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.

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

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).

Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and all this to no avail. The HubPages Staff continues to deem my hubs do not...

I had a Hub published about two years ago. The score on it was 83 and it received fairly good traffic. I recently edited it to add some additional info and a website for that info. That made two external links related to my research. As soon as I edited the Hub, it went back...

I don't agree with the 2 links to a single domain per hub rule but nevertheless I still play by the rules. I'm trying to cooperate because I don't want my account banned. I've been a member for over 10 months and I've never done anything wrong on hubpages. No spam, nothing. Anyway I submitted this...

This exclusive title became unfeatured recently. I changed the headings to more searchable headings and it went into pending - then to my shock it went back into unfeatured.What exactly is wrong with this article? Is it so bad that it cannot pass the Mturk...

Hi,I published this hub last night. This morning, I see a blank space where the "H" for featured usually goes. I've never seen this happen before. Is the hub being moderated for some reason? I have not received an email or anything notifying me that the hub is in violation. Please give...
