Could fellow rubbers recommend how I could improve and increase readership of my hub, "Delightful Barcelona"? I covered highlights for a short trip to this dynamic city.
I'm not a rubber, but I would suggest making your photos full width instead of those tiny thumbnails.
Also, you should title your hubs to better reflect what they are about. This hub seems to be a list of things for tourists to do, so maybe "7 Sights to See in Barcelona" or "7 Easy Things to Do in Barcelona as a Tourist" or something along those lines. "Delightful Barcelona" is too vague for the typical web surfer who is looking for specific information. Good luck!
I am amazed that you devote a whole section to a fast-food joint that is not even local. Barcelona abounds in glorious eating places serving the best of Catalan cuisine. Why are you recommending a McDonald lookalike? Surely people visiting Barcelona would prefer to sample local foods rather than American pap!
You also omit to mention the incredible La Sagrada Familia and the other fabulous buildings designed by Gaudi, not to forget Puig i Cadafalch’s amazing Gothic Casa Amatller.
Oh, BTW, Barcelona is the capital of Catalunya. Catalan is the main language spoken here, not Spanish. Barcelona has lived through a sad history of Spanish imperialism. The vast majority of people I met each time I visited Barcelona are longing for the day when Catalunya finally succeeds in becoming independent from its Spanish oppressor.
Thanks for your comments, WriteAngled.
We did visit La Sagrada Familia on another occasion. Churches are not our main focal point, but thanks for mentioning it.
Catalan cuisine emphasizes shellfish and pork, whereas my husband and I do not eat meat, poultry, or shellfish. We eat vegetables, pasta, beans and legumes, fish with scales, and dairy (milk products, such as cheeses,but not made with rennet, which comes from cows.) Therefore, whenever we travel, it is a challenge finding a lunch spot where we can eat. We found Maoz convenient to the Picasso Museum, having found no other certain sources of lunch that met our dietary restrictions. Maoz offered tasty, nutritious vegetables, which I would not compare with Mc Donald's.
We are aware that Catalan is the principal language of Barcelona, however, I speak Spanish and found that natives we met on the street or in museums, train stations, restaurants appreciated our very polite, friendly
Spanish, which they understood better than our English.
My article did not address political issues but offered one perspective on magnificent Barcelona.
I would break things up between text and images; text box, then full length image; text box, then full length image. That way the images aren't kind of bunched up all together and it doesn't disrupt the flow of the article. Also, I'd make the images full length, especially the ones near the bottom that create a lot of white space. It's better to not have white space. Also full length image come out better on mobile.

So here I am, dreaming of another sultry Sunday afternoon, sipping on a slightly subdued mango margarita, and silently wishing I was wasting life away off the coast of somewhere beautiful. Of course, my mental illusions are far different from physical realities. I haven't ventured outside in...

I calculated that if my page views continue at their current rate, I'll get my first payout in 2016!!! I better go get back to happy hubbing. Also, received my first Zzz tonight, a sleepy poem. Ho hum. Forgive my humorous cynicism but I do believe that as I produce more quality-optimized and search...

When you add an Amazon capsule and it says there are no Amazon results found, can you choose your own product from Amazon's catalogue or list? I went to log in my Amazon page but could not find anything on how to do it. . . I saw a hub before saying he have done it, but I could not remember the...
