    Hi, This is one of my hubs that gets the most traffic.  Are there any suggestions on how to make it a little better.  Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Hey Jill

    #1 - add more content, at least 10%.
    #2 - Tags - add more. shark vacuum, shark navigator vacuum, shark navigator vacuum cleaner, shark navigator v dyson, shark vacuum review, shark vac, shark navigator upright vacuum, shark navigator vacuum reviews, shark navigator best price,
    3# - Make better use of the headers.
    #4 - Always make use of the summary tool - don't leave it up to google to pull a summary from the first few lines of text: Of the many shark navigator reviews - this one reviews the shark navigator vacuum in full. is better.
    #5 - alter the first text box - split it in two, so as to float an ad box to the upper right of the text.
    #6 You are sat on page two - do some back-linking to get it at least onto page one. Check Mark Knowles, he has some info relating to how to do it.

    Good luck smile

      Could you please verify what you mean by splitting first box into two, and headers?  I am not exactly sure how to do that.
      Thank you for the advice.

    Something else you could try would be to add an RSS feed capsule as that adds fresh content to older hubs and google likes new content. If there is a relevant video to your product/hub you can also include that.

    I added more text, a video, tags, and summary.  Not sure how to back link....

      Ok -didn't get back online so missed your second query.

      Tags - lose any that are too general, you're targeting 'shark navigator: shark, pets, lightweight, suction, pet hair, furniture, cleaning, opinions, dirt container, etc etc.

      Text box - you have now inserted a side-by-side text box at the top of your hub. This has pushed the main ad-block down. It needs to be in the upper right of the page. I wrote a hub on how to do what I'm getting at:
      HubPages Blueprint

      Good luck - oh and you'll find some back linking stuff on the hub, and which hubbers to turn to (reading wise) for anything related to writing on Hubpages/online smile

        Ok, I moved the text boxes around which moved the ad-block up.  Also, I deleted the tags that were too general.  Thank you for pointing these things out, I didn't realize how many extra tags I have been using that are not neccessary.  Now I just have to work on backlinks.  Thank you again smile

          Awesome - looking much better. Now --- more work smile

          Move the video down to the base of the hub (it will fit). Where you have the text box titled: Main Vacuum Features, swap it for the Amazon capsule.

          If you can find related products, insert another Amazon capsule in place of the one you need to move up. Then change your title - something like: Shark Navigator Review - Navigator Upright Vucuum V Dyson Vac.

          The Main Vacuum Features text box either lose it or rewrite it a bit differently, change the header to Main Shark Navigator Features and insert another Amazon product box - maybe a Dyson vac in it?

            I moved the video down but should it look that big?  Also I made the other changes.

    Looking for some feedback on my work and how to increase my traffic and followers. I've been on here a while but I'm still not doing as well as the average writer on here. The people who read my work seem to like it but its just a case of getting more people to take an interest. How do I get noticed? Thanks.
