    Ok I have made my first hub.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.  Now I need to figure our how to raise my profile score.  It was 30 yesterday and today it is 18.  What happened.

    Don't worry about your score -- it will go up over time. Just keep publishing.

    Nice job on the hub! However, your keyword is "cell phone contracts" because, evidently, no one is searching for how to cancel them. "Cell phone contracts" gets approx. 1,000 searches per month and the CPC is good at $1.86 (of which you would make a portion per click). And yet, you only use that term twice -- once in the URL and once in the hub's title. It's not used anywhere else -- not even in the tags. I like to have my primary keyword show up in the URL, Title, first sentence, once towards the end of the hub and in at least one text capsule title -- and in the tags.

    And your tags are very general. You really need to have a mix of general and more "niche" tags. General rule of thumb is 10 to 15 tags (it does make a big difference). Some folks swear by using more than that.
