    Welcome to Hubpages! smile

    I've reviewed the hub you wrote. I'm not going to reference your writing, but the format of your hub. You have apparently created the entire hub's text inside one text capsule.

    It would be better to use separate text capsules. I do so, because each text capsule is already bold format to begin with, so your bold captions would be in place. Using more text capsules also allow for more ad spaces for higher revenue.

    Add more pictures, something to share with your reader.

    Keywords/tags, which you have on the right side- should be 9-15 keywords/tags - keywords/tags are things people type into search engines to find your Hub. The 9-15 is the amount for an article up to 1500 words. I've seen it said 20 would be the max, before it is flagged for excessive tagging. And, any article over 1500 words can use up to 40 keywords/tags for the hub.

    Other than that- good job on your first hub. It has good length.

    Hope that helps. wink

      Cags hit the nail on the head. Do exactly what he said.

      Remember that keywords are VERY VERY important. If you spend 2 extra minutes on keyword research it could be the difference between 1 and 1000 views.

      If you are unfamiliar with keywords, I would suggest learning about them. It is very simple and there are great methods that can help you. Many great hubbers have wrote hubs on them, so they are very easy to find.

      Good luck!

        I too agree with Cagsil. Your Hub's topic is not exactly my cup of tea but I did notice the format. A good first impression is also very important besides content. Add some relevant pictures, add a video if possible. Adding a video to your Hub keeps people longer, which is good for your Hub's rating.

        You have good writing skills. Keep up the good work, smile

    thank you so much for the guidance, I will definitely keep in view all the suggestions for my next hub and also try to alter the present one. Actually I have all sorts of problems when I try to edit a hub. The editor does not exactly load so I eventually decided to use my weak html writing skills to at least bold the headlines. Keyword research is something I need to pay attention to. thanks again.

      You might try a different browser if you are having trouble editing.  FireFox works well with HP, as does Chrome.  IE very often does not.

      I downloaded FF some time ago just to work on HP, and found I like it enough that, except for reading email it is all I use now.

        I love Google Chrome. Only one I use, especially when I make hubs.

    that's good advice. Should try Google Chrome.
