As a member of Hubpages for 3 weeks, I have only published 2 hubs. I am trying to figure out what has not already been published, and publish on my interests. If anyone has the time and is willing to take a serious look at my Hubs I would greatly appreciate advice on helping to make them better. Thank you for your time, I realize that Hubpages is about quality and I just want to make sure that I am giving that to the Hubber community. Marlene

Happy New Year everyone!
I took a look at your hubs. I definitey don't see any serious problem with them.
I can't say I read them, though, cause those are not my topics of interest, and both your hubs are pretty long. This would be the first recommendation - make them shorter. You might consider splitting them into several hubs, making the central hub with brief description, and several others, linked from the central hub, with more detailed information.
Another observation is you may use less amazon/ebay capsules and more plain pics instead. I doubt amazon and ebay will bring any revenue in a hub like yours, and having to see them every few sentences kind of annoys a bit.
Right now I can't think of anything else, and remember - it is just my personal taste, others may have different opinions
Thank you Misha for your advice, I will remember it for my future hubs...I originally thought I was better off giving more information in each hub than breaking them up! I am sorry that mine are not what you are interested in, but I have 1000 more ideas, hopefully one of them will interest you when I get the chance to write them. I am just trying to work on them one at a time! I really appreciate your input!!! Marlene
You're doing great, Marlene. You have an excellent score for just being here a short time!
Thank you. I really appreciate the feedback. I am working on my third hub now, and can't wait to publish it!!!
I read 2 of your hubs and I liked the contents. You're doing pretty well, just add more photos and videos. Welcome to Hubpages!
I'd suggest to set your amazon and ebay capsules to the right of your text. You have big breaks in the text now, and it would just be easier to read, overall, if everything blended a little better. The capsules wouldn't stand out as bad, either. Or you could set two capsules side by side, where you just have the one; in that case I'd make the minimum quantity 2 or 3 instead of 4 for each capsule.
I reviewed your Hubs and echo the comments above. They look great.
I thought your titles were strong,,, clear, concise and direct. Your hubs had lots of rich content,
I agree that you should move the Amazon ads to the right side of the text and also should shrink down the photos and videos. There is too much space between the text and a reader may think that the Hub has ended if they don;t scroll down.
Best of luck with your Hubs!
Hi Marlene, you also have the option to EDIT your hubs if you want to make changes or add more , etc.
Everyone has provided great information and the tribute to your father was a tear jerker and so hearfelt!!! Keep up the goodwork and I am looking forward to more articles!!
Thank you for all of your advice. I just got home from Mexico and got to see the replies. I am going to try to figure out how to move the Amazon things to the right and to shrink the photos and videos. Thanks again to everyone!

I just happened to be viewing one of my hubs that has been deemed a sleeper, and I noticed that the Amazon and Ebay advertisements in the capsules displayed on the hub has been increased in size. This alarms me,...

I got a poorly worded to the point of being offensive email from the team about one of my hubs that got unpublished. I replied with a request for clarification. Almost 24 hours passed since. I am wondering, how long I...

In many previous forum posts there have been people who have given up hope with their Ebay and Amazon capsules on their hubpages, because they don't earn any money from them, some have even removed the capsules from...

In light of the latest Hubpages blog post, can I safely assume that any non-sales hubs would benefit from the removal of Amazon capsules altogether?These are capsules which likely earn me next to nothing for 10 months...
