    I realized that writing for google search is a different skill. It's fascinating that the computer medium requires certain things from a writer.  Searchable titles, keywords, formats, it's all good.

    I have just taken a great deal of time writing and publishing the first chapter of my book, its quality compared to some of my Hubs - well - I think that some of my Hubs were done without much thought - volume rather than quality - so the moral of the story would be write with quality in mind rather than quantity smile

    Due to HP I've discovered many things, aspects about the internet and how it works, that I wouldn't have known otherwise.

    The best advice I can offer to anyone is this: don't come here just to focus on making money or to write. Come here to learn.

    HP has a wealth of information contained within the site. You are among some very talented people. Many of whom share their knowledge. Learn from them:

    Mark Knowles
    relache
    Darkside
    Sunforged
    Misha
    Lissie
    ryankett

    HP provides you with the tools ... it even comes with an instruction manual. Read it - and learn some more.

    And welcome to HubPages smile

      I would second this and add, read, read, read... and not only on the forums.  Read all that hubpages has to offer on writing better and working the system (found under 'learning center', at the bottom of the page).  Take the advice seriously, and make it work for you.

      Don't be afraid to try new things.   Don't get discouraged when the results you want don't come right away.  I try to write from the heart, and not everything is going to have a huge impact.  Some things are rarely searched for, but if they help only one or two people, then I think it is worth the time spent.

    There are so many experienced writers here on hub pages.  They demonstrate what is possible and are generous in their advice.  If you are adopted by some, who take an interest in your progress, it can take away the self doubt of writing on your own.  Plus the forums are hilarious.
