    Original content will go a long way towards getting indexed by Search Engines.

    Quality content will go a long way towards keeping your readers attention. Also the flow of information. Well written information. Add a few images to break up the big slabs of text.

    There are other ways to get the word out there... social bookmarking sites, adding your URL's into sigs. Mentioning your hub in a forum thread in response to someone elses question, provided it's on point and it doesn't happen very often is another way you can get the word out.

    Once you reach a measure of success and exposure you will find that people at discussions forums might mention your hub as an authority site. I haven't had this happen yet with my Hubs (to my knowledge) but I did notice in my stats at Squidoo that I was getting a lot of traffic from a forum I had never been to, and someone who I didn't know had linked to me. Which is quite a thrill.

    There are many ways to promote a site or a page, offline as well as online, but concentrating on writing something that is original, unique and quality is an excellent start.

    Darkside's on the money.  A few of your Hubs have several sub-headings.   Make a separate text capsule for each section, then you can add pictures between them, or an Amazon capsule - or you may find Adsense ads popping up there.  Also it's worth playing around to create interesting features such as a "did you know" type text box, or a capsule of interesting links.  Big chunks of unadorned text don't hold people's interest.

    Darkside has done a good Hub on Capsules, it would be worth your while to read it.

    Go to the Clark County Department of Labor Job-search and Placement Services and keep after them until they get you a job. You may qualify for training funds. See the link is below. When I was laid off form a job after 10 years, I went to my county office and did not leave without answers and help. I think that is the place to make yourself visible and persistently vocal.

    Go to the Human Services Office to help with rent, and food and even transportation out of the county if youhave to move to find work. They advertise plane fare, bus fare, and gaaoline help.The anount of help they can give depends on how much is left in their yearly allowance from the state and federal govt.

    Thankyou so much!  I don't know much about these kinds of places because I have always worked my whole life.  I will most definately check it out, wow, it feels like something just got lifted off of my shoulders, there's new hope.  Thanks again!
