    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub San Francisco (SFO) Airport with a Baby. What can I do to improve? Thanks!

    I removed Amazon links and any affiliate links.  I would appreciate any feedback.

    I think the out-going links might be a problem. Why would you want to send people away from your article when your goal is to get them to stay and read the entire thing?

    Also, TSA? I don't know what it is. You should always spell out the name of an organization in first reference and put its abbreviation in brackets afterwards. Then you can use the abbreviation.

    Hope that helps.

      I agree. The outgoing links are just about the only thing I can see that would hamper this hub. It is informative and useful. In fact, it might be better just to call it "Airport With a Baby," because most of this great advice is pretty much universal, not specific to San Francisco.

      The other thing that caught my attention is the bit at the end, the video about Pier 39 and local attractions. That is good information, but not  really relevant  to the airport article. After all, the people reading this would be flying away from San Francisco, not arriving there.

        Thank you!  Maybe if I incorporate the bit about local attractions in a separate hub, it will fly.  I can remove the links, I just thought they were beneficial because they had GREAT information regarding travel, but I don't want to send away traffic!

    I think the problem is that the article content isn't relevant to the title.  Most of what you've written is relevant to any person going through SFO airport, not specifically for people with babies.   So you're not sticking to your topic enough.

    If you include links they must be relevant to the TITLE of your Hub, so they have the same problem - if you  had linked to one restaurant that had special facilities for babies, you would be fine, but linking to restaurants when you're talking about babies doesn't work.

    I'd suggest writing a general article on how to cope with air travel with a baby, unless you are able to give some more specific baby-related tips for SFO airport.

      I am a little confused because I felt like it is pretty specific to SFO and to children.  Most items tie back to getting a car seat through the airport.  I also discussed transportation from SFO to downtown.  Maybe I should remove the general links?  Or make the focus on how to travel with children in SFO?  Car seats are not exclusive to babies. 
      Should I just remove all outbound links?

        Your title is babies at SFO airport.   That means your whole article has to be about "babies at SFO airport".  You can't take the two halves of the title and write about babies and SFO separately!

        What you've currently got is:

        1.   a good article of useful tips for managing a baby at ANY airport.
        2.  a separate article about transportation and tourist sights in SFO that have nothing to do with babies (except for one link).   

        You need to remove the restaurants link, unless you can find a list of restaurants that has specific information on which one has baby food, or high chairs, or other facilities for children. 

        You need to remove the transportation links unless you can give specific advice on how they cater for babies.

        If you want to keep the links to sightseeing in San Francisco, then you need to change the title to something about Vacationing in San Francisco with a Baby, then you can cover the whole thing from arrival at SFO through to sightseeing.  But you need to add a paragraph to each sightseeing link, to say why it's good for babies.

          Thank you so much for your feedback.  Would you split it into two articles?  It sounds like that's probably my best bet.

            As it stands, the first half is a good basis for a general article on babies at airports.  However it wouldn't be long enough on its own, so you need to beef it up.

            Alternatively you could use that first half and do some proper research to provide specific advice on SFO airport.  A glance at the airport's own website gave me lots of good information such as which restaurants have kids meals. 

            The second half is just a guide to transportation and a few San Francisco sights, stuff that people can find in lots of other places already - so no, I don't think that's worthy of an article in its own right, it's unlikely it would be approved.

    Hay I also want to ask a question that I am new here so kindly help me:-
    I have written articles and they are not published up to now. As I have also received mail that your first five article has to be passed through WHAT and after that your article will be published . This means that after that I can make money from than. And they also said that after that it will not pass QAT
    Tell in brief that will I be able to make money or not.

      Chirag, I have to be honest and say it is unlikely you will make money.  To be successful here, you must have fluent English, like a native speaker.  It's obvious from your post that your English is probably not good enough yet.
