I am here for 2 months. Today suddenly all of my 23 hubs are marked as substandard.
What I did so far
1. My hubs are 400 to 450 words long, two of them around 300 words.
2. Used 15 to 25 tags.
3. Just keyword only in the title.
4. English is not my first language.
5. Half of the hub I rewrite from PLR articles. Complete rewrite.
What is the problem with me?
What I need to do in the future?
Actually i got email from hubpages just for one hub which is classified as substandard. But apart from that one hub all my remaining 22 hubs are also marked as substandard.
some part of email i got from hubpages team

Your Hub has been unpublished, giving you the opportunity to finish it. When you are ready to have HubPages review it again, please edit it and click the "Submit for Publication" button. We will then review your Hub, and publish it if it appears finished. You will then get an email saying that the Hub has been republished.
Contact hubpages team and tell them your problem.I think their is some english speeling mistakes in your hub.
1- you may want to make them longer, at least 600 words.
300 is too short, not enough content.
2- it sounds like too many tags for that amount of words, although this wouldn't be a major problem
3- your keyword(s) need to be within your content, not just in the title.
4- Perhaps do more work on your English. I'm sure it would help the content flow better.
5- try to write a completely different article.
I suggest going to the Learning Center and reading through everything and watching all of the tutorial videos. Spend some time reading the hubs in the categories you write about. look at the layout and the way some of the best hubs are put together and this will help you.
It's probably harder with English not being your first language, so take the time to make the very best you can.
good luck. don't give up.
Add more content using the capsules; rss feeds, photos, polls, quizes, news feed etc.
English is my second language also,I have seen your articles earlier,English should not be your problem here. 300-400 word articles are ok.HP itself recommends 250-1000 word article. I think your keyword were also ok. The only problem I see is the rewriting. I suggest you to mail the team and ask for the particular reasons. http://hubpages.com/contact_us/
I'd say it's because English is not your first language, but I actually think you do pretty well. I've seen worse on here.
I agree, I think I am the person with the worst English in HP.

That is your key right there, it is HubPages letting you know they do not appreciate re spun content. Does not matter that the material has appeared elsewhere. Its most likely being PLR material there may be one copy or 100 copies on the internet already, rewritten using different words. Using different words does not make original content.
The best work to produce on HubPages is to produce YOUR OWN material in YOUR OWN original words.
Please do not start several threads on the same issue, that is confusing and against the TOS.
TopUniverse, no worries. I hope you get it sorted soon.

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in...
