEFUL or several other obsequious labels.
But don't expect to find a button to click that advises one to LEARN TO SPELL or TRY TO UNDERSTAND PUNCTUATION or GRAMMAR IS IMPORTANT.
Without sounding jaded, I cannot believe anyone can write quality work and have an output of several "deep and meaningful poems" or indepth prose on subjects that something that really matters and all on a daily basis.
Yep! I think that HP is turning into, or already was, an unwieldy incestuous load of crap.
I read, I move on, I find some work that is incredibly well written, heart-warming or stunningly beautiful... but not often,.
Oops! I said what I think - not what I was expected to say.
And please, Mohan, don't include yourself in any of the dross. You know your worth.
The best advice I have ever received about writing Hubs is this ' Adhere to Google Content Regulations' Secondly ' Spend quality time doing your Keyword Research'
These two points have been the guiding principles to my success with the HubPages.
