    I published a new hub, http://silverstararrow.hubpages.com/hub … -Solutions

    I waited around a while (a day) to get some response. Yet, there has been minimal taffic and no comments. Is this topic taboo, or is something wrong with my hub? sad

      Your hub is great, and I hope that it becomes part of a groundswell of support in India to get rid of the patriarchal society that belongs to several centuries ago.
      You have managed to put forward perfectly reasonable arguments about why women feel the need to abort their unborn girls, and the changes needed to revert this way of thinking.
      Unfortunately, it would not be allowed ads because of the nature of the topic, but hey, your voice will still be heard, hopefully.
      Your title is perfect for a scholarly piece, but perhaps not so good for the web, where titles that include the words people might type into search engines get priority in search.
      You are an excellent writer.
      Welcome to Hubpages smile

      You need to be patient. It takes a while to get traffic, because google has to see that it's a legitimate trusted site. Once that happens people will be visiting.

      One suggestion I would make is not to have the top photo be so cheery. That's the one that shows up with the title, and they don't seem to mix, therefore, people from hubpages are less likely to click. Plus you want your photos to be a good match, and I don't think that one is. The rest are really good choices though.

      Also, you have a lot of great searchable subtitles, but your title, though it would be a great title in a magazine, on the web, not so much. You want a title that is searchable. One easy way to find one is go to keyword tool in google. (Google keyword tool and you'll find it) Then you will get a lot of ideas. You want one that has at least 400 searches, but not too many, because then there is a lot of competition You want one that's popular, but not overly popular. Does that make sense?

      Anyway, great article... maybe great is not the right word.

        Thank you so much, angela_michelle for your suggestions. I'm setting out to do the necessary corrections; the title does not really appear search friendly now that I think about it. tongue

        Also, I should have realized that the first photo was too cheery to be part of this hub that discusses a serious topic. Thank you for the feedback. smile
