New hub have high score, but not featured-quality symbol

    My recently published hub on book reviewing for Netgalley had received a score of 76, but it had gotten the not featured-quality symbol. I don't know why this happened. I haven't gotten the NFQ symbol in a long time, when my other hubs are featured and are from original content.  Any ideas why?

      It is related to the QAP assessment as it applies to unrelated and spammy elements. You can find more information here.

    Matthew, how is it spammy, when it deals with doing free book reviews for those websites?

      I would suggest reading over the link I provided above and then look at the links and products in your Hub. If you have any further questions, please email us at team@hubpages.com

    I did Matthew. All I have is a Kindle from ebay and Amazon for  my products. Two capsule hubs. Or should they be more? I have a link to my website, to First to Read and to Netgalley. Not too many, though I've removed the link to my blog.

      If you used the word download in your Hub, they kick it for spam...

    Okay. How else would you phrase it then, when you need to download an ebook to review?  You could be right.

      I think @LillyGrillzit is thinking about a content warning that is related to "free downloads" but that is not the issue with this Hub.

    I sent an email back to you Matthew, since I'm a bit lost on the spammy elements.

      If you're promoting your own products that's a no-no!

    I see. Though the hub's now fixed, I guess promoting my own book blog is considered spammy.
