      Ummm, can you give us one example and we can give you some thoughts on ways to
      'make it over' a bit?

      Don't worry, I won't hurt your feelings....well, at least not on purpose. smile

      Honestly, we want to use this forum to help you all create the best Hubs possible based upon our experience with what has worked and what doesn't. We're not perfect by any means, but we can definitely help you guys out.

      Think of us as this guy, but for your Hubs....only a little less annoying and a lot less crying.

          What's the point? You lost me and I was bored very quickly. And there is a far more comprehensive list here:

            In response...

            The point is to showcase google's country-level domains and the lack of other country-level domains.

            I realize there is mostly information and not much to "read," but as a reference, it could come in handy.

            The list that is "far more comprehensive" doesn't contain most of the country-level domains that I have in my hub and is just a list. They attempt to list ALL (which isn't even close to all) of google's domain names, while I have provided links to ALL of Google's country-level domains that are currently available. I've also put specific countries for which each link is intended. So how is the list more comprehensive? Just asking.

            Of course your response helps. big_smile Thanks for responding Mark.

              OK

              Well I am not sure how to be constructive with this.

              I don't really see the point in a hub that is a list of google country domains.

              Who would want to see a list like this? Perhaps if there was some purpose to it. I mean what was your reason for listing them? Could this list be of some use to some one?

              Perhaps you could give your reasoning for making this list......

    I think the title is a bit weak. "Google's Vast Domain" is not really searched on, even though it is descriptive.

    You might consider changing it to:

    Google International Sites
    Google Worldwide Sites
    or even
    Google Sites

  7. Ryan Hupfer profile image65
    Ryan Hupferposted 10 years ago

    Here are my thoughts on the Hub:

    1. The title definitely needs some work, meaning that it's not very search-friendly and most likely wouldn't be part of a phrase that someone would actually be searching for. I would have tried something like 'A list of Google's many domains' or 'Worldwide listing of Google search domains'.

    2. There isn't much actual interesting content in this Hub. It is made up completely of a few images and just long, long lists of linked Google domains. Also, the topic really isn't something that I would guess that people are searching for on a regular basis.

    My suggestion, if you are interested in this subject, would possibly to do a more in-depth look at the many domains of Google and how much traffic each one receives in comparison to one another. You could also look at growth trends within the domains and other potential things that would be a little more interesting to read about.

    A potential topic could be something like: 'The 20 highest trafficked Google domains from around the world'

    Does this help at all?

        Well, it's a start - I'm going to need help from all of you expert Hubbers out there, too. Hopefully you guys can chime in what you've learned along the way as well.

        The way I see it, the better that each of our Hubs are, the better that HubPages is as a whole so I'm going to help out as much as I possible can and I hope that you all do the same.

        ...please? smile

      Yeah, what Ryan said.  I know your point was to show that Google is everywhere, but I'd like to know why they even have all these domain names, like what is the purpose behind them?  For instance, I know that search results are locally focused, but is that countrywide or statewide or what?  Search engines aren't going to find you unless you put something in there besides a list.

      JMHO, though.  Thanks for being the first piece of steak on the skewer!

      Possibly smile I need to do some research now... tongue I agree that the title isn't very searchable... When I first published it, I actually wasn't sure what the potential benefits could be, though I had a few things in mind... and even more now! smile

      Your points are taken and I will begin research and my "Extreme Hub Makeover" shortly.

      Stay tuned! smile

      Thanks Ryan (and everyone else.) I appreciate all of your help! smile

      Marisa Wrightposted 10 years agoin reply to this

      My reaction too.  I know there are a few videos in there, but if I hadn't been asked to critique it, I would never have read that far down the Hub - I would just put it straight in the "useless information" basket! 

      So I would agree an opening paragraph or two would be helpful, and perhaps bounce one of the videos up there, too. 

      I don't agree with Ryan about having all your content above the comments capsule.   I often add the News capsule or an RSS feed below the comments capsule - because the only reason I'm adding them is to take advantage of the "freshness factor".  Because my Hubs aren't topical, the News capsule rarely adds real value to my content, so I'm quite happy if people don't get that far!

  9. Ryan Hupfer profile image65
    Ryan Hupferposted 10 years ago

    One other thing - from a Hub structure standpoint, I would never suggest adding any capsules underneath your comments capsule. I would always have the comments at the bottom.

    You never know when you will get a bunch of comments and then all of a sudden your links or other capsules are pushed way down there(like on this Hub).
