can someone help me improve this hub to get it featured? http://hubpages.com/politics/What-immig … mmigration I would like suggestions of things to change to be able to get it featured.
Mr. Lee, I just read through it and here's my suggestions:
1. Title is too long. Think like a newspaper headline writer. What catches the reader's attention. Maybe "Immigration: My View." "Immigration: A Different Look.." Try putting Trump in the title, he has a lot of supporters here. Something catchy. That may not be why it's not featured, but it helps.
2. You finish a lot of sentences with prepositions. Not the end of the world, but that does not help getting it featured. Read through one more time and try to either change the wording or shorten the sentences.
3. Narrow down the topics. It goes off on tangents a little bit. Not a lot. But take one part of the issue and discuss it. You can write another hub to cover other aspects.
Overall, I hear HP is not fond of hubs that are overly personal. I have only heard that from others. I don't write personal or autobiographical works, but your first paragraph is very personal. I think it does give perspective, but maybe too much? It also comes across something like "I'm not racist, I have lots of black friends." That is not your intention but that is how it sounds. It is a delicate topic and words can be interpreted differently.
I hope it helps and I wasn't too picky. Let me know if you need anything else.
The headline is too long and if shortened must be in Title Face.
Your first paragraph shows multiple errors; corrections in brackets.
peruvian (Peruvian) woman with whom I have four children. I work at a research laboratory ran (run) by a Chinese lady, who happens to be one of the most intelligent people that I have ever had the pleasure to meet (of meeting) in my life. In the Laboratory (laboratory) there is also a Postdoctoral Fellow (post-doctoral fellow) from China as well whom (who) is also extremely intelligent.
Apologies for not having time to go through the whole article but that sample tells me there are many English language issues to be fixed before going on to examine the content of the article.
If you want your Hubs to get lots of readers, then you need to meet HubPages' standards. They set a high standard of English spelling and grammar, and your Hub does not meet them. You have a lot of mistakes.
One way to avoid that is to write your Hub in a word processing program like Word, with the spelling and grammar checker switched on. Then copy and paste into HubPages.

I have just written my very first hub! It is related to Travel and a special interest of mine, House Sitting. Perhaps it is a bit long, but I've tried to break it up into logical sections. I would appreciate any comments or suggestions on how I can make my hubs the best they can be.Thanks

For some unspecified reason, HubPages has chosen not to feature what I believe to be one of the bestHubs I have written. After learning that HubPages was not going to feature it without editing, I added a poll to see if that would do the trick. No success. It really would be nice if the...
