    It's about my dental problems:

    I think the pictures in your hub are put to half size or quarter size.  You'll want them full size to make them look good.  You've obviously been through a lot with your teeth.  That's quite a horrific story.  I think to get Google traffic, you'll need to be more specific.  What was the name of the chemo drug that hurt your teeth? What is the exact side effect the drug causes when teeth are extracted?  More exact details like that will help with a Google search.  When HubPages asks for indepth, quality articles, they are looking for more details.

    Get more details, fix the pictures, lengthen the hub.  That's a good starting point. smile

      Well, what happened with the pictures, is right after I posted my Hub link here I get this message from Hub editors: "Thank you for being a part of the HubPages community. We are writing to notify you that your Hub contains Watermarked or Pixelated Images or Videos. Your Hub remains published, giving you the chance to address this violation. However, your Hub will be reviewed by moderators again in about a week, and may be unpublished if it has not been corrected."

      Immediately, I shot a message that basically amounted to: "What!? I have no idea what you're talking about!! Blah!"

      lol. I probably should have given it some thought first. That was just my reaction, it kind of stressed me out. I felt picked on. smile I knew they weren't watermarked because I took them myself right before I listed the Hub Page. I thought what are you trying to say here? And then, I started thinking, maybe by "Pixelated Images" they could mean it's not a clear picture? I don't know. They never wrote back. But I made the pictures smaller (quarter size) in case it was a quality issue. I guess it doesn't matter, because then I grabbed my camera and took a few more pictures. I think the pictures I made for the gallery are a better quality. I'm hoping if that's the case, they'll tell me what pictures they don't like?

      I really like your suggestions, and plan to implement them. And hopefully my Hub will still be up in a week! Thanks for taking the time to help me.

    I suggest setting your pictures at the end to "Thumbnails."  It'll look more professional than a page of photos one after another.

    Your first two pictures are a bit blurry.  If possible, choose your very best pictures to go first because those are the ones to catch the reader's eye.

    Finally, use some of agilitymach's suggestions.  It reads rather like a blog post right now, and that'll get you flagged, too.

    I enlarged the pictures, deleted a few of the blurriest, and added more detailed information. Thanks!smile

      So sorry for your problems. yikes(
      Wanted to add that a good idea would be to take the majority of your photos and make them thumbnails. When you add a photo it gives you the option of making them. Also, you might want to add definitions of some of the words you use.  I'd get other photos from morguefiles and wikipedia commons. Maybe find a dental chair or dentist.
      Good luck!
