My very first hub has been published - How'd I do?

    Please offer critique for my first hub.  I can handle the criticism, and want to do what I can to improve my hub:

    http://glutenallergy.hubpages.com/hub/G … t-Are-They

    I don't want to build any more hubs until I know how I did on this on.

    Thank you.

    Pretty good for a first hub!

    The only problem I see is the topic. There are probably hundreds or thousands of larger websites which have articles about gluten allergies - why should Google send you traffic?

    Try writing on more "niche" topics. Ones that get less searches but also have less articles written about them, so you can rank higher in Google.

    "Try writing on more "niche" topics. Ones that get less searches but also have less articles written about them, so you can rank higher in Google."

    Oh my goodness, I never even considered this!  I will do that on the next hub I create.  Thank you for the advice.

      You're welcome. smile

      If you're here to earn money, the two most important things to consider are:

      1. The searcher - what will a person type into Google to find your hub?
      2.  The competition - how many other people are writing on the topic and can your hub outrank their content?

        Again, thank you!  I will think of these things in the future.  You have been very helpful smile
