Hey Fellow Hubbers! Over the past couple of weeks I've published my first ten hubs and was wondering if I could get some feedback from you on things I am doing right and things that need to be improved...
I've tried to do a variety of article topics, but my overall goal is to work towards some money versus the writing exposure.
Any comments would be well appreciated and I look forward to hearing from you!
Ok, here goes. Feel free to take or leave what I have to say. First off, I'd change your profile picture. I know you didn't ask about it, but it looks a little like a mug shot. I'm sure there are better pictures you could use.
I only looked at the Leatherman hub, but the "him" is awkward just before the "his" in the first paragraph. I'd definitely specify what a Leatherman is in the first paragraph a little more than you do. I think you set up each type of Leatherman (men? ) with Amazon capsules well, and adding the video works. Personally, I think you include too many options in the Amazon capsule at the end of the article. Others may disagree, but I think you might be better served taking out a couple selections from each column. Overall, it's really a good hub, GAbaptist. It got me thinking about getting a new Leatherman!
Thanks shogan for taking the time to look and reply. I appreciate your input and I have implemented some changes.
You were right about the "him" in the first paragraph... When I read back over it, it did sound redundant. I have been reading the forums quite a bit and looking at other hubs and, like you said, there are differing opinions on how many affiliate ads to put on a hub. I guess I'll just have to test some both ways and see what works best.
Thanks for the compliment and I wish you continued success!
I looked at your cancer and webcam hubs, and I think you've done a great job! My only advice is to avoid putting a pic to the right of the first text capsule. That's the most prime piece of ad space on the page. You can insert an Amazon or eBay capsule there instead, or (my preference), just make the capsule long enough so that the default AdSense ad shows up there.
But seriously -- nice job!

Last night I went in an edited a capsule so that it would be full width, which is what HP wants everyone to do. The article I edited has been published and featured since 2012. When I went in and edited, however, the...

I've noticed over the past couple of days that the hubs I've published have begun with scores under 50. Is this a new feature that I am not aware of or an issue that needs to be looked at?Thank you!

One or two of my hubs have fallen victim to the "does not meet quality standards" empty bubble.In one case, I imagine it is because the hub falls under the "purely personal" category, better suited...

Just wanted to share this. Someone pinned or "flipped" one of my hubs on Flipboard, a magazine site. So I've had a ton of traffic all morning. I made my own magazine and the traffic magnified even more!...

Hi Hubbers,We've been engaging with some outside help on helping bring more traffic to HubPages. It's going to be an iterative process where we take recommendations, test them out on the site, and adjust. ...

After the longest stretch in memory without an update to the site (nearly 3 weeks), we've just deployed a new release. The biggest change is the addition of a map capsule, which as the name would suggest allows...
