Well, as much as I enjoy writing articles, I would also like to earn a tidy side income and so far I'm not doing to well. I do get hits from google but people seem to bounce right out without clicking around too much. Anyway, this is my latest hub. Please tell how you think it (and maybe some of my other hubs) could be made more lucrative.
Many of your other hubs are nicely arranged but I don't like the lay out of this hub. Not at all.
You better work with the amazon capsules a bit more and try different layouts and see which look better.
hmmm, you're right about the misspelling WryLit - how embarrassing. I've fixed that and also changed around the layout a bit.
I actually decided to make a hub out of this because people were landing on my Christmas in Germany hub with those december 6th and nikolaustag keywords.
Anyway, please take another look and let me know if it's any better.
Here's some advice from me - who yesterday made a complete fool of myself by wondering why Adsense was not delivering product placement based on keywords like democracy and politics.
I looked at your hub. It's a nice looking hub. Compares well to a lot of the sales hubs, which you will notice if you do some hub hopping.
You mentioned Google hits and people not clicking through. I have this too, none of them click. But a good click through rate is 3 or 4% I think (experts will tell you) - therefore you need hundreds / thousands of hits.
I also, although only briefly (hey I'm not getting paid for this!), looked at your product placement and selection. It seems to me that people using your keyword might be the people who really like traditional Xmas stuff, possibly German Xmas related merchandise?
So, for example, the mobile phone cover seemed a pointless advert. Personally, I think less, better targeted adverts is good - but I KNOW ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about sales hubs.
Anyway, good luck figuring it all out.

There have been several theories about what content Google is penalising and rewarding in the search results but at the moment it does seem a bit random (from my end). Let's compare notes and hopefully we can see some...

I got this hub up to 91 rating. I'm trying to get traffic from Google so that people see it. I had a success on Reddit which brought a lot of traffic to it. I was able to get 20 up votes on it. ...

I'm sure all of us have felt time-crunched while working on our websites, articles and HubPages. If you have a limited amount of time, what do you think will make your site more valuable in the eyes of Google (i.e....

Along with the Google effect lately I've seen a lot of forum posts about spam, and every time I hub hop it is obvious that there is a lot submitted here of both spam and simply substandard hubs.I would suggest that the...

Prompted by a comment in another thread, I thought it would be useful to perhaps slightly change the way that we commonly think about changes to hub scores, hubber scores and the like. Rather than see them as a...
