I published an exclusive hub of over 1100 words tables,poll and pictures on 2nd March. But instead of it bieng featured it has turn idle. I tried republishing it, but it becomes idle again. Is this kind of bug or some sort of error commited by me?
If it's the one (which I like, by the way) about "hair curling", that term brings up 59,700,000 results on Google, so it seems an over targeted subject; but, surely, millions of women are searching this topic every day? "Hair curling without heat" specifically brings up 3,930,000 results at present, which is still a lot. I don't know enough about hair techniques to suggest anything that would make your Hub more different from the rest of the results. I hope HubPages can help.
Hey monisays2u- if the Hub was not Featured right after its post-publication Pending period, it was not Featured for quality reasons. I'd re-visit to see if it has any grammatical mistakes that might have caused human reviewers to give it a lower score (given that you say it already has a lot of content and media).
Hope that helps!
I don't mean to sound harsh, but you need to brush up on your grammar skills and sentence structure. Some of your sentences don't make any sense: "If you want to select the best homecoming hair-style, check whether your hair is long, short or medium," "Girls with short hair can equally carry a bouncing look for homecoming hair-style," ". . . there are guys, who neatly care their hair . . ."
Also, you have some gender bias in this article that is considered pretty dated in America and the UK: "girls are more concerned about their looks" and "Many guys are generally rough and they do not take care much about their looks".
Again, I'm not trying to be overly-critical. I hope to give you a nudge in the right direction. Good luck!
Also you should attribute the pictures - even if they are yours, you should put that in the hub - if they are not yours you should show that you have permission to use...or give the creative commons reference etc.
Thanks Radcliffe for the reply.
I will take your reply in constructive sense and promise you, they will be corrected as per right structure.
But the hub you are looking is different and the hub which was idle is different. I am listing the hub below
http://monisays2u.hubpages.com/hub/How- … Using-Heat
This is the Hub. I will greatly appreciate your support.
Sorry it took me a while to get back here. I checked out the correct article, and the issues are basically the same. You need some work on sentence structure, but you'll get there with some practice. It's not that you have to use perfect English all the time--god knows we Americans can't even do that--but it's important to put together sentences that are easy to read without getting stuck on their meaning.
Keep changing around your existing hubs in order to eventually get them active. Sometimes my hubs go idle, so I change things around a bit and they become featured again.
Also, I looked up your keywords. "How to curl your hair without heat" would be a far better phrase (lose the "overnight" and "using"). Try to use this phrase, keeping the words together in your title. Maybe, "How to curl your hair without heat: 2 simple ways" or something like that. Also, include this phrase in your first paragraph. Something like, "Could you use some tips on how to curl your hair without heat? These simple ideas will create amazing results no matter what type of hair you have. You won't need any special equipment or expensive tools. Let's get started!"
See? You're addressing the reader's problem right away while making it easier for search engines to find you.
I hope this helps you out. I'm not an ESL expert, so I'm not sure if I'm communicating clearly. If I were you, I would Google "ESL games" or ESL lessons" to practice.
I loved your support and have started to solve the issues associated with my hub. I will definitely try to improve my word structure. But, you really look like an ESL expert. I have corrected some error and solving more.
Finally, my hub is featured now..Thanks for your support.
Yay! Thanks for saying I look like an ESL expert. I would like to help non-native English speakers rather than complain about their writing! I think it's brave to write in a second language, especially since I know only one language.
Hang in there!
Your English is good enough to make yourself understood, but it is clear to a native speaker that it is not your first language. Many of your sentences sound awkward or stilted, as others have noted.
This might sound harsh, but to be honest, I would rate the language quality as low, were I assessing this hub myself. Grammar and syntax are hard to master, I know, but even so, this is a writing website.
Unless you can make your English more flowing and natural, I suspect that you will keep falling foul of the quality control.
Thanks PaulGoodman67 for replying.
I am trying to imrpove my english as well as my grammar structure continously. Frankly speaking, English is not my first language as mentioned by you. I have learnt a lot from this journey and will contionously do so in future.
Monisays2u - a willingness to learn and improve and to take constructive critisism as it's meant is a great quality. I look forward to seeing your future hubs.
Thanks Simeyc for inspirational reply.
I promise you will see a better hub next time. I am working on one of Stellar right now.
Congratulations! - You must have been frustrated for a while, but things are better now.
Thanks Patty Inglish for replying.
Yes I am happy that things are fine now. I hope they remain better in future.
Thanks for the wishes
It's tough, I know. Most non-European languages use completely different structures to English. I suspect that definite and indefinite articles (a, the, etc.) probably aren't used in your first language.
I looked at your profile. Your articles may be better than they were, but there are still problems, if I'm honest.
You do also need to sort out your photos, like Simey mentioned. They need to be properly accredited. You can't just say that you got them from an unnamed friend.
Sorry if that sounds critical. Your English is good in terms of making yourself understood, but you will get flagged on a writing site for grammar and syntax if the sentences sound awkward, that's the reality.
Hello monisays2u i think when a hub is unpublish so that hub can not be republish again.
Thanks manahil ali for replying.
Welcome to our Community.
Hub can always be republished even after it becoming it idle or unpublished. You just have to add some fresh content or correct the errors which are associated with your hub.

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...

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...
