    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub Day Trips from San Diego: 10 Places So Great You Might Just Move There.

    They've again sent me a generic email that there might be something wrong with my hub but they don't give any specific details. I'd appreciate any suggestions.

      I counted at least six links that go to movoto.com, so it's probably tripping a spam filter big time. There are a lot of links in the article that aren't necessary or really adding anything important, I would pare them down to a few essential ones. Make sure they aren't commercial. For example, the link to the outlet mall is iffy. Plus, is an outlet mall really a tourist attraction?

      On the surface of it, it is a good hub. That's until I started clicking on the links. Um. No. They're commercial and that doesn't work.

      Tried the link, but the page no longer exists.

    I see far too many links. You just need to tell your reader which places to visit, if they are interested they can find more information themselves. If you want to make money from this post with an affiliate link, then put one or maybe two acceptable ones.

    What they said.

    Also your grammar is not so good. This is the opening sentence:

    "Anaheim keeps gives kids to grandparents plenty to do."

    What does that mean?

    It looks to me as you have copied and pasted from Movoto, from an article by a writer called Alan Woods. Is that you? If yes, then you need to know that you can't post duplicate content at HubPages. If no, then you are guilty of plagiarism, which could get your account banned.

    Sorry, guys, I'm really embarrassed and thanks to theraggededge for spotting it.

    I thought that this article was one that movoto had rejected and so I was free to publish it anywhere.

    It turned out, this article had been published and I shouldn't have put it here.

    I've obviously pulled it.

      Oh well, at least it was your own. We've all made mistakes and that is an easy one to make.

      I'm sure you can find an even better topic to write about next time.

        I'm just glad you caught it right away.  Otherwise, I would've gotten flak from both movoto (who paid a lot for it, if I recall) and HubPages.  I'll dig into my topic list to see what needs writing.
