I am working on a hub to get featured for a week and still could not make it.
I submitted a hub (which is the second part of a featured hub) with a repeated paragraph, missed a punctuation and forgot to complete a sentence.
It was not featured. That was fair because I missed something on the hub.
I put the punctuation, removed the repeated paragraph and closed the sentence and re-submit for the publication.
It was not featured again.
I made some polishing again and re-submit for the publication again.
It was not featured again.
I tried four times and still could not get it featured.
I am so confused what is wrong with this hub. Hope, I am not alone here.
If the HP gives suggestion or reason why it is not featured then we can save the time and move to next hub.
Even the Adsense provides the reason when an application is rejected.
HP is not specific to what type of a website has HubPages actually become and why is a hub not featured as well.
Many people in HP writing their experience, spending time and put a lot of effort to make it better.
When simply HP rejects an article which is absolutely perfect from the author's view, what he can make it better?
I proofread my hubs with a native American writer.
You can see the not featured hub HERE
Do you see any language issue there? If yes, could you please let me know?
If that is your Hub, it has been duplicated elsewhere and will be seen as duplicate content.
Sally, I published in that site after many times HP rejected the hub. I published on that site just yesterday. When I submitted for HP publication it was not published anywhere..
You Hubs still display many basic grammatical English errors. Just because you found a native English-speaker to look over your work doesn't actually guarantee the person is a writer capable giving editorial feedback or passing the QAP.
You mean my featured hubs also have many basic grammatical English errors?
An hour ago one of my Hub has been featured : Gangaramaya - a Floating Temple on the Lake in Sri Lanka
And, I do not know why my Hubber score suddenly went down after I opened this discussion.
Write about programming? Apparently it is what you love and are good at. The HubTool even has a code capsule that can be set to various programming languages. Code syntax is universal, so the English-second-language issue will be less of a problem.
Thanks for the suggestion.
I wanted to write about programming and programming is my full-time job but the thing is programming get less traffic and attention in HP / any other sites unless the site is not specialised for programming.
People do more attention for Jennifer Lawrence's / Tom Cruise's shoe than the news about a programming language / Stephen Hawking
And, the hours I spent for watching Hollywood movies longer than the hours I spent in bed in my whole life. So I thought that I can write easily about what I am interested of.
I do not know why my Hubber score suddenly went down after I opened this discussion.
What is your average hub score? The average hub score is a significant component of the hubber score.
Average hub score is 57 at the moment I am typing this. It is not stable as well.
It was more than 75 two days back.
I submitted 7 hubs and 5 hubs were featured.
Yep, looks like the hub average is what brought down the hubber score.
Yes, I think so. Thank you for the clarification.
It is getting increased again. Now it is 70..
Why is Hub score not stable ?
All of my Hubs' score are changing every day.
The day before yesterday, One of my hub scores was 78.
65 yesterday and today it is 70.

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...

For months I published no hubs and my hubber score sat around 96, in the last month I published three hubs, all of which are featured and each time I published one my hubber score dropped by two points, it's now down to 90. Is this how HP rewards us for our hard work? Correct me if I'm wrong but...

The hub I published this morning says not featured but has a good score and ads? I'm on my phone so I can't edit it. This is not a low quality hub though.

I was delighted to see my hubber score climb to 90 yesterday. Today after I published another hub that also got featured (and in just an hour this time), I noticed that my score fell by 3 points. How come? I know hub scores can fluctuate but hubber scores? I even had a comment on my new hub...

Last night, I published my first hub and I am waiting to see if it will be featured or not. I see that about 20 hours after publishing, my hub has recieved 10 views and a score of 52. Is that score good? I made my article attractive with 3 photos properly credited, a poll, a quiz and of course...
