Constructive criticism welcomed, but please also give useful ways to correct my mistakes as well!
Just to let you know, the Extreme Hub Makeover forum thread you can post a couple of links to get critiquing for.
But, to ask people to search through your 13 hubs? Is a bit much and unfair. If you like post a couple of links you would like checked out and the community will more than likely be willing to help out.
Good luck going forward.
I guess I should have said something sooner, but neglected to say something about it, only because it hasn't happened in a long time.
It's bad forum decorum to post links with trackers in them. Not to mention, it throws off your statistics. However, I'll check out your links.
Both hubs look pretty good. I'm not sure if one of them will get flagged for over promotional or not.
One of your hubs has 3 links leading to blogspot.com domain and that's against HP rules. It could be unpublished.
You can only have 2 links to one domain and that includes RSS feeds and links for photos.
You could use more keywords/tags on both hubs. Other than that, they look fine. I'm sure other people will come along with other advice.
One thing that hurts is the pen name. "sexysnow" will cause readers to misinterpret your intentions here.
I agree with Xenonlit: If you want credibility, a profile name with the word “sexy” is probably not the best way to go. And if you want to be a “better hubber”, which implies being a respected member of this community, then I’d suggest you publish additional hubs that have nothing to do with driving traffic to your personal sites/business interests. Publish more recipes, maybe some tips for parents, homeowners, or whatever your other interests, without links to sites for which you have a commercial interest.
If however you really meant ‘how can I be more successful at driving traffic to my hubs, and therefore my other sites’, then there are plenty of hubbers who could advise you on that. Seems to me like it would be hard to rank for cellulite and online earning.
In my limited experience and understanding, it seems that every one of your hubs except your cookie recipe are at risk for being flagged as overly promotional. There is more to this issue than just the math of how many links to the same site. You can read more here:

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

Despite the fact that my traffic in that time span is up from 500 views a day to 5400 views a day. Wtf? Apparently hubber score is useless. Oh and my average hub score is up in that same span of time too.

So, I've had a hub unpublished due to HP claiming that it's overly promotional.The hub only has 2 outbound links ( which is the number of links we're allowed to put for the other external sites ) this is the only thing that I'm having in my hub.There is also NO amazon products or Ebay or...

I noticed that when I checked my backlinks all of the ones from hubpages were 'nofollow' links. Should this be the case? (I've written several articles and I'd hate not to be getting the most out of them.) Or do I need to change something in the HTML coding linking the anchor text to my website? If...

I just logged in and it shows every single one of my hubs highlighted in pink, to need review. The majority of these were well trafficked and featured hubs or editor's choice. Did something happen? I tried looking in the questions and forums and didn't see anything. I am not a former Squidoo person...
