    How to be successful on hubpages as an experience based writer?

    (It may help if you take a look at my obstacles before giving me advice). It has been difficult so far.

    Hi Aristotle!

    If by successful you mean "rich", writing isn't typically the best venue. That's not to say that there's no money to be made here, just something to keep in mind.

    But if you mean having plenty of views and followers, keep publishing high quality content. After 20-30 Hubs, you can apply for a Google Adsense account and start earning. Within the community, you can get noticed by answering questions and participating in forums.

    Starting off is probably the hardest step, but once you get that Adsense, it all becomes worth it.

      Gotcha. I checked out your profile, keep doing what you're doing: writing and improving. It takes time, but you'll get there!

    Do your best. Edit, then edit some more. Also look into keywords and SEO in order to drive traffic to your articles. Are the topics you choose to write about something that people will be searching for? You may need to evaluate your target audience and  write for them, versus writing for yourself. I hope that helps, and best of luck in your future writing!

      Heywords and SEO, google adwords and things like that?

      Keywords are certain words and phrases that rank in searches. SEO is 'Search Engine Optimization'. There's a lot more to writing on the internet, that just writing in general.
