I edited a hub for the first time. I've only been around for two weeks so I guess it isn't a "finally" type of situation but it was needing to happen. Low hubscore on the hub and all that.
You won't be able to see what it *looked* like the first time around but the text was as follows, with just some Amazon and Ebay links included and nothing else. No images, no links, no news feed, etc.
"First things first, understand that you probably don't know the golfer as well as you think you do! Unless you regularly golf with the individual being gifted, please, please, please do not purchase gear, clothing or equipment for your golfer! Each individual has his or her own preferences and most golfers, while they appreciate your effort, do not want to receive alternate brands.
Additionally, don't assume that your golfer would like to receive golf "paraphenalia." For example, photos of favorite golfers, golf calendars or shirts with golf clubs on them. He might not like Tiger Woods and she might not want to display that golden golf ball on her desk at work. Be tasteful, please! If your golfer likes these items, let her purchase them for herself!
Some suggestions of items that my golfer husband would appreciate receiving as a gift are gift cards or certificates for greens fees, golfing event tickets, golf books (not necessarily instructional books) and videos. "

I'm wondering what people think of the revisions and if somebody can tell me how to fix the fact that Adsense is bumping my amazon capsule *down* which is completely screwing with the layout of the page
Are you using separate text capsules for each section of your Hub? it's the only thing I can think of for the reason the ads are going between your text. The info is great though.
Yes, they are separate. I hadn't thought about that! I will try changing it and see what happens... My only concern of course is that the Amazon capsule still isn't going to be quite where I want it to, but at least it won't be ugly!

I posted a new Hub this morning which included an Amazon capsule with 8 or 9 related items in it. However when I went back to look it over after publishing, the Amazon capsule was not showing up, there's just a blank...

My Amazon sales are dead in the water. My Amazon Caps are discrete - I have added only when directly related to a product.I am not getting much traffic at the mo, so I guess this is an issue. I posted around 60 Hubs in...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not...

For the first time since writing at HP, I have had an email saying that a Hub cannot be featured because it has "spammy elements." The email goes on to say that it could be that an ad is not related to the...
