Ive recently been working on an article which I submitted for niche sites. Essentislly it was approved but needed changes. I went through their dot points and suggestions and reworked it. They have said its good but editors will edit it before moving it. They said I can edit it further but if not enough editing is done, I will lose my place in the queue.
Im keen to see the reworked article but frustrated as it must be just some minor points now. They did say it wasnt 'organased' enough previously which I think is whats wrong with it. I know I refine it further but anyone care to weigh in ? https://hubpages.com/entertainment/Movi … fending-it
My first reaction - I suggest you read my Hub on "How to Optimize Your Hubs". You'll find it on the slider in my profile. The section on introductions is especially relevant to you!
It's important to keep in mind that although you'll get comments from other Hubbers, you are NOT writing for them. The vast majority of your audience will be complete strangers, who've found your Hub on Google. When they arrive at your Hub, you have a couple of sentences to grab their attention - if you fail, they'll click back to Google and find another review. So cut the waffle! If you want to tell readers why you chose that particular film, or anything else about yourself, save it for the end of the Hub.
For the same reason, I would move the Movie Specifications to the end of the Hub, and jump straight into "What's It About".
Your paragraphs are too long. You don't have to break them up with pictures, just break them up into more paragraphs. Obviously break where it makes sense, but a paragraph of more than ten lines is too long.
I would use a Callout capsule for your "ratings" ("I give it 3 dead rats out of 5").

I just got the "happy" news that one of my hubs about Cancer Moon Sign People has been moved to Exemplore. I don't feel happy, it was moved there months ago, and there was nothing wrong with it. It was...

I find that the time period is usually under a week. Once I had one go with no response for 3 weeks. Finally, I emailed the team and the next day it was approved. My last submission has gone 10 days without a...

Why do non-featured Hubs rejoin the pending queue when edited?I have one non-featured hub and anytime I edit it, it gets put back in the pending queue. Why is that? It doesn't happen with any of my other hubs, which all...

Does anyone know why some submissions to niche sits are approved in 24 hours and others go 3 weeks or more. I had one that took over 3 weeks , but was finally approved. I have another now that I have been waiting on for...
