I am new here and made two hubs. And with my experience in web 2.0, conforming to a community's standards is part on the internet marketing game. So, what makes a quality hub, really? Is there a standard, a model, a guideline? Thanks.
(Apologies if this is already posted. I checked.)
There are a lot of great hubs on here explaining what it takes to make a quality hub.
Generally I'd say content is key; second to this is formatting! You may have the best content in the world, but if it's unreadable then it will fail - making it easy to read, adding relevant pictures etc really make a difference.
Perhaps the most important neglected part is decent SEO - to make a truly successful hub you have to do a lot of work. Promoting the hub on blogs etc and getting the backlinks will increase the SEO of the hub and make it successful.
You mention 'conforming' - I'd actually say that just producing some 'quality' hubs is the answer - doesn't matter if it doesn't conform to the 'norm' on Hubpages.....
I'm new here too, but from what I've heard, having a specific niche (like asthma) is a good way to go about it. I just can't bring myself to write about only one topic. >.< But, being able to bring a lot of people to your hubs, like with twitter and other things of the sort is also a very good thing. :-) Oh yea, and good content and good writing of course. Which, I've already read yours and it's very good and it would probably be very helpful to me if I had asthma.
Quick Replies! Me like. Thanks everyone. I suppose putting up links here in the forums is prohibited?
Easiest way to add links, is to say 'I have more information in my profile if anyone is interested' (or something like that) and provide the links in your profile - that way you don't get in trouble and you give people a choice to look if they want!
You can post link anytime but be sure it has nothing to do with self promotion...
There are lots of quality hubs here. The only ones I don't care for are the ones that are overly promotional.
Promotion can of course be done in good taste though.
Having a quality content hub is all about relevant info.
if you have a hub titled "Three paragraphs on writing three paragraphs", then three paragraphs should be enough content (just don't make them one line each, its got to be a paragraph), and maybe add some news or books while you're in there, to make it look more complete (that content you didn't produce, but it will make the hub better overall).
Also remember that most times a well marketed (search optimized counts) hub will always make you more money that a great quality hub (although quality hubs tend to get a little promotion themselves because of their quality).
happy new year
There used to be a program called the Flagship Hub program. Given that HubPages was willing to pay for Hubs that followed the format, I've always felt it was a good guide to best practice.
As for subjects - I don't think it's necessary to pick a single subject, and in fact I'd advise against it. I've been surprised by the topics that make money and which don't, so I'd recommend writing on a variety of subjects at first, to work out which is your best niche.

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...

I'm open to suggestions on how to improve my hubs and my traffic. My hubs generate traffic, just not large volumes. I read where a fellow hubber had received over 800 views in a day. The most views I've received is 200+ in a day, and this was only on one hub. It's not happened since then. Any help...

This forum is a place for you to post hubs that you think are clearly of low quality and need flagging. Committed hubbers should follow this forum and check these hubs posted for quality when they have the time. If a hub has been clearly copied (for example from a PDF file that the plagiarism...

I've been looking at the Latest Hubbers and doing a lot of HubHopping lately and noticed a pattern. Based upon some of what I have seen I am making some suggestions. I'm sure HubPages staff and moderators see all sorts of patterns to spam and poorer quality Hubs.Here's some suggestions...
