        The number of hubs doesn't mean too much though - you can still be writing hubs that don't draw traffic at that time. If your still not doing keyword research or your writing + layout skills aren't great your hubs will still suffer.

    Try Extreme Hub Makeover.  They know what they are talking about.

    My immediate negative reaction is Kontera.  I detest that stuff and usually won't read a hub that uses it.

    That has nothing to do with Google directly, of course, but every reader is potentially someone who could give you an organic link and a LOT of people feel as I do, so..

    I think your paragraphs are too long for the web. Web readers are scanners and scanners like short paragraphs - yes, your grade school writing teacher would object, but she isn't a web reader.

    I like to see more headlines for the same reason. They help scanners lock in on the detail they want.

    The subject matter itself leaves me puzzled. I don't know who TCF is or why anyone would care where they locate branches.  I suppose a Midwest reader might have more interest, but if I mentally substitute my local bank, I'm still left feeling very uninterested, which makes me think the target market is small.

    It reads like ad copy or a TCF press release. Well done, but I can't think what person would create an organic link to that or pass it on unless that person was a TCF competitor? Why would Joe Consumer share the link with his friends?

    I could be all wrong about the interest level, of course,  Let's see what other people think because I am an odd duck and don't react as most might.

      I was about to offer the same advice, which coincidentally is advice I also received from Pcunix.

      You want to break up your paragraphs more, create more capsule Headers and make your content more "scannable" for internet readers.

      As far as traffic goes, I'm not exactly an expert, but I here patience is key, so stick with it. That's what I am trying to do.

    Well, "TFC bank locations" gets almost no traffic. And even if it did, it would take an act of God or Buddha or Allah or whoever to get you ranking in the top 5 or 6. The hub is great. But keywords are holding you back.

    The keyword "TCF bank locations" TCF has more than half of the rankings on the first page. I would have just used those, because it had the locations on there and ready. Seems like most people would never have a chance to see your page.

    I assume if I type into "TCF bank locations" I'm looking for one by my house, and that is it.
