I've spent an hour clicking through hubpages. I cannot find a list anywhere of what is required for a lens to be in compliance. Could someone please kindly share a link or list so that I can find out that info? Thank you so much!
When you go into edit mode, there is a list that appears at the top right hand side. Any problems will be highlighted in a box and the check-marks that you see below that will help you optimize your hub to the fullest. I am absolutely loving Hub pages and the ease of figuring out what is wrong with my transferred lenses. This is something that I had struggled with at Squidoo, to understand just what was wrong with a page. Thank you Hub pages!
Am I understanding correctly from what I have been reading that the only thing I need to do to make my pages compliant is to take care of the issues that show up after clicking on the skeleton head icon? (I have 12 lenses with either too many product listings or too many affiliate links.) Does that mean the rest of my pages are compliant?
Only Hubs with the red warnings need to be revised. However, with or without warnings, that doesn't mean that they will pass the QAP review. The warnings you are seeing are just from the automated evaluation. Your Hubs will still need to be read by humans in the QAP before you really know if they will be featured beyond the grace period. Also, the QAP will give your Hub a more accurate score under its system, which will determine how prominently your Hub is featured on this website.
No, that's just to warn you of affiliate links and promotional links. It helps you zero in on one problem that could get your hubs unpublished. (The nice thing is that when you edit those hubs, it should tell you which links are tripping the filters at the top of the workship).
The widget in the top right of the Hub workshop gives suggestions and tips, but some are suggestions rather than requirements. Here's what you want:
Hubpages FAQ. Jump to the "Publishing Rules and Policies" section for official rules.
Also, in the Learning Center, I suggest you read up on Hubpages Publishing Standards and Featured Hubs / the Quality Assessment Process.
At that point you should know more than we ever knew about the filters / rules on Squidoo.
ETA: drat, logged in with the wrong screen again, sorry. This is Greekgeek.
Why do you keep doing that when you know it violates the forum rules?
"Be honest about your identity. While we don't prohibit having more than one HubPages account, we ask that you stick to a single persona in the Forums."
Surely the mods are aware that accidents will happen as many of the more frequent HP posters also have Squidoo accounts that now need attending to after the migration. She is not breaking the spirit of the rule, which is to curb sockpuppetry. And she did say sorry!
I only have one account here but I can see how it would be very easy to forget which account you're logged into.
I don't think it's a big deal anyway. That rule was created to prevent people creating false conflict, by posting as two different accounts in the same thread. I see lots of people who switch between accounts on the forums, but they stick with one ID for the duration of a thread, and that doesn't seem to cause any problems.
The skulls only provide feedback on things that can be determined automatically with software. Those would certainly be the first thing that you should fix. But, there are other rules that require human judgement, and that are enforced by moderators. This is a good place to start:
Or, if you don't have time to read through everything, these are three of the most common problem that imported lenses have:
For newly published Hubs, Quality Assessment Process (QAP) comes into play. That might be worth learning about as well.
Pretty much. Being "compliant" means you're not breaking any rules. The next hurdle - which you won't face unless you start editing Hubs - is whether they're good enough to pass QAP (the Quality Assessment Process). That's a human review which looks at quality measures as well as compliance, and ultimately your Hubs will need to pass that test as well.

The purpose of this post is NOT to moan and groan, but rather to better understand it, by sharing your insight and experiences. Obviously we now have to work using its parameters. Stayin' Alive Ha Ha Ha

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.
