    I have had this hub running for a while now and although traffic is ok I wonder if there is anything else I could do to improve it.  My Adsense income from this hub is just 0.01 since it started.  All comments welcome.

        Love the avatar. Kangaroos are so cute.

        While I can't help with your traffic & income issues (I'm new to HubPages) I did notice some errors in grammer, spelling, etc.

        While this doesn't affect your traffic (as far as I know), it's my belief that it can lower the reader's confidence in your posting.

        I'd be glad to give you specifics.  If you're interested, let me know.

        However, I found the content interesting and seemingly well researched.

        Hope this info helps.

        Have a great blogging career!

          Thanks Hawkey. I would very much like to know the area I could improve on, unfortunately all areas of english language were not my strong points at school.  Literature was the area I excelled in.

      Welcome to HubPages.

      I visited your Hub, at least the link you provided and found your hub to be a little bit short?

      On another note- it also appears that you've written the Hub within ONE text capsule. I would recommend more than one capsule.

      Otherwise, it seems fine.

        Thanks for the comment Cagsil.  On reviewing my hub I note that it is 843words.  Should I write longer hubs?

        Don't get me wrong gnrao I have really started to enjoy writing, but I would enjoy it more if I knew that people were viewing and enjoying my work and if I was getting a little for my time doing it.  I am having to do this around my current part time job and family life so I don't have much time to spare.

        But, does this have to do with this particular topic? You're not helping the situation with your post. I suggest if you want to "THANK" the community, then open a thread of your own and greet them, then say thank you to them all, in one shot.

        Just a thought.


        @Nasus loops,  if you're article has over 800 words, then I am of the understanding you will be fine. smile

      Thanks Ron, but unfortunately I am unable to find the actually hub so not much help to me.

    I would suggest using the pre-formatted bullets rather than the dash b/c they will all line up for you & indent for added readability.

    Other than that, really good! I am now a subscriber (aka follower, aka stalker).

    Are you truly qualified to carry a kangaroo / wallaby avatar? Just checking smile

      Thanks for the comments. Kangaroo pic was taken whilst on a holiday and just thought it would be a nice neutral non offensive (hopefully) avatar to all people.

    Good day my fellow hubbers. I'm new to freelance writing. I was wondering, if some of you could check out my hub and give me your honest opinion. I have thick skin, so I can take constructive criticism.

    I would use the word, baby, as a key word.

      Thanks Marcel.  I am now starting to understand that Keywords matter.  Thanks for the tip on the use of the word baby.

    Welcome Nasus! 

    My feedback:

    Move the photo down so it's next to your second text capsule.  The top right-hand corner is the prime position for ads.  If you're signed up for Adsense, leave it for that (check to make sure an ad appears there in your Preview - if it doesn't, you need to make your first text capsule a bit longer).   If you're not signed up for Adsense, you could put an Amazon capsule there.

    There are many places where you should start a new sentence but you use a comma instead. There are also a couple of places where the English sounds a little unnatural. It may help to read your Hub out loud:  the unnatural phrases will be more obvious to you.  Also, remember that a comma is only a brief pause whereas the end of a sentence is a longer one - see if that helps. 

    It would probably help to run your text through a grammar checker as well as a spell checker before you turn it into a Hub.  I'm not a fan of grammar checkers myself, because they can result in very pedestrian sentence structures - but if you take them with a big pinch of salt, and use them mainly to highlight major problems (like where to start a new sentence), they can be helpful.

      Thanks for the tips Marisa.  I will take on board what you have said and try to put them into practice.  Here goes.
