    Hi everyone. I am quite new to Hubpages and am wondering if you guys have any tips to improve my articles and create more traffic. Also, do we have a community in where we can follow each other?

      Hi there, welcome.

      There are a lot of resources for new (and not-so-new) writers here:

      And yes, you can follow other writers and they can follow you. However, if you want to earn from your articles, it's more important to attract search engine traffic.

      Good luck.

        I am very new to blogging, do you have tips on how to use SEO for attracting search traffic? Is this something we can do on the settings?

          HubPages isn't a blogging platform; it's for stand alone, magazine-style articles of around 1,000 words. Your titles, subtitles and content are your best SEO strategies.

          Read the articles at the Learning Center and explore the network sites to get an idea of what works smile

      I havve to disagree with those hubbers who are encouraging you to "just write".  Don't waste your time writing anything until you have spent time reviewing the articles in the Learning Center.  They will tell you everything you need to know to be a successful writer on HubPages.  Good luck and welcome!

    In the beginning what I can suggest is write more hubs. Everything will follow soon.

      True. It's always good to just get out there and start producing. Once you've got a decent-sized body of work, then you can really cook.

      It's good to keep in mind things like SEO and whatnot, but just keep producing.

    This is not a blogging platform. It is a place for accomplished writers to publish magazine-style, information-rich articles of at least 1,000 words.

    All of the information you are asking about is available in the Learning Center.

    I say to write and learn at the same time.  Read on the learning center and then practice what you learn.  There are good SEO articles by lobobrandon and others.  Over time I have read one of them then practiced, then read another and practiced.  You can also learn a lot just by following the forum.

    Read other's work.  Find a few that you really enjoy and start following them.
    Try your best.  Submit work and keep posting new ones.
    You will get there.

    Hi Jeshea. As others have advised, check out the Learning Center (a link can be found under "Help.") There is a lot to go through but it does answer almost all the questions you may have. Then start writing more hubs/articles. Yes, there is a great community here. Once you start reading other people's articles and following the ones whose work appeals to you many will read yours in return. You will soon feel part of the community.

    Thanks everyone for your insights. I'll keep these in mind and will try to produce quality articles.
