    No sorry, it didn't seem to be doing well so I deleted it. I then went through my posts and added some stuff and took stuff out that seem irrelevant.

    Hi Matt, I just read your hub on how to actually make money. It was fine, good reading and I liked the way you entered into the subject with your first paragraph.

    The only feed back I can give you on what seemed to be an excellent hub is in your text capsules.

    A lot of people write their last word then full stop in a capsule and hit enter causing another paragraph break to start. If there is no writing there, then it leaves a gap of white space between the capsules when published.

    Your hub has some white space that might look tidier and flowing if you edit each capsule and press the delete button after the last full stop, hence removing the next paragraph break and eliminating the white space.

    How was that, is that what your looking for.

    I think I understand, I will take a look and see if I can take care of that. Thank you.

    Title of your first hub you mentioned about do not match the content at all. The title is "How to Actually Make Money", this gives us an impression that the hub will have something on the ways to earn money by some alternate ways like through Internet but never does it gives an impression that you will talk about the tricks about getting a job. At least this is what I thought.

    In fact if you give a title that do not match your content then you maybe violating one of Hubpages policy that says "You are not allowed to write hubs that Contains misleading tags and/or titles the don't match the the Hubs content, including irrelevant/excessive tagging."

    Give title such that it is related to the content of your hub because you never know someone may get irritated and flag it..... But so far the content is concerned, it is great smile

    I liked your other hubs particularly "How to Tip in a Restaurant! Appreciate your Server or Pizza Delivery Driver!". Great tips. Thanks. But in the hub "Texas Hold 'Em: Position, Betting, and Flop Texture for Beginners"I find that you have used a link as it it. Try to give title to a link, it makes easy for the readers.

    There is one thing that I must tell you about the way you give tags. Most of the tags that you have given are good but sometimes they are one word. Avoid them. Also try to give sufficient number of tags but don't overuse, it is very few in your Hub "Texas Hold 'Em: Position, Betting, and Flop Texture for Beginners"

    I would suggest you to go through my following comment and

    Here I have given some general tips about the ways to improve.

    ""How to Actually Make Money", this gives us an impression that the hub will have something on the ways to earn money by some alternate ways like through Internet but never does it gives an impression that you will talk about the tricks about getting a job."

    Matt, i think your fine on the the reviewer mentioned, he/she somehow got the impression of alternate  methods and internet techniques. This is clearly nor stated in your title...I see it as  subtle humorous critique on the abundance of making money on the internet hubs that exist..since your hub was on people ACTUALLY make money ..which for the most part is by having a job.

    Its kind of funny that I point this out because I actually do earn my total income from the internet.

    I truly enjoyed the server hub and came back a few times to comment and follow the posts.

    If I had to say anything, it wouldnt be a negative about the writing...but you dont seem to use many of the monetize tools (capsules)..also hubscores really seem to mean very little as far as quality goes...if you write an amazing hub on ringtailed wombats thats meticulously researched, humorous and filled to the brim with every capsule will prob rank high at first if it has a decent amount of text and utilizes all the capsules...but since you would have a very small niche of readers, the traffic would dwindle as would the hubs score

    I try to follow the rules for a flagship hub when I create a hub and am hoping for a high hub score, doing such always gives me a very high opening score even though 3 months later most have dwindled since they only get 10 or so hits a day
