My G: drive is finally working on my laptop again, and I came across a reminder to myself about improving the quality of my hubs. It reads as follows:
Excellent grammar and spelling. Pay special attention to cases in your title and subtitles; this is one area where mistakes are common.
Current and correct information. Check the latest news, peer-reviewed journals, and other credible sources for new information on your subject.
Free of spammy elements (Hubs should contain no unrelated or tangentially related links, excessive products, etc).
High-quality, clear, attractive images (avoid pixelated images, blurry images, and images with watermarks).
Search-friendly and descriptive subtitles.
A relevant summary.
A mobile-optimized layout. Making all capsules full-width can make a big difference for mobile.
I confess, I have never received a 100 score on a hub, though I've had a couple Hub-of-the-Day awards. Maybe it's time to take these tips a little more seriously and try writing some more hubs, which have been few and far between for the past year or so.
Set your standards high and have fun!
@Jodah, Sakina, and SimpleHappy, thank you for supportive comments. Blessings!
