I've edited it and edited it and still not approved for publishing. What's the problem? http://bizgrrl.hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Buy-a-Kayak
Hello, I have 3 hubs like that. No-featured. I was told it might be luck of key words, google not like a poor article content. Other issue can be the wholle layout of the hub or not well used pictures. Maybe you missing videos or polls. The list is endless. Lastly it can be a grammar issue.
I think it could be no photo credits.
Have you permission to use them if they are not your own?
You have two links to Amazon,not in a capsule. Try removing those and see what happens. If you're a member of the HP Amazon program, use a capsule instead but choose a specific kayak and say something about why you recommend it in the Description section.
You might want to read this and go over your Hub again,
I also had difficulty publishing my first hub and had to edit it multiple times to finally achieve the H=featured status.
Here are my recommendations after reading your hub.
1) Try to use orignal photos and give photo credits on all photos which you use from external sources.
2) Include more details and photos. You should include photos of these
a) Sit-On-Top Kayak
b) Sit-In Kayak
c) Inflatable Kayak
3) Make a different header for things to consider when buying a kayak

There is a lot of anger and/or frustration relating to the 'pending' system and most of it is down to the fact that it's not clear why there are exceptions - this is justified and there should be open-ness. (Note this...

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.
