Look to the right of the screen to locate the capsules area
Use of image capsules help bring out visual affect to the page
Utilize all capsules that are relevant
Capsules are something you need to get familiar with as a hubber, and they are located on the hub editor towards the far right of the editing screen, and as soon as you decide to create a hub.
The basic requirement is to fill out the text capsule initially, and if you have any images to provide beginning with a single image that will become your hubs screen pic in search engines, on the hubpages feed, and on your hubpages profile as well. When you decide to network your hubs using any hubpages RSS feeds, or if others choose to do so for you by sharing it all, it will also show up elsewhere on the web using this image you placed onto your hub (Make sure it's a high quality image), as well as in posts on per say Facebook.
Hub summaries also will be the info provided to explain what your hub is about, and can be located on your hubpages editor capsule area, just look for the link option there to click to fill out that summary section. If you decide not to create a hub summary, it may do harm to your hubs SEO standings on Google, and other search engines, so be wise to satisfy this condition. A letter 'A' indication will appear on your my account section next to your newly made hub, if you also chose not to create a hub summary, or simply haven't located it on the capsule area.
Positioning capsules counts more than you think-
Using multiple capsules all throughout your hub need to be sensible, and formatted in such a way to appeal to your readers, white space is the most important thing about positioning capsules so that ad's, maps, text, images, and video etc..... do not confuse the reader.
Plus each hub you release to the online world by hitting the publish button is getting judged quite thoroughly by many individuals, search engines, and hubpages bots for purposes of filtering out the low quality articles, and allowing for the more higher quality ones to take precedence and leap forward in terms of web stats, and web page ranking overall.
Create white space- this is done by clicking enter towards the end of your text you've chosen to type or paste into the text capsule, and it highly important when it comes to your hubpage being visually appealing to the reader and easy to navigate through.
Learn to use the sharing features and creating links
Linking hubs to other hubs is actually part of the sharing factors on hubpages, and as long as you create relevant links to other peoples hubs, as well as your own your doing a wonderful job at helping efforts.
Your hub will become a resourceful hub to navigate to and from other hubs using relevant links, they should be able to provide your users with much more insight for the viewing and informational purposes, giving readers who may be looking to get around on hubpages by using your articles information as a sort of web utility.
Now if you use the link capsule it makes this job of creating resourceful hubpages links work even better, and its easier for you to accomplish such a task, due to the fact of hubpages providing automated tracking tools, and suggestive links to help locate relevant links already built into the hubpages system.
