Greetings Hubbers: I am new to HP and I have finally written my third hub. My gut tells me I am missing something. Currently I have not added any photos, links, videos, etc. Do you think that that is what they are missing? Or content or the way that it is written? I would appreciate any feedback I can get.
We definitely encourage adding additional media to strengthen your message. Check out our guide to creating a Stellar Hub for some ideas: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Elem … tellar-Hub
hi Eva, can you give link to your hub? I'm happy to help you
You should have at least one photo in your hub. It doesn't need to be professional. Any fitting image will do so long as it's not watermarked or very blurry or pixelated. It's nice to have a poll capsule in a hub. Makes the hub more interactive and keeps the readers there longer. Same for the video capsule. You don't need it but it won't hurt to include it. Just not sure which videos you are allowed to include as never done this myself.
Welcome to HubPages, the community here is fantastic and very helpful.
Alongside photos and other capsules, you should use headings to break up your text into nice sized chunks. You should also double check your spelling and grammar. Once you have written more hubs, provided they are related you should link them. I also add a small explanation of why a reader should click on my link and what they should expect to read. Good luck and happy hubbing!
For free professional photos that you are allowed to download and use, check out freedigitalphotos.net and Wikemedia. However, you need to attribute your images so provide the author and website.
Welcome to HubPages and just to let you know that the community here are very kind, helpful and enthusiastic so do not hesitate should you have any problems that you want to ask about or make a post. Happy hubbing and best wishes for the future!
I read your credit card hub and found it very interesting and informational. The suggestions in this forum will certainly help get it more reads. At least one photo at the beginning of the hub, headings in between paragraphs, and/or some bullets when making your points. It sometimes just takes time to be found.
Also eva, get out there and read some hubs and leave some comments so others know you are here. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Good luck.

Hi, I'm new here, and, well... a fairly young, inexperienced and new writer. With some encouragement from Shadesbreath, I started writing and churned out four mediocre hubs and I'm not sure where to go from there....

I am sort of disappointed. I try to be active in the site as much as possible, comment on other people's hubs, help out in the forums, add new hubs once every two weeks, participate in the question and answer and...

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in...

We added the Pinterest "Pin It" button to the small collection of popular social-sharing buttons at the top of Hubs on Thursday. Pinterest has rapidly become one of the largest social media traffic drivers to...

I just visited a Hub yesterday by a new Hubber. It was called "Hate Trumps Hate." The author is a conservative, but did not vote for Trump. She was writing about the persecution she and other...
