    I made my first hub!  It isn't as nice as most of them, but I think the content is good!

    Welcome, Missy! Not bad for a first hub. I have just a couple pieces of advice.

    1. You did quite a bit of keyword stuffing. I never really think that's a good idea, but if you're going to do it, do it towards the end of your hub. Google won't care, but your readers will. You want them to stay around just long enough to notice your ads. When I see keyword stuffing, I'm totally outta there.

    2. If you're keyword stuffing, you're probably trying to make money from your hubs. Unfortunately, there are some folks searching for the term "home made energy", but the advertisers are only paying approx. 5 cents per click to Google. The payout to you will be so low, it will take forever to make anything. Look for keywords that have average to low competition, good number of searches per month and $1.00 or more cost-per-click (means bigger payout to you).

    Hi!! Welcome to HP and this is always a common occurrence with new hubbers.

      1. Needs pics

      2. Needs Amazon Capsule

      3. Try to utilize 'We more instead of 'I' just a  lesson that others taught me. However for your very first hub it wasn't bad at all. smile

    Very good first hub.  As I said in my comment, I admire hubbers and can come on the forums and say, "Here I am" and back it up with a strong hub.
