Hi fellow hubbers, this is my first product review here on Hub Pages and I need both constructive and destructive critics to let me know how it is
Looking forward to your views. In case the link is blocked the review is Zenni optical review can be found on my profile.

Thanks in advance
Will be back in the morning tomorrow its 00:04am at present
It's not really a review when you don't own it and express your own experiences with the product.
It's more like a "Hear is what other people say about this".
There was nothing compelling in the article that made me want to own the product.
Anyone can list features, it's BENEFITS and EXPERIENCE that sell.
For example. I have a hub I wrote about KRK Rokit Speakers and using them for a computer. It was easy to write because I own them. I have had a lot of comments about the article because people want to know how to connect them and what will or will not work.
I'm not saying you have to own or buy everything you review, but if you have no real world experience with a product then people are not going to believe what you say about it.
If I were writing about Glasses... I'd write about Sunglasses because I own so many. I could tell you why I like or dislike a particular lens or shade or frame... and if you were interested in sunglasses you would want to read more.
A Feature is this: Spring Frame
A Benefit is this: Because of the spring frame less pressure is put on the area above my ears, however the glasses still fit snugly and do not fall off. This is the thing I like the Best about this pair of sunglasses.
In my opinion you overuse the keyword. I would even say it is keyword stuffed.
True, but that stuffing did get a large AdSense Zenni ad displayed with the text, although below the fold.
In terms of layout, move that sunglasses photo further down in your text so that the huge Zenni ad pops up where your text begins. It would be a good idea to credit that sunglasses photo, too.
The Amazon ads have nothing to do with Zenni, far as I can tell. So not only are they a distraction, they are also screaming that you wrote this article only to sell something eye-related through Amazon.
From my perspective as a reader who will be wearing prescription eyeglasses very soon, I want to know about ordering glasses online (pros and cons) and why Zenni is a good choice. If you tell me that, I guarantee I'm going to click on that Zenni AdSense ad.
You gave a lot of good information, but you didn't address a reader's motivation.
Ok thanks for the feedback. Will improvise on it now.
Hi Sally, I got this pic from morguefile. There's no need of attribution.
I get lots of pics from there... It's not required to attribute but I usually do. Often the photographers like to get emails telling them where you use the photos. I drop them an email sometimes just for politeness or if I like the pictures a lot. I've gotten a couple of backlinks from their personal blogs that way (which I wasn't expecting) and a couple of facebook reposts... Plus they seem genuinely pleased to be credited. They are just like us, trying to carve out a living (or at least a paying hobby)
Oh Good point. I'll attribute all my hub pics later today then
