I am a new writer to hubpages and I have submitted my first article on how to quit smoking addiction? a few days ago. The number of views to this article is not much, but it was featured two days ago. After editing some of the things, the article is not featured now. Please give me some valuable suggestions on how to make my article better and improve my writing.
You need to include a link. Here it is, which means it has passed QAP.

It looks like a very good hub. The Amazon capsules need to be integrated into the hub and not tacked on to the end. You must demonstrate in the text why the product is essential to the topic. It's also good if you can tell why you recommend it and how it helped you. One product is sufficient, otherwise you'll have to give a reason why you recommend two.
Your writing is fine, but beware of over-using certain words. For example you repeat the word 'addiction', or variations of it, five times in the first paragraph.
Put your title into title case.
Break up the text into more text capsules. That will give you the chance to use more subtitles, which search engines like.
It's a good idea to attribute your images to show you are using them legally.
Move the first poll further down the page. Don't lead with a poll - it can't take the place of a proper intro.
Good luck with it.
Your product recommendations seem kind of... I don't know... too sales-y. I would recommend NOT adding products until you get more used to the HubPages platform and what the HP staff "want" in a hub. Take a look at other successful hubs with product placement and analyze how those hubbers do it.
Your images are pixelated. That's a big no-no.
You have a question mark in your title but it is not a question.
Break up the text into smaller capsules.

Hi, Hubbers! When it's correct to use the Amazon capsules in the article? Recently, in my article "All about flying or paragliding with your dog", the hubpages editor have removed the Amazon capsule offering some canine harness suitable for paragliding. This is despite the fact, that the...

So, this is the third time HP has snipped Amazon from my hubs. Every time one of my Hubs is edited by HubPages to add to a network site they snip any Amazon capsules on the Hub. The Amazon capsule is always extremely relevant to the topic discussed and is not spammy, yet HubPages doesn't seem to...

Then I put them back in. Then it was unfeatured...

I have been updating my hubs, but almost all of the amazon capsules have been snipped (even if there is only one on the hub and it is directly relating to the article). I see that HP is limiting them, but is there a definitive rule that is being used to snip out the products capsules? I...
