I asked for help on my hub page but people can't see it. How can I get a link to an unpublished page?
You have to publish it first. Then it will go through QAP (Quality Assessment Process). If it fails that, they will send you an email with a link for you to ask for help in the forum.
I have edited it and published it multiple times but have never gotten an email of any sort.
Wait a while. Hubs are approved by humans and it doesn't happen immediately. Everytime you press Publish, it goes to the back of the queue.
Have a look at your statistics page: http://hubpages.com/my/hubs/stats. On the right of the hub, there should be a symbol which tells you its status.
I've published and republished the hub many times over MONTHS and it keeps coming back as needing improvement. But I can't figure out WHAT needs improvement. I've edited the text, removed graphics, added graphics, remover all of the links, etc. but don't have a clue as to the problem. The stats page says nothing and when I click on violations it finds none. There is a score of 54 but I can't find any info on what the score means. It is very frustrating.
If it keeps coming back, then you should receive emails with a link. Check your junk folder.
Frustrating in the extreme for you.
1. Is it long enough? A minimum of 800 words, I'd suggest.
2. Are your images copyright-free?
3. Have you included any commercial links?
4. Is the topic 'legal'? http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/restricted-topics
Maybe this might help?
Hello. Jump to this link for the Guidelines for Rating a Hub. It lands on the guidelines for an informational Hub. You can toggle at the top left to a Creative article.
Anyway . . . what I would do with a score of 54 is look at the rating of 5 and go from there. That is what I do when I get articles not passing the QAP. I look to see what they thought of the article initially when it went through the human element at the Mturk for the QAP. Then glance at the above ratings for more clues. I hope that helps in some way . . .
If it went through a human element, there would be no way for me to tell. Thanks for the idea. I've looked through the guidelines several times.
The only communication I've had is that it does not meet the standards. No further info. And what does he score of 54 mean? It is not explained anywhere that I can find.
I appreciate the suggestions. I have seen no warnings nor have I gotten any information that would give me a clue as to the reason my hub page keeps getting not published. My subject matter is on using software in education, hardly a banned or controversial topic. I just want some feedback since I'm getting really frustrated.
My guess, based on your user name, is that you are getting the over-promotional quality flag. Is this software that you have written and/or are selling? This is not the place to promote your own products. If you want to do that you have to do it much more subtly - write an informative hub and include the product as a recommendation. Make sure that the topic of the hub is directly related to the product you are trying to sell..
Very good tip. Pretty much what I was trying to do. I wrote a piece about how to evaluate educational software using one of my products as an example. There is only one link and that is to the software info page. I even republished with this link removed and it still did not pass. I guess I will need to try a completely different track or just give up on Hub pages.
