I am new to Hubpages and am only starting to get the jist of things. however I feel like i need to do something to attract more of an audience as my numbers are still quite small.
I am wondering if it is something wrong with my hubs?
Please check out my hubs and leave feedback, just to help a new hubber
I took a quick peek at one of your hubs and it seems to be fine. Perhaps you should have a photo at the top to get a visitors attention right at the start. This used to be taboo for Adsense but now they say not. Who knows for sure?
But the main thing you should know is it takes time and you've only been here a short while. Everyone starts off slow getting traffic. Patience is a virtue, especially on this site.
Welcome to HubPages!
Hi and welcome to HP Rachel!
On the revamping scale... your "What to Write on a Blog" is going to need some revision as it's completely personal. Also HP is not a blogging platform... each hub should be written as a stand alone more in the vein of a magazine article than a blog.
Your "Top 5 Tips for Travelling in Northern Ireland" seems incomplete as there is a final subheading with no info after it.
Your "Review on Hubpages" is gonna likely get flagged for unrelated links. It is absolutely ok to link to your own hubs but they need to be related other than just "other hubs by me" kinda thing.
The Titanic Belfast hub is going to get flagged for unrelated links for the amazon link that is unrelated to the hub.
As this isn't a blogging site you also might want to stay a little further away from the first person point of view. I can't say too terribly much about it though because I tend towards it myself. It does raise the risk of getting a hub flagged for purely personal though.
Your layout is also a bit hard to look at but that might be my personal preference. I like the pictures spread out between sub-headings rather than all grouped at the end of the article... there is less white space with no words on the left side.
Otherwise your grammar is strong and your writing is concise.
BTW... don't worry too terribly much about getting a following here... of all my views only about 2400 of them came from HP members... that's only about 3-4 percent of my total views. The rest of the views come from outside of the community.
Welcome to HP!
You are off to a good start with seven hubs in only 7 days.
My suggestion to you is to take your time to read - the learning center hubs, and the hubs posted by other hubs as well as articles in general. You can analyze what formats you like, length of paragraphs, hub layouts, images, etc. and apply that to your own hubs. There are many hubs that provide advice for new Hubbers that will let you get through the learning curve faster.
A bonus about reading other hubs and commenting on them is the possibility (not a guarantee) that more people will be aware that you exist and the hubbers may return the favor and read some of your hubs.
Thank You Millionaire Tips, that is sound advice and I will be sure to follow it
I left a comment on one of you hubs I'm not sure if this is a general opinion but I prefer hubs that have large attention grabbing images. For example in the 5 tips for travelling in Northern Ireland Maybe make those pictures larger so we can properly see the beauty that NIR has to offer. picture placement is important too in my opinion maybe have a very picturesque image of NIR that really makes the reader think 'WOW!' and curious to read on.

This forum is a place for you to post hubs that you think are clearly of low quality and need flagging. Committed hubbers should follow this forum and check these hubs posted for quality when they have the time. If a...

In a thread a few days ago, a discussion began about accounts which have been here quite some time and have a lot of published hubs that are noticeably breaking Hubpages ToS. Despite the accounts being flagged...

Ok I am at my end! I seem to be having an issue with HP. Everytime I flag something I end up getting flagged. Yesterday I published my 2nd part in a 3 part series on Jeffrey Dahmer. Ads were taken and I was fine with...

HubPages has this wonderful feature called Hub Hopping or Hub Hop to flag low-quality/copied/spam content. I know some hubbers do use this and help HP staff weed out the substandard content. Here's one more reason why...

I occasionally hub-hop, but most of the time I come away from it feeling like I haven't really accomplished much as far as "improving HubPages" goes.So tonight, just for laughs, I decided to type...

Rather distressing to find a Hub being flagged back at me as 'substandard'. especially as some readers have given it very positive feedback - worse, the list of possible reasons for it being a 'violation' (very strong...
