I want to know if my first hub is read-worthy. I wrote my first Hub last night after researching for about two days for the numbers and facts. I love me some football and just recently became almost too into it. If you get a chance can you read it? Thanks!
Hi, crystalkuhns. Welcome to HubPages.
In my opinion, you've got a well-written hub. It's always nice to see someone who is meticulous in his/her writing. It's a little short for a hub, though.
Put a poll on your hub -- quickly! That might attract interest.
Just ask: Who do you think is going to win the SEC Championship? (A) Florida or (B) Alabama
Your hub will only have short-term interest,since it's about an event that will soon be over. However, football fans here might like to vote. You need traffic as a newbie.
I know you asked about the writing itself. Hope you don't mind the suggestions about optimizing traffic.
No! That was great help thank you very much! I will get a poll on there now. I need more traffic!
also, you can post a link to your hub in this forum, and more people might click on it. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/26980
there also is a sports forum with a thread about who will win.
you may want to make an appearance, but don't post your link there, maybe just participating in the thread may bring you some traffic.
I'm a gators fan.
welcome to HP.
Not bad at all for your first hub! Great job. I hope you expand your stories to other topics too. I became a fan, keep it going!
Yeah, a real shame I can't vote, but I don't follow college football.
I would also recommend putting "SEC championship poll" and "college football polls" as tags on your hub.
I am sure that college football is a very competitive topic on the search engines, but you want to drive traffic to your articles if possible. Good luck.

Hi,I've signed up and am ready to start making hubs in my specialised subject, but I was wondering what the earning potential of hubbig (if that's a word) actually is. I realise it all depends on how attractive your pages are and how good they are etc, but what are people actually earning? I am not...

I suppose with the latest Google Panda update and all the low traffic we've been getting, I guess it's time to start writing more hubs. While I wasn't affected too badly by the update, I still want to increase my traffic and hit payout next month or the month after. I want to hit 80 hubs by the end...

My daily earnings have dropped drastically -- WHY? Is it because HP has pulled ads on my hubs due to the "unfeatured" hubs, which are mostly poems? Are poems not worthy of being featured and getting daily earnings? And WHY does HP decide what should or should not be featured?...

Just gaging anyone else's earnings here. I just checked google adsense and I have earned 64 dollars in 18 months. I've only written 19 Hubs and most of them don't get any traffic. Any thoughts?

Is there any value in writing hubs purely for traffic? I have always written to a niche that I know I can make cash on despite very low traffic volumes, but while I make money (and I assume HP must be making money too) my HubScore fluctuates between the high sixties and low eighties. I am hoping a...
