I'd like feedback on my Hub: All about Floor Lamps

    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub All about Floor Lamps. What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      1. You really need to narrow down your topic.  One short article cannot possibly cover "all" about floor lamps. When your title is searched on Google, the sites in the search results actually show varieties of lamps for sale: http://goo.gl/69mlTH

      Do some keyword research using Google keyword planner and find a better focus for your article, something much more specific.

      2.  Get someone to help you with your English. (For example, the first sentence of your article is actually about five sentences, all run together. )

      3.  Study this chart about how Hubs are evaluated: http://hubpages.com/help/hub_hop_table#informational

      4.  Read some Hubs with high quality scores: http://hubpages.com/hubs/best/

      5.  You need to find photos that you can legally use.  You can't just search on Google and use anything you find. See this: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/legal-image-use

      6.  Study the information here: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/contents

      It will take some practice to learn how to write well on HubPages. You might have better success writing about things you know well, such as tourist attractions in your country, favorite recipes in your culture, wildlife in your area, etc.

          I'm sorry you didn't think my answer was helpful.  However, if your Hub does not receive traffic from search engines, it will become unfeatured.  Right now, I don't think your Hub will receive traffic from search engines for the reasons I gave above.   So, bookmark my answer because you might want the information in the future.

            I did bookmark the page and will contact you if i needed opinion if you are interested to help, but i hope next time that you be more specific for what i need then provide the advice for the future articles.

      Writer Fox gave you excellent advice. There are quite a few grammatical errors in your Hub, starting with the first paragraph. There are also quite a few run-on sentences, the absence of capital letters where they should be, and words capitalized that should not be - throughout the entire Hub.

      You expanded a lot on the things one should consider, when purchasing a floor lamp, but the many of the sentences are simply not grammatically correct.

      For example - the first sentence in your fourth paragraph, under the subtitle "When to Use a Floor Lamp", should start with a capital letter. That sentence could be phrased differently, so the reader understands what you are trying to convey.

      I am just pointing out one of the various things that will help your Hub. There are many articles online, about floor lamps, so you are facing quite a bit of competition.

      If you want your article to be considered a "stellar" one, the grammatical elements have to be accurate.

      Take a look at some other articles about floor lamps that are online; not on Hub Pages, and you will see what I mean.

        Your comment was the most helpful and i appreciate it, regarding Writer Fox his comment was helpful as for writing articles overall he was not specific so to me it was no help for this article but it will improve my future articles that's why i thanked him and bookmarked the page.

          My pleasure, Shehabzaza. I would like to add, that the other people who offered advice have been here a long time, and their input is valuable. I am always appreciative, when anyone offers help.

          When I first arrived here, I was amazed how many people with outstanding input on Hub Pages are eager and willing  to help newcomers. Sometimes the advice can be "hard to take", but they have had a lot of experience.

          P.S. I thought the photo you used for the intro, was great. I have not seen one of those floor lamps. A few more photos of different styles of floor lamps would be beneficial, and there are lots of them that are legally available online.

    I don't feel like you actually know anything about floor lamps when I read your Hub.  It sounds to me like you are just making up stuff to write instead of sharing your genuine and actual experience.

    And authenticity is something I really look for in a Hub.

      I agree with Relache, and also with Writer Fox - I read several of your hubs, and they look like bare-bones descriptions of products, with some specific products listed to (I would imagine) use for Amazon capsules once you pass the approval process. These may not be considered 'informative' in terms of this site's guidelines. If so, you would be at risk of being unpublished or flagged in the future.

      You've posted two threads on the forum asking for 'advice' on two separate hubs.  The advice you've been given applies to all hubs, so there should be no reason to continue posting additional hubs for 'help,' unless you see the forum as a source for getting views.  That can get reported, too.

    This hub is very much like your "All About Walkie-Talkies" hub that you posted for feedback in two different threads -- same sort of issues. Did you apply any of the feedback you received in those threads to this hub? More often than not, suggestions for one can apply to others.

    Thank you for the advice but you better see my comments before replying and wasting your time.
    Thanks & Regards.

    You don't really want feedback or help with your hubs. That much is clear.

    i need the positive help and support, about the negative help we all know that it destroys  so thank you again but no more comments are needed, and people who were positive i really appreciated it i learned from you.

    Thank you Shades i really like the way you educate people and advice them, and i'll sure do all what you told me in all my hubs in my next weekend.
    After that I'll ask you specifically if you please to check it for me after i'm done.

      I would be glad to do that, but there are many other Hubbers here, who are more competent to do so. I have only been on HubPages a few months, and I believe some of the other Hubbers' advice will be more helpful.
