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 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...

I have posted about this before but I cannot understand how the 'Related Hubs' feature works at all because it seems to be a matter of luck as to whether you get any even when you know damned well there are plenty of related hubs here. It cannot be a matter of time either because I have posted hubs...

There has been various complaints about this feature, but I have discovered it is a great way to discover other Hubbers I would not have found. If you follow these Hubbers, new Hubbers are selected to be viewed, so it is just as much for your own personal use as for visitors to your Hubs.

Please add a print page capsule feature for printing recipes or other DIY instructions to make it easier for the user to print just the ingredients and directions or DIY instructions for the hub they are viewing. Almost all recipe sites have this feature. Maybe users would be more...
