I joined HubPages in November, due to the holidays and then foot surgery in February, I'm just now getting back to publishing Hubpages again.
I welcome critiques, ideas and suggestion to what I can do to make my Hubs better and receive more traffic. Below are a couple of my Hubpages. Thanks. :-)

They are well written. I would post some backlinks in the hub. But that's it.
The writing and layout is great maybe look up other sites to chick their keywords and include them in yours great job!
Both pages are rather short. That alone is an issue. These are also subjects that have been flogged to death so don't expect too many views.
Having said that, your writing is clear and to the point- which is one the most important things.
You need to dig deeper into subjects and also find subjects that have not been covered so much.
Thanks to all that have replied and given their critique.
I've yet to find the information on Hubpages on how long a Hub should be. What the minimum and maximum length of a Hub is recommended. So my articles have run from 150 to 300 or so words. If anyone knows this info, please let me know.
My Hub is geared toward female 40 years of age and older, especially older. And yes, there are numerous articles in magazines, on tv and on the internet about beauty. But within that information is sometimes new tips and findings.
I would guess most everything has been written about numerous times especially with the advent of the internet, so having a different slant is always welcomed.
The minimum number with any chance of success is around 500. Long, information rich articles with between 1000 and 1500 words, pictures and vids often do very well.
I would check out the learning center- reading every article there is a labor but probably worth it.
While I agree articles too short might not do very well, but too long articles, depending on the subject matter are not good either.
I write for another publication on a different subject matter and they suggest articles minimum 150 up to 500 words per article. For them my articles are usually around 300-350 or so.
In today's society a lot of people don't want or like to take the time to read long articles, they lose interest quickly. In our instant gratification society now days, it is unfortunate that people prefer sound bites of information.
My goal is to write about 300 to 600 word hubs, depending on the topic. Some topics lend themselves to longer articles than other topics.

this is just my personal opinion on what everyone should do for each of their hubs directly after writing them or at any point in time. Submit them to 3-4 of your favorite social bookmarking websites (takes 2-5 minutes)...

So last week I received an e-mail from a college student asking if I would be interested in showcasing a paper that he wrote. In responses to him I advised him I would use his article but include my own...

First, apologies to Tori since it will SEEM like I'm picking on her HotD - I'm not. These featured hubs need to be touched by an editor if Hubpages is ever going to be taken seriously as a 'real' writing site.1. The...
