The Best Way to Write for Hubpages

Updated on June 23, 2011

Why write for Hubpages? What topics can you write about? You may ask. HubPages is essentially an article writing site and your articles can be on whatever subject you prefer to write on. As you experience, working as a freelance writer provides a certain amount of flexibility that traditional jobs lack. However, it can be frustrating, boring, and downright tedious at times. Particularly on the days you are upset from writer's block or only do not feel like writing.

You can write about anything, your favorite subjects, thoughts, beliefs, the current trends, news, whatever your interests may be or write what you know or what you love. Following up with new ideas is always a big challenge for article writers. My suggestion is to keep an ongoing list of topics that you could write around. Find your own style, open your hidden talent. Being creative one can turn out each and every little to big happenings into a great play of phrases. Remember, there's only one person who can make sure that you are a successful freelance writer. YOU

Time is money and I don't like to throw away money. But once used time can never be used again, what's gone has gone away. Okay, there is the pleasure to write. So do take the time and effort to craft an article that will keep your readers well familiar, and one that they will love reading as well.

Writing rules are very reasonable, submitting original content is best of course, five hundreds words per article is recommended, add videos, or pictures to your articles to make them more interesting, and bookmark to your hearts content. Write a valuable length of hub. Sometimes hubs are short as there's not much to write, but try not to scrimp. Think you can edit them at any point in the potential, so revisit your old hubs and tweak them, add a bit more if you can. Make them suitable of a read.

Do a search on HubPages on the subject you would like to write about and search to find how many hubs are already published about the same topic. If there are a lot of hubs on that particular topic, your hub will not be available to see and will likely end up towards the last of the list. By learning a niche that does not have many hubs published on a particular subject, and the better your hub is, the smarter it will get to the top of the list where more people will see it.

Google offers a good tool that shows how many times in a month people have searched for particular keywords or phrases. Use this tool to add these fullest ranking key words to your hubs then more people will see them. Keep in mind when coming up with a title for the article to use words that people would really search for. Spend as much time as is possible to research your article before starting to write and read a lot, the more you learn the more you open your thought process. Don't forget to run your article through the spellchecker on your word processor as well. After you have complete your article, do take a few minutes to give your article a once over to correct any grammatical errors.

Writers have a tendency in the beginning to spend too much time reading about how to write instead of doing it. Please share your success story with us and leave a comment here. So, we can learn together.

      You're right: Just start writing rather than spending yur time reading about writing. I'm new to HubPages, but that advice works with all sorts of writing.
