    Hello, I'm new to Hubpages and posted my first hub today: Marklin Trains

    Would appreciate any feedback, thanks!

    Thanks Guidebaba!  I've got a little internet experience, but this is my first hub.  Always interested in feedback to improve!

      You are already doing great. I was very poor initially.

      Here are some tips:

      1. Write at least 1000 - 1500 genuine words.
      2. Use 5-10 relevant pictures with CAPTION. Pictures are USELESS without any caption.
      3. Use 3-5 relevant videos with title.
      4. Use SUPER-RELEVANT ebay and amazon capsules.
      5. Wisely and cleverly use Yahoo News and RSS Capsules
      6. Put 1 amazon capsule at the top and 1 at the bottom
      7. Provide some links to some relevant and GOOD and USEFUL sites. Linking words in the content itself works much better.


      CHEERS !!!

          They are nice tips but remember, thats just his general form! Everyone can have there own formation and there own amounts of capsules that they think will preform better! But I will admit, his are top notch!

    I've been revising my first hub and think I'm getting closer!

    Quite good for your first hub!

    Thumbs up!

    That's a good first hub. You really must have taken time to prepare.

    Thanks ngureco and profiler for the nice feedback.

    I've now added more text and reached the 1,000 word mark -- a bit hard for me, as I tend to be brief.

    Its now even better. But I may whisper to you: when guys and gals make comments on your hub, they expect your response, if you will. That way the hub score will go up and more people will come to read your hub.

    Thanks Ryan and ngureco!

    Ngureco: thanks for the tip on comments, I did not realize that!

    I am also trying to incorporate these helpful comments into my 2nd Hub:  Trix Trains

    I will be adding some more text as time allows.

    I am finding the Amazon and Ebay listings both fairly light for Trix trains, so that's why I haven't used more modules.

    Now applying what I've learned to my 3rd hub:  Bachmann Trains

    As always, constructive comments are appreciated!

    Use tag suggestions and follow previous advice. You can add poll too.

    you first HUB is excellent.  Mine was not as good.  I am still experimenting in different layouts and keywords, though I have completed already 60+ hubs.
