I'd like feedback on my Hub: Garden Birds of South Africa – Southern Boubou

    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub Garden Birds of South Africa – Southern Boubou. What can I do to improve?

    There seems to be a problem with this post which is similar to other previous posts
    Email content received
    It's possible that your Hub is not Featured because it contains spammy elements. Perhaps it was written for a link, or has excessive products capsules or product capsules that are not directly related to the content. Even Hubs that appear to be high quality can be spammy. We recommend that you remove any spammy elements from your Hub.

    If you don't see any spammy elements in your Hub, then it was likely defeatured for failing to meet HubPages' general quality standards. The Hub may have been too short or underdeveloped, had formatting issues, broken or unrelated links, and/or significant grammatical errors.

    Please assist as I am new to publishing posts and to HubPages
    Thanks!

        Hi Katchez
        Mine apparently has a link attached to it and I didn't insert any links except share it on Twitter and Google+.
        I don't understand where the problem is and only hope HubPages can be more specific when notifying one about such issues
        Only thing I've done now is edit the text and reserved images in another location on my computer and relinked them.
        Other than that I cannot supply you with further information
        Kind Regards
        Andre

          The email you get lists various POSSIBLE problems.  In your case, I'd say the problem is that the Hub is, basically, too short.  If you take away the photos, there is virtually no text.

        I had a look at your hub about cassava porridge. I think your problem is that your language skills need working on. HubPages wants magazine-style articles written to a fairly high standard of English.

          Okey, thank you. I will improve on that.

    Hi Marisa
    Thank you for your input. My other posts are exactly the same. I stated that it wa a pictorial post more than a "reading" post from the beginning. They seem to think there is a "link" in my post. The only "link" is that I am allowed to share on Twitter and Google+ which is what I did as I did with the others. Why now is this one a problem as I have done exactly what I did with the other publications. I don't understand what the problem is here. The last post actually had more text than the first ones which I have since edited. Why did the initial 5 "pass" and this one not?
    Kind Regards
    Andre
