    Hey all,

    I am new to hubpages and I am very excited about it. I am trying to follow 30 days, 30 hubs challenge and have managed it so far.

    I would really appreciate to have your feedback/suggestions/improvements for me to learn techniques, to write better and get more page views.

    Below are links of my hubs, please provide your feedback on any of these [Or all of these, I would be really greatful.]

    Thank you very much in advance. I would definitely share my learning through this journey.

      I am new here, as well, so I can't provide as much insight.  But one comment I would give is to watch the excessive bolding.  I'm guessing that is for SEO, but it tends to make it slightly more choppy.  I may be in the minority on this one, though! 

      But it looks like you are at day 11 and still at 9 hubs - don't fall behind!!  smile  haha

      hey brentwilliams2, thanks a lot for leaving your footprints. I will take care of your inputs. smile

      Yeah, have started falling behind coz of other commitments. Also, I need to improve on the quality of content as suggested by fellow hubbers. So now I will try to write quality and not quantity. smile

      Thanks once again n merry christmas..!!

    Welcome to HP. Few places where you can improve:

    ~ choose less competitive high traffic keyword, do keyword research before writing your content, make a title that reflects you hub and can rank well for some good keywords. Read the hubcamp section of learning center for getting ideas to optimize your hubs http://learningcenter.hubpages.com/

    ~Write hubs that are of at least 500 words. Your hubs are small in size.

    ~don't place a photo beside the first text capsule. The photo push the bigger block of google ads down. The top right corner is the best place for ads to be clicked. So make the first text capsule 120-150 word long and add nothing above or beside it.

      Thanks a ton saleheen for these inputs, I will take care of it in future. Also, thanks for sharing the learning center link, just now went through keyword research article and it rocks..!!

      I do not have Adsense account as of now, this is the reason why I didn't care much about the google ads. sad

    I had a look at some because there are too many there for people to critique. All of them are far too short.

    Christmas gifts for women has too many white spaces. Either write more to fill them in, or add photos.

    Party ideas is on the short side, and did you really mean to promote drink driving in it? You might want to re-word that part of it.

    Christmas watches is way too short.

    Hate to have to ask, but did you copy Secret Santa from a book or something?
    All your others hubs have spelling errors and English that needs improving (yeah I know its your second language), but this one has perfect English all of a sudden. It's too short as well.

      Hey lzzyM, thanks for giving your honest opinions on my hubs. I will definitely try to improve on the length and layout of my hubs. Also, I will proofread them before publishing.

      I wrote Secret Santa long back and also organized it with my team. This is the reason why it has come out so well, though length is again short.

      Keep suggesting for improvements.

      Thanks and wish you merry christmas...!!

        And a Merry Christmas to you too Tumba!

        By the way, Google likes content - the more words the better (so long as they make sense lol) - so that is why you want your hubs to be a bit longer smile
