I submitted a hub last night, and have a message today that it will not be published until improvements are made. I have every one of the boxes checked in the goals section, and I did everything I can think of to do. How do I get someone to tell me what improvements they want. I have no idea what else to do. Have already looked at all the qualifications, etc. and don't see a problem. Thanks for any help.
You would need to get someone to read it through. Did they not tell you?
* Have you got pictures / photos in it?
* Are they properly and correctly credited?
* Does each paragraph contain enough words?
* Is it original and unique?
* Might it be too commercial in tone?
Thanks for the reply DreamerMeg! I should have come through with flying colors on all you mention. But I removed a video (which was definitely appropriate for the content), and they featured it. So, go figure! I guess everything is good, but I do wish they would explain exactly what they didn't like rather than just "needs improvement".
Dogtreatlady, they only told you it needs improvement because as a human who can read and write enough to create a Hub, they expect you to go to the Learning Center and learn in more detail what they mean by needs improvement.
I did go to the learning center, and did read their expectations. Since I thought I had done pretty much what they expected, I turned to the forum for help from more experienced Hubbers. I hope comments like yours are not the norm for people who come here for help.
This is a gem ---- a link that shows on how we can improve our performance in HubPages. I have read this before, and now I will have to study it more intensely. Thanks relache for posting the link.
Did you make the tile to the point and relate it to the content? Did you shorten the summary to 150- words and add a few keywords to both the title and summary?
I did do all of those things. All I did to correct it was remove the video (which was actually very pertinent), and they published and featured it. Still don't understand and think there should be more of an explanation. But I'm satisfied with the outcome.
Then try replacing the video. If a warning keeps coming up after you place a video (before you hit 'Done Editing') keep replacing the video until it works.
Eh, looks informative enough. Sometimes these things are really finicky.
Hi Dogtreatlady, Receiving that message can be somewhat unnerving. It is pretty vague and upsetting without pinpointing a root cause. Please keep your chin up and stick with it and you'll quickly discover all the stuff required to keep the robot (and human?) reviewers at bay. Sometimes it's as simple as removing a video like you discovered. Hang in there.
