Ok, here I go, but I am sure others will chime in also:

Image source hasn't to be a link for Wikipedia, a simple, non-linked text (cc) image creator is sufficient

A table of content would be great, for real readers and search engine bots alike

Use bullet point list for things like "A few common plants that attract hummingbirds:"

Use the space module to keep things tidy, like in between Plants that Attract Hummingbirds/ image and A few common plants that attract hummingbirds: (make that one page wide)

Be careful where you link to, Google frowns heavily on self-serving links.

Hope that helps, SY

PS Forgot to add, the content as such is great ;-)

Oh Sam.... Sam, Sam, Sam!

You have my head spinning. What is a space module?

#2- "Image source hasn't to be a link for Wikipedia, a simple, non-linked text (cc) image creator is sufficient"  HUH? What are you saying? How do I link back and give credit? I have always linked to my image sources if it required attribution. Please explain further.

 

Thanks! I will add the bullets now! Still trying to learn how to tidy everything up! Thank you so much for you help!

Space module is a narrow, set to 1px, horizontal bar you can insert in your articles to keep things tidy when you have two 1/2 pages modules that don't line up.

No, attribution doesn't have to be a link, simply a text attribution is enough - and prevents leaking link juice from your page, so, for example, it is perfectly ok to simple state "image (cc) name of image creator" you really don't have to link that to Wikipedia, they have already enough links. A linked attribution is only required when the image creator puts it in as an absolute requirement for using their images.

Does that clear things up for you? SY

Yes. I will go back in and put their Wiki user names as that is all they have listed. I think I will tidy up some of my Squidoo Lenses too!

Just intruding for a sec...what do you mean by this?  Are you saying because she linked to her Squidoo page on Hummingbirds that could be a problem with Google?   Many of us here cross-link to our other pages on similar topics.

BTW, nice page Stephanie Smile

Thanks Janet! I only linked to one lens in the content but did add two in the link list. Hmm, curious to see how this works becuase that was my sole purpose of coming to Wizzley. Try a new site, earn a few extra dollars and to cross reference my articles that were related.

 

Please tell us more!

Linking out to your own pages is perfectly OK, (as long as it is not to too many). Wizzley has strong authority so there is no problem there.

Where a problem could occur is where you use your own site to send hundreds of links out to the same pages with the same link anchor text.

BTW there is a special module called a space module on Wizzley. It looks like a grill logo that is on a cooker (oven, range - whatever you call it in the US) - or if you don't have those in the US, it looks like the mouth of 'Jaws' (the shark).
