      West, HubPages is not a blogging site - please don't refer to your Hub as a blog, because it gives non-Hubbers the wrong idea. A Hub is a magazine-style article.

    As a woman, I find the title and the entire hub insulting to women.

    Sorry, but I find this unacceptably patronising! Your hub implies that you assume most women are idiots.

    Yes, I admit I get phased by gadgets and technology. I'm of the generation that grew up without them. However my (male) partner gets even more phased by them than I do. In our household, I am the one who generally fights with and eventually comes to understand a new piece of equipment. Then I tell him what to do to work it.

    Forgot to add, I inevitably boycott suppliers who take this sort of attitude towards me just because I am a woman.

    Maybe I'm the wrong woman to ask, because I usually go behind my husband and rewire all these things, but I found it insulting too. Perhaps the women you deal with are just not too bright. But anyway....

    You have no key words in the first part of your hub. It sort of meanders along. You need to get the keywords in there or it will never be found.

    Your title will probably never be searched. I'm a woman and I would not go to google and search ladies and home theatre system together. I might google home theatre operation or something like that. And I know no women who call themselves ladies. This could be a cultural thing, but I have never heard it used except among preschoolers because we say to them "Go ask that lady"

    You need to go to google keyword tool, type in home theatre system, and see what people are actually searching for. Then write a hub using those keywords.

    You have universal remotes for sale on your page. Why not just gear the whole thing to universal remotes? Go on about the the benefits of owning a universal remote and maybe say something about the features of the ones on your page. If you find some cool colorful remotes then you could have a universal remotes for women page. I know I'm tired of all our black remotes that look the same and blend in with the furniture so I can't find them.

    Just a few thoughts for you. Good luck.

    I didn't see the original, but it looks like a nice hub now.

      Thank you - I have made many changes from the original - I've learned a lot this week and have a feeling the learning curve will be a long one.
