I wrote this new hub with all the things I learned so far about what Hubpages wants. I may not have attained the Holy Grail of making the right kind of hub. Couldn't resist putting in more than a couple links (none go to anything of mine). And I added an eBay capsule which I had weeded out of almost all my other hubs.
Give a look and tell me what you think. It hasn't gone into QAP yet ( it is VERY new)
First sentence is not quite right... "Considered one of the oldest folk arts, Hungarians..."
It should read, "Considered one of the oldest folk arts, needlework..."
'Hungarians' aren't folk art I think that whole sentence could be reworked. Your opening words are so important.
I haven't read through the rest, but you pretty much answer your own problem - take the eBay & Amazon capsules out, and the links. Republish the hub without them. Then try adding them back in one by one over a couple of weeks.
Thanks for the input- I spent some time editing, including making what I hope are smoother transitions between the info. I appreciate the time spent on giving helpful critique
The hub has a lot of nice material but I would suggest focussing on having a more logical, linear progression from beginning to end. Then say at the beginning what topic you will cover. To me it comes across as a bit scattered and wandering, so I never know what the next section will be about.

Had never done a “sales” hub before so decided to try. Have tweaked and tweaked this hub but it still keeps on being not featured due to quality. Getting a little T’d . . . http://geminifox.hubpages.com/hub/Green...

For those who are no newbie to HUB Pages you probably share the same frustrations of working for hours on a hub only to be insulted with the friendly heads up message sending you back to a tutorial about writing rich...

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is...

I am being challenged. I have been having a problem getting a new hub to be featured. It has gone through QAP three times already. It is a new day, and I am feeling up to the challenge once again. Rested and refreshed...
