I posted my first hubpost yesterday and it was unpublished this morning. The reason given was substandard post....I looked through all the rules and terms and I don't see anything in my post that would apply to any of these.
Is there somewhere that I can get a more specific answer so that I can fix it and re publish?
Thanks for your help~
hi victoria, It's difficult to say without reading it, but ask yourself was the hub original, was the content good, was any of it copied from else where. Was it too short, did it contain any information that shouldn't be published. As you can see there are many reasons for this action. Try again after reading some of the answers about what makes a good hub in the forum pages. Good luck to you.
You don't need to mail the admin team. You can get a list of what is considered "substandard" in the FAQ right away without having to wait for a reply.
Contact the HP team directly with any questions.
How long was it?
Nothing bugs me more than somebody taking up a great keyword URL with 100 words.
A hubpage should be 800-1200 words on average in my opinion. I have a few with 300-500 and a few with 1500-1800, but this isn't a blog... it is an article site.
If it isn't for that reason then disregard what I have said, but that often is the reason.
Your hub only contained a paragraph of text, an image, and a video. We like to see more text than that, unless you're doing a hub containing primarily images, in which case you need more photos, and to categorize the hub in the Entertainment > Photos & Videos > Photo Galleries.
Hope this clarifies.
Tips straight from the top. Hi Maddie! anyways, if you write about personal experience..maybe try to write it answering the 5 W's and one H. Keep in mind you are writing for a audience and will depend on what your goals are. Do you want to help? start a debate? etc. Hope that helps. Welcome to HubPages!
