I'd like feedback on my Hub: How to Make Your Rat a Varied Diet

    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub How to Make Your Rat a Varied Diet (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      Hi there,

      I can see several issues with your hub.

      Firstly, get rid of all the underline.

      Next add a proper introduction to the hub to tell the reader what the article about. Don't refer to 'this capsule'. Your readers won't know what you are talking about. It's an article. Not a hub. Not a blog post.

      Then delete the references to specific rat food manufacturers - you could end up being sued. Instead describe the food in a more generic way, such as 'food containing processed corn'.

      Make sure you write to the title of the article. There's not a great deal in there about a varied diet, apart from 'some other stuff'. How about the importance of a varied diet? What other nutrients they might need? You need to address the topic properly and in more detail. At least 1000 words of good, useful information.

      Don't advise people to give their rats chocolate. If it's poisonous to dogs, then it's likely poisonous to other animals (it's poisonous to humans too as it contains theobromine, but we're big enough to take it smile)

      Lastly, you have an Amazon ad, with no description, no reasons why you recommend it. It's a manufactured food, which seems to go against the topic of your article - varied diet. You need to go into detail why you think this is a good food.

      Hope that helps.

        Hi, I agree with theraggededge - underlining does not seem to serve any purpose.

        If you wish to highlight some part of the content, you could use a call-out box, or create a separate capsule, shift it to the right, add a background colour and bold the key points. Using bullets for presenting week-wise content could also look neater.

        Hope I have been helpful, thanks, regards...

          Good points, Jason.

          I'd also change the title to "How to Feed Your Rat a Varied Diet".

    Something has gone madly awry. When I click on the link I'm sent to "A Gemini Descendant Short Story: Child of the Lighthouse" an article that boasts less than 100 words and plenty of typos.
