I'm new and have published my very first hub:
Could you experts and experienced people take a look at it and let me know what I'm doing right or wrong?
I'm not even sure that I've set up all the advertising widgets correctly, so let me know especially if that needs improvement.
Thanks in advance.
Here's the link: hubpages.com/hub/Dating-Tips-How-to-Meet-Compatible-People
I'm not sure why the original was snipped since it leads to a hub.
It was snipped because on this site you are specifically prohibited from starting forum threads to promote your own Hubs.
Which you would know, if you had read the things labelled "Read Before Posting".
Hubbers don't tend to click ads anyway, so you are better off posting that link in any other forum on the internet, other than this one!
It's very natural to seek out reviews of our work. But, for better or worse, Hub Pages does not encourage posting of links to Hubs. They're concerned about folks "spamming" the forums with links, not because they want an honest critique, but to boost their scores.
So, when you write a reply, there's a box at the top of the page with instructions on it, and this phrase is underlined: "Do not start threads for the sole purpose of promotion or posting links." The box also gives a link to the Hub Pages FAQ.
My guess is, that's why your link got snipped.
That said, some Hubbers have suggested a Forum topic be opened up just for reviewing Hubs. If Hub Pages could provide that -- without inviting massive spam abuse -- it would be most cool. (But frankly, I don't know if that's possible.)
Hope this helps.

Sorry Jennifer, that I don't read things as well as I should. As I said, I'm new. But that doesn't seem to make a difference to the people lecturing the newbies here.
Which is why, Marian, I appreciate your gentler approach to pointing out my flaws.
Having said that, it doesn't look like I'm smart enough to be doing hubs. So I've deleted my single hub and am leaving permanently.
If the forum administrators could delete my forum posts so they don't annoy any more expert hubbers, I'd appreciate it.
This is not the end for you bro,if you really want to boost your traffic and backlink! register here and see how your traffic and backlink increase and perhaps your article or blog will be in the front page without having asking others to look for your blog or whatsoever this is the link <snipped link>... you will pray for me after you register
If you're still there ...
Very sorry to hear that you're leaving. You are not the first new person to make missteps ... I think we all have. It's never easy to be new.
I didn't mean to offend anyone. Maybe I need to use more smilies in my posts.
I wasn't intending to be rude. Sorry to anyone who felt I was.
Jennifer, I think that your comments were appropriate, and not heavy handed at all.
And Aurelio, it would be sad if you decided to leave hub pages because of this incident.
And memo to Agrovertic:
Wot Mark Said.
Hehehehehe sorry guys and i will ensure it wont happen again,MOD snipped it hehehehe
Thanks Jennifer for your apology and to everyone else for their care and concern.
I'm sorry for turning a molehill of well-intentioned advice into a mountain of misunderstanding. (And am still hoping the admins can delete my forum post for being much ado about nothing.)
What did you expect from a newbie
If you want to read my full act of contrition, check out hubpages.com/forum/topic/6676?page=2.
Otherwise, I'm back and will be restoring my hub soon.
Thanks for your patience.

I'm fairy new to Hub Pages, but one of the things I really enjoy is reading through the Hub Hopper - you never know what topic is going to pop out at you OR how good or bad the next article will be, ha! But some of the really good ones could be even better with some good writer-to-writer feedback....

In reading the forum post from two years ago when all Hub URLs were changed to Subdomains, many people reported that copied Hubs began to outrank theirs when the change was made. I think this might happen again and we have five forum threads going right now about copied content. Be sure to do...
