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 see this message when my Hub is rejected: "Heads up! It looks like your Hub is not cleared for publication because it did not pass the Quality Assessment Process. No need to fret; every new Hubber goes through Boot Camp, and all you need to do is improve the Hub so that it meets our quality...

Published a hub on Oklahoma (please don’t get started on how it might be too generic – I had fun doing it). It became the template for my following hubs on Arizona and New Mexico. The Oklahoma one published just fine. The Arizona and New Mexico ones are now Not Featured due to...

I am being challenged. I have been having a problem getting a new hub to be featured. It has gone through QAP three times already. It is a new day, and I am feeling up to the challenge once again. Rested and refreshed after a good nights sleep, with a hopeful heart. So! Now, the hub will be going...

Don't know if this is the right section or not but I got five of my hubs featured within five days. Still have to wait for Hubpages to release me from the boot camp and receive my accolade for it.As for the boot camp it didn't really seem to help me and I know I'm still inadequate. However, I'm...
