    Best Practices for Writing a Hub.

    Maybe this topic/question has already been answered but I wanted to hear from all kinds of hubbers what their best practices are for writing and promoting hubs. Whether you measure your success in dollars or in views I want to know what techniques you implement to reach your goal or definition of success with online freelance writing for hubpages. I appreciate the responses.

    Well, views mean payout. The more views you have, the better chance of making money on here. Just write good quality hubs that you think will interest people and keep them coming back for more. A good quality hub will consist of proper spelling, punctuation, photos, summary, etc. A good word total to reach for is around 500 words. If you have any questions, you can always go to the learning center. In which I will post the link for you. Good luck!!

      Thanks I appreciate your very informative answer. I'm trying to survey everyone to see what specifically works for them regardless of how successful they feel they are. Is there anything specific or unique that you do that contributes to your success

    Aim for google views if you want more earning. Having an account famous among hubbers won't help you so much. Before writing a hub, research for a long-tail keyword with decent monthly views, about 200,00. You can find such information through google adwords' keyword tool. While writing, make sure you include the keyword in your title and at least twice in your hub's body. Keyword placement is important. Place the first one within the first five sentence and the other in the hubs' body. Finally, promote your hub through twitter, facebook, pinterest, and tumblr. I recommend tumblr and pinterest if your hub is all about photos or videos. Otherwise, use twitter and facebook. I hope I made sense. Good luck and have a great day!

      Thanks for such a detailed and informative answer. These are some great tips that I think everyone could benefit from. You pointed out something I fail to do which is researching long tail keywords. I'm going to start implementing that in my planning

    If you want earnings, it need views and you need consistent and regular views daily. And the only best way to get regular view is to get in search engine results which is not tough if you are writing on hub pages.
    A 30 minutes of keyword research and analysis is enough to get in search results and getting regular views throughout life. I am following this practice and getting decent view and earning daily though I am also new.
    If you are not aware of keyword research then you can search about it, otherwise a little about keyword research, analysis and on page SEO I explained in one of my article.
    Just be consistent, it takes time but you will get success if you keep yourself strict.

    If you could write one hub each day, a good hub such as health issues, science issues and recipes, I am sure these are some of the best way for writing a hub. I also use google keyword tools, search the google websites for the titles for my hubs and check errors in spelling.
