Several times a day, I’ll run across a useful, interesting, well-written article that is shooting itself in the foot because of one or two small blunders. In an effort to rescue Hubs that are hindering their own success, we’ve decided to share an overview of common blunders that can be easily avoided. The small changes we outline in this week’s podcast (Common Blunders to Avoid) can make a big difference.
Here’s a summary of the top small tweaks you can apply to your Hubs that will vastly improve your readers’ experience
- Make sure your titles are search-friendly
- Don’t title Hubs with parts (e.g. Part 1, Part 2)
- Don’t assume that your readers are familiar with your previous work when referencing related articles
- Hyperlink to your references as you reference them (e.g. On our Facebook page, we share great Hubs and important updates, not On on our Facebook page, we share great Hubs and important updates. You can visit it by clicking here.)
- Avoid putting extensive lists links at the end of the Hub
- Make sure that the images you include in your Hub are not pixelated
- Break your text up (into different Text Capsules with sub headers, paragraphs, bullets, and lists)
- Read through each Hub at least once before publishing
