I just tried to publish my 75th hub, but it didn't make it due to quality issues. This hasn't been a problem with my other hubs. I have no idea what I would need to improve to get it featured. Has anyone else had this problem?
My best tips to get s hub featured:
1) Make sure it's long enough 1000 words or more seems to be good
2) Include enough text capsule titles to guide the reader (and Mturk QAP) through the main points of your article
3) Add pictures- try to have at least three
I had a hub rejected recently but I think it was because it was under 500 words. I don't know if Hubpages has set a 500 word minimum but making the hub longer got it approved.
Are your photos properly credited? Are the photos ones that you are allowed to use?
Hi Barbara, yes, I got them from Morguefile and I'm pretty sure they're all properly credited. I'm careful about that. But I'll double check again.
This hub is nearly 1,000 words. I don't think it's the length. It's still pending, and I'm hoping that's a good sign.

I am venturing out into the forums on a rare occasion to personally ask a question I haven't seen anyone from HP answer to anyone's satisfaction to this point. I've just noticed a hubber which only joined around 14 hours ago who had a hub published only 30 minutes or so ago. See it for...

The hub I published this morning says not featured but has a good score and ads? I'm on my phone so I can't edit it. This is not a low quality hub though.

Do you think the "latest" answer to a question should be featured first?I know you can sort the list to show the latest answer, it just seems like it should be the default setting. It seems odd to me when I answer a question that already has many answers and my new answer ends up in the...
