It's the first article I've written to not get approved...
When I go to edit it, it is not telling me what's wrong with it.

There are a few grammar errors and typos. I suggest a thorough proof read.
Some of the images may have copyright restrictions. You need to be sure they are public domain or Creative Common licensed.
It's HubPages not Hubpages.
Sarah, I have a Hub on how to use photos legally. You should read it. It's rare to get prosecuted for illegal use of photos, but when it happens, the penalties are in the thousands of dollars - not worth the risk. The basic rule is that ALL photos on all websites are copyright (and therefore illegal to use), unless there is a statement on the website that says otherwise.
I can't see the Hub now, but a Hub "quick and easy way to boost HubPages Earnings" isn't likely to earn any money. The only people interested in such a Hub are other Hubbers, and the number of Hubbers who actually read each other's Hubs is actually quite small. So if you have an idea like that, it would make more sense to share it in the forums.
It's a common mistake for newbies to think that participating in the HubPages community is a way to make money. It's not. The community is a great place to learn how to write online, and it's also a great way to keep motivated, especially when you're new (it's also a great place to waste time when you should be doing some work, as I know only too well!). But it doesn't help you to earn income.
Try logging out and looking at the "success stories" on the front page (I assume they're still there?). I bet you won't recognise many names from the forums or Hub comments. They are too busy writing, and promoting themselves outside HubPages, because they know that's a more effective use of their time.
Virtually all the members of HubPages are writers. No one joins HubPages to read Hubs and very few people come to HubPages.com and browse around. HubPages makes over 90% of its income from visitors who come directly to a single Hub from Google.
Once, when discussing the definition of obscenity and what constituted pornography, Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart famously said: "I know it when I see it." The same can be said of spam. Whether or not a specific article fits the textbook definition, you pretty much know it when you see it.
Don't get me wrong, I think the substance of your article is great. The information is relevant and definitely of value to readers. The problem is with the presentation, specifically the number of images, their size, and the layout of the page in general. I think if you'd re-tool your presentation a little bit your article would have no problem getting approved.

I see that the Amazon earnings are now based on some kind of new sharing protocol. Can anyone please explain this new Amazon earnings program to me? Thanks!

My daily earnings have dropped drastically -- WHY? Is it because HP has pulled ads on my hubs due to the "unfeatured" hubs, which are mostly poems? Are poems not worthy of being featured and getting daily earnings? And WHY does HP decide what should or should not be featured?...

I have been a member of Hubpages for a while but did not understand the true value of it until recently; I began updating old hubs and every one updated so far has ended up featured. I hope to do the 30 in 30 once I finish updating everything. I would love to try it in July since June...

I have been on Hub Pages about a year and I have written about 27 Hubs and they have received close to 5000 views, which I felt was not bad and my status hovers between 82-88. Last week I had about 8 of my Hubs featured, which again seemed ok. Now magically overnight, I have all these codes now...
