    Hi all,

    I'm fresh off the boat to hubpages (geez, I don't even think I speak the language... RSS and SOE sound like dangerous acronyms to me!) and posted a hub to get my feet wet. I would really appreciate any feedback you would care to give me to improve my hubs and make them more enjoyable to read!

    Thank you so much for your input.

      I think this is a really great first hub. I suggest being more specific with your keywords. It will help get a higher page rank and more relevant google ads.

        Thank you. I'm still learning about creating specific keywords, but I plan to work on those! Like I said, this is all new to me so far. Nothing like a little learning curve to create a challenge. Thank you so much for your advice.

      Thank you. I hope to improve with a little practice. I'm finding writing hubs is a lot like writing feature articles. I've got the writing skills, I think I just need to brush up on the technical a little bit.

    Hi Eveliens

    Welcome to HubPages - it's a great community to write and chat and I'm sure you will enjoy your time here.

    Hard to believe that's your first hub - it's good.  About the only thing I could find was that I like to reserve the top right spot (your community tank picture) for a google ad.  That usually means a short first text capsule.

    If you're interested the hub also almost begs to me to have an Amazon capsule somewhere in it.

    Keep up the good work - you'll go places here.

      Thank you for the feedback! So far I'm enjoying hubpages quite a bit and finding it very friendly.

      I've been noticing on other hubs that they leave that top spot open too. I think I might do the same and tweak the layout a little.

      Also, I was considering an Amazon capsule, probably to beginner kit tanks and good beginner books, since I don't think they sell live fish (it might scare me a little if they did).

    Added an easy reference chart at the bottom and an Amazon Capsule and removed the top picture. I also bolded the names of the fish. Thank you everyone for your help!

      its good from my point of view, its obvious that much time is spent on it, maybe its just me but ı found your english too heavy.

      1. eveliens profile image75
        eveliensposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        I'm guessing by heavy you either mean too flowery or too complex. Duly noted. I tend to be a motormouth writer, so I'll be sure to keep the dead weight to a minimum.
