    Greetings all, I have a new hub I would appreciate some criticism on please.

    I have a nagging feeling it may be inappropriate.

    It is intended to be read as a "caution sign" to new hubbers that are thinking like I did... and as a thank-you to all the forum participants that helped me out.

    I'm pretty pleased with myself for not including a single promotional link. It's intended mostly as an internal use hub.

    here's the link: … se-adwords

    Good job realizing your errors.  What you will notice if you follow the proper way now then Hubbers will not hold it against you.

    Good work.

    Aqua - Thanks for your comment. I really did think it would be helpful to new hubbers and intend to point new hubbers to it. And since there are promo links, my motives are pure (lol)

    But thanks again your time at hubpages reassures me a little that it's not an inappropriate hub.
