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.

In all the time I've been writing on the web (first started on Amazon in 2004), I've never been any good at selling products on the web. I don't know why that is. I know people who make a packet at promoting products on...

How do I get over 1,000 views across all of my articles? I know you told me many times to write, and write until I get up to 50 or 70 articles. How exactly do I know what to write or what to research? How do I expect to...

I write how-to and recipe hubs. I know the recipe hubs will make money eventually but I have read that technical hubs get more views. What is your thoughts or experience on this topic?
