    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub Offshore Jobs in Louisiana (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      Hi there,

      Not sure why you have linked to your own hub in the first few words. Best remove it.

      Have you personal experience of working offshore Louisiana? Have you applied for any jobs there? Because your bio doesn't seem to say so. How can you pass yourself off as an expert on the topic? If you are simply recycling content you have found on the web, it means you are competing with the sources of your information. You can't be offering any new information or personal experience that could help someone.

      Many grammatical errors right through the hub. You can fix them by running your text through an online grammar checker, such as Grammarly.

      Too many pointless adjectives, 'excellent', 'amazing'. They don't mean anything, neither do they add to the writing.

      You have inserted your keywords in an obvious fashion. It doesn't work like that any more. Underlining, emphasizing and artificially linking them won't help because it looks like spam. Use them naturally, perhaps two or three times throughout the article.

      Your hub is generic, meaning that it is not specific to Louisiana. Apart from the keyword-stuffing, you have not mentioned the state once.

      You have cited your own article as the image source. This is incorrect. I'm pretty sure you did not take that photo. Also it could be any oil rig anywhere in the world. The image must relate to the article topic, specifically Louisiana. Make sure the image is legal-to-use. You can't take any image off the internet and republish it without permission or it having a CC license. Move the image up the page. There's no point having it at the bottom. It should be relevant to the text.

      Spend some time here: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/contents

      By the way, you have keyword-stuffed your bio, and it is not attractive. You can't say that you 'have created this web'. You can't do that on HubPages. You can only write stand-alone articles, with perhaps some internal links, if they are related topics.

      Hope that helps.
