https://hubpages.com/literature/Beauty- … Beast-Poem
I wrote this poem 10 years ago and am trying to share it with the community and get it featured but it keeps getting rejected for its quality. I like poetry because it's not too strict about how it allows you to express yourself. Hence, before I can put out a better version of this poem I need more specifics than the following generic explanation.
Articles that exhibit the following criteria are more likely to be Featured on HubPages:
- Complete and in-depth coverage of their subject area.
- Attractive layouts (text broken up into multiple capsules with high-quality images and media.)
- Easy to read text (consistent formatting that avoids excessive bolding, underlining, or italicizing text.)
- Evergreen content (content that will stay relevant for months and years to come.)
- Proper English grammar and spelling conventions.
- No spammy elements (e.g., spammy links, unrelated product listings, repetitive keyword emphasis, links to your personal blog or website, etc.)
Angelo, It's actually a great poem with a strong meaning behind it. What you need is more supporting material.
Try adding another text capsule with something about history of your poem, such as how you wrote it 10 years ago, why you wrote it and what it meant to you. That adds interest to the content that increases its value to the reader and a better chance of being featured.
Also add your "about the author" bio–a statement that appears right under your name and is the first thing people see. Your bio should give some background on you, such as how you came to write poetry.
The image also needs attribution to the source. And make sure you have the rights to use it for commercial purposes.
Welcome to HubPages. Keep up the good work.

Let me preface this by stating I am not trying to be mean or a troll. In fact, I avoid the forums because I don't want to get involved. But with so many posts about the topics I'm about to discuss, I wanted...

I took a lot of time to write the three of my Hubs as linked below but they seem to have failed to pass the featuring and thus remaining un featured. I am interested to know what I can improve on them to make them...

Awhile back the team started unfeaturing articles due to lack of traffic. Many here think this is a bad idea, and I agree. Doing this upsets many writers and has nothing to do with quality or how Google...
