New to Hubs!! Are my Hubs to Personal? Any Ideas?

    I'm completely new to this and just looking and asking around for advice. I honestly just picked a couple subjects I could write quite a bit about and put my heart into them. I didn't go way into detail but kept it short and sweet. Hopefully I can get some input on whether or not my Hubs are even attractive? Do they keep you interested?

      I read about hot dogs. 

      The first couple of paragraphs are very personal and could be re-written.  I would be concerned about a ding from HP just because of them.

      The rest of the hub is very informative and interesting, and it might add even more if you could re-do those first couple of paragraphs into little more than a sentence or two that you have a hot dog.  Then mix the rest of those paragraphs into the information you give later as personal experience with particular aspects of the breed. 


      By doing this you not only give the information (as you already do) but have at least some authority to go with it from your own experience.

      You might break the hub into a couple more text capsules as well - it will probably read better and you can spread the photos out a little more.  Does Amazon have products aimed at weiner dogs?  You might discuss something special they need and throw in an amazon product or two (if you have an account, anyway)

      You might study up on the subject of keywords as well, and how to use them.  I doubt you will get much traffic with the title you have chosen.

      I read the dog one.

      The intro doesn't quite do it for me. It's too wordy. IMHO. You should just go straight into "I have this breed as pet and why you should too"  and later, explain why this may not be quite right for some people.

      Pictures look a little fuzzy, but adequate. However, you put ads ... (EDIT: PICTURES!)  into the "golden spot", to the right of the first paragraph. That's generally a BAD IDEA.

      Sounds like you used a SINGLE text capsule. Try use a bit more.

        You mean photos into the "golden spot", and you're right.  That area needs reserved for google ads.

        Judicious splitting of the hub into multiple text capsules can leave this area free for ads; preview it to make sure the ads will fit.

    What, Hubs can't be "personal"? What does that mean? Some of mine are very personal, does that mean they could get deleted? What's a ding?

      I have seen hubs that are no more than a daily diary.  "I got up at 7AM and had corn flakes for breakfast, then got dressed.  I put on my shoes and walked to the bus stop but it was late so I took the train".  On and on for hundreds of words.

      That is too personal.

      HP has a definition to the effect that if no one but your friends and family are interested it is too personal.

      If it is too personal HP will unpublish it.
