Hi everyone. I was wondering if I could get some pointers on getting a hub featured. I have edited my hub "Items You Need For Your Dorm Room" several times but it has not passed. I have 3 hubs featured and am trying to get to 5 so I can get out of boot camp. Is that hub too wordy, too many Amazon products, not enough pictures, or poor quality? Thanks!
Are we allowed to post links in the forums. I'm not intending on being spammy, I am looking for concrete info. http://hub.me/ajCl9
I guess there is no way to tell then. I'll keep editing it. I just wonder which HP rule I must be breaking. All of my Amazon links are relevent and there are only about 5 for an 1100 word article. They are nicely separated too; not bunched together.
Have you seen the forum post about the new spam rules? There is a link to a blog post which has links to examples of the types of hubs that are spammy and the types that are not. I found those examples really helpful in figuring out what they really meant by spammy.
I'm not saying that your hub is, but you really need to be careful when writing that type of hub. All of the products must be directly related to the content of the hub, which for the title you are using does seem like it a lot of things would fit.

I don't worry about hubscores as long as my hubs get featured the first time I hit "publish". I know the score can start off low but can steadily climb over time. Curiosity has finally gotten the better of me...
