    Well, I know some SEO and what I need to do, and I have had successfully optimized pages that are getting great results. The problem is with my most recent Hub:


    I used a free "bot" analyzer, that shows what Google Bots see and counts keywords etc. I write everything for humans, but try to make it work for bots to.

    The problem with this Hub is its images. If you look, I used the image thumbnails where you click it it enlarges the image. I also put the text about each figure into each image.

    The problem is, with it set like that its effecting the Source Data of the page. The bots are actually weighting the urls of the images, rather then the keywords I wish them to. Here is an example of what I am getting for a Hub thats ok:

    Halloween Coloring Pages - October coloring fun for kids!
    The results are:

    You can see, there relevant and the 3 long search is "Halloween Coloring Pages"

    Now look at the anime figure one:
    All of the key terms are like "urlhalfpad http hubpages" and "jpg urlhalf" and "jpg caption" and many other keywords having to do with the formatting of the Images.

    If you look at the page source on the figure hub, it lists css like this:

    So, how can I fix my page so I can have it be search engine friendly, and also be nice looking for humans? The images are really needed to increase the value of the hub. But im afraid that if I just put the images normal one after another people won't read the bottom, or it will make the page way to long etc. Also, im afraid after doing that it will not even help.

    I really am in a bind here, any suggestions are really appreciated at this point!

      Hopefully I'm answering your question correctly ...

      Take out the images, optimize the hub, then place the images back in. To my knowledge, Google only considers them for inclusion in Google Images. If I'm right (I'm crossing my fingers) that should do the trick for you. If I'm wrong, go out in your yard and slap a chipmunk and I will feel the pain. smile

        I dont think thats the right answer yoshi. The page is optimized like all the others I did, including the Halloween one, the only difference is the dang images...Each one is listed way to many times.

    No, yoshi, im saying the css for the thumbnail presentation setting lists all images 3 times for there withdhs with urls. This coding text is being read by the google bot resulting in horrible rankings. The time Hubpages URL and Http come up it factors into what is seen. I am thinking to fix it I would need to post each one out full going down. I don't know why this kind of picture display (its very good for human viewers) is being taken so heavily in keyword density and resulting in more random BS results for keyterms to find it.

    Thranax, I don't think the thumbnail pictures are adding any value to your hub and in fact they are probably taking away any interest in clicking on your Amazon products.  Sinc you are only showing them as further examples, I would remove them completely and maybe put links to them in a link module.

    Well guys, I took off the slideshow/thumbnail setting and it fixed my problem. Its just a long, long scroll down now. But see the improved list of keywords compared to the last set:

    I wish Hubpages could do something about that, because I would love to use that thumbnail or slideshow tool...
