Ummm, can you give us one example and we can give you some thoughts on ways to 'make it over' a bit?
Don't worry, I won't hurt your feelings....well, at least not on purpose.
Honestly, we want to use this forum to help you all create the best Hubs possible based upon our experience with what has worked and what doesn't. We're not perfect by any means, but we can definitely help you guys out.
Think of us as this guy, but for your Hubs....only a little less annoying and a lot less crying.
The point is to showcase google's country-level domains and the lack of other country-level domains.
I realize there is mostly information and not much to "read," but as a reference, it could come in handy.
The list that is "far more comprehensive" doesn't contain most of the country-level domains that I have in my hub and is just a list. They attempt to list ALL (which isn't even close to all) of google's domain names, while I have provided links to ALL of Google's country-level domains that are currently available. I've also put specific countries for which each link is intended. So how is the list more comprehensive? Just asking.
Of course your response helps. Thanks for responding Mark.
1. The title definitely needs some work, meaning that it's not very search-friendly and most likely wouldn't be part of a phrase that someone would actually be searching for. I would have tried something like 'A list of Google's many domains' or 'Worldwide listing of Google search domains'.
2. There isn't much actual interesting content in this Hub. It is made up completely of a few images and just long, long lists of linked Google domains. Also, the topic really isn't something that I would guess that people are searching for on a regular basis.
My suggestion, if you are interested in this subject, would possibly to do a more in-depth look at the many domains of Google and how much traffic each one receives in comparison to one another. You could also look at growth trends within the domains and other potential things that would be a little more interesting to read about.
A potential topic could be something like: 'The 20 highest trafficked Google domains from around the world'
Yeah, what Ryan said. I know your point was to show that Google is everywhere, but I'd like to know why they even have all these domain names, like what is the purpose behind them? For instance, I know that search results are locally focused, but is that countrywide or statewide or what? Search engines aren't going to find you unless you put something in there besides a list.
JMHO, though. Thanks for being the first piece of steak on the skewer!
Possibly I need to do some research now... I agree that the title isn't very searchable... When I first published it, I actually wasn't sure what the potential benefits could be, though I had a few things in mind... and even more now!
Your points are taken and I will begin research and my "Extreme Hub Makeover" shortly.
Thanks Ryan (and everyone else.) I appreciate all of your help!
My reaction too. I know there are a few videos in there, but if I hadn't been asked to critique it, I would never have read that far down the Hub - I would just put it straight in the "useless information" basket!
So I would agree an opening paragraph or two would be helpful, and perhaps bounce one of the videos up there, too.
I don't agree with Ryan about having all your content above the comments capsule. I often add the News capsule or an RSS feed below the comments capsule - because the only reason I'm adding them is to take advantage of the "freshness factor". Because my Hubs aren't topical, the News capsule rarely adds real value to my content, so I'm quite happy if people don't get that far!
Heads up to those applying for an AdSense account! After publishing about 10 hubs I applied for an AdSense Account and was declined due to the standard lack of content. After publishing 16 hubs, I reapplied...
Hi, I have been posting a series of hubs on Dog Care and Adoption topics. All my hubs are original and I type each character in it. I also got a decent number of Hubs(21) to begin with all with good content. But google...

We all know that there's so much competition to rank in search engines, and we've all heard that 'content is king', but what does that *really* mean?What it means is that Google is now placing much more importance on...
