    The hub I'm referring to is: Researching Old Military Pictures and Photos.
    HP is constantly unfeaturing it.
    I think the reason is because of the partial names I've listed that are on the back of the photo. Many of the letters were blocked out by glue.
    If this hub is going through MTURK then some idiiot is not reading the hub. If they would read it they would see that these are not mispelled words -THEY ARE PARTIAL SIGNATURES.
    I did the title tuner last night and again today it's unfeatured.
    Isn't there anyone in HP who has sense enough to realize that this hub contains vital information that is very valuable to genealogy researchers.

    I was going to take a look and offer an opinion when I saw the title of this thread, but your last post makes it clear there's no point. Anyway, just letting you know I was here. Good luck in the future. smile

    At least there I KNOW it will be read and it will make a heck of a lot more money than it did here.

    I could be wrong but it seems to me that the title is a bit misleading considering that you are not researching old military photos, you only have one photo you discuss.  You give no information on how or why or any benefits, resources, etc... the only benefit this hub provides is possibly to a family member or someone doing specific research on one of the names you provide... and most of them are just partial names.

    Your main keywords in your URL do not match your keywords in your title and neither your title or URL keywords have any search volume to speak of. 

    I'm not trying to be negative, but if there is no search volume (nobody searching for your keywords) then the only traffic you will garner is from internal shares among other hubbers.  This is the reason it is being unfeatured.  It has little to do with the images itself or you would have been notified about that. 

    HP is looking for Long Format, Media Rich content... Lots of images, videos, charts, maps, polls, quizzes, resources and anything else that is going to engage the reader/searcher so that they spend more time on page.

        As an MTurk "idiiot," I third.

        It's likely falling on substance... Grammar is not the issue.

          and I fourth....

          at some point, one must realize it is not always the 'other guy' causing all the issues. Several people have now viewed and expressed issues within the hub in question (which isn't unpublished, mind you so HP isn't refusing it from the site it just isn't featured) so fix the issues and see if they work or don't  complain about it. I think there are a lot of hubbers who need to realize that the reasons their hubs aren't getting featured isn't because HP's quality expectations are ridiculous or unattainable. Thousands of hubs have no problem getting featured every day.

          Suck it up and take some responsibility, people.

    I had a look at the hub and regretfully I agree that there is not much to it.  After a brief intro you show one photo and type out what was written on it.  That does not really do what the title promises, which is help people successfully research an old military photo and discover what it is showing in terms of time, place and people. I would suggest going on to show what that photo is actually of, which branch of the service, what time and place.

    I find this to be an interesting subject, but you've fallen short of the promise given in the title. You need to flesh it out with much more detail. You might want to pick one of the incomplete names and do the research that you've just touched upon.  Hopefully you'll be able to find the missing information and document the steps that got you there, complete with links to authoritative sites.  You're on the right track, but you need to go further.
