I am a newbie and I am looking for some feed back, especially from hubbers who have been here awhile. Hope I'm on the right track.
Here is my very first hub ever
Not a bad Hub, but I don't really believe you will sell very much oil or other products found easily at the local gas station or WalMart. Try to advertise items people won't mind waiting a few days for.
You'll soon get the knack of what does or doesn't sell on your Hubs. Welcome to HP!
Thank you for the feedback. Any specific product suggestions?
I try to offer something related to the Hub but will catch the eye as being unusual or new to get the visitors to enter "The Amazon Zone." Then what ever they buy gets you the bucks. Just one of the methods which seems to work okay for me. Good luck!
Variety writer, welcome to hubpages! That is a great first hub. You definitely seem like you are on your way. Ocean
I think its a very well thought out hub - seems to have everything needed - Nice keep at it
First off - welcome to Hubpages
Second - great first hub, top effort, more!
Last - lose the first picture - kill it or insert it next to the text capsule that is free of product links. That way the ad block that's below the halfway mark will float up and to right of the first text block - which is exactly where it needs to be.
You look like you've either read the instruction manual or have an idea of what you're doing
Picture gone. Thank you for the feedback. I really appreciate it!
Yes, I read some instructions I have also been writing for over a year now... getting much better at it.
<runs off to make a 2nd hub page>
I think the amazon capsule should be placed in the middle of the hub.
Don't be disappointed if your hubs do not get the feedback you had hoped for. I have been on here a couple of weeks, and really wanted feedback to hubs I had put a lot of effort into, and was disappointed when it was not forthcoming. Now, I write for the enjoyment of it and realise that if the hubs do not connect with people, this does not make them worthless. Simply that not everyone is interested in the same things. So enjoy your writing for its own sake.
Muldanian I'm sorry if you missed out on constructive feedback. I must have missed you - sometimes we do
If you want any direction, ask me directly and I'll give it. And welcome to hubpages
Hmmmmm lol ok - now go back (again!) and write another 100 words or so in the top text capsule - then create three small paragraphs from the text. You need the extra words to create enough space for the ad block to float next to it.
Didn't note how many words were there in the first place :
You notice everything, your Eliteness! Warts and all!
She eliminated that block in the second hub completely. lol
Thank you everyone for the feedback.
I just published my second page... and I think Im starting to get the hang of it.
Great hubs! Keep it up - you'll get ad revenue in no time (I'm new to this game and I've gathered enough Adsense for a cup of coffee, so earning money is possible)!
Haven't applied for Adsense yet. Afraid of rejection. I read so much about many people being denied. I think I will wait a few months and build 100 hubs first. Thanks for the feedback.
I applied and was accepted right away, though I am in the United States (people from Asia often have to wait a minimum of six months prior to getting approved for an adsense account). I hope you get to your 100 hub goal quickly, and good luck with hubpages!
For future reference, all posts asking for people to help with criticism of hubs should be posted in the Extreme Hub Makeover forum. Otherwise they will delete your links.
By the way, they both look good to me. Maybe adding a video showing someone brushing a dogs teeth would add to it. You can always find a video that fits your hub at YouTube I find

I've been doing a lot of thinking about the types of services we offer Hubbers and how to help Hubbers improve.A few services that have been suggested- grammar and spell checking- suggesting edits- providing images/media upon request- formatting help (breaking hubs into multiple text capsules,...

I know this forum gets a lot of these posts, but I'm new here and bewildered regarding the rather quiet reception my first hubs have garnered. Oh, I'm not surprised at the lack of search engine traffic, but I was hoping to get some sort of feedback on what I'm doing right or wrong.Some of my...

Would any of you suggest 'reporting' an obvious newbie who has obviously not read anything of the rules and protocols here, whose profile includes no bio and indicates having joined but 2 hours prior, and whose portfolio includes but a single, very short and very poorly written hub?I'm not even...

As many of you know, HP has recently provided us with a number of new ways to record feedback to the writers of hubs. In addition to just making ordinary comments, you can now add reinforcing clicks by simply checking the words "Useful", " Funny", "...
