I have written a few hubs now and have moderate to no activity. It has been suggested to me that I throw myself at your mercy and ask for honest constructive crticisms that may help me to provide a better hub. It is very hard to offend me and I am expecting to hear about my weaknesses so please be totally honest. I appreciate it!
Poetry doesn't seem to be popular - nor does writing about things at length - for the money angle. I find the popular hubs a bit like a cheap magazine with how to do something. If you want to get commercial I guess you need to write about a commercial product, and if you can find a way to get sexy girls in it then the traffic seems to rocket. Or you can go on writing thoughtful stuff and (to be brutally honest - sorry) not such good poetry that expresses something within you just fine, just not very well. I would first run your poetry past a dedicated poetry forum that gives feedback which, although it is usually in the form of vicious advice, is still advice.
Thank you, China Man. That poem is actually 10 years old and I agree that it is poorly expressed. I posted it to add to the topic of healing but I am not sure I will be adding any more poetry anyway.
As for the lengthy stuff, I will take your opinion to heart and try to shorten them or make them more poignant. Thank you.
Hey - I said it expresses well - but is poorly written. and I am only giving my observations having been here a couple of weeks - you should wait for a grown up hubber to advise before you do anything I believe there is a forum especially for this on here somewhere.
Although I do not consider myself a Grown-up Hubber I could suggest some of the things that I have been told in the past. Add pictures and videos to back up your topic with visuals. Break up your text more by using more text capsules and paragraph headings, learn SEO, Backlinking, and Key Word uses. There are a number of Senior Hubbers that have written a lot of good advice on these thing. just search for any of the topics in the site. Read other Hubs, see how the tob rated hubs are layed out. Amazing people, these hubbers, Everyone is so willing to help.
I’m not a hub a hub expert at all, but I know a little about writing. I took a quick look at your healing hub and I would say kill paragraph 1 and start at “denial” then try to fit your keywords in there, which I would suggest should be “healing from rape”.
Thank you both for your honest insight. I really do appreciate the feedback!

I'm bored. Ok correction, I'm procrastinating. I randomly come on and off the forums and on this return visit I've seen SO many people questioning why their hubs aren't making money and/or getting traffic.So for as long I'm having fun, feel free to post below (either for your whole account or one...

Is it rude to point out grammar/spelling mistakes on hubs via comments?I've come across numerous hubs that have grammar and spelling errors, some minor and some littered with mistakes. Otherwise, these hubs would be interesting and will written in my opinion. Is it rude to point out these mistakes...

As a member of Hubpages for 3 weeks, I have only published 2 hubs. I am trying to figure out what has not already been published, and publish on my interests. If anyone has the time and is willing to take a serious look at my Hubs I would greatly appreciate advice on helping to make...

What do you think guys?

I have had a few poems receive non-featured status. I've been able to revive them by adding a couple of text paragraphs to expound on the topic of the poem while maintaining the integrity of the poem. It lengthens the hub, extending its survival, and therefore, making it more searchable. I've also...
