    Hi, I have been on here for a couple of years.  But, I have just started using HubPages again after a long absence.  I was hoping that I could get feedback on my Hub to see if I can make any improvements.

    Thanks,

      Just took a look too and I would say that for the most part it is fine.  I would add a Poll capsule next to the 'Signs and Symptoms' text capsule... this might fill that white space and also add a bit of engagement to the hub.  Also, I would remove the extra descriptions in the Amazon Modules... if people want those books let them click through and have the reviews there convince them to buy.  One more thing, add the Rating's capsule just above the comments capsule.  This is fairly new for us here at HP but it's a rich snippet and something that Google loves.  Hope this helps.

        Thanks for taking a look!  I changed the Amazon capsule, added another picture, added a video, a poll, and the rating capsule.  But, I am not sure I put the right thing in the rating capsule.

      IMHO, you need a "conclusion" instead of just end on the list of tips. Other than that, I don't see any obvious needs for improvements, except maybe expand a bit upon the tips, like offering more specific advice regarding each tip.

    I just started hub a few months ago and was all into it for the first week than gave up. Today I finally desided to check it back out... I have been wondering the same for my huds (only 3, but will be writing again soon in free time). i just read a few of your hubs and think you are a very good writer and your topics are very catching. keep up the good work!!

    Hi Wilderness smile welcome back to HP. I read your article and it's well done. I would suggest adding a video, something fun or helpful (yoga for baby and new moms?) maybe a poll, but - your amazon capsules don't need the whole 'back cover' information. Maybe break it into key points and then write a summary for those will be better. Over all, a great start! smile

      Great! Thank you for your suggestions! I will definitely work on adding those and fixing the amazon capsule

      Kindly take a look on my hub and give me some suggestions. I joined about a week on hubpages.

        1) Create your own forum topic, rather than use someone else's for your own feeback
        2) Not quite enough focus. What are you trying to tell us? There's no one single coherent message in the hub, other than a vague "maybe you should try reading newspapers online".
        3) Be more assertive, like "Why you should read newspapers online" or "How to read newspapers online"
        4) More "bullet points", i.e. so people can get the points you're getting across by skimming, and read in more detail if they wish to.

    I think I would make the title a little longer. You should catch more search engine traffic. Not everyone has heard of the term 'postpartum' (I hadn't before I saw your hub to be honest) so it's quite a specific search to find your hub. If you changed it to 'How To Beat Postpartum Depression After Giving Birth' or 'How To Beat Postpartum Depression After Having A Baby'
    for example, then it would catch the people searching for postpartum depression and also the people searching for 'beat depression after having a baby' or 'how to beat depression after giving birth'.
    You are more likely to get more traffic to it in the end if you do this IMO.
