      I viewed your hub on looking young. There is some text that is wrong i=I dont=don't 1$=$1. You may want to use spell check, but keep in mind that spellhck is not perfect.

      And no you don't look your age.

      Also, when I was doing my 1st hub there was a notation that there had to be a minimum of 5 pictures.

      Hope this helps.

        The 5 pic requirement is only for a slideshow. If you don't want to include a slideshow, just unclick the box in the title section--no biggie, you can use as many pics as u want

    A couple of fast observations:

    1. Most of your hubs could benefit from more text and better pictures.

    2. Those that are long enough could benefit from breaking them up into smaller pieces (use extra text capsules) and inserting pics in between.

      Ok I will try to make them better. Can you really make money at this?

        course they can make money. But you need to  have paitians. And also follow Mishas advice it will help you most.

        Yes, you can. But it takes patience and skill. And listening to right people, before you can tell for yourself what works and what not. 5 pics requirement is something that this lady pulled off her belly button smile

          "5 pics requirement is something that this lady pulled off her belly button"

          I'm not sure what your statement means, but I'm gathering that 5 pics is not a requirement?

          I've only done one hub and when I was going through the process there was a box at the top of the screen that said 5 pics needed or the hub was possibly going to be flagged.

          Is it ok to put fewer pics on the hub?

          Thank-you for your help,

              Thank you. I viewed your hub on how to get your hubscores up. It is a helpful piece for beginners.

          What do you mean by off her belly button. I don't understand, I'm a blond you know. LOL

            LOL blonds are cute tongue
            It means it is something that she believed to be true, but it had no relation to reality whatsoever. Saw this expression somewhere recently, and liked it smile

    kmackey--

    See hubs by Maddie Rudd (who makes probably the most off her hubs--reportedly in the $1000 per month area) on how to make $, plus hubs by Chuck (who according to his hub on the subject is making $200-$300). I'm consulting these hubs myself.

    Yes, also--you need to watch the DPI on your photos.  Make them smaller if they are are less than 72 dpi or tiny...it does detract from your articles.

    smile Welcome.

    I can definitely see a BadCompany, C.C., Pest, and goldentoad Blondefest on the horizon, but they're harmless, kmackey! cool

    pics definitely help but I don't think your hub is flagged if you don't have them

      There is no requirement to have any pictures. One is recommended because that is used as thumbnail against your hub in the listings. The person is probably misreading the requirement for 5 pics to have a slide show ... Guys this is a writing site - reading accurately is a useful skill to have
