    Very new so not sure how to place a link to a hub here?

      Just copy and paste the URL:

      Had a quick look at your hubs. Poetry and creative writing doesn't make money or have anything that should be changed or needs changing. I'll leave feedback on that to the creative people.

      As for your articles - use more capsules. I put about one paragraph in each text capsule (with a big one at the top for Adsense advert to appear).

      Add some photos and other media to make it interesting.

        Excellent thanks for the instructions on how to post a link here. Just to clarify the capsule you use a capsule for each paragraph in order to make space for more Ads to appear or to insert photos and other media as suggested? The big capsule is reserved for the top so I can place and Adsense advert in there or does that happen automatically?

          Here is an example of what I'd consider a great hub:

          There is a large block of text at the top allowing the Adsense advert to appear. Right above the table is another advert, meaning that there is definitely at least one capsule above that table (there are actually three above the table, two text capsules and one Amazon capsule).

          Having multiple capsules also allows you to add subheadings and mix and move around content to best suit the flow the reader might be looking for.

          There is plenty of content, such as the table, photos, Amazon capsules as well as links to Amazon.

          Note: The adsense large block will appear top right once you reach a certain amount of text in the first box with nothing beside it. If you see where the capsule ends before the next subheading in that hub example, you'll see that the author wrote just enough text to make it appear.

            Cool thanks so much for that. Whilst I would not make mine that busy I will take into account your valuable advice in having multiple capsules and some content.

            Thanks again

      As basaltbezel said, unfortunately creative writing and poetry don't attract a lot of readers (or income), so don't get your hopes up too much.  However, if you participate in the forums, and read and comment on other people's Hubs, you can become known in the community and enjoy their feedback and support.

      You might like to drop in on this thread and visit some poem Hubs by other Hubbers: … ost1117594

      Bear in mind that short Hubs will score badly, which means they're less likely to get noticed by other Hubbers.  You can "bulk out" a poem by adding a couple of photos, and perhaps a paragraph about what inspired the poem or its context.
