    Hello and Welcome to HubPages. I'll check out your hub, but first I would like to inform you of something.

    When posting in the "Extreme Hub Makeover" forum thread, you can post the link or links that you would like checked out.

    I've posted your one hub, with my post of this message.

    This is one of the places you are allowed to post links without getting your link removed for self-promotion.

    Please do read the forum rules and HubPages FAQ.

    Well, from what I can see....

    (a) you have used only one capsule. Breakdown your text into separate capsules, so as to take advantage of more ad placements.

    (b) you need to add more keywords related to your content. The average is between 9-15 keywords/tags. You'll be able to add some by putting them into the little white box to the right on each hub. Sometimes, depending on length and content, you can go upwards to 20-25 keywords, but make sure it's very long in content.

    Otherwise, it appears you could use punctuation, such as periods, commas and the alike. You have some very long sentences people cannot say in one breath.

    Good luck. smile

      Thanks for the advice. I am not familiar with ads and keywords, so I will research that and get up to speed, Thanks again.

        All of your hubs will have GOOGLE Adsense ads on them. You have no choice in this manner, because HubPages' association with GOOGLE and GOOGLE Adsense.

        The placement of these ads or to make more can help. The keywords/tags are for SEO optimization.

        There are plenty of more veteran hubbers in the community, who have written plenty on everything you need. It will help you in the long run.

        Don't use GOOGLE search to find them...use the search feature HubPages uses to find hubbers or topics or use keywords to locate everyone who has something written. The search feature on HubPages works great. smile

    You can sign up for GOOGLE account in your affiliate section, which is located by the link in the upper portion of your statistics page.

    When you click the "affiliate section" link, it will bring you to another page where you can enter in all the different affiliate programs allowed by HubPages.

    Once you sign up for those, should you choose to do so, at minimum you'll want to use GOOGLE Adsense and Amazon affiliates to help you make some money while you write.

    You'll get a confirmation email when you sign up for them and be given affiliate codes, which you can enter on this page.
