As you may have guessed, I am new to Hubpages. I created my first hub and submtted it to be published. I received a message from the moderator that it is not up to standards for any of the following reasons.....very generalized. How do I go about finding out more specific reasons?
e m ail them and ask them- did you put a lot of personal content in?
Thank you for your prompt response, CASE1WORKER. Since posting here, I've visited several Hubs to get a better idea of what a good Hub would look like. I realize now, that yes, it does contain personal content, but it also was writen in a blog-like way. By that I mean written in a continual manner. This isn't acceptable format, I have found. Once again, thank you for your help!
You know Faithjoy, I have been here a year but was away for some time.
And then like you, I just recently come back and I see all these "substandard hubs".
"What the ?!@#$%?"
And so now, I am busily trying to at least make them "standard", so I feel you.
Anyway, welcome to HP!
The site FAQ can provide a lot more detail,
Your question seems wellphrased, so it would not seem to be your 'writing'. Subject matter? Sadly no one can comment on your piece without reading it! Try leaving it for a few days and then read it again - you may notice phrasing which could be improved upon. There is very little use in trying to edit your own work as soon as you have finshed it. It has to be completely left and 'forgotten' and then returned to after a few days - and you may see what was apparently unacceptable. You may need to do a little re-writing. Have another go...!
Faithjoy, you can also email the Hubpages Team to ask about the specific reason, and they may respond with more detailed feedback. http://hubpages.com/email/help/

Want to see some amazing low quality hubs? Go to the top of the page, click hubbers, then click "latest". There will be a few good ones but at least half are spam and many hubs are just a few sentences, often...

I just wrote a quick hub about guinea pigs and it was rejected for being substandard. It is 596 words and I'm assuming grammar is not a reason it was unpublished. "The quality of this Hub does not live up to...

HubPages has this wonderful feature called Hub Hopping or Hub Hop to flag low-quality/copied/spam content. I know some hubbers do use this and help HP staff weed out the substandard content. Here's one more reason why...
