8 days, 8 hubs...I've been trying to absorb as much information as I could, but for the most part it just seems like I'm overwhelming myself. I've been reading the forums and popular help hubs on keywords, backlinks, reading and answering questions and the such.
Are my topics interesting and popular enough? Is my writing ok? what's the deal with those RSS feed things? Should I use them? Tell me everything and anything. I would love to hear your comments and improve
edit: I guess I'm supposed to pick a few specific hubs so...
http://hubpages.com/hub/Everything-you- … mal-energy
http://hubpages.com/hub/World-War-2-The … Blitzkrieg
double edit: I'm thinking of focusing on writing mostly gaming/film/history hubs.
triple edit: I have 256 page views so far...is that pretty average for new users?
You're asking a lot! There is so much information out there and I'm still learning myself.
My best advice is to check out Edweirdo's hubs on RSS, http://hubpages.com/hub/Promote-Your-Ol … -RSS-Feeds
Darkside's hubs on the basics,http://hubpages.com/profile/darkside
Misha's hubs on keywords, http://hubpages.com/hub/Google-Keyword-Tool-Redefined
Susana S' hub on money http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Make-Mon … ges-Step-1
Those hubbers have some other great hubs as well, if your brain isn't full after that. By the way, you can post links to your hubs here, it's hubpages etiquette to post one link for review.
Took a look - your writing is good and grammar spelling etc well done. The layout seems to be easy to navigate and each subssection easy for googlybot-thingys to find. Looks good to me bud !
Welcome to HubPages!
I've reviewed your hub links.
(a) You have used a singular text capsule for all your text. This sometimes is okay if you're writing short poems, but to write lengthy hubs, you want to use more text capsules. This will give you more Google Adsense ad spaces opened and more ads added to your hub for more revenue opportunities. The prime real-estate for Google Adsense ads are along side your first text capsule and spaces will pop up in other areas, such as sometimes between the first and second text capsule or between the second and third capsule.
(b) Add more pictures to your hub, if possible. The picture you have at the top of your hub isn't advisable. It should be placed next to your secondary text capsule. Hence, yet another reason for using more than one text capsule.
(c) I would advise to even add things like Amazon links via Amazon capsules, news capsules(if warranted) and an RSS feed if you choose.
(d) As for learning more complex things of the Internet, I would first get very familiar with HubPages' platform. Play with different formats/layouts, use the "preview" option to show you were the ads will show up.
(e) If your text goes longer than 1500 words, then the keyword/tags can range up to 40 keywords/tags/phrases. The average length should be about 1000 words with 9-15 keywords/tags. Use that only as a basis, but see what works for you.
Hope that helped.

A very kind soul noticed a month ago that I need to learn how to break up my text with photos or something between the paragraphs when my text is long. She explained how to do it. I tried and couldn't grasp it. Then I misplaced or accidentally deleted her email -- so I haven't...

I just published my first hub. I don't have my Adsense approval yet but did put some Amazon books on there. Right now I am more concerned with the format and the keywords thing. I can see I have a lot to learn and so far, I don't really get it.Anyway, if there is anyone who would look it over I...

Edweirdo has a hub about doing this: http://hubpages.com/hub/Promote-Your-Ol … -RSS-Feedsbut there are at least two things wrong with that:The first is that the tag has to be odd or it risks duplicationThe second is that it risks duplication anyway, on purpose or accidentally, and could end...

One or two of my hubs have fallen victim to the "does not meet quality standards" empty bubble.In one case, I imagine it is because the hub falls under the "purely personal" category, better suited to a blog. That's fine. I can move it. (It's an older hub...

Once you've researched, drafted, edited, proofed... and before you've published your hub, you should think about a few things you could do to do it justice and add some extra appeal to it.1) Photo or Illustration? I like at LEAST one image. That way when it comes up in the hub search results it has...
