I have noticed that some of the HOD -Hub of the day have one thing in common. They have a main picture with a Title of their hub just over the picture. Does it really gives a plus point?
I can read the title and then the main pic has a text of the hub's title too.In my opinion, it's a little bit redundant.
Well, Marica it is not entirely true, the most important thing is that your hub is beautifully written and well organised, Content is the king here and so is quality. However, if you have authentic pics in your hubs, then they do create a positive impression.
High-quality, properly attributed photos are what HOD Hubs need in order to be considered. Hubs are automatically disqualified if they don't have either original or legally used and attributed photos. Of course, image placement is important, but this can vary depending on the content. For example, recipe Hubs usually start with an image that is the finished product. Hope that helps!
I think maybe what Maricamjolo is referring to is what Wrylilt has deemed "Made for Pinterest" images, or MFP images, where you place the title of the article directly onto the photo.
Maricamjolo, here is a link to Wrylilt's article, which explains the benefits of MFP images:

You can place text on images a number of ways. I do it very simply by using Microsoft Paint, but I'm sure I am not doing it the best way. Maybe someone will chime in on the best/easiest way to place text on a photo -- that is, if that is what Maricamjolo is referring to in her OP and if she needs help with that.

It would be cool if we could choose which picture is the "main" picture of hubs instead of it being the first picture of the hub.

When our hubs were once chosen, we had a way to see what was supposed to be fixed before it appeared on a niche site. Now I don't see anything like that. It could be me, but there was a way to see what they wanted added or deleted.It's very frustrating. Yesterday I was told my hub on Zeus, the...

Which do you think is more important in deciding to read a hub or a blog?-do you value author's name,hub title, hub score, hubber's score or attractive photographs?

SEO experts....How important is it that URL matches title keywords?I titled a hub, partially typed and saved it. Then I decided a different title would be more appropriate and changed it. I just realized the URL (in the address bar in the search engine) keeps the original title. So my URL does not...
