    This is my second Hub, which I think is an improvement on the first, but since I'm still so new at this, I would love any and all feedback.  Thank you!

    It appears to be short on content. I didn't check your word count.

    It also seems like you have avoided triggering the Google Primary Ad Block, which is usually at the top of the hub and considered prime real-estate for revenue generation.

    I would also suggest adding a couple of more keywords/tags.

    Hope that helps.

      Thanks for your feedback, Cagsil.  I'm not sure what the Google Primary Ad Block is.  How do I trigger it?

        You're welcome. smile

        To trigger the Google Ad Block at the top, is to put enough content in the first text capsule of the hub. You can use "preview", to gauge when the block is triggered.

        How many words and/or sentences are required is not exactly known. But, it is known that when there is enough content in the first text capsule, it will automatically trigger it. smile

          I'm a little confused.. you WANT the ad or you want to BLOCK the ad? I'm guessing you WANT the ad so you don't want to trigger an ad block right? I clicked on her hub and saw the ads across the top - that's good right?

            Hey R.S.,

            In order to get the ad to display at the top of the hub, you need to put in enough text in the first capsule, to trigger it, so it does display.

            If there isn't enough text in the first text capsule, then (programming of the hub software) will make an adjustment and display it next to the next available text capsule that has enough text in it, to trigger the ad.

            If there are none, then it will not display. wink

            I hope that helps.

          Thank you!  I'm going to tweak my first text capsule and see what happens.  smile

            Make sure you use a keyword in the heading of that text module and that you use a heading for all of your text modules and also place a keyword that you want to target in the captions of your pictures.  You only have a few places where you can really get the most out of your keywords and you don't want to leave that space empty or without a targeted keyword. 

            Don't worry too much about the tags, they are for internal use only and only good for internal searches. They are NOT keywords that search engines will pick up on, They are only keywords that people using the search function on hubpages will find useful.

            I would break this up to at least 3 text modules with the alternating picture modules.  Oh, give your picture modules a keyword rich heading as well as in the caption.  Good luck.
