I have just started a second Hubpages account to concentrate on 'selling' rather than being a mixed bag. I have produced two hubs so far. The idea is to have a main World Cup 2010 merchandise hub, and then spin-off merchandise hubs for each of the 32 teams competing. (So far I have one spin-off).
I'll be grateful if you can take a look at the main hub and the spin-off hub (England). Can you let me know:
1) Is it too commercial?
2) Does the way I link to the separate England Merchandise Hub work (See the list of teams competing and click on the + next to it).
3) Should I mingle the ebay ads more.
4) Is it a good idea to actually provide a link to each team's FIFA page.
5) Any other advice on improving the format and layout?
Thanks in advance.
It looked a bit too much commercial to me at least but I am no authority on Amazon/EBay hubs so you better wait for more replies before editing it.
Thanks Ultimate Hubber - I've reorganized and hopefully now have the basis of a good informational / commercial hub - I have added information on many temas and created a separate hub for each team - so hopefully it's a lot better! I obviously have to create hubs for all the teams.....let me know if it's an improvement...or if I should just hang up my coat!!!
My only suggestion would be to write a little bit more, in a few text modules, and the put two amazon ad units side by side, each selling one product, between each set of text boxes.
That way your product lists are not overwhelming, you can keep them related to each area of text, and in my experience that layout gives a much greater number of sales!
Nelle Hoxie is the guru of selling Hubs - I suggest you take a look at her Hubs. I know she's said that she writes at least 800 words and recently she's upped that to 1,500 words because that seems to work better - it's a common misconception that a selling Hub doesn't need a lot of information.
The alternative is to write a group of Hubs 400 to 500 words long and interlink them - similar effect.

Had never done a “sales” hub before so decided to try. Have tweaked and tweaked this hub but it still keeps on being not featured due to quality. Getting a little T’d . . . http://geminifox.hubpages.com/hub/Green...

OK, while I'm new to Hub Pages, I have been writing professionally for over 30 years, mostly as a journalist/reviewer, and thus I have many passions about which I write (Comicbooks, Film TV, etc.) So the question I have...

I have had a few poems receive non-featured status. I've been able to revive them by adding a couple of text paragraphs to expound on the topic of the poem while maintaining the integrity of the poem. It lengthens the...

Hello Hubbers! I was wondering if there is a recommended maximum length for a hub? I started writing one, and then realized that I have enough information to write a book. So I decided to break the info into eight parts...

Do i want my hub to be considered commercial? Or is that a bad thing?

Am active on the forums, and getting a few new fans and joining up with a few writers...things look good. Then when I post a new hub my points go down 2-3 points and creep back up within 2-3 days. Does...
