    I believe a quality hub can be produced if the effort is put forth and time is taken to proof read, edit, proof read #2 and if necessary edit #2. Quality hubs come from people who do their homework, follow instructions, choose topics that coincide with their knowledge already aquired and research to add more. somewhere here in knowledge exchange, there is that question, What is a quality hub? And seasoned hubwriters have answered that question with many wonderful thoughts about that. every persons writing has character that speaks, style that makes them stand out and appeal that others are looking for. The main goal in writing is to capture the reader, hold them in your words for a while and when they are done, know that they are using some incredible adjective to describe what they've just experienced. My personal opinion only!
    My idea of a perfect hub is to write with personal expression and be informative, inspiring, complete yet not long winded. Display pictures, video clips ( not too many though) and just be well rounded in giving the reader something good. The perfect hub is not perfect until it spreads through the hub community far and fast, becomes a must read for many and everyone that reads it has something really good to say about it. Feel free all you most excellent hub creators to jump o here and back me up, critics of my ideals, your comment is welcomed too! Just don't go overboard. I have written that perfect hub yet, but as my fellow writers say it, be patient and practice. It will come and when it does, you will know.
    Consultants make lots of money these days, so now, I'm looking for a check in the mailbox, HUBPAGES! Just kidding !!
    Good luck new hubbers and those of you who've been hubbing here for a while too!

      HubPages have said what they think is a perfect Hub - it's a Flagship Hub:

      I disagree on the bit about spreading through the community, though.  Once your Hubs are established, the vast majority of your readers (90%) come from search engines.  Many of those readers never comment - so judging your success by reader feedback will give you a distorted view.

        You're right, I'm of base on that part. I agree, search engines give presence to readers and they do not all comment. I digress. Thanks Marisa

    1. Nothing is so perfect that it cannot be improved.

    2. Criteria of "perfection" will depend on the objective with which the hub was written. The closer a hub meets its primary criterion, the nearer it comes to perfection. I consider, for example, that the following criteria are mutually exclusive:
    - Poetic excellence
    - Scientific analysis, backed up with citations from the scientific literature
    - Product reviews and product marketing
    - Arguing for a cause about which the author feels passionately
    - Targeting a topic to please the majority of readers

    I'm sure people can add other competing criteria if they wish.

    A perfect Hub is one that achieves the results desired by the author. 

    Which means there's no one definition, it's going to vary from writer to writer.

    Perfect Hub is one where the information is rich, readability excellent, genuine readers from Hubpages give believable appreciation ==and == external traffic is meager and adsense clicks are zero!!!
