To my understanding learned here in the forums (Thank You) and research there are two elements for the QAP:
(1) The crawl with an algorithm(s)
(2) Mturk process with its policy and procedures
I ponder how the MTurker approaches the task of rating a Hub contrast what is paid.
** Informational articles spammy elements fall into ratings 2, 4 & 6 in the category Substance and is a Google marketplace
** Creative there is no mention of spammy elements presuming ‘Not’ to use Amazon & Ebay capsules since a social market place.
Two ranges for rating a submitted Hub at MTurk while suggested is only a few minutes needed to assess.
(A) $0.05 – rated Mturker at one
(B) $0.15 – Rated at 100 or less through a qualification process & maintaining it
I question if HP submits to the first & if passes, then the second.
The MTurker must choose for a Hub – Informational or Creative with individual guides
Main focus – Substance, Organizational, and Grammar & Mechanics
With the first I surmise the strategy is organization & spammy elements or Big Picture
The second presumed through the qualification process known are the guidelines. A strategy is to Scan the article for organization while looking for spammy elements. Spot check the Grammar & Mechanics. Then skim here and there reading checking Substance?
Hubber Paul Goodman wrote a Hub Top 10 Amazon MTurk Tips and Tricks. I focused on #5 - Think through how long a task takes in Mechanical Turk and the relative pay rate.
The format for rating a Hub used at both MTurk & the Hub Hopper is a sliding scale with explanations for meanings
The guides used are found at Hub Rating Scale. The link lands on Informational.
Questioning the MTurker related to How it works posted a year ago (Relevancy today?) where Hubpages is mentioned within.
These are the instructions provided to Turkers for deciding whether a hub has spammy elements related to Amazon modules.
In general, product-oriented articles (those that contain Amazon and/or eBay ads inside the content) are considered spammy unless:
Product(s) are directly relevant and not excessive
If the article is about the product(s), then the article provides significant, useful information or opinion about the products beyond what could be found on Amazon's (or other seller's or manufacturer's) web site
If the article recommends a particular product, then the recommendation seems genuine, trustworthy, and unbiased
If the products were removed from the article, the remaining content would likely satisfy the reader
Thank You . . . I will be assessing affiliate capsules today with that information. Also, interesting I discovered a Hub by Paul Edmundson Challenges With Products in Hubs posted 11/06/15. Very informative to me relearning HP beginning anew after a long hiatus.

There have been several theories about what content Google is penalising and rewarding in the search results but at the moment it does seem a bit random (from my end). Let's compare notes and hopefully we can see some common threads in there. What content of yours is holding on to its ranking and...

I'm seriously considering removing all the Amazon capsules. It's time consuming to put them in.and in the last 2 years they have only made me less than $3. It's a total waste of time.

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...
