    I am new to Hubpages and I absolutely love it here. I have always written poetry but am finding out that I need longer content and more searchable content to be successful here so I'm giving articles a shot. (Ugg) I've only written 2 and am looking for constructive criticism  and advice on the latest one, and of course, the all elusive question, how to drive more traffic to your hubs? Please help.

      I found this article to be great in length and information. Like I was told before that using keywords are inportant, because they are searchable through search engines such as Google or Bing. Make sure your title is original and you have a nice amount of pictures. I fail to add many pics to mines as well. Hope that helped.

    I really liked the hub.  Very good information.  The only thing I may have done differently is placed it under the Family section and drilled down from there.  You also may want to use it as an article and submit it to different articles with a link back to your hub.
