    Hi everyone,

    I have 2 questions:
    1. Does video matter a lot if I post a Hub without it?
    2. How can I prevent the published article returned for moderation?

    I am pretty new to the Hubpages and I hope someone who has been here long enough to help me to improve my Hubpage. I am Chinese and English is my second language. I am not asking Hubpage to lower the standard just because of my English skill, but I have worked very hard to write a quality article.  But the problem is some of my articles could not published since they did not meet the standard. I was discouraged a little bit. So, I took off two articles and then I tried to write something else I am comfortable with. Good thing is my recent two articles are marked as feature articles. But one of my articles returned for moderation.
    Thank you very much.

      Welcome to HubPages.  Many writers here have English as a second language, too.

      1. You do not need a video on your Hub.
      2. Was a reason given for not featuring one of your articles?

      You can always send an email to team and ask them what needs to be improved.

      Also, you might find some information here: … tellar-Hub

    Three more questions:

    1. Why cannot I put 3 amazon ads in one amazon widget?

    2. If Hubpages like one amazon ad per widget, why does it allow more in one giving the option?

    For example, one of my articles - Top 9 Vitamins Women Must Take, was returned for moderation, the only change I made is to separate 3 Amazon widgets (3 ads per widget)  into 9 Amazon widgets.   

    3.  Why do I have a different web address to my article?

    For example, my first submitted article is Chinese traditional medicine doctor's lifetime health rule, but it did not meet the standard, so I wrote another one - Top 9 Vitamins Women Must Take, but the web address is the previous article address ""

    Thank you for your help!!!

      Hi Ming,

      Welcome to HubPages! We have a very friendly and supportive community and as Writer Fox mentioned, many writers here on HP have English as a second language.

      We've made a recent change and we now only allow one product per capsule, so if you'd like to add more products, you'll have to add additional capsules.

      The URL of your Hub is permanent once that Hub is created. You can edit the Hub and change the Hub's title but the URL will always stay the same. You can create a new Hub with a new URL and transfer the text of your Hub there, but honestly, a good title is much more important than the Hub's URL.

        Thank you Christy. Now I understand how amazon capsule works as well as why my article has a different URL.

    I might be wrong, but I don't think hubbers from countries other then USA are allowed to use amazon capsules. Check it in earning settings.
    As for your URL, I don't think that's possible. There must be some confusion.
    Did you delete the contents of your first post and wrote the second on the same draft?

      No, it's not just USA.

      Yes, you are right. I just deleted the contents without creating a new hub. I'll know next time. thank you.
