    I am in need of some feedback on my article: Three Conditions that Affect Your Weight. Any form of constructive criticism would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

      The article is interesting and well written overall.

      I can suggest a few impovements:

      1. use bullet points. Google's indexing algorithm seems to place a lot of weight on text in bullet points. It also makes the article more readable by giving an idea of what you will read later on. For example you could list the conditions that cause weight gain before discussing them.

      2.Your word count is way too low. Not counting your references, your article is under 500 words. This will not rank well in Google. Try for between 800 and 1200 words. You should expand the discussion of the conditions or add more conditions to discuss. Preferably both.

      3. Although it is not fatal, it is odd that the article's address does not match the topic and in fact contradicts it. Listing these hard to cure conditions does not make weightloss simple. In fact, if I understand correctly, the conditions you list make weightloss difficult. So how can you have an URL that says the opposite?

      4. Try to add more permitted and/or original content. You have used graphics from other websites. Even if you have permission to do so, the fact that they are duplicates of graphics found on other sites reduces your article's ranking because you will not have original content. The ideal would be for you to create and upload your own pics or graphics. If you can do something original with photoshop or some other software that would be great. If you must use content created by someone else make sure you have authorization. There are many sites out there that provide free graphics and photos. You should add more eye catching visuals.

      5. Maybe add another youtube video as long as it is organically related to your content. For example you could add videos for each of the conditions you discuss.

      If you do nothing else, increase the word count of your article (making sure to avoid word stuffing - provide actual content and value to the reader).

      Hope this helps.

    Weight loss advice probably ranks second only to cat videos on the Internet. It is a heavily saturated topic and you face almost insurmountable competition for views.

    You can't lift images from websites; the picture of Mila Kunis is clearly marked as belonging to Getty so you could face an invoice for using it. Images have to be in the public domain for use here.

      Thank you. I thought once photos were sourced it was ok. My mistake. Will remove. Thanks for your insight also on market saturation. Certainly makes sense.
