      I'm not qualified to crit yet because I'm still learning but as I have a degree in Interior Design, I'm quite critical about articles that present decorating. I love yours! wink

        Thanks Sophia - that means a lot to me as I'm right in the middle of getting a degree in interior design.

    Really, really great article!  The capsules are laid out beautifully, the content is relevant, and your research is impeccable.  Overall, it's a great piece of Hubwork. big_smile

    I do have two suggestions, although minor ones at that.

    First, and I always recommend this, change your summary text to something that isn't recommended by HubPages.  When I finally started doing that, I noticed a huge jump in page views.  Remember to incorporate your keyphrases in the summary.

    Second, keep learning all you can about SEO and long tail keywords.  The biggest issue is getting people to the page.  The better the keyphrases, the more visitors you'll have.

    Really though, you impressed the hell out of me.  Great job!

      What do you mean to write something that isn't recommended by HubPages?

        The summary is taken automatically from the first words of your hub.  You can uncheck "Calculare summary automatically" and provide other text.

        That text will then be used in search engine results, which can help people decide to visit your page.

        So, if you feel that the automatic summary is not compelling, uncheck that box and put in better words.

        Here's a picture:

        The upper arrow points to where you click to show the summary; the lower is pointing at the summary.

    Thanks everyone for taking the time to review my new hub.  Pcunix - the "write your own summaries" tip is a great one.

      Yeah, if I could only remember to do that myself.
