It seems you did not like the apprenticeship program. Can you tell me why?
I have been asking this question, and have yet to get an answer from anyone who participated in the program, that is anything but glowing. Please tell me what you didn't like about the apprenticeship program.
I have not participated in the program and probably won't anytime soon (I no longer seriously write on HP, it's just guides and interknowledge.)
However my understanding is that it teaches you about how to use SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and keywords to create a hub that will rank well in search engines. Generally "fun" writing like stories and poetry and personal blog style posts don't bring in many views, so that may be a reason why some people were not happy with the program.
The only complaint I've heard is that if a hubber wrote a hub that wasn't deemed appropriate or traffic worthy on any level, they had to delete it.
Hi WryLilt, I thought I was addressing my question to DougBerry. He quit the program and mentioned something about it on his profile. I've never addressed a question to a specific hubber before, maybe I did something wrong? Thanks for your input tho.
Yes, you addressed the question to him, so it will show on his question list, but it still appears in the normal question list. So I thought I'd weigh in.
Thanks for explaining, I wasn't sure how it worked.

Hi - I really appreciate the apprenticeship program, and I'm waiting with baited breath to find out if I get in.It would be wonderful if, once a hubber applies to the apprenticeship program, a log appears saying "You applied on [date]." Maybe even, "Your application will be reviewed...

Just saw this in the new layout! So exciting! Wish I could sign up but can't right now - not enough time to do a good job. But does anyone know how to find out how long the waiting list is already?

Are your writing as many hubs as you used to? Why or Why not?What are the factors that you have decided to write more or fewer hubs than before?
