Thanks for another great hub! Just one tip - I saw that you've barely got to 2000 hits on the forums, so maybe check the word count (under hub metrics) and make sure you're hubs are at least 500-700 words+ - this way you'll get more hits from google where the money is. Only textboxes and photo boxes count so all the links wouldn't be included. Good luck! =)
