Hey guys, I'm a new member her for about a week now.
I would love some criticism on my hubs, and any tips you guys have to offer!
It would be extremely appreciated, thanks so much!!
Hah... great thread title.
Not that I'm a wise one of course.
I read your college hub, not the others.
I thought it was pretty well laid out.
Could be a bit longer, maybe. That's a good thing though - in that I would have been happy to read a bit more. So your style is good - imo. And the layout was easy enough on the eyes.
I think your tags were a bit rubbish. Too vague. It's OK if you want a variety of uninterested people looking at your page, but I don't see any point in that. I try to have few well targeted tags - but hey, that's just my preference.
The real judge is search traffic, and Analytics metrics. Don't ask me, research it.
For more learning, some would say go to the learning centre - I would say look at a variety of either top hubs, or top authors - just to get a feel of how they present their writing.
Then do your own thing.
And never take any notice of me.
Thanks for the tips Mark.
I'll try to center my tags a bit more, and your writing style is pretty original haha! Enjoyed reading a few of your hubs!
Still not getting the whole seo thing too well however
You can spend forever reading a load of mostly rubbish advice on SEO across the web. There are some, very few, good qualified people but finding them is hard.
My current method is to remember what I am looking for when I search, and if there isn't much on that, or I think I can do better - to write it.
I do think the basics are...
1. What are you writing about?
2. How would people search for it?
3. What is the competition out there when you do a Google search yourself?
It's not good giving yourself a funky or whacky title that doesn't match the content.
But hey. I'm going on. There will be plenty of experts along shortly.

I've just finished boot camp recently and I feel like I have started my journey.I have yet to achieve any meaningful kind of traffic to my hubs, but I figure I'm just starting out and these things take time. My question to everyone is how do you find the most success on HubPages.What resources...

Hello, hubpages! I'm new, and I've completed and published my first hub (though it still does not seem to be indexed on the site), that I've written in exploration of the Enlightenment philosopher Voltaire. I hope to continue learning and writing about this fascinating man and his...

I calculated that if my page views continue at their current rate, I'll get my first payout in 2016!!! I better go get back to happy hubbing. Also, received my first Zzz tonight, a sleepy poem. Ho hum. Forgive my humorous cynicism but I do believe that as I produce more quality-optimized and search...

Hi all,I've been here a month now and have 20 hubs, but when I read some of the forum posts I am worried that my traffic is low. I have had around 680 views total for all of my 20 hubs which averages about 6 per day for most of them, on average. I know it takes time to build up traffic and I am...

If we only produce content that people are searching for, will this lead to better quality content ? Will this lead to the growth of the knowledge base? How will new knowledge enter the mainstream if content is only developed to satisfy current demand?

As promised here in my first HubChallenge forum post, I'm going to be using the time that we have until the official start of the 30 Hubs in 30 Days HubChallenge (on this Friday, July 24th) to help all of you publish Hubs that have the most opportunity possible. For this first day I decided to...
