A few days ago I went to edit my only feature hub http://thezinc.hubpages.com/hub/The-Eas … ium-Guide. I didn't end up changing anything and when I saved changes the day after the featured hub had become unpublished and was red. I couldn't really figure out the issue but I tried a few different changes like adding source links for my images and checking the html code of the page, without any success.
My warning message is as followed:
"This Hub is unpublished because it did not receive high enough ratings to meet HubPages' quality standards or because it contains spammy elements. It will remain unpublished until it is edited, published again, and rated high enough to be Featured. To see our rating criteria, please visit our official rating scale (we recommend shooting for criteria matching Hubs rated eight or above)."
I don't get it since nothing was changed in the first place?
Try to edit the Hub (change entire sections or move one section beneath another section) and publish it. Hope it will be okay..
Nothing may have changed in your hub, but the rules have changed. As soon as you re-publish, the hub goes through the QAP and what may have been acceptable earlier no longer is. Maybe it had too many Amazon capsules? I don't know because I can't see it - comes up with a 404 message.
Thank you, I have reduced the number of amazon items down to three. It previously had a list of about 7-8 in a row and have also shifted the capsules around. Hopefully it will do the trick It makes sense though, the platform has evolved since and the requirements have changed.
The same thing happened on my hub too. Funny enough, the hub in question has the highest score of all my hubs with impressive traffic.
May be the staff responsive should be telling us what exact they need because I editted it but it still got unfeature because of "quality"
Saving a Hub, even if no actual changes are made to the content, will send that Hub back through the QAP process.
Okay so the article has finally been accepted and is now back onto the featured status.
The three changes that I made were:
- break up the amazon product list at the bottom of the page.
- swaped the previous unsourced images with amazon items related to the image and capsule..
- brought up the video capsule right to the top of the page and changed the video.
Here is the link to the hub:
