Religion and Philosophy Template

Updated on October 21, 2014

Creating Successful Hubs on Religion and Philosophy

To create Hubs within the Religion and Philosophy Topic that have good odds of seeing sustained, long-term traffic, we recommend creating Hubs:

  • That provide a lot of information on a particular subject
  • That answer common questions about a particular religion or philosophy
  • That have search-friendly titles (see our guide to creating successful, search-friendly titles for more information)
  • That are evergreen (and will be just as relevant five years from now as they are today)

Please avoid the common pitfalls- and properly attribute images from external sources!

Common Mistakes to Avoid

Many Hubs on religion and philosophy tend to flounder for the following reasons:

  • They have a high proportion of duplicate content (e.g. religious quotes and recitation of religious passages)
  • They lack concrete information
  • They are not reader friendly (not easy to find information, not easy to skip around, not packed with a lot of actionable advice)
  • They are purely personal (not something that would interest someone who does not already know and care about the author)

So be sure to avoid these pitfalls!

Finding the Right Images to Use

Many Hubbers have trouble finding images for their Hubs discussing religious or philosophical issues. Though it might be difficult to come up with original images (images that you created and own) that are relevant to these subjects, there are a litany of royalty free, Public Domain, and Creative Commons images you can use.

Great resources include:

Just be sure to only use images that have licenses permitting you to use them, and be sure to provide proper attribution.


Utilize Videos to Provide Supplementary Information

To keep your Hub from seeming too one-sided, we recommend including insights from outside sources. You can do so by...

  • Referencing and linking to insights from leaders in fields relevant to the subject at hand
  • Including videos created by experts sharing additional information and insights

Consider Referring to Objective Educational Resources

Don't Forget to Add Search-Friendly Subtitles!

Though it is absolutely imperative that your Hub's title is search friendly, it also helps that the subtitles of various capsules within your Hub are short, descriptive, and reflective of common search terms.

Should the title of your Hub be: "Common Themes of Ancient Greek Philosophy", good subtitles might include:

  • Themes of Pre-Socratic Philosophy
  • Who Were the Most Important Classical Greek Philosophers?
  • The Effect of Islam on Greek Philosophy


Give Your Readers a Chance to Weigh In

There are two primary ways you can invite your readers to engage with your work:

  • By asking them to share their thoughts and opinions through the Poll Capsule
  • By asking them to provide additional insights, questions, and opinions by leaving comments via the Comments Capsule

Did you know that you can change the subtitle of your Comments Capsule to turn it into a more specific prompt? Consider using it to ask your readers specific questions. You may very well get inspiration for future Hubs!
