I am new and I do not know a lot about hubs. Please chech out my hub page and tell me if I did things correctly? http://hubpages.com/t/178991 Thank you, Rose
I agree with lrohner. The little photo of the tree spirit house isn't placed well. I believe I'd move it much farther down. And instead, put more relevant Amazon capsules closer to the top. You can have lots more Amazon items, especially if you break up the capsules. People won't see the Amazon ads if they are below the comments section.
Nicely written hub. And the length is pretty good.
Welcome to HP.
You're sure right about the placement of the Amazon capsule - I had to go back after your comment to see if it was there, as I missed it completely. The same goes, I think, to the section of links at the bottom.
I do like the photos, but they placed better.
Great job on your first hub! It reads very well. I would advise that you split the text capsule up into at least two to three capsules to allow more ads to display. And that teeny tiny pic at the top doesn't do much for visual appeal. I think it would be better suited flush right in one of the text capsules.
Amazon carries a bunch of birdhouses. Have you considered adding a few to your hub and taking the pics out altogether?
well, I am in the process of fixing up my first 26 hubs from what I have learned here. Though I did take literature for four years back in 1999 I am rusy with my spelling and grammer. Going back over my hubs I have noticed that and being here is helping me to learn so much. Your first paragraph does have some comma problems - and I didn't go on to read the rest , but I would suggest checking for run on sentences, commas in the wrong place etc.......... I have the same problem so don't worry about it just fix it ....... and yes , I would also agree teh pic is in the wrong place - maybe put it down next to the first paragraph - and remember, as a writer , always stay open to constructive critisim - it helps alot - Over all , nice Hub though - your on the right track!
I also have only read the beginning of the hub, but I am quite impressed. I have to disagree with starme77, though. I saw absolutely no comma problems or run-on sentences in the section that I read. The quality of the writing and grammar conventions in the hub is so strong, that I believe rpuff228 would already know which advice is sound and which is not quite.
I'm with Aficionada, I like the sentence structure. Good writing doesn't always follow strict grammar rules. I'd say rpuff228 knows enough about grammar to know when it's OK to play with it!
rpuff228, I agree - split your text up over several capsules. This Hub explains how to use capsules - which will also help you understand how to use the photo and revenue capsules:
I agree, sign up for Amazon and add some Amazon ads for birdhouses - keep at least one photo, though!
I would get rid of the link on "birds". It's not adding value to your Hub. The link suggestion tool is just to give you ideas - don't add the link unless you think it will be useful to the reader.
Finally, add a link to your own website if you haven't already.
I agree with Marisa that good writing doesn't always follow strict grammatical rules (neither does bad writing unfortunately). In any case, your grammar and sentence structure are spot on rpuff. A well-written hub here. (Yes, that last sentence was a fragment; what the hey?)

I understand you've decided to take a cue from Squidoo and you've chosen to make at least one rule unclear on purpose. It's creating more work for everyone and alienating the people who produce the content you sell ads...

I am just starting out on Hubpages and my first article was unpublished within a day, but looking at it I didn't understand why. I edited it, expanded it, and republished it, and I was wondering (if you have some spare...

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?

I'm bored. Ok correction, I'm procrastinating. I randomly come on and off the forums and on this return visit I've seen SO many people questioning why their hubs aren't making money and/or getting traffic.So for as long...

My Amazon sales are dead in the water. My Amazon Caps are discrete - I have added only when directly related to a product.I am not getting much traffic at the mo, so I guess this is an issue. I posted around 60 Hubs in...
