Hello, newbie here, have just tried to publish my first hub and have fallen at the first fence. What I am trying to publish is a comic strip which I have in a single JPEG format, in short my hub consists of one picture. I did put a little bit of text under it (one sentence), but it is not being allowed due to lack of content. Before I try filling it out, can someone tell me what the minimum amount is that you can have on a hub - or - If I break the strip up to contain six individual JPEGS and put it in a slide show, would that be enough?
You're going to need to produce written content for the automated filter to allow you to publish. Just images isn't going to do it.
I think you'll need at least 100 words, but I know from my own Hubs that if you can do more, you'll actually stand a better chance of the search engines taking note of the page.
Fudbucket, Relache has a point - you're going to have trouble getting noticed by search engines with just one image, because it will only come up in image searches.
If you're happy with just a Hubber audience, that may not matter to you, but if you want to attract more readers, you need to give some thought to how you're going to create a larger internet footprint.
Maybe write a background to the strip and even write a description so that the blind can know what is going on?
Honestly, Hubpages is not the best place to post comicstrips. If the comic is your own creation, there are plenty of other websites that will provide hosting services for your webcomic and give you better traffic. If you're interested, I could share some with you.
Thanks guys, all information understood and inwardly digested. Can you also tell me if there is a maximum amount of content I can put in? I intend to re-write one of my old short stories to put up, can't remember the rough word count, but I do remember it filled six pages of A4.
No upper word/charactter count limit.
Fiction doesn't do all that well online in terms of advertising revenue. It's the nature of the online world. When people search, they're mainly searching for answers to questions or information.
I wouldn't dismiss it completely, but just letting you know which way the monetization leans.
Understood, but it's what I do best. I do have one or two ideas for non fiction hubs so I'll be doing those as well.

I have been getting a decent amount of traffic from google but I recieve very little traffic from yahoo and the other search engines. I used to own a website with the same problem. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong, or if this is normal?

I just read a Hub that said that the author was going to go to the freelance website and pay people to write articles for him that he would put on HubPages to make himself money from. That can't be okay with the HubPages site, is it? A couple of people commented, including an author that I have...

First reason:Any article is handicapped by moderators if it doesn't please them. Your article won't appear in search engines purely because it is not featured.Second reason:You cannot publish your articles elsewhere! Your articles are not even visible in search engines and yet HubPages use...

I guess poems are also literature, There are some great poems being endorsed on HP. Shouldn't good poetry be appreciated? Comments

After me saying this afternoon that no one has stolen my work for online purposes, it happened. I noticed this evening that a copy of one of my hubs is in a forum called Spot25. Some guy by the name of Eric posted it in its entirety and put a line at the bottom saying the article came...
