Hello, while I'm not brand new to internet writing, I am new to this pub. I recently published an article series, on Gobekli Tepe, and one of my off-site readers suggested a video of the pics i couldn't get into the arts. The research I did for the article was deep and many of the pics had been unpublished as yet as the good Dr. in charge of the excavation e-mailed the info to me. After I published the article with a youtube video embedded correctly, the number was unpublished. The e-mail the admin sent was quite vague, but i looked over the guide lines and requested another look at the hub.
It was refused...again with very little exact explanation as to why. I've added a little more text to the hub, and according to my open office the word count is at 130. Before I suffer the rejection again, can somebody please tell me what is wrong, or at least a more educated guess than I can come up with? The hub is here:http://hubpages.com/hub/Gobekli-Tepe-A-Slideshow-Just-For-You
I hate rejection and my self esteem probably isn't too important to others, but...
Welcome to Hubpages!
If your total word count is 130? Then it would be considered "substandard", unless it is a poem and categorized under poetry.
Edit: Just to let you know, only Staff can read or see unpublished hubs, which your hub is unpublished.
Wow, that's what I thought. Thanks a lot. But when the hub was unpublished, there were only 6 views. Since then the views have increased to 28 with three today...what's with that? I'm wondering if it is working like a private page for those who already have the web add. Can you tell me if this is so? Once again, thanks a lot and thanks of the hearty welcome, this has been an excellent experience so far even in light of this little set back. Guess I need to go correct this so you guys can see all the goodies DR. Schmidt sent me!
Your views count. The visits that you make to edit that hub is included in the page impressions. Welcome to HP!
I agree with Sofs. The views are you, if the hub is unpublished. It could possibly be Staff too. Since you asked for an appeal of the ruling on your hub. But, I don't actually know if Staff views are included or not. That would be something you would have to ask Staff about.

Just curious how it is possible for youtube to direct traffic to one of my hubs...

I know that hubpages is strict about violations and copyright but is it a violation to post a youtube video in your hub, which you know includes copyrighted material, which the one uploading the video did not have...

It seems Editbot is at work again. Had several little fixes, almost all in comments.

I know that our own views are counted on the stats page but I have not opened this hub to edit it today and yet I can see that I have had four visits!
