My most embarassing hub!

    There is this hub of mine that always drifts from about 62 to 72. Its views over a 6 month period gave me about 1.2 views a day which mean it's really an embarassment to me. I am thinking of disowning it coz if you look at the subject, it's not one where I can add more "meat" to. I could fill it up with more words but me thinks it's not worth it.

    On second thought, the majority of my articles are Ubuntu-related, while this one is all by itself along with my Beatles article. Do you think this is the reason why it's doing poorly? Or is the choice of subject really weak?

    (When I started the article, my intention was to come up with a short article that will allow me to increment my hub count by one. I'd already achieved that. big_smile

    Further note: I'd recently brushed it up a bit, so please don't say I didn't try -_-)

    It's here (replace the double x's):

    There's nothing wrong with that one.  Why would you be embarrassed?  It's short, so maybe it's not ranking on Google or something, but that's hardly reason to be embarrassed.  Seems like good advice to me for people who want to find out about the game schedule.

      Maybe, coz it's shorter than my other hubs and ranked lower than the rest. Thanks for checking it out. wink

    I dont know where to begin to find my most embaressing Hub since they constantly fluctuate, lol big_smile another Hub in a related subject matter and linked to your designated embaressing Hub could probably help lift it up. smile Just a thought.

    In an inspired moment, I looked up "quicky" and found that it is an alternative spelling of quickie. I have since then, added in "quicky" into my hub and convinced myself that I had actually wanted to use quicky rather than quickly.
    There is no need to redo my hub and there may be a Monkey God after all. big_smile
    TQ to all who commented! smile
