    Fumbled my way through getting three hubs online.  Now I'd like some suggestions as to how I could improve them. 

    I don't have RSS installed yet because I'm not sure what URL I'm supposed to send it to.?

    I also tried the Suggest Links and found it highlighting all the wrong things.  How would I make it highlight all the right things.

    Where do I insert keywords?

    Thanks for answering. 

    I'm just out of the hospital and unable to work a job.  So since my job way our gravy to bank, I thought I'd start working on hubpages to get something up and running.  Not looking for instant miracles.  But I'd like to build a strong foundation before I continue so that I don't have to go back to each one and fix them.

    Appreciate your input

      That alot of questions, i'll give it a go big_smile

      1. RRS Feeds are simple once you get the hang of them. Try to follow these instructions and they should work for your hubs:

      On your profile page click the tab above your hubs which you would like to generate a feed for, for example "latest, hot or best." Then click tab labeled "more", which opens on a new page. Copy all the text in this web page address line, for example cgarwriter yours would be "" for your latest hubs. Now in your hub editing section insert an rss feed capsule, paste this text into the line where it asks for the rss and insert the characters ?rss behind it. For example yours, cgarwriter, would be "". Now all you have to do is select how many hubs you want listed in your rss feed and if you want descriptions in the feed.

      2. Highlight the text in you hub that you want suggestion links after you click on the suggestion links tool. It will give you a little warning that you cannot highlight more than 6 words or something to that effect, but if you try it again by highlighting your own selection of text it seems to work.

      3. Keywords are just words that google picks up on from search engine optimization or search engine words that people regularly use to search. Therefore any word is a keyword. If for example you are writing about monkeys and you do an Google Adwords search for monkeys then it might show you keywords like: King Kong, spider monkeys, cage etc Then in your bulk of your text ensure you those words. You could say, for example, King Kong was a famous movie monkey who would not be kept in a cage. You then have just inserted King Kong and cage as key words into your text. It is important that your text make sense and text is not jam packed with them and you dont over repeat keywords.

      Good luck, hope you are haveing fun learning about hubpages. Excuse my spelling I wrote this a million miles an hour. Thanks, Ginger.

      Your keywords/phrases are Reiki and defining reiki.  What you should be doing is putting this at the beginning of your article:

      'In this article we shall be defining reiki.  What do me mean by this?  Well, reiki ..blah blah'

      You will be optimizing your hub for the metadescription here.

      Never really like having pictures positioned in the areas that you have, there are reasons why - check out hubs on on page optimization.

      Again, I am harping on about on page optimization!  Sorry, but it is sooo important!

      Keywords - sprinkle 'defining reiki', 'reiki definition', 'why reiki'  and various different forms of the term 'reiki' throughout your hub.  Place these terms in the title capsules.

      By and large, I think your content is quality... keep up the good work!

      Oh... and keep referring to:

    Take the first photo and move it down.  Do not put anything in that space, this is known to be prime ad space.  It is the most likely place to get a click.   You want clicks.

    Another way to get an rss feed is to click on Subscribe to cgarwriter's RSS feed.   This will take you to your RSS page.   Copy the URL and place it in your RSS capsule.

    This is the way to do it if you are really dumb like me.   It is simple and works.   It took me about 4 months to understand it.  It is important, but it will do you no harm.  Your RSS feed is:    If you are daring, try changing the latest to best or hot.

    I would add that Keywords that you want to use, that have potential, and have a good chance should be inserted into the title.   Also, consider using them as tags.

    I have no idea what this sentence means:
    It tak which can be of mind, body or spirit

    The hub is not very descriptive or enlightening.   I read it twice and still I scratch my head.  I have no idea what you are talking about.   

    I think I finally got the idea, but you could easily add more text.  A really good definition is needed, the way it is presented, it seems like hocus pocus.
