    Hi Hubbers,

    This has been cleared for publication 6 times and each time hours or minutes later comes back not cleared.  I have no idea at this point- I have taken suggestions and put them in place- there are no links- maps- nothing- everything is sourced- and all images and video have the clear use/community sharing thing.  I am at my last nerve with this post- please help!
    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub What Therapy Group is Right for You? (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      I can't see anything wrong with it at all.

      The first kind of group - the task groups - at first sight they don't seem to have much to do with therapy. Why don't you bring the more well-known types to the top and drop the task groups down. Also, you don't need all those images, try getting rid of the generic ones.

      Otherwise, I think you need to contact a staffer and ask them to take a look.

      This looks like an interesting topic. May I make a suggestion?

      Your bullet points could be defined more specifically. For your subheading under Task Groups, for example. Use complete sentences to open the paragraph.

      Task groups are generally used in businesses to address difficulties in completing work and to address  issues such as:
      - Motivation
      - Harassment
      - Communication and
      - Cultural barriers.

      And so on with the other bullet points. Powerpoint presentations in the corporate world allow the speaker to add detail orally. Not so on hubs. You could add more detail under each category within the bullet points to define how task groups address each of these issues.

      it looked alright for me, maybe you can add in some more of your own pictures and the bullet points

      It's got great content, which is the number one thing that matters. I suspect the bullet-point format is tripping a filter... It's a pain, but you could try putting them into sentences instead. It's really the only thing I can think of.

      I definitely would lose the bullet lists and make paragraphs of them.  A small bit of listing is good, but this hub is almost all lists.

    It looks a bit like the Corey book is your on;y source?  That might present intellectual property issues if you are just rephrasing their material rather than synthesizing material from multiple sources.

    You should also remove mention of what is "up next" as each hub is intended to be free-standing rather than a blog where some posts are 'earlier' than others/  if you want to link between hubs do it based on content.

    It seems to me that your ultimate aim is to promote your business at hxxp://www.kccounseling.net/. HP is not about the promotion of businesses, it's about providing useful info.

    If that site is not yours let us know.

    I thought Pixabay was whitelisted - but just in case it's not, remove the URL in the source box for each photo.  It's fine to say Pixabay is the source but there's no requirement to link to Pixabay and the multiple links may be causing a problem.

    Is the video about Group Therapy?  If not, maybe it's considered not sufficiently relevant.

    I agree - there's no point in saying "up next!" because there is no mechanism to allow people to follow you on HubPages, unless they are a member (in which case they're a writer, not a reader). 

    Finally, as Will points out, we're not allowed to write Hubs specifically to promote our businesses. The fact your username is a business may lead the moderators to assume that's what you are doing.

      I source Pixabay all the time with no problems.  It definitely is on the white list.
