Adding keywords... losing quality?

    Hi all.  I decided to use my "contest hub" to play around with adding more keywords into my hub.  This is the first time I've really done this- up until now, I've just written what I felt, and not worried too much about keyword content.  I do this for fun and self fulfillment, so I'm not too worried about traffic; however, I would like people to actually FIND my articles if they would be helpful. smile

    I'm concerned that, with the attempted use of keywords, my hub has become a little convoluted and doesn't have the same flow I usually look for.  I've been staring at it way too long to make an objective call... A fresh set of eyes and any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks so much.

      I think it is quite good, and an important subject that people need to inform themselves about. 
      I would suggest that you split up some of your long paragraphs for the sake of readability. Other than that (and even with that) I think you have done well.

        Thank you so much! I will look into splitting the paragraphs... I agree it might look less "cluttered" that way.

    Hello, Thoughtful.

    You want your hubs to read fast. This will keep folks reading until the end and coming back for more. Break up text with videos and other capsules.

    Use bullets to list interesting facts. It really works.

    Images and video do not have to be tucked to one side. A full screen video will work well in a longer hub.

    Don't be afraid to include the "in the news" capsule. It works well at the end of a hub, just before the comments section.

    Polls are nice.

    Mix Adsense and Amazon capsules throughout. This also breaks up any chunkiness longer sections of text can create.

    You have good content. You will do great. Keep writing.

      Thank you.  I haven't played at all with the "In the News" capsule.  I'll check it out.  Honestly, my time to write is so limited, that I try to focus on the writing rather than the images and videos... Its something I hope to grow into.
