    Hey SexySnow,

    Just to let you know, the Extreme Hub Makeover forum thread you can post a couple of links to get critiquing for.

    But, to ask people to search through your 13 hubs? Is a bit much and unfair. If you like post a couple of links you would like checked out and the community will more than likely be willing to help out.

    Good luck going forward. smile

        I guess I should have said something sooner, but neglected to say something about it, only because it hasn't happened in a long time.

        It's bad forum decorum to post links with trackers in them. Not to mention, it throws off your statistics. However, I'll check out your links.

    Both hubs look pretty good. I'm not sure if one of them will get flagged for over promotional or not.

    One of your hubs has 3 links leading to blogspot.com domain and that's against HP rules. It could be unpublished.

    You can only have 2 links to one domain and that includes RSS feeds and links for photos.

    You could use more keywords/tags on both hubs. Other than that, they look fine. I'm sure other people will come along with other advice.

    One thing that hurts is the pen name. "sexysnow" will cause readers to misinterpret your intentions here.

    I agree with Xenonlit:  If you want credibility, a profile name with the word “sexy” is probably not the best way to go.  And if you want to be a “better hubber”, which implies being a respected member of this community, then I’d suggest you publish additional hubs that have nothing to do with driving traffic to your personal sites/business interests.  Publish more recipes, maybe some tips for parents, homeowners, or whatever your other interests, without links to sites for which you have a commercial interest. 

    If however you really meant ‘how can I be more successful at driving traffic to my hubs, and therefore my other sites’, then there are plenty of hubbers who could advise you on that.  Seems to me like it would be hard to rank for cellulite and online earning. 

    In my limited experience and understanding, it seems that every one of your hubs except your cookie recipe are at risk for being flagged as overly promotional.  There is more to this issue than just the math of how many links to the same site.  You can read more here:
