    I have just joined in Hubpages so there are many unclear to me. I find many difficulties in writing an attractive hub while in fact, I have many things to share.
    Can you give me some advices tio keep writing.

      Hi, I'm new here too, but I've found the easiest way to approach writing hubs is to take it at your own pace and put your heart into it. It doesn't matter how many hubs a week or a day anyone else writes. How many quality hubs can you create and still enjoy the experience? Personally I'm happy with producing two or three a week.
      Also I've found that being a part of HubPages is about more than just writing hubs. It's about interacting with other hubbers, by reading their work and giving honest feedback. Answering questions and maybe asking some too. I've only been here for three weeks and when I started, it all felt overwhelming with what seemed like a lot to learn and I doubted my own ability to become a part of this community. It is very much a case of you get out what you put into Hubpages.
      Goodluck, I'm sure you'll do just fine.

        yup, thank you!
        as you said, i think the key success is "put a deep enthusiasm into every written hubs".
        I hope to share further and improve my writing skill. May be, luckily, you and me have some Hubs Of the Day, right?

    It's better to learn how to write a single hub that gets you 100 views, rather than 100 hubs that get you one view each per day.

    That said, the best way to go is write about things you know and that interest you. The sky is the limit when it comes to the number of hubs. Some hubbers have been known to write more than five per day. Others spend five days researching and compiling a single hub.

      It's a mystery to me.   I spent days researching Butterflies, did a Hub on their life cycle and no body cares to read it!  I make a Hub out of some poem that I wrote in 15 min. and people love it and view it.  So, you just never know.....

        There are two types of traffic - internal (from other hubbers, which falls off after a few days) and external (from search engines, which starts slowly but builds over time).

        When it comes to attracting traffic from search engines, you have to remember that some topics are either saturated (there are hundreds of articles on them) or not searched (no one is typing that particular topic into Google.) You can learn about keywords to find out how to identify well searched topics.

    I am only two months here. I don't keep a target like how many hubs per week. The challenge is to produce quality content and to provide the readers with something interesting. But truly I enjoy writing and I feel good that I am a part of this community.

    I am new too and have decided to aim for one or two a week.  It's amazing, once I got started, several ideas have come to mind - more than I thought!

    I'm new here also, but have done some writing on other sites.

    The best advice I received was to keep a notebook to record thoughts and ideas as they come to you.

    Also, to keep several (not too many) stories started at any one time, unpublished. Then, you always have something to fall back on.

    Another good idea, and I'm not sure if they have it on this site, is to review other people's work, checking for grammar, style etc, just so that you have something to do.

      wixor , when you have the time, Hop some Hubs.  That way you can read new Hubs and learn from them,  and even flag them if you see something like bad grammar, or any other reason you think a moderator would like to see and follow up on.  If I see one with bad grammar, misspelled words, etc. I flag it.  Go to "Hubbers", they are the best!  Read their work and learn from them.  Welcome and good luck!
