I joined HP a while ago but I'm now starting to get more into it. I've written a few hubs already and have a ton of ideas for new hubs but would like some of the more experienced hubbers to take a look at what I've done so far. If you have some free time (funny, I know) can you please look at some of the ones I've already written and let me know what you think? I'd much appreciate it! Thanks!
Welcome! Your hubs are great. I suggest you add photos. Especially to that wonderful wedding hub.
Glad to see you on hubpages. I am another late bloomer. I was here for 2 years but didnt participate much until a couple of months ago.
Hey there, welcome to HubPages
First off - your meta tag. the grab line, the part surfers will see on the internet is: I’ve never been the girl who dreamt of her wedding day. Honestly, growing up, I never wanted to get married. Career, yes. Kids, yes. Husband, no thank you. As we all know, life doesn’t always...
It doesn't really 'grab'.
It should include your keyword and related phrases. Something along the lines of: Are you looking for cheap wedding ideas? How to plan an inexpensive wedding from a real life budget bride - Unique budget wedding themes and ideas.
Tags - too many and most are far too generic. Hone them: I'd suggest: cheap wedding, cheap wedding ideas, cheap wedding dress, cheap wedding decorations, inexspensive wedding ideas, budget wedding ideas, creative wedding ideas, cheap wedding invitations - and so on.
If you're writing for the love of it, change nothing. Because it is written well. If you're expecting to make money, you'll have to write in order to do so. That means giving google what it wants on page.
The keywords above are right there for all to see - related searches. That's googles way of saying 'this is what we want to see'
Add a bit more media. Break the page up. Make your links open up in another window - currently they take the reader off and away from your hub.
Good luck, whatever you do decide one.
Thank you so much! I knew, but for some reason ignores the whole 'grab' piece! I've heard conflicting information regarding the keywords. Originally only had the specifics, but added the more obscure, I'll stay with my gut next time. Thanks again.
Welcome to all you new hubbers. You just made this club even better. Have fun writing and keeping your hubs fresh in content
and informative. Also, when you give your hub exposure Be careful on not spamming outside communities. Know there policies.
Also, consider "Redgage". And, "Youtube" by adding your article in the about me section and some in your bulletin section.
You can also use free classified ads for more exposure. Again,
ask authorization before you do this with the free classified ads team.
GOod luck to all.
