    Hi... I have tried altering my articles many times but they will not publish them and I am unable to figure out why. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    This is an example of an article I recently completed.

      If you've received an email from HubPages about your article, there will be a link where you can request feedback at the bottom. It contains a special url that will allow us to view your hub

        Hi... thanks for responding!

        I have emailed them and they returned an email sending me to a link to a guide which I read but nothing has changed despite me having all the 'check mark' boxes checked.

        Here is what I am seeing: https://www.screencast.com/t/q71ZsezgC

        thanks again

          No, sorry, I haven't explained properly. If your hub hasn't passed the Quality Assessment Process, they will send you an email, which should say, somewhere towards the bottom, 'click here to request help from the HubPages community'. I'm not sure of the exact wording. That will allow you to post a pre-formatted request for help here on the forum with a link that we, the Hubbers, can use.

          Go check your emails smile

      I looked at your article on Pregnancy and Lower Back Pain, which is one of those that got featured.  A few things I noticed are

      Your content is too unfocused
      Your title is kind of boring
      I don't see an introduction or a summary

      You seem to mix other issues in with your main topic. 

      Women who are pregnant don't want to read an article on back pain, they want to read an article that tells them how to relieve it!  You give great tips, but they get lost in the middle of the other details.

      You write really well, but you need to learn how to focus.  Although this article got featured, I suspect you are making similar types of errors on the ones that are not.

      Titles are extremely important, so you need to make them specific and interesting, and they must match the content.

      A lot of readers can benefit from your expertise, but they have to get the info before they can do so. 

      One more thing...all photos and ads should be wide body.  HP no longer supports those that sit on the right side of the page.  They also should be accredited properly and you need to describe what they are as well.

    It says the link is not available. I am new to this myself, but I would suggest looking at other articles that have been featured and make a list of traits that seem common among them. Or just look at an article you particularly like and see what it has. Everyone is going to have a different style, which is great, but there are bound to be some commonalities in articles that are published/featured: things like colorful images throughout the article, well-developed paragraphs, topics that a large number of people can relate to... just my two cents. :-) Good luck!

    Chirodoc, the most common reasons for rejection are:

    1.  The article is not original.  It can be an old article, but you can't publish an article on HubPages if it's already published somewhere else on the internet - even if you wrote it.

    2.  You include a link to your own business in the Hub. 

    3.. You include a link to a website or Amazon product which is not closely related to the MAIN subject of the Hub.
