Hi everybody. I just started hubbing a few weeks and have already fallen in love with HubPages. It's a great outlet to write about whatever I want and maybe even have a few people read it!
I've written 9 hubs so far, so I'll put the link to a few of them below and hopefully some of the more experience hubbers can give me some feedback.
Appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks!
Picked the middle one. Here's a few thoughts
1) Where did you pick up those pictures? When I see pictures with NO attributions, I worry for the hubwriter. I know I did it before myself, but nowadays with ONE click people can find where you got the pix from.
2) Needs a bit of conclusion. You shouldn't just end on the last tip. Do a recap of the tips and how it helped you or something.
3) The intro can be a little shorter. You don't need to give a life story before you get to the point.
Thanks for the tips. I'll definitely work on shortening up the intro and adding a conlusion. As for the pics, they came from a free stock photo site. Thanks again!
If they came from stock photo site, it's still better to put in an attribution, like "source: _______", just to make sure they don't think it's yours.
Still, did the stock photo site says it's OKAY to use their pictures? Doubt you'll get caught or anything, but still... Better to have a good habit now.
I read one and it seemed pretty good to me.
Maybe others can be more constructive.
Your losing weight hub:
You have several links at the beginning of the hub. Why are you sending readers away before they even look at what you've written? Suggest that if you want links, place them further down so that readers have a better chance to look around.
Move the top picture. It is taking the most valuable ad space. You might break the first capsule into two capsules, putting the pic in the second one. That will move the big ad up into that valuable space right at the top.
Looks good to me otherwise. Your pics are nice, and break up the text very well. Well done!
Thanks for taking the time to critique it. I put those links in as a result of the "suggest links" tool, but you have a great point that I could be sending readers away right off the bat.
I was just reading about that top space being the best ad space. I'm gonna have to move my big ol' cheeseburger :-)

Who thinks we should ask to reinstate a page dedicated to locating hubbers by hubber score. Beginning with 100-0.We once had such a page here that made the hubber score much more relevant, and we could at least get a...

I recieved an email from a hubber who said she was 13 years old. It wasn't asking for help or anything...it was trying to make friends. I forwarded it to the Hub Team because I don't think 13-year-old girls should be...

I am really annoyed. I really dont understand whats the point in those hubs. Or are they really allowed in here? The pics are posted mostly by someone from India and I dont know what sort of value is added on hubpages...
