Hello Chef Jeff, I have a question for you.
I just wondered if you can give me a tip or two on how to raise my ratings and are you making any money?
I haven't made a penny yet, but I enjoy writing too much to care about the cash. As for getting higher ratings, I try to get fans, and then I keep in touch with them, going to their hubs and responding with comments. The more you talk with them, the more they visit your hubs.
This gets rather difficult when you have many hubs and many fans, but an occasional stop by lets them know you are still interested, and they usually respond.
Also, if you can get you hub connected to the wider web, having others link it for you, that helps a lot. And I find that keeping the text readable, using small paragraphs, helps on the Internet. Sometimes you see an excellent story that is hard to read because of lack of punctuation or paragraphs, and people may just skip by it. A few pictures also help.
Please let me know if this helps, and if I can think of anything else I will write you again!
P.S., write from the heart; that also catches positive attention! Also, do what you are doing now - ask questions of other hubbers. Most will respond with new ideas I haven't thought of. Then write a hub about what you've learned!

I'm sure there are many reasons for and against responding to comments left by your readers. What do you think?

Some times I get really dumb questions. For instance, some asked "Are dragons real?" are a hub that was all about the reasons for dragon myths and which made clear that dragons are not real. Should I give a brief response: "No, dragons are not real." Or should I just...

On the 18th May, my hub was flagged for being over promotional.I removed some links of so called prohibited sites (affiliate links) and left in a very useful link to my article on Ezine Articles and a Squidoo lens of mine which is also very informative on the same subject. I submitted the hub for...
