    This hub just isn't performing as well as my others. Any critique would be appreciated!

      Maybe include the most common seasons or holidays it is made during, and if there is any history about where it came from.

        Thanks Hippie-Girl. I'll give that a shot. I guess a little more elaboration couldn't hurt.

      Hi abetterwaytolive!  This hub is different from your other recipe hubs; it doesn't have an introductory paragraph. 

      Good Luck!

        Wow. Thank you. I think that is probably it. My score has since gone way up and now all five of my hubs are editors choices, but it is still the lowest performing of the five so I will make that correction and see what happens! Thank you again so much for your input.

          Remember, just because you edit, doesn't mean it will perform well. I have a few hubs that I edit and edit over and over, and they still don't do well. Others, I have edited, and in a few weeks, they were doing great.

    The picture is not very appealing IMHO

      Thank you psycheskinner. I didn't think so either. I really do appreciate that. I think I'm going to try and change it. I guess I'm going to have to wait until I make another batch in a couple weeks though.

        If you can manage to shoot it in daylight or just under strong multiple sources of light (and no flash) I think that helps.

    A lot of scrolling to do just to read hmm but it's a good hub smile maybe align the pics to the right and text to the left and re-size pics so they're not in a person's face? also, your title is too long, maybe have 'Easy Soup recipe' somewhere?

      I like your suggestions. I'll incorporate a couple of these and see if it helps out. Thanks so much for your help!

    I think it would help if you would Put in a background behind the items used and somehow change it so that the two lists are off-set from one another. Also a little introduction before the lists would be helpful as well.

      @cygnetbrown: Very good suggestion. I have made this improvement. Let's see if that helps. Thank you very much!

        I think it looks much better!

    One cheat wink photo edit some parsley onto that pic of your soup. Take a 'free' pic of parsley, make it's background transparent then paste it as a layer atop your soup pic. We got to remember that rule for chefs tongue keep in mind, 'presentation'.

    Posted my 2nd hub, and traffic is almost virtually the same as the first. Is there anything I'm missing that would improve these scores?
