This may sound a little foolish, but... How does one go about discerning the content of the hub. I get the advertising angle, sure, but what is the template for the articles that will sell the product, get the click and make this a worthwhile activity. I have read for 3 days and maybe I have a aneurism, but the logic escapes me... PLease, any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Walt I'm not understanding what you are asking...can you rephrase?
Sorry, I am a little frustrated. I guess I 'm not sure what I'm asking. Are the hubs to be written from whatever strikes your fancy, or are there topics of interest somewhere to be used as templates. Sounds crazy I know but I suppose I shouldn't have read so much into it. I appreciate the quick response, thanks a million Mr. IzzyM
You have the answer right there. You write what you wish to write about. There are no pre-set templates or topics, and you arrange the capsules ae you see fit. The point being to create an attractive looking article.
Missus if you don't mind
Yes as frogdropping says, write about anything you want. It says to write about 350 words but really that is a bit short - 700/1000 words is better normally
Try and choose a title that incorporates words people might actually be searching for.
Hey Walt, welcome to HubPages
Maybe I can help if you can be a bit more specific. I'm not sure what you're wanting to write about. I don't mean topics, I mean are you wanting to share info, write a 'how to' (which do quite well), sell products?
Products: these need to showcase the product, a picture, a link to the product and of course review the product overall.
How to: these do better if they're longer and are interspersed with media, such as your own pictures, and/or videos that are related.
Info: maybe you know a lot about child care and child behavior (for e.g.), so you could share what you know about calming an anxious child, separation anxiety in children. Again use pictures to break up the text.
Travel: if you love travelling or know a lot about it, you can pinpoint specific destinations and places. Use the map capsules, pinpoint great restaraunts, things to do the are free or budget friendly.
Hope that helps in some way
Frogdropping: By the way that is hilarious, anyway I was wondering what to write about I suppose. I can speak to a lot, could always learn more. A couple of places I read, it sounded like there were certain topics to write on. I was not sure if it was a requirement or a suggestion. I think I have the correct formula now. Thanks for the quick response, I owe u 1.

It'd be a totally boring Hub, unless you were able to do a good slant on it.It is about the only subject matter I can see, that during the challenge no one has hit on.So, there ya go a challenge within a challenge write about an egg and spoon race, and I will judge the best one lol.

I see several nicknames on hubpages. some are of course meant to be for the purpose of not revealing what a writer does not want revealed.But what are all the others about?For instance why are you the uninvited writer or dipless or sufi dreamer or red elf or violet sun or laughing mom or glass...

Those who did one - where are you with yours?I did one, four months ago. Yesterday it made $4.85 on it's own. That's not a lot but were it doing just over double per day, I'd be really happy. I haven't back linked, I didn't do anything other than find a highly searched for low paying keyword, and...

I am risking a ban doing this but I still have no qualms in posting it.This was left on a hub that I wrote. I hope you feel ashamed of the effect your words have on others - I doubt this new hubber is alone: Thank you Mr Frogdropping, actually I was about to join the forum yesterday but I couldn`t...

What is more fun? Writing dozens of articles for a niche or writing all sorts of articles from holidays to teeth whitening? And leave aside the fun, what about the money - which has more potential? What would you rather do as a writer on HP - niche writing or free lancing?
