    First of all, I want to say hi to everyone - Ive had a hubpages account for quite some time but just yesterday discovered the forum and all of its benefits.  I'm excited to be hear, and I would love to learn from those more experienced as well as help others!

    Okay, now on th the meat of the subject.

    One of two best hubs which seem to get the most traffic show on Google Analytics that the traffic is steadily rising, visitors stay on the page approximately 4:37 but the bounce rate is 94.01%.  Is that normal?  Any suggestions?


    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to the forums! If people find your hubs from the search engines and bounce off your page once they have found what they are looking for, that is not a bad thing. There are recent forum discussions about this issue, and the consensus seems to be that if you are after Adsense revenue, a high bounce rate is not necessarily something to worry about.

    Hi Carla!  Actually I don't do anything.  I have my twitter  account linked to my hub but thats about it.

      On the pet urine hub Faith the only thing I could fathom is that you include many cleaning tips that require only easy to buy normal every day products from the local grocery or department store.

      While these tips are helpful it makes the Hub fall into the category of "Free Advice",which not many people will buy something or be interested in buying something when there are many free choices.

      Keeping this in mind if you restructured the hub to begin by talking about ways to clean urine stains when the traditional methods won't do the trick (and remove all of the free advice type suggestions)  then you are introducing them to a buying mood,and those who read on are the people who have tried home remedies to cure this problem and are in need of a product made specifically for the job.

      A title change to include this buying mood would be a good thing to such as,"Pet Urine Stain Remover Products For When Traditional Method's Just Won't Get The Job Done". Or something along those lines that would have the reader ready to learn about products (not free advice) to remove their pet urine stains.

      Hope that helps,good luck!

        Again in the second hub about natural hair care,you give away the free list right off the bat of the easy to find items in the store that you use.

        A person will read that list and boom in all likelihood they are gone or just skim the page looking for any supporting reasons why these substances can help their hair.

        Start out by hyping the use of natural products for hair care over chemically enhanced products. Then lead into showcasing each of your list items separately.

        At the end you could tie it all in explaining how each of these products accentuate each other while used together (proving a need to have all of the products) . Then look for packages on Amazon that include many of these products to be bought together and tout it as a natural hair care kit. They can find these products at the store,but in a kit ( people love kits,lol).

        If there are no kits available to advertise off of Amazon then you need to include upscale not normally found brands in your ads. Then maybe mention why that brands version is better than the normal store brands.

        Wow I love Hub Makeover it get's my brain churning hard core,lol. Of course this may just all sound like babble to some,or I may be giving helpful info,who knows!

    The prime spot for google ads is to the right of the first paragraph - neither hub has such an ad placed there.

    The urine hub has a photo that could be moved down, opening that space for an ad.  The hair hub needs a little longer first paragraph for google to utilize.  Check if the length is long enough by "previewing" it - if the length is OK there will be a note to the effect that there will be an ad there.

    There is never a guarantee, of course, but that spot should nearly always be left open for google to use if the hub is intended to attract adsense clicks.
