    I have a hub, that I feel is a quality hub, it is completely original, broken into section, and I think well written, but it keeps getting an idle status. I added a video capsule, updated it a little, and took a link out so that it doesn't have more than two outbound links.

    I would appreciate it if someone would take a look at it and let me know if there's something I can do to improve it, or if it's just that it doesn't have a lot search engine capability and I need to work harder at backlinking it. … IV-Charity

      Try changing some of the headings to more searchable headings (do some keyword research on them too!): Example: Instead of 'basics' have 'What is "Keep a Child Alive"'

      Take the definition of HIV and add it to a text box with a decent heading - right align it and 'color' it.

      Expand on each of the following programs: treatment, care, orphans, and awareness of HIV/AIDS.

      In general you could use sub-headings and bullet points to break the article up a lot more and make it easier to read and find important information...

        Thanks, I've broken what I already had down even further and I'm working on writing more to be able to expand on the stuff you suggested.

    On the first line:

    "Keep a Child Aliveis"

    Surely, the "is" should have a space before it.

    Apart from that, I can't see why it wouldn't be Featured, unless Hubs in that category are already overpopulated for the time-being.

      I can't believe I missed that. Well, thanks for checking it out and giving me that heads up.  Maybe I just need to get more traffic to it, and then it would fix itself.

      Thanks again.

        My guess is that it is regarded as overly promotional
        Why not fill out the form - I would be fascinated with the response. … Mmk1QVE6MQ

          It was never flagged as being over promotional, but I did have about 3 links to the charities website.

    Add "How To" in front of title and see what happens.

      and  "Alive - an"  instead of    "Alive-an"

        It's worth a try.

          I suspect that the rejection has very little to do with quality. I guess that the software QAP (not human) is reactiing to the "online shop"   [words and link] and triggering an "overly promotional" flag [not a violation though]. Try changing the words (e.g. 'charity outlet') and removing the link (you can always add it back later after getting featured and see what happens).
