Help Me Improve My Hub

    I had thought that I had learn something about keyword and SEO. But probably I was wrong as I am getting little or no traffic to my hubs. With over 300 hubs I am struggling to get to 150 page views daily. Here are few of my hubs. Please provide feedback for them to improve them and get better traffic.

      More pictures can never hurt.

    I looked at the first hub that linked to. Here are a few suggestions -

    1) Too many "keywords" --

    Way TOO many keywords - in fact there are two or more keywords in every sentence. Keyword stuffing = spammy look/feel = unfavorable Google = less visitors. Even those visitors that happen to read will hit the back button - your hub does not make for good reading - even if the info you give is actually useful.

    The challenge is to use "related keywords" in a natural manner.

    2) Your main title is actually two questions in one -

    ==Choosing Gas or Electric Portable Pressure Washers
    ==How To Buy The Best Portable Pressure Washer

    3) Too much focus on your other writing - you have included -

    -- My Best Hubs
    -- My Latest Hubs
    -- My Hot Hubs

    Unless you are writing a series of hubs on related topics - not really useful to do this.

    4) If you want to link to other hubs by other hubbers, you may like to put your tracker.

    5) Slightly unrelated - try getting a bit, umm, "neutral" picture for your avatar

    Hi Sidd,
    Thanks for your detailed feedback. Can you let me know how to put my url tracker while linking to hubs by other hubbers.

      While logged in, scroll to the very bottom of the hub that you want to link to - there you will find a small menu. Click on the item "link to this page".

    Do I need to paste the HTML code somewhere. If yes where do I need to put it.

      Just copy the URL with tracker - the HTML stuff is not used on hubs.

      For example, this is the link to your hub with my tracker -

    Most people do not use trackers when linking to other's hubs within Hubpages.

      True. I have seen too few people actually putting tracker in links. Well, one of them is me, B-). I recently learned it from Wilderness and I can't thank him enough. He is ever so helpful.

    I would say you are focusing way too much on ads. Although your content might have been good, I did not read your article because all those Amazon capsules lying around gave me the impression the whole article is an ad. And we instinctively avoid ads.

    Although I am not really in a position to provide tips (I am not successful myself) I would suggest a few things to you.

    1) People want to buy only when you are not trying to sell. Make the person feel he/she chose the product himself/herself. Don't force them to look at your ads. I prefer product ads at the very end of my article. And throughout the article I try to provide them with useful information.
    You do just that and people will trust you. They will eventually check out the products themselves.

    2) You might consider adding a personal description to each product yourself - how you yourself found it useful etc. Do not and I mean DO NOT feature useless products. Only display products that you might consider buying yourself. It is always better to add specific products than using the keyword feature to display random products.

    Please take the time to read my Hubs not because I am a great author but because by doing that you will be helping me ease my struggle as a newcomer somewhat, smile. And of course you can drop by my Hub on Adsense -
