HP needs to specify "why is a HUB not featured". Do not you think?

    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?

      Hi, one of my hubs on aloe vera have not been passed. Have given up as I have checked it and removed some data but it still does not pass. Apparently
      the content is not up to standard. However this hub gets the most traffic.

    I'm guessing it was because of the language?

      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..

            It would seem to me that your proof editor has overlooked many basic errors in your writing.  It will not be published here if it is published elsewhere.

        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. sad

    robredman,

    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.

      Hi paradigmsearch,

      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.

              Ex:
              The day before yesterday, One of my hub scores was 78.
              65 yesterday and today it is 70.
