My intention was to be a guide....not an advertisment...can I post a link here for some make over help?
Well, I looked at this one:
You have far too many links to other hubs. The text is broken up badly, you should make sure one sentence appears on the same line.
You should put the hub into more than one text capsule and intersperse the ads through your hub. One picture of a kayak would be a good idea, I'm sure you can find at least one good copyright free picture.
I would also have a longer introduction and a concluding paragraph.
Thanks you, Obviously I don't how to use the capsules very well, but I will do as you said. I didn't know about using the text capsules-splitting up the text like that, It's like I'm cramming for an exam I have been learning how to use Adwords keywords and phrases tool. And It will take me some time to learn how to put together a decent page also. I appreciate the good input and advice, thanks again!
Here is an example of a good, high quality Hub: http://hubpages.com/hub/bean
As you can see, an introductory paragraph allows the first Adsense capsule to appear. There is one suitable photo and a short and well considered list of Amazon items. Each text capsule is headed up with a title, so basically each capsule is one topic. Simple, easy on the eye and contains no links (usually a maximum of 1-2 links to relevant sites will be enough for your reader.)

I've been submitting hubs on HP to niche sites, and find the turn around time to be longer than a week in some cases. And it's usually a petty thing, not something listed in the rules. I had one hub held up two weeks for a colon I didn't put in. I ended up doing it, but felt it was linguistically...

I got a poorly worded to the point of being offensive email from the team about one of my hubs that got unpublished. I replied with a request for clarification. Almost 24 hours passed since. I am wondering, how long I have to wait for the response?Now, I keep quiet about one of my workers waiting...

We've been talking about leading photos in the forums and while it's not just about having a leading photo, it's about having a really great leading photo. We recommend this because we see these photos get shared a disproportionately number of times higher.The quote of the day "People...

I've been looking at the Latest Hubbers and doing a lot of HubHopping lately and noticed a pattern. Based upon some of what I have seen I am making some suggestions. I'm sure HubPages staff and moderators see all sorts of patterns to spam and poorer quality Hubs.Here's some suggestions...
