Do you think the instructions will be easy to follow?
You might want to rework your first sentence To be honest, I'd delete it. Writers often begin their articles with one of those generalisations that mean not very much. I'm probably guilty of it myself. If you read a lot of hubs, you'll notice it more and more.
"These days the internet is becoming increasingly more popular."
"More people, these days..."
"It's common to find more widgets in homes..."
And so on. Avoid them at all costs.
First, fix your bio. You are allowed up to 25 different bios and you should make maximum use of that. So if you're writing about real estate, your bio talks about your real estate experience (but doesn't mention motherhood). If you're writing about toys, talk about your experience as a mother (but doesn't mention real estate). And so on.
I agree with Raggededge, your first sentence is too general. Bear in mind that your reader can't see your summary - they'll see it on the Google search result, but it doesn't appear on the Hub.
When a reader arrives on a Hub from Google, they're looking for an answer. In this case, they want to know how to make slime. You have one or two sentences to convince them you're going to give them that recipe - otherwise, they'll click back to Google and check out the next result. Waffle, even for a sentence or two, and you've lost them.
The Hub is probably too short, too. I'm sure you've gathered by now that the secret of success is to get your Hub transferred to a niche site, and that's not likely to happen for very short Hubs. Aim for 800 to 1,500 words. I can see how it would be hard to find more to say about how to make the slime, but perhaps you could add something about where to buy slime if they don't want to make it, and you could also add one or two more videos. Also could you say something about what to use it for?

When you read another person's hub, do you typically read the entire article?I recently published a hub which I intended to be humorous. The humor was in the final sentence in which the real meaning of the hub was changed; a twist, you might call it. Judging from the lack of response, I...

I'm looking for a sentence or two that are obviously spun from an article spinner program. I've been told they are easy to pick out, but want a few solid examples please.

I have an article that an editor has made substantial changes too. Including adding a bio that they wrote themselves. I have not seen an edit this bad in quite some time on one of my articles, and I do not want to go through the whole article and rewrite half of it. I've already spent countless...

I check with 3 different duplicated content checkers one said 98% original the other one said 93% original then the last one said original content. Should I just resubmit my article?

Last weekend I sent in my Benefits of a Gym Membership hub to Calorie Bee. And today it was declined for the same old reasons in the rejection email. Any ideas on how to improve it would be great, since I've thought it would be a good fit for other readers to read it on the niche. Here's the link:...

Can YOU read between the lines? Do you understand what is actually been said when you read something?A few days ago, I wrote a post entitled, “Your freedom comes at my expense” and gave three examples. At the end of each example, I asked the question, “Is he right?”Virtually everybody who...
