I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article 10 Best Aquarium Ornaments And Decorations For The Fish Tank. What can I do to improve? Thanks!
Your article seems very old one with comments 5 years ago.
I think the Amazon products are too many on it. All ten included. You may need to remove some of them, at least half of them. And, give some more narration about each product bringing forth its real importance and tell how to arrange it.
Thank you. Yes, it has been a while since I have been active on HP and algorithms change. I might need to delete this and start again to get over the old comments but it is an evergreen hub (the products are still available) and I feel reluctant to do this.
What would you do if you were in my position?
Why? I told you to elaborate it. Provide the salient features of each product for which reason you are recommending those products. You must state why it is important for you. And remove the Amazon links keeping only the images already there. Each product is having two images there. You should remove the image in the product link. And, keep product links only 5 instead of 10. You can retain the information for all products. But, Amazon buy-now button should be removed for at least 5 of them retaining only the more important five buttons. They may even say to keep only 3 buttons. But try with five.
It's a good article.
I believe the Amazon products are the issue. They are too many. kinda looks promotional even though they relate to the title.
Also, hope the images r legal to use.
Yes, the images are legal and it was originally written to help inspire people.
So, am I right in thinking that HP are starting to drop Amazon, at the end of the day this is supposed to be the top 10, not 5 or below.
On reflection, I really need to change my old thought behaviours based on yesteryear's SEO information,.
Further comments are appreciated.
As an aquarium owner I got nothing from this article You can get decorations in different shapes, you provide no reason why those 10 re better than the other million or so options. Hubs now need to based recommendations on actual experience and I suspect you don't even have an aquarium?
You are my favorite Hixabrod.
Reference: "The story develops in the presence of a Hixabrod, an unerringly truthful species, settling a bet on a question of sentiment … with all-or-nothing stakes."
True, Psyche. I wanted to say that thing only but in a softer way in my above comment. I asked her to give some more explanation about its importance and how to arrange each one in a beautiful style.
I love the straight talker! I had an aquarium 5 years ago - when this hub was created but, alas, not now. I was trying to refresh this and use it as an experiment to update myself with how SEO is done these days. So, with trial and error, comments from people like you, I can move on and become a better writer.
More comments like this please! Thanks x
This subject is your specialty, I can see. No wonder I can't teach you anything! lol #wink#
The thing is, I'm not an expert. That is why the hub should teach me something. The "best" decor would be about whether they float, injure fish, are easy to clean alga off, are good plant anchors, benefit water quality--or any other factor other than just the shape they have. These are the things you learn by using them.
Sometimes I try to find a nicer way to sneak up on my point, but ... sometimes I don't.
Meanwhile, re: Aquariums.
Never buy old aquariums. Dried seams break; will break and flood. Add that if you haven't already.
I don't entirely agree with Venkatachari M.
As I said on another thread, my Basic Rules Hub explains exactly what the new Amazon rules are. However, in a nutshell, they are:
1. The products must be relevant to the title of your Hub.
2. You must say, either in the text or in the Amazon capsule, why you are recommending that particular make or model of the product.
3. You must couch that recommendation in personal terms (i.e. using "I" or "my" or "mine"). So for instance, instead of saying "Kids love this set", you'd need to say, "MY kids love this set".
Strictly speaking, HubPages says you must have personal experience of every product or book you recommend. In practice, they can't prove it.
This thread is informative https://hubpages.com/community/forum/14 … cts?page=4
Marisa, Thanks for reading my reply. I agree with your advice. But, do you allow 10 amazon products for one single hub like this? And, there are two images for each product in it.
I would like to propose some more feedback like that the personal experience of the writer may be covering tips for maintaining a large aquarium or a good number of aquariums that accommodated so many varieties of ornaments during some duration of time to have tried more different types and found these ones to be more appealing and durable. And to include some more interesting or useful facts that can appeal to the readers.

Thanks to Amazon being 2 months behind, I'll still get a good payout in October. After labor day though my earnings dropped like a rock (as expected) This months payout will still exceed $1200.00.. So during this unseasonal down time is when I edit and write more articles.. Hope HP hangs in there....

In all the time I've been writing on the web (first started on Amazon in 2004), I've never been any good at selling products on the web. I don't know why that is. I know people who make a packet at promoting products on the web. And I know there are people who make a good amount on HP even though...

Every time I put an Amazon capsule on my articles it gets snipped. I write how it benefits people and how it relates to the article.

I found some interesting questions from fellow hubbers and helpful answers from kind hubbers. I will go through those again if when I encounter the same problems. However, I couldn't find an answer to what I am so frustrated about.The HubPages video on Vimeo: "How to use the Amazon Capsule on...

You have used it (of course not possible always)4. Any other....Hey its not a poll, i have just given a few instances...

Hi all,Are there some Amazon products you can't sell (because they're through a 3rd party)? I found some really cool Japanese clothing to sell (e.g. loose socks) but the capsule wouldn't recognise that product. Maybe I could put in a direct text link or something.
