Now you can start with your hub. choose a title for your hub. If your title is unique, you can proceed with the address or "URL" but it usually auto generate as long as your hub title is not yet taken by another hubber.

HubPages is a website that demands quality user generated content, which means, it shouldn't be "copy-paste" from another website, or else it will be marked as duplicate or unpublished by the moderator.

  • Next is choose which category your hub belongs. Click "browse" to find which category best describes your title and content.
  • Then choose your layout and add some tags that is relevant to your topic. I noticed more hubs choose the first lay out. I also choose the later since photos can catch the attention of the reader.
  • Note: Adsense ads is located at the right upper portion of the page. If in case you choose to have photos at the upper right, the adsense ads will be post just below your photos so no worries.
