Something new?

    My most recent hub published this morning is not showing a turning as it use to before becoming  feature; just shows O unfeatured. Do I need to do something or just give it more time?

      Its a 'bullet hole'. It has been rejected for 'quality'. You will need to find out what is wrong and rectify the problems. Good luck!

        Well thank you; I had no idea, this never happened before and I did the table and all on this hub, what more could they want?

          It is often spelling and grammar. Try SpellCheckPlus(dot)com. it provides a spell checker and a simple grammar check. You can try it for free and its cheap. It is much simpler and easier to use than other grammar checking software. Look for unrelated links as well. The problems relate to the rules, not to whether you include a table etc. Errors in Captions are easy to miss. You can also email HP and ask for a 'hint' for where the problems lie. They won't tell you what the actual problem is, for some strange reason, but they may say "It is probably X or Y" type of problem. Cheers

            It is none of the ones you mention for sure. Almost all my hubs go featured withing 2 to 3 hours. Must be something new....maybe I can add pictures but I have three and I see many others featured with just one.

            No one bigger on purdy pictures than me and most times my own.

      G'day Jackie as someone has said already HP is big on Purdy pictures but I think they should have included 'relevant' as well.  You have two images that don't appear relevant to the Title of the Hub?
      Also I can remember someone on staff 'requesting' us to use a full width image as our first image with a 'caption'
      I hope you are feeling better smile

        Thank you; but if you read the hub all pictures are relevant. They would make perfect sense to ones I am writing the article for. It did become featured just adding a subtitle so my guess is someone came in immediately and started voting me down to cause this and that is something HP needs to do something about. Anyone who does more than one vote down on one hub should drop points on their own score. But all is fine now; feeling better; thank you.

          For your Hubs to 'get' to the people you are writing for,  you must first satisfy others?
          Commenting from a purely neutral position (and looking at it from Googles position )can you tell me how an image of a Chapel is 'relevant' to the content of your Hub.
          I am just trying to be helpful here smile
          BTW you have a typo on the title of Hospital image ? Was that deliberate ?

            If you "read" my hub I spoke of my fear and coming to terms with what I had to do and I did that through prayer to God and my faith in His hand over me; either here on earth or if I were not to survive. I am at peace in whatever happens to me through faith in God. I did not make a production of it; no, but it was certainly number one in my personal experience.

              OK then why not use a 'image' of God?  That would be more 'relevant' !

                To you...not to me. I see my God my way...and I have no pictures. Everyone understands a place to talk to Him...whether they choose to or not.

                  It was purely a suggestion coming from the SEO angle of how many people would be searching for an article on Cervical Myelopathy Surgery and the very first image they would see on your hub is a Chapel ?
                  Nice to see you fixed the typo but may I ask you why the 'brackets' ?
                  Cheers

              I respect your values on faith and God. But, I also think that some images of your ECG reports, x_rays and scan reports could be much suitable here. This is my suggestion.

      Once they wouldn't feature one of my hubs because I had copied something I wrote about that particular recipe that was on a blog that I had.  I didn't think much about doing it since it was my recipe and by blog.  But I still couldn't do that so I had to change the wording.  I don't know what your hub was about, but sometimes it's things like that.

        No it is all original; but it is featured now and going up. Thanks though!

    Stats are hung up too - it maybe that all of the changes to HubberScores are creating extra work elsewhere, and sapping resources.  Also, its the weekend; things tend to go wrong and unaddressed for longer periods.

      Could be that; it's fine now.

    I thought you usually get an email when you are not featured for quality.  I don't know for sure, but I think it has to do with the sources you listed at the end of the hub. If the hub has a relatively high score but it is defeatured, it usually has to do with the new over-promotional policy. 

    There is a link to an article you wrote about leg pain which is not related to the subject to the hub.  HubPages requires all links to be directly related to the content of the hub. The first two links have all sorts of gobbledygook on them. Can you fix that? Just delete all that extra stuff after the .com

      It is related and I hope many will read it that may have this type pain. I don't know what I would have done without it and I take it still religiously. It is especially good with this surgery too because it relieves acid reflux which is a big issue with this type surgery. It also helps with the neuropathic pain which I still have with the nerve damage that may take awhile to heal; and whether completely or not I do not know. Maybe I should point it out more; I meant to mention it; guess I forgot. I am not trying to sell it and have no ads on it. I did wonder about the long links but I just copied and pasted them from the pages I read from. I will recheck those, thank you,
