Recently, I have published a hub: http://hubpages.com/style/Stamping-Nail … and-Tricks
I have tried to meet every requirement of featured hub, but it is unfeatured. Please help me on how can I work on it to make it featured.
I think they labeled it spammy due to the link to ebay in your first opening module. If you want to link to ebay open your link up in an ebay module down the page. The hub is well done otherwise.
You say nail art way too many times. I would recommend describing or defining it at the beginning of your hub. I know you think everyone knows what it is, but if you describe it, you will wind up adding key words naturally, and everyone will know what your personal definition is.
There are some formatting issues on the hub, where the words stop and the picture on the right carries on, leaving some awkward white spaces. I would recommend adding more words or changing the formatting so that doesn't happen.
Ok.. I will follow your suggestions.. Anyhow, i got notification that my hub is not featured because of spammy elements. Can you find anything like this?
The hub does seem like an advertisement for stamping plates. I would recommend adding some how-to's, like how to prepare your nails for painting, painting, how to use the plates, other ways you embellish that go along with stamping, etc.
Are all those plates made by the same company? Maybe if you tell about the different options that would make it seem less like an advertisement. Also the pros and cons of the stamping plates. You said you need good stamping polish - what makes it good? I'm not clear what I should be looking for. Write for someone who has never done it before, like me. I need to know everything!
If you took those pictures, I would recommend putting your name on them, so the moderator knows you took them and didn't lift them from the stamping company's advertisement. If you didn't take them, maybe you should take your own.
And you have a link to an ebay product, but I would take that out and add an outright sales capsule for a stamping plate, somewhere near the bottom of the hub.
Thanks for your in-depth suggestions
I have used different company stamping plates. All photos are my own, so i will give my own name for it. The ebay product link is to my own product. I do sell products on ebay in India. I can use ebay capsule, but hubpages allow ebay.com only and my products are on ebay.in
Anyhow, i do edit all stuff you mentioned. Thanks again for your help..

I'm not asking about why hubs get featured or un-featured. I kind of know that.The issue is: I just did a category search in my hubs, and found that, out of 292 published hubs, 149 are unfeatured due to low...
