    I have been trying since almost a week to get my 4th hub featured...but it is not. I removed all links and products and have also added more content and images. I don't know what I have done wrong. Please help

      One problem is tenses. This looks like the beginning of a novel:

      In a land devoid of trees (trees were so rare in the area that a bush caused great excitement and was generally called a tree) and with little water, the blazing sun quickly became man's worse adversary

      This looks like an article (and gives a reader a better idea of what is going on):

      Kuwait is an arid land. Trees are so rare that even a bush can be a novelty, and is likely to be called a tree. With little water, the blazing sun quickly becomes human beings worse adversary.

      You can read about tenses in the style guide. https://hubpageshelp.com/standards/Lear … iting-Tips

      This is incorrect: The camel- a friend in times of adversary

      You need 'adversity' not 'adversary'. Also, Americans do not use long dashes for whatever reason. You need -- not - .

      I only read that far. I reckon you could make a good page with a little help from a copy editor.

      Best of luck.

      edit: 'worse' should be 'worst', I need editors too, lol

    I just realised that you have rephrased (barely) this page: http://www.windsor-brooke.com/History.htm

    I should have checked.

    You are likely to get banned for this kind of thing.
