I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article Four Brand New Hilarious Stories You Might Haven't Heard Yet. What can I do to improve? Thanks!
Golfwell, here are my suggestions:
1) Think of or shorten to a less-awkward title. "Four Hilarious Golf Stories" for instance.
2) Remove the extra white space between some capsules and add headings. Giving each a story a name would help organize your Hub.
3) I wonder if calling them "jokes" might work better than "stories", as each is quite short.
4) Speaking of, length may be an issue. What's your word count? Try for at least 700, maybe create some sort of introduction on where you got them, or simply add more stories.
5) Some pictures are just a smidge blurry. Captioning them might be smart too.
Best of luck, and thanks for your work, I enjoyed this more than most QAP Hubs I review.
The problem is, this material has been published elsewhere on the web. Therefore, it is duplicate content. Worse, it might be plagiarised. Both are against HubPages ToS.
Articles on HP should be original.
Hmm, before I waste time giving advice to stolen material, how do you determine whether it's duplicate content?
You copy chunks of it into Google You can often tell whether it's been copied. You get a feel for it. Sometimes the style changes within the article. You'll get a well-written section within a less-good article.
In this case, the title gave it away
I realise some people just don't realise they can't do it, but as a writer, it drives me mad when people think they can make money off someone else's efforts.
If you are presenting material as factual you have to cite a credible source; that Philippine aircraft robbery has the ring of an urban myth to me.
Your title is a grammatical mish-mash.
You can't lift images off other websites without permission.
And, as Bev points out, stealing material from elsewhere is just plain wrong. You might as well dip your hand into the original writer's wallet and take his money.
If it's been published elsewhere it can't be "Brand New" as claimed in your title.
Jeremy. I wouldn't bother. The content is sophomoric and not worth wasting your time reading. I speak from experience. The "joke" about John Daley might even be actionable.
