I have been thoroughly enjoying my time with HubPages. A few days ago, an editor with 'Spinditty' sent me the attached message for the following article:
https://hubpages.com/entertainment/30-H … f-All-Time
I've made the suggested changes with the video width and removing the Amazon link, but I'm unsure what the "Text Formatting" issue might be. I have been italicizing album titles and using double quotes for song titles; perhaps a different format is preferred?
Thanks so much!
The Editor who reviewed your article suggests that you address the following issues:
Only bold words and phrases that are essential to emphasize. Italics should be used for the titles of books, computer and video games, movies, and television shows but not to provide emphasis. Lastly, always avoid large blocks of text that are excessively stylized (bold, italic, underline) as they impede readability.
Additional Note From Your Editor:
We'd like to consider this article for Spinditty, but need to see a little editing done first. Can you expand each video to full width and make sure that the video for a song/artist is above the text for that person? Also, the surfing trunks product link should be removed.
OK, I think you can safely stop worrying about the formatting of the titles.
The email you've received is a standard email that everyone gets, except for that last "Additional Note". The Additional Note is what you need to address. The rest of the email may not apply to you at all - if the editor was really worried about any of those issues, they would've mentioned it in the Additional Note.
About the Amazon product - if you have other Amazon products like that on other Hubs, you will need to remove them. The new rule about Amazon products is that they must be directly related to the title of your Hub - so in this case, the only product I can think of would be a DVD of Canadian rock hits. Also, if you include an Amazon product, you must say something about why you, personally, enjoy or recommend it.

When submitting a hub for inclusion to a niche site, we're asked to make sure that we follow the APA guidelines, but there are some things that I'm still not clear about:The Title of the Hub:Does every word have to be capitalized? Yesterday when I got my new hub published it said some stuff was...

I like to write a lot of reviews (be it film, music, etc.) about things that are bad. I have a website that I use to help promote these hubs called Very Bad Reviews. As far as Hub titles go... I've been using this formula "Movie Review: (Title of movie)", but I'm considering switching to...

I've been with HubPages for 5 years now. I have almost 500 articles and the majority of them are featured. I publish quite frequently and follow all of the rules. I post my articles to facebook and pinterest, I am part of Amazon Associates, and yet I make very little money each month (nothing from...

Why is it that excessive links to Amazon products seem to be permitted when they are added to the body of hub rather than as a Module on the side? In my naivety, I did not realise that this was permitted. Will these links survive when hubs are selected and moved to the niche sites?

I first noticed this glitch yesterday. When in editing, each Hub transferred from Squidoo now says — A Hub with an earlier publication date already used this title.During the last several days, I have also seen Hub scores fluctuate wildly. One went from 92 to 78, and others also seemed to be...
