Hi, I just published my fourth hub and would be grateful for some feedback. I've got quite high scores at the moment, but only because I visited the pages many times during compilation to add and amend. 3 of my hubs are on a similar theme - travel advice - but the fourth is very different as it consists of a few fictional short stories. I intend to produce quality hubs on a wide variety of subjects, but I would like visits to my hubs to be as frequent as possible as quickly as possible (if that doesn't sound too ambitious!) As I say, any comments or advice would be appreciated.
You're off to a great start, and welcome to HubPages!
First off, never ever put any type of capsule next to your first text capsule, and make sure your first text capsule is long enough to accommodate the 300x250 rectangular ad that should appear there -- if you're here to make money, that is. It is probably the most valuable piece of advertising real estate on the page.
A disclaimer is fine, but it should go at the bottom of the hub. Instead of telling people in the disclaimer that you have other hubs, you should put in a link capsule or use the Groups function or otherwise link directly to the hubs.
I would stop using bold for the first paragraph -- it's pretty offputting and may send people packing -- no pun intended.
Not sure why you use "Greensleeves" at the beginning of your titles. Branding, perhaps? I'm afraid that someone coming across your hub in a search engine might look at that and click on a different URL. I think it's fine to brand your work, I just wouldn't necessarily do it in the title.
Many thanks for your prompt reply. I'll certainly take on board the advice, particularly about the first capsule and the links to other hubs in future hubpages. I may amend the ones I've already done in due course too. I must admit although I want to make money, I put the second capsule alongside the first just because I thought it looked nicer like that. It's a question of priorities I guess, and I'll have to think what mine are. I used Greensleeves in the title simply because I thought in time it would be more memorable as an identifying collective name for all my hubs, but you may be right about leaving it out of the title. I'll have to think about that one. Once again, thanks for the advice; it's appreciated.
lrohner you beat me lol
I'll add to what she says by saying you need to break your paragraphs up more. Online reading is different to reading from the pages of a book (or a Kinlde meh!), therefore you need smaller paragraphs.
Smaller parapraphs will lenghten your text boxes so you'll need to insert other media - photos, videos - maybe a table, something to add to the span of text.
I would shorten the URL down to the base keyword you're using - and look for more tags. Try and use ones that are relevant yet not too generic.
Otherwise welcome to Hubpages. You really are off to a wonderful start and I hope you get to writing a lot more. You certainly have the gift of the online gab and that's what HP like to see - and your readers
