    Your fist hub looks good. The content is also interesting. The photo is nice but you may move it to left side, it will helps the present of layout better. You choose the competitive topic, it may hard to get traffic unless you invest sometime to build huge back links to it.
    Anyway, this is good for starting, try to make another one and get traffic to your hubs.
    Good luck.

    Welcome to HubPages, and nice job on your first hub. You've got a lot of good, well-written information.

    You should move that first picture down to at least the second text capsule, and make sure your first text capsule is long enough to accommodate a large, rectangular ad that will show up.

    I would take the first list of Amazon products and make it right flush to one of the text capsules.

    Also, don't be afraid to use several text capsules with different section titles or headings. It helps to break up the text.

    Try to have at least 10 to 15 tags. Make some fairly general (as you have), but also put a few more specialized tags in there.

    And then go find some hubs by SunForged or Darkside and see what they have to say about keyword research. smile

    The lay out is a bit of plain and can't attract enough traffic. I have no hub to publish yet, you did a better job than me!

    Thanks, everyone for your advice. I have made some changes to them. I have no idea what is good traffic. I am getting 6-12 hits/views per day on the three. I have written so far one in the past three days. Just curious what kind of numbers I should be looking for.

    Thanks!
