I have been losing traffic despite being on the first page of google for my keywords and think it is time to edit and add more to this hub to improve it. The hubs address is http://pattyjane.hubpages.com/hub/Can-c … ve-tattoos. I would appreciate all constructive comments and advice on what you think would make this hub/article more appealing and informational, thanks!
Just a couple of suggestions.
None of your photos have proper attribution; there is no indication of where you got them or if they are legal to use. This needs to be added - the learning center has a section on proper use of photos.
If it is legal to do so according to the license of the first photo, it would be nice to make it into a MFP (Made For Pinterest - see WryLilts hub) and pin it in Pinterest.
Your hub isn't about selling books, and sticking in a few amazon ads isn't very likely to sell any. Those ads are also grouped, and not next to text discussing them; both are a big no-no to HP. I would dump all the Amazon ads as unlikely to earn anything but pennies (and most likely not even that).
I would break your paragraphs into smaller bits, and perhaps add more sub-headings. Web reading just doesn't lend itself well to digesting huge chunks of text. It's geared towards people with short attention spans.
Actually, I've been dabbling in scribbling on the interwebz (off-and-on, mostly off) for close to twenty years. Things you can get away with in typical long form or academic writing just won't fly for this audience.
I was reading "The Trial" by Franz Kafka recently, and noticed that he had some paragraphs that stretched on for three or four pages. He can apparently get away with it. Dude's sold a buttload of books.
But that pacing would spell certain death for web content. Stick "The Trial" on a webpage, and I'd bet a grand total of approximately zero surfers would make it through even one paragraph.
And the majority of those who even tried would probably sit there slack-jawed and drooling for about seven seconds before clicking away to the next thing.

Hi allSo I had a lot to say on this hub and it came in at just around 6,000 words. I'm not sure whether it might be worth splitting up into three parts or something to make it a little more accessible?

Today I posted a comment on a hub that confused me. I'm curious if I'm in the wrong here. I was confused by a section of the hub and I said:Why does it say "We sent New York journalist Sam Merrill (whose previous "Playboy Interviews" have included those with Ed Asner, Roy...
