WOW, what an insightful post, Paul made, today. I feel rejuvenated and hopeful.
My plan is to remove as many products from my hubs and only leave those necessary to make meaningful comparisons.
I do have one major issue still left unanswered:
I am concerned about how the photos don't work according to what readers web-wide expect. When readers click on a hub's photo, instead of being taken (as is the web's norm) to learn more about the issue/product, they get a confusing regurgitation of every image the hub has.
It's been my experience with what I've learned writing on the web, is visitors won't take even two seconds to figure out what is going on. They want what they have come to expect and when it's not delivered, they leave.
Is there a way to remove the "See all___ photos" feature?
I know I can add a link below the photo but that's not what visitors expect when they see the 'little hand;' they think it's going to take them where they can learn more, etc. With speed such a crucial factor on all web-user issues, I believe the site can be much improved by omitting this perplexing functionality.
I hope It's just my own ignorance and I can turn that feature off but I can't find anything about it as yet.
Here's the link, Linda. I hope I'm not breaking any rules but surely not.
Of course you'll need to hit "latest posts" and scroll to Paul's yellow highlighted post.

I seldom write product hubs, and only write them if I use and like the product. I have four hubs like this. They have never been in my list of possible hubs to put in the "Featured" spot on my profile page, although they all have over 85 scores. This makes it even more impossible than it...

I know traffic is a problem everywhere it seems; I'm not talking about low traffic, here. We all need to be aware of the HP's photo capsule may be affecting our bounce rates. There is a real problem if you use the photo capsule for anything-- even the intro photo. I'm NOT referring to the images...

I really like the new Q&A feature on individual hubs. What I'd like to know is if there's a way to delete a question if it's inappropriate?For example, I have one now. Let's say the hub is about apple pies, their origin and history, and the question is 'What is apple?' That's just a made up...

It would be useful to be able to sort our hubs into categories on the profile page. This would make it easier for readers to see what else is available in subjects that interest them, and also remind writers to work on a niche. I think the option was available on the old profile page - was it...

I know we discussed this on forums before, but a few weeks have passed. How does everyone feel about this feature now?I am considering turning it to Pause. Most of the people who write in to me have not even read the article. They are trying to get astrology information. I don't mind a few, simple...
