Quick tips for hubpages
BRAINSTORMING FOR NEW HUBS
- Make hubs from school, college, etc assignments you have saved (make sure its individual assignments, homework not group ones to avoid any potential legal issues)
- Use keyword research (Google Keyword tool)
- Use HubKarma Suggest Link for brainstorming new hubs.
- Use Wikipedia random article feature for brainstorming (it’s on the left navigational bar.)
- Make a glossary of words for the topic you are most interested in. Then write a hub about each term in that glossary.
- Use longtail keywords (=more then one word; long phrases) to optimize for Google BreadCrumbs
- Use names of people, places, products, etc as keywords
- Never use general words as keywords (like finance, Internet, etc)
- Write your own "Summary Text" for each of your hub. Use some keywords in it
- Save each of your hubs (and all corresponding pictures, etc) in a separate folder on your computer in a folder called Hubs.
- Have a folder called IDEA BANK FOR HUBPAGES.
- Have a folder called WORK IN PROGRESS within your above mentioned idea bank forder. Save here any hubs you have started working on.
- Anything you have written on the web elsewhere, make them into hubs.
- Save your published hubs in a Word document in a folder called "PUBLISHED HUBS" (these will be your backup files)
- Save your files at more than one location (pendrive, computer, etc)

- Use HubKarma Suggest Link on your lowest performing hubs (in terms of traffic and HubScore).
- Try to write at least 500 words long hubs.
- Know your purpose; do you want best-, hot-, or money making hubs.
- Check the best- and the hottest hubs. Study them to figure out how to improve your hubs.
- Add videos capsules to possibly ALL your hubs. Google loves multimedia content.

- Uncheck "This hub may be considered promotional"
