    I have 26 Hubs written, and am not making any sort of headway. I understand some of my Hubs are lacking grammar a little, but apart from that my Hubs are only getting on average between 100-150 views, while my Hub profit Has been about $42.00 from adsense and amazon.

    Please feel free to critique my Hubs and point me to making $50.00 a day. I am kinda born with general knowledge for SEO but everything else is just a little harder for me.

    You've been here 6 weeks. WOW! You're impatient.

    If you would like advice on your hubs, then I would suggest you post a few(3) links in the Extreme Hub Makeover Forum thread and get advice.

    Other than that....relax. wink

    I agree with Cagsil.
    I do believe you may not really be doing anything wrong.
    And the way I look at it, you are probably doing most of the things that needs to be done.

    But if you really need something that you might be doing wrong--it is that you are being impatient.
    These things take time as many of the HP oldtimers will tell you.

    Welcome to Hubpages!

    You got hit right at the same time as the rest of us. Instead of asking what is wrong, step back from your hub as your baby and look at it with a critical eye. I looked at only one "Celebrity Apprentice" and it is full of misspelled words and really has no value to me as a reader. You would be doing yourself a favor if you took a strong look at the hubs and fix the problems before they get flagged IMO.

      I am not rushing, or maybe a little yes. As for not knowing this will take time , I have acknowledged it will take time, but no sense on working on a site if I am not going to make any money. I am planning on a 5 year plan for all of my online work, and do not expect a massive out put of money for a couple years. All I was looking for was critique of which I have received
      I am asking can my grammar be better, and if so where. I know my spelling is atrocious  and I am making a big change on that. As for spelling I truly wish I knew what spelling mistakes where being made because I don't not know the proper there their and so on. Words that are closely spelled is my Achilles heel.

    rorymullen are you writing directly to the site in the text capsule? If so, then you need to change that immediately. Start writing in a word program that will capture misspelled words for you. One in the hub that I was speaking of is witch when it should be which. But again, I urge you to take a serious look at this particular topic and ask yourself is this really beneficial? A review of a show really needs to be beneficial to the reader for why they should be watching it and not just because you think there is friction amongst the players.

    Ask yourself why would I care about this before you start any hub. When you have a valid reason for that then that is the time to write the hub. I didn't look at any of the others because honestly my first inclination with this particular hub was to flag it and if that is the first impression that I got, what do you think others are going to think? Step back and really, really take a hard look at your hubs. It will not only benefit you, but the community at large as well.
