    It is really badly written and I can see nothing good in it. My first impulse is to delete it. You concur?

      It's streets ahead of much of the stuff we get asked to review here. I did notice some typos - you could easily pick them up if you read the text out loud. You could also add an image at the top of the hub - an attractive image draws people in.

      The main problem is, that there are probably a trillion pages on the same topic. If I were looking for a vacation guide, I'd skim right past any links to HP. If you could find some way to add a unique twist to the hub then it might stand a fighting chance.

        Yup, the main problem probably is that it's difficult to get traffic for travel articles, so the question then becomes is it worth the effort to fix it up.

        Thanks.

      Your biggest problem is that this is a bland read and no different from anything you can find a million other places.  It would be much better if you described your own experiences there.

      Another problem is that it does not seem focused.  The blurb about coffee at the end just doesn't seem to fit because it is too specific.

      I think you can save this one, but it will take a good deal of upgrading.  Be careful, too, to make sure your ads match what you are talking about and are wide screen so that they will be properly placed in mobile apps.

      Your best bet would be to divide this hub into separate sections and write a hub about each one.\

      Good luck.

    I agree with TT2 - it's well written as is all your stuff, BUT the subject matter is not engaging enough. 

    Travel articles always have lots of competition from specialist travel sites and Wikipedia.  There's really no point in publishing a strictly factual article about a place, because your article won't be able to compete with those sites.  Where you CAN compete is to add your own experience of the place, "secret" tips or "off the beaten track" tips etc.

      Nope. Just going to delete. It wasn't focused. All the criticism is well placed. I would rather upgrade other articles that have a better chance of getting into the Serps. Thanks for your input.
