Is content king?
After all the discussions about unique content and its value, I would like to share something with everyone.
It so happens I do believe content is king, and I wanted to do a little bragging and prove the point at the same time. I know this is not a hubpage, but the same applies, and I certainlt learned how important this is here. I wrote a page recently with some photos of a boat I saw while out on a birthday celebration. Luxury yacht "A" - here is what subsequently happened - so far
Dark roasted blend linked to the post and sent a lot of visitors
Craig McClain, a blogger for Discovery Channel like it and linked sending a lot of traffic
This caught some one's eye at Gizmodo who also linked, and send an awful lot of traffic. Although I was a little miffed at how many photos they took, I forgave them because of the amount of traffic they are sending.
This was followed soon after by Gizmodo Australia, Gizmodo Japan, and Gizmodo France - All of which are sending lots of traffic
At the same time, some one wrote it up for a Swiss online newspaper - Zisch where it sat as the main story on their front page for two days, and is still sending traffic
Also, some one submitted it to SU and they have also sent large numbers of visitors, and it is the subject of discussions on at least 20 forums that I am aware of.
I asked for one link. Content is King? It is in this case - I am not writing the same tired old stuff that has been written a zillion times. Every single one of my hubpages is written by me with the express intention of providing the best possible resource on that subject. Be it a hamburger recipe or Forex trading advice. <snipped hub links -- enough promotion for one thread without them >
Mark, I see I`m the first to reply to this thread. I am pretty impressed by the number on links that you got just for one post. I am sure the article was great, because I`ve read it a while back. But it`s amazing that Gizmodo, Dicovery and all the others have been on your tail all at the same time. Content is definitely king, and that will never change.
I would point something out but, I just don`t want to spoil the hole thing up. Congrats for that blog, it`s one of the greatest I`ve read so far.
I`ve opened a thread yesterday about one of my best performing hubs How To Make Your Computer Run Faster in 3 Simple Steps.
householdhacker linked to my hub within 2 hours it went live and sent in no more no less than 1400 visitors over the past 7 days.
Alex - thanks. But feel free to say what ever - I will unlikely be offended
Misha - I know - I asked for one link.
terence - thanks
Your hubpages do what theypromise in the headline - they deliver great guides to the topic. I didn't know it's possible to put links on the right side like with your Forex Trading hub..I will check it out. So, great info + great links + great small tips = success, eh?
Content is king - but you have to be noticed too! I like the piece (but the swimming pools still my personal fav http://blog.luxuryproperty.com/luxury-r … ing-pools/) but the reality is that that blog is being picked up aggregator programs feeds - which I imagine people like gizmodo do is search the web for new ideas.
Also to for many people bulk traffic is not that useful: what most of us need is targetting motivated, cashed up traffic just desparate to buy our product/click our add/sign up whatever
Mark, I saw the tutorial how to reorder the lens. However, on your http://hubpages.com/hub/Forex-Trading-a-guide hubpage right you have:
"Buy the rumor, sell the fact." on the right with a youtube video. How did you make that?
Also, Spreads in Forex Trading on the right, how did you make that in blue? I haven't found any capsule to do that. Regards
That is another text capsule, floated to the right with a Youtube capsule underneath it. When you float the text capsules over, you can change the background color.
wow that's great...creativity to its peak. Since seeing your Forex Guide I'm sure Hubpages can reach the same 'elegant' design as Squidoo.

Think of this.People say, content is the king in Hubs (or anywhere where you write articles and aim to get Adsense revenue).If I write a good article containing rich info on the subject, people will read it, get the info they wanted, appreciate it and go away.But if I write a "keyword"...

It appears that I am what is known as a "keyword stuffer".I use as many keywords as possible, in the belief that my hub will show up in more searches.It appears that this could be completely the wrong strategy. Would anybody that knows about this stuff recommend that I start from scratch...

I noticed that when I checked my backlinks all of the ones from hubpages were 'nofollow' links. Should this be the case? (I've written several articles and I'd hate not to be getting the most out of them.) Or do I need to change something in the HTML coding linking the anchor text to my website? If...

I read mixed opinions about back linking hubs, I guess Google algorithm considering lot of things to rank the page well besides backlink. What you think? is back link really helped you to rank well? or without any back link a good content(with 1000 words) will rank? share your experience

This is long, so here's the bottom line: Basically, my problem is I want to build a site around the same topics and keywords I've done well with here on HP, but I don't want to do anything that would damage the work I've already posted here.I have a couple of niche HubPages accounts that do okay....

One of the weakness in forum boards is that its difficult to trace whether a post have been made on certain topic.When I do a "forex" searh all that was shown were whose hubs touched on forex.So I hope someone can respond to my topic... please
