I have submitted this hub for consideration for being moved to the HealDove website. The editor came back with the following suggestions.
http://hubpages.com/health/Brain-Traini … -Easy-Tips
The Curator who reviewed your Hub suggests that you address the following issues:
Only add products that are specifically discussed in the article and that you (or someone close to you) have personal experience with. Just listing a product's main features or specifications does not meet the bar. Instead, tell us why you (or someone close to you) like and use the product.
Text should be broken up into multiple capsules with clear subtitles. Think about ways you can condense the information in the article so that it is more readable and scannable (especially on mobile). Bulleted lists and table capsules are both great ways to summarize information into a more digestible format.
Very useful and interesting article. I have a couple of suggestions. 1. Add a "real name" to your account to build reader trust 2. Answer the question to your title at the top of your article. It's fairly far down in the article and could cause readers to bounce from your article. This article touches on this as well as a guide to showing up in Featured Snippets. https://moz.com/blog/ranking-zero-seo-for-answers
Questions Hubbers Can Help Me With:
I think I have addressed the Amazon capsule issue, your suggestions are welcome.
I thought it was pretty much broken-up into multiple capsules, Where or how would you break it down further. Should I use callout boxes instead of capsule titles?
I don't want to add my real name. I don't see how this would help with credibility - I am not a neurologist. Is this absolutely necessary (staff question)?
What question at the top of the article have I failed to answer? I must be missing something.
You'll notice when the moderator said use a "real name", she put it in quotes. What they really mean is, use a real-sounding name - i.e. a pen name is perfectly acceptable provided it has a first name and a surname.
She's not saying you haven't answered the question, she's saying your introduction is too long. People are arriving at your Hub wanting to know how to improve their brain function, but the advice on how to do that doesn't start till halfway down the page.
Online, people are impatient and if they start to think your Hub is just an explanation of brain function without offering any real help, they will click away and look for an article that offers them an instant answer. So look at whether you can swap things around so you offer them the answers first, and the explanation afterwards for those who are interested.
Yes, they do like you to use a callout capsule for your main headings.
Are you saying use a callout capsule instead of a standard capsule title?
Thank you for such a well considered response. I'll get busy with rearranging and thinking up a pen name.
A bulletted list after a three or four sentence intro can help.
On this page:
Learn how music can help you meditate, fall asleep more easily and wake refreshed
Essentially give a quick summary of what the page offers.
As to a name. I like parts of churches combined with something punchy, lol.
Ed Spire is one I have never used. Angela Buttress might make the cut one day. Please help yourself.
Great suggestions, I think I will go with Ian Spire. Ed seems a little dull.
You must be onto something. As I edit and review, my hub is now filled with ads for the Holy Land. I did not know it was for sale.
You need to add your "Real Name" on your My Account>Profile page. You have a lot of great information in this article.
Thanks for all of your advice everybody - it made the jump!

Last night I went in an edited a capsule so that it would be full width, which is what HP wants everyone to do. The article I edited has been published and featured since 2012. When I went in and edited, however, the editor that read it decided that it was no longer going to be featured. I was told...

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 only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

We have some exciting news, Hubbers! As of today, the Callout Capsule will be available in the HubTool for everyone. We initially enabled a limited version of the capsule to help keep imported Lenses from Squidoo as intact as possible, but we have also been listening to the numerous requests to...

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?

So, this is the third time HP has snipped Amazon from my hubs. Every time one of my Hubs is edited by HubPages to add to a network site they snip any Amazon capsules on the Hub. The Amazon capsule is always extremely relevant to the topic discussed and is not spammy, yet HubPages doesn't seem to...
