I posted 3 instructional hubs regarding making purses and believe i have them categorized correctly. They are full of step by step instructions, drawings, beautiful photographs and web links. i am not getting any traffic, clicks or comments on them except one. so far. Can someone take a look and give me some feedback?? thanks
here are the links

I read the purses hub and note three lines of text and 8 pics. The search engines will never find three lines of text.You need to view the hubpages criteria for a good hub and use the guidelines of 500 -1500 words minimum.3 videos.10 links etc. Your pictures may get found by google images, so you may get some views that way.
Try and add a story to the pictures. Your best advice would be to read some hubs and get a gist of the layout format.
Hope this was helpful.
Not necessarily you need to add 3 videos.10 links in all hubs. But adding a caption the images helps to optimize your hubs.
I agree with Dale Nelson in the layout point. I think you could work better on it.
is a better layout in my eyes. just a thoughts.
I read the part 1. Looks good to me. I have some technical advice for you
~link the related hubs together using the link capsule and text linking.
~split the content in more text capsule to leave more space for Google Ads.
~your pool is placed under comment section, people won't find it so place is elsewhere.
~some amazon capsule can be used.
Personally, I would never carry a purse, and I think these look especially bad, I read the hubs only because you asked. I would never tell myself to read them.
The writing is fine, but really, who wants a purse made of old ties? And just how many people have a bunch of silk ties laying around waiting to be made into a purse?
You might increase your readers by linking and using an RSS feed. You have no embedded links on anchor words.
Some of your tags may not fit, like weight. You might be missing some keyword opportunities.
These are all mistakes I make myself all the time. You need to start to improve your awareness of this stuff. For me, it is slow going but it is worth the struggle.
Suggestions: spread the photos out, use more text hubs and title them, all your photos do not have to be giant sized, let readers look at your ads.
Don't put any of them in the top right space, save that for the ads.

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time because I've had multiple sales through amazon for that product, but I didn't...

If this is not the correct place to ask my questions, please let me know where to go on HubPages, or if I should send an email to the people running HubPages.A few months ago an expert hubber with lots of experience and success for a time offered free critiques of hubs in one of the forums. I asked...

I like to add in-text links when I'm talking about certain products as I not only think they are some of the most effective, but also some of the most helpful. What I don't understand is why there is a limit of 2 in-text amazon links whereas we can make a slew of Amazon links using the Amazon...

Last night I went in an edited a capsule so that it would be full width, which is what HP wants everyone to do. The article I edited has been published and featured since 2012. When I went in and edited, however, the editor that read it decided that it was no longer going to be featured. I was told...

As Cagsil noticed, we are in the process of testing out some changes to our text capsule editor. It's been turned on for a small number of specially selected trial users for a couple of days already, and now it's available to all. In order to switch, just change the settings on your...
