    Hi Hubbers,

    Can you help me out with the Quality Assessment Process?


    Please give feedback on my Hub 10 Business Lessons from Tech Giants (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve?

    Thanks!

      At first glance, it looks as if you've confused "source" on your photos with caption. Hub Pages likes us to provide the actual source of the photo, although it's optional. If it is your image, you would put your name in the space for source, or provide the info on where the photo was obtained. This is to preserve the copyright status on people's images or verify that they are being used legally.

      Here is a link to the Learning Center. https://hubpageshelp.com/media/Learning … -image-use

      Not sure if this is the issue they have with your hub, but it might help you in the future.

      Other than that, the article looks good.

        Thank you for the feedback. I obtained the images from a website that contains public domain pictures. Do I still need to source them? Also, where do I place the captions?

          Yes, always show the source of your work, even if it is public domain.  That is how people know you are free to use it and are not "stealing" images.  You source it on the first line and caption it in the box at the bottom.

          I think it would be a good idea for you to read the information in the learning center, which you can access by clicking on "help" in the upper right hand column" of  this page.  That is where you can find all of the information and guidelines you need to know about that will help you to avoid mistakes and become featured more easily.

          When you add the photo in the capsule there are three boxes underneath. Source, HTTP link, and caption. I believe it is the one at the bottom that serves as caption.

          It's a good idea to include the public domain attribution on photos, although not required if you're sure they do not require it.

      I took a quick look at your hub and while, for the most part, it is well written, it lacks continuity.  In other words it looks almost like a list that is made up of a title followed by descriptions.

      Also, it lacks an introduction, and in a few places, notably your first wordage, you have not used complete sentences.

      All of this makes it seem "choppy".  You need to "flow" one section into another, rather than having each one seem separate.

      I love the info you provide and feel that with a bit of tweaking, you can make this into a great hub.  One more thing I would warn about is whether the info you provided is original.  In short, can I find it elsewhere on the net.  If so, even if it an be found piecemeal in separate places, it really isn't original.

      It's a good start, though, so see what you can do with it.  Good luck here at HP.

        Thank you for the feedback. From what I understand, you want me to link each point with the next? So that it all looks connected?

        Also, do you think I should include an intro and conclusion for the article?

        Thank you for the help.

          Every article, no matter the topic, should have an introduction as well as a summary.

          What I was describing was not exactly "linking" but rather "transitioning".  If you take a peek at a few of my articles you will see what I mean.

          What I usually do is state what I am going to discuss in my first capsule, sometimes by actually including a list, and then titling each following capsule using the listed items in the order they appear and following through with the discussions of each one.

          Then, at the end, I mention those same items and provide a few appropriate comments about them.

          For example, I may be talking about ways to earn money when you travel.  When I finish the capsule about one, I might end it with wordage such as "but this is not the only option".  That would lead into the next capsule that would then discuss another option and begin with wordage such as "something else you might want to consider is....).

          If you examine most well written articles here, you will see what I am talking about.  Also, the subtitles on your capsules should tell the basic story.  Someone should be able to scan them and understand what you are saying without having to read the article itself.

          As you can see, there is much more to this type of writing than just putting words to paper.  Once you start using this technique, you'll find that your work flows, is easy to read and therefore will attract more readers.

    I think you should always have an introduction - what and why you are writing and your own conclusion.

    Every hub that I have written, so far, has been featured, so I feel I might be helpful here.  To be quite honest, I just took a look at your hub, and I lost interest within the first two "lessons."  Firstly, this hub is lacking an introductory paragraph, explaining exactly what topic is intended for the hub.  Secondly, each lesson should begin with a topic sentence that clearly states its business lesson.  Thirdly, choose your vocabulary wisely; do not use words that are uncommon, or may appear to be "made up."  Remember, you have to aim your hub to your reader, not yourself.  Finally, add a conclusion paragraph at the end, that connects all of your ideas together, and reiterates the important points of your hub.  I hope this information will prove to be useful for you!
