I registered a few hours ago on Hub pages due to hearing so many good things about it. So I decided to give a hub a go. I have finished my first Hub and I'm relatively pleased with it. But because it was my first attempt I know it wont compare with others! So please could you give me some tips on how to improve it thanks.
It is too short and offers nothing to the reader.
There is no real information on it and it seems to be written for the sole purpose of driving traffic to another site.
So, I would suggest adding some actual content to it. If you are looking to write a great hub that is.
If you are not interested in that and just want to drive traffic else where - leave it as is.
Ok Well I have only had the time to put 1 articles on at the moment, but i have got 3 or 4 more to add. How many do you suggest? Is there anywhere i can advertise the hub page?
The forums here are for discussion, not advertising.
Besides, internal traffic (other HubPages writers) don't click on ads.
You need outside traffic, ideally from search engines. That requires a good amount of relevant content and then backlinks anchored with relevant text.
Article directories are a good way to get backlinks, and blogs, as well as posting in forums which allow signatures with links.
Do you have any good article directoies for me to submit to?
I have Hub on the subject:
http://hubpages.com/hub/What-Are-The-Be … e-Articles
Make sure you read and understand editorial guidelines before submitting articles.
I found this very informative(and somewhat lengthy) Hub that was written by Hal with regards to writing a great Hub and actually getting some views for it as well.
Here you go:
Hal's Tips: Writing For Hub Page Views
Also, Hal is a guy who has really nailed down a topic and has seen some great results because of it. Great Hubbing definitely takes some time, but there are definitely some ways to make your Hub more attractive to the search engine gods.
Take a read and let me know what you think.
