When creating List titles, how many is too many?Readers love lists, so when you write an article or blog post that has a list, how do you choose to limit the list in the title? For example, "16 Unique Ways to Cut Your Toe Nails" or "25 Sure Fire Pick Up Lines That Will Get You...

Well here it is.... Get the details on Romney's Tax Plan... http://www.romneytaxplan.com/Come back and post your thoughts
I think that on our own sub domains we authors should be given the option to include the 'Discover More Hubs' box or not or at least have more control over what hubs are added to that section.I tend to write in groups yet on my own content only 2 hubs in my group get additional space and then there...

With all the updates and changes that are being made I think it would be a good addition if HP added a "quick view" option so that we can see if our Hubs need altering after a major change such as this latest change to the Amazon capsules. The "quick view" could be...
How deep will Google be into our lives 10 years from now?After learning that Google is behind the new automated, driver less cars I started to think, what would be the benefit to Google. It was obvious that since they earn the bulk of their revenue from advertising, it only makes sense that...

I thought I would hit the half million mark a lot sooner but my traffic really fell off the last part of the summer. It's back up to between 2300 and 2500 a day. Still not happy with that number but at least the last 2 months have been trending upward.Back in October I had a spike in...

Anyone here think we should have a forum category, or sub-category of the hubber hangout or sandpit, where new members can come introduce themselves?I think it would clear up most of those "I'm new here" threads. I don't mind those threads but It would make this forum a bit cleaner....
As discussed in this thread The Chitika advertising network would be a good alternative to Adsense and Kontera or an additional revenue source. Chitika is easier to affiliate with than either Google Adsense and Kontera and doesn't need as many page views as Kontera to reach payout. ...

I suggest that HP prevent any registered user from posting a new topic to the forums if they have no hubs. They can comment but not start new threads.Most forums that I use have this restriction in place.
I'm suggesting a section on HP where hubbers can make recommendations of interesting hubs and also hubbers. Unlike the section that is on HP's front page where selections are made by hubscore in a certain category, this would be hubs and hubbers selected by other hubbers (who must be signed...
I have won 3 different lotteries today for a total of over 1 million GBP and 427,000 Euros. The cool thing is I didn't even know I was entered into any international lotteries. Don't you have to purchase a ticket in Europe or GB? You do here in the US.This was the latest one:This is to inform...
I recently learned that there is a way to sort of trick searchers to choose your title over titles that may be listed above yours. I say trick but I really mean that there is a way to divert their attention to your title.The use of symbols in the title tag draw the eyes attention and if the...
It would be nice to be able to bulk load tags intead of painstakingly adding them one at a time. If anything, it would save a whole lot of time.

Where would you travel to get the most "bang for your buck?"Only choose places that offer what tourists would consider luxuries.
I was thinking there should be a way for hubbers to implement an "add a page" function to our hubs. Something along the lines of a "page 2" or "next page" button. This way it will be easier to maintain longer series types of hubs without having to go back...

Lowbrow is an art movement that has been in the making since the 1950's. The art incorporates pop culture and tells a story about how the artists see the world. It's not about being vulgar it's about being a smart ass. Think of Mad Magazine. I wrote a hub on it and I'd like...
I tend to read a lot. Fiction, non-fiction, it does not matter. Some books do more for me than others. I enjoy many different genres but if I had to narrow my selection down to just one author I would have to say that Clive Cussler is my very favorite. I love the Dirk Pitt...
It seems like it is very hard to get traffic for fiction and poetry hubs outside of the hubpages community. I'd just like to mention a site that might get you some more targeted traffic.DeviantArt.com is a social network of artists frome every genre, including the written word. As a...
I just learned the usefulness of Google Base as a marketing tool. I found out I can advertise my article sort of like a press release and add a link to my article and a referral link to join HubPages.Here is an example of what it looks like:http://base.google.com/base/a/6545871/D …...
I think HP should put some sore of restriction on posting to the forums to keep people from joining just to post their spam.New hubbers should have to at least publish One hub of original content before having access to the forums. I'm sure this will not eliminate all the spammers but it may...

At first, I thought I might eliminate the word "NO" or the phrase "I can't." But after reflecting a moment, sometimes we need to say those words and mean it. I would have to eliminate the concept of entitlement. I know it goes against basic Christian ideals of...
My electric bill was under $350 for the first time in over six months. Staying on top to the kids to keep things off or unplugged when not in use has been a help I think. But summer is coming quick and the A/C and swimming pool are almost a necessitiy. I'm investigating solar and...
