I published Hub number 100. I can not express my appreciation and graditute enough to all of the Hubbers who have provided a variety of Hubs that helps us newbies. To thank everyone individually, that would be Hub within itself. I just will say that you.
I'm a little confused, because looking at your Hubs, I can't see much sign that you've done much research on how to write good Hubs.
First, your content must be unique. Copying stuff that is already published elsewhere, even if it belongs to you, won't work on HubPages.
Second, crafting a Hub means writing good content and finding good, legal photos and video clips to illustrate it. I wrote a Hub on how to optimize your Hubs (you'll find it on my profile). I recommend you read it and do some of the other research suggested, then spend a week or two revising all your existing Hubs before you write any more.
Stealing content doesn't take that much time. No surprise he/she hit the 100 mark in 5 weeks. She'll probably steal another hundred over the next month.
I guess I take it back then...
Edit: Dumb Q but how do you know they're dupes? Put a few into google and they didn't come up with anything the same. Or do you mean spun?
I went to three different hubs and took one to two sentences from the middle of the hub and Googled those. Two out of the three came back word for word from other sites. They were not quoted or attributed.
I'm not going to waste my time to keep on Googling when 2 out of 3 random checks came back stolen.
Edited to add: I just checked some more, and much of her content is spun, which is perfectly fine. In the small bunch I looked at, I found large chunks taken verbatim, hence my quickness to accuse her.
Not to mention, I went to about 12 different hubs and none of them were of quality. Each were too short, and the writing was so bland, many lack originality, just by reading.
Anyone can crank out 100 hubs in 5 weeks, but quality and originality is what makes it all work.
Content is KING!
I'd offer congratulations, but then I wouldn't be me. Honest!
Thank you for taking the time to make comments to my forum post.
Wordsscriber, hope you know that Irohner and Cagsil are providing you with some profound advice, although it might be a little hard to receive right now. However, content is truly King.
You've accomplished a milestone of 100 hubs in five weeks; but they appear to be under 500 words with little substance being provided to the reader. Which means you will probably have low hubscores and fewer readers. Which means in the next 5 weeks you'll probably be attempting to write another 100 hubs, only to get the same results.
Here's a great hub to learn tips on getting on the front page of Google and in turn making money with adsense for the long-term rather than the short term. http://hubpages.com/hub/How-I-got-my-hu … first-page by Mark Knowles
I appreciate any constructive advice that will help me improve writing skills. Thank You for your comment.
You're welcome! You might want to check out some of SunForged and Darkside's hubs on making money online in addition to Mark Knowles. All are successful here on HP and I've learned a lot from them as well as others here. You can also submit a couple of your hubs to the Extreme Hub Makeover forum to get help and constructive advice; as well. Good luck and much success to you.

I've noticed that when it comes to traffic, my hubs on network sites (ex. turbofuture, pairedlife) perform a lot better than my hubs on hubpages.com. I'm just wondering if there are certain ways we can do to increase the views for these hubs other than just sharing them on social media. I'm asking...

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...

What are your HubPages goals for the next year? Income, number of hubs published, writing goals?

I've never had only 1 $ on a hub before! This week end I published my first short story and thought the 1 $ was because short story hubs pay terribly low - even lower than poetry hubs! Then I published another hub in my usual genre that typically yields 3 $$$. I only got 1 $ for...
