    Keyword research. It has been proven by many excellent hubbers who created genuine and high-quality hubs that they are still prone to being idled. To give your hub a better chance of having a decent PR, spend more time in searching for keyword phrases with less competition but good average monthly page views (at least 500k). and use them while creating your hubs.   I followed this method and is now enjoying 1.5k views every day with just 50+ hubs. Good luck to you and God bless!

    In answering your question, I'm reminded of the age old statement that "Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder." Before you address the components of a good hub, you first need to ask yourself what you think is success in writing? If you are seeking fame and fortune, i.e., keywords and page views, then there are many helpful tools to help you/point you in the right direction. Accordingly, you can structure your hubs around those parameters.

    However, if you have a passion for writing and you put words to print that come from the heart and what you truly feel, then, in that case I believe that ultimately you will produce a good hub. So, if your definition of success is composing a heartfelt, thought provoking and compassionate piece you will undoubtedly succeed by practicing your trade.

    It depends, how you define, 'good' and  'successful'----is it the money part or is it creative satisfaction. I believe, writing is to express your own thoughts in the form of an article. So, originality in the content is very valuable to make it good. I love spontaneous writing. It gives me immense satisfaction if people read my hubs and give their feedback. That gives me a feeling that the hub is good and successful.
