Is there a place where I can post a specific article of mine, in hopes of receiving feedback regarding why I can't get my article to pass the quality assurance process?
Currently, I have one article, with a score of 80, but I can't seem to figure out what to do to make it enough quality to be featured.
(It currently has the empty circle icon attached to it, on the far right -- the feature column -- of the statistics page.)
I've spent quite a bit of time review various resources on HubPages--articles written by both writers here, as well as staff, and I can't seem to figure out what to do to pass the quality assurance process.
Almost my entire collection of articles has been featured, however, this one has me scratching my head...
I know what you mean. It took me over a month to get a quality acceptance rating. But as I studied it more and more...There was a section that just didn't fit. Read it as through your seeing it for the first time. It should jump out at you. Trust me something is wrong or missing. Good luck on finding it but...Don't give up.
I have had so far only one article not being accepted due to duplicate content. When i changed it (a lot!) it still didn't pass and the reason was exactly like yours - quality issues. Not sure why it didn't pass, i have some other similar articles and they all went through in the first check. To pass quality check i recommend using at least Ms Word as spell checker. It works for me. Also make sure to use pictures and other elements. Good luck!
I had similar experience when I wanted to publish a hub which later featured.
It is either because the article has been written overly on the web or due to the word count (it might be up to a thousand but more required).
You can add additional words of up to 200 and see what the result will be like.
Poor quality hubs are associated with:
One long text capsule.
Keyword repeated many times.
More than 2 Amazon & eBay capsules.
Illegal links, including affiliates.
Less than 700 words.
Many spelling and grammar mistakes.
Read more from the learning center.
Hope that helps.

I recently had a hub un-featured for engagement, as the half-circle indicates. I think this is an unfair practice and should be eliminated entirely. Here's why I feel this way:Our hub traffic is often affected by the...

Another of my ex-Squidoo articles has been unfeatured due to quality and I really can't see why - all the boxes are ticked in the 'need some goals' section, no warning signals etc etc. I've been writing for HP now for...

Awhile back the team started unfeaturing articles due to lack of traffic. Many here think this is a bad idea, and I agree. Doing this upsets many writers and has nothing to do with quality or how Google...

Could someone please take a look at my hub on Reflexology and tell me where I have gone wrong? I stopped writing hubs for a long time because I felt it wasn't worth the effort, but with all the new safeguards and...
