    If you have a few minutes to post feedback here on how I can improve my hubbing technique and increase traction / traffic I'd appreciate it.I will return the favour by adding feedback for somebody else when I know the rules and can apply them effectively.

    The Reiki hub is the one I'm spending most time on at the moment so that would be my option for feedback.It seems to be building slowly. Is there a way to build it more effectively or is it all dependent on my overall activity?

    Thanks in advance

      Dennis here are a couple of things that caught my eye. 1. What exactly is Reiki? Please define. 2. Utilize the word " We" as "I" is being used to much. For ex: we normally etc. 3. It could also use more pics as it needs visuals on understanding what Reiki is or its purpose. smile

        My sentiments exactly. Also...try to extend the length of your Hubs. Short ones don't do well overall..

    Your hub on Joe Vitale is very short, and could be considered just as a promo.
    Perhaps give some more info about him, and not his sales process - which I found to be quite repulsive.

    Ditto to what others have said about your Reiki hub. Most people know nothing about it, so a couple of paragraphs leading in to the topic would be great.

    Cheers, Eric G.

    After reading your page on Reiki, I noticed on major flaw.  You're telling us a story.  You're not showing us what Reiki is or how it can help us either as customers or practitioners. 

    Don't get me wrong, it's a good thing to start in with a story to hook your reader, if you can, but you have to inform people what it's about.  Who taught you how to do Reiki?  What does training entail?  Where can go go to get such training?  How does Reiki work?  Why is this a good thing for me to do or why is it a good thing to train for it? 

    As you answer those questions, you can use case studies to prove your points and keep interest in your page rather than just talking at people.  Also try to add pictures, video and links to Reiki sites.  Google and Hubpages both like that and tend to reward that sort of thing with traffic.

    Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it and the time it took you all.I'm adding to each of my hubs as I go along so the length will increase. At the moment I'm posting between shifts of my day job and paying for internet access so 30 minute blocks are all I can manage. This is dictating the length of hubs for now but I will revisit each next week and add some more detail / information.
    Once again thanks for your input.

    I agree with all the other guys, but I would like to stress the Image is important, and don't forget the caption.
    Break your text up into an number of capsules.
    If internet time is important, build your Hubs on your own computer at home and then copy and paste when you get on line.
