I'm really sleep deprived but I'm really not sure if the hub flows together okay. Does it make sense or is it even interesting to anyone? Any comments at all please. Or if you just want to review any of my hubs I would be so grateful
I haven't been here for even a week so I'm not a good judge but I've been told that you should have about 15 tags. You can look up keywords with Google's Keyword tool.
I'm still learning about the keyword stuff. It's just not seeming to click with me. But I am grateful by your comment. Thanks! Comments always help.
Keywords are pretty easy once you get the hang of it. You have to ask yourself 'what would someone looking for my content type into the search box?' In your case it would be things like:
the elder scrolls v skyrim
the elder scrolls v
elder scrolls 5 release date
new elder scrolls
elder scroll v
elder scrolls xbox
elder scrolls ps3
elder scrolls trailer
I got these in less than a minute using your title and the google keyword tool. Also using misspellings can get you a lot of hits. Like:
I'm sure there are a ton of good keyword hubs on here if you want to learn more. Hope this helps!
I couldn't figure out what your hub was about in 30 seconds of looking for descriptive keywords.
This is a failure.
Sullen, I'm sorry if it was clear what it was about. The hub is about a new video game coming out next year called the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. A lot of people have been waiting for the game to be released for at least 2 years and so I did a hub based on the little information I had as well as some educated guesses I made from what the previous games were.
What exactly was unclear about it?
I can always elaborate on criticism, but I can elaborate without being extravagant -- when asked nicely.
Your title is not meaningful to me. Your first paragraph is about the executive director of "Bethesda", a city in Maryland. Elder scrolls sounds like something about old people and parchments. The first paragraph is virtually unintelligible as well.
What goes through my mind after reading the title and first paragraph:
What is Bethesda? What is "the" game? What is MMO?
What goes through my head after thinking it over:
Bethesda is probably not a city, because cities don't have executive directors.
I'm not stupid so I can see that "the" is probably a reference to the title; so, there's a game of some sort in the title.
What kind of game? A real life game or a video game? What is MMO?
My parting thoughts:
This is confusing enough to justify not reading the rest. It is confusing in part because the author used "revealing", which is both grammatically incorrect and; consequently, it is unclear whether revealing is an act, a preview, an expose, or something else. The wording of the paragraph is not idiomatic (e.g. too short announcement). This is probably a video game on some console, based on what I know about the archaic titles of some popular games.
My updated assessment:
This hub must be interesting to those who want to know about the game.
Those people are likely to know, full well, what the hub is about from the beginning.
Hence, it is largely irrelevant that the hub is confusing to readers who aren't fans
The title of my hub is the title of the video game. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which my hub is about. Bethesda is a game studio that has developed games like Oblivion or Morrowind. After that it should be clear what "the" game is.
I wrote the hub for people who would be actually looking the game up. If someone isn't researching The Elder Scrolls, I doubt they will ever read my hub at all.
Thank you for attempting to read my "confusing" hub.
I don't really see anything wrong with it's flow.
However, I would suggest taking the picture you have at the bottom and moving it up along side of the text capsule above it.
You have enough text in that capsule to make two separate capsules. You could put just enough text into another capsule, so as to put your Amazon capsule next to it.
I hope I explained that easily enough.
I agree with Cagsil, I try and split long blocks of text with the photos
Thanks Cagsil, I divided the long block of text up. It's always awesome to have your advice.
I followed Richie's suggestion to split the text better with the photos.
I appreciate all the quick advice. I want to improve this hub the best I can so it has time to get noticed by google before the further game announcements that start in January. I'll be adding more photos, videos and text revisions as the announcements comes.
Split the hub in at least two text capsules. Don't put the pics or link beside or above the first capsule. It will let Google put their biggest block of ads on top of your hub.
Amazon placement is alright. But I don't like the pics beside it. You can use three more product there or the first pics and he link capsule beside it. [just a thought]
Push the video at the bottom of your hub.
the would look like as following:
Ads Ads Ads Ads
Thanks for the template example. I get caught up in making the hub sound right and I tinker with the placement forever. I copied it for further reference.
don't copy it, try different layout in different hubs just keeping the bigger block of ads on top.
you can always check how the layout is going to be by hitting preview when in edit mood.

I recently filled in a survey on how to improve HubPages but forgot to mention a very important design issue which has been bothering me for a long time.When a text capsule is very long, I like to turn it into 2 adjacent capsules so it works like 2 columns. Easier to read, right? But every time I...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

I give! I've searched the first 3 or 4 pages of "Getting Help" Forum and I've read the entire Link's Capsule section in the Learning Center (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/using-hubtool). That Hub, by the way, has a large number of Quick Links in it. How do you create a list of topics...

I'm trying to understand RSS feeds. I think the capsule is a reader that aggreates feeds from other websites, but I'm not sure

This has been asked before but I would like to ask again. If someone wants to add a list of related hub links to their hubs, it is really, really time consuming, as you have to open every hub, get the link, and then copy and paste it. If we could have something similar to the way you categorize...

The new Text Capsule has been well received and we believe we've fixed all outstanding bugs (thank you, by the way, for those who gave us feedback).We'd like to retire the old Text Capsule in the coming weeks, so please let us know if there are any outstanding bugs that we should address before...
