Hi, My hub 'Car Airbags," https://hubpages.com/autos/Car-Airbags,
has been un-published. Could somebody please help. What can I do to improve
this hub. I feel that this is a helpful and informative hub as 'car airbags,' are important to save lives.
If it's been unpublished, we can't see it, Anita. You've also got a comma in your hyperlink, which won't work.
I suspect the problems are the same as in your other hubs.
Deleting Amazon capsules and links
Structure the hub correctly
Make sure you are not going off-topic.
Thanks for your reply. I have not gone off the topic, as the hub is all about car airbags. Grammar is correct. And why do I have to delete Amazon capsules and links?
Since this article is not available, I looked at another, the one on goose down. The title is misleading and has nothing to do with the subject of the article. That alone is deceptive and enough to get it unpublished.
If you want to write an article about a family that opens up a factory to process goose down, that is fine. The title needs to indicate that. If it does not, any reader that clicks on it is just going to look at the first few paragraphs and then bounce out. I suggest you make yourself familiar with what the search engines are looking for--misleading titles that have nothing to do with the article are not okay.
The article also had several Amazon capsules for things made out of goose down. The clothing has nothing to do with the subject of the article. (I cannot put an Amazon capsule for a dog bowl on an article about dog ear infections. Just because they are both about dogs is not enough.)
Thank you for your reply. The hubs intention was to inform the readers about goose down. The history of this firm, the benefits of goose down, as well as articles made from goose down. In fact I think goose down products are fantastic and superior to other products. If you think of the history of goose down, your own family most probably had a homemade comforter. Imagine those brave pioneers who travelled by wagons. They all had homemade goose down comforters. Even a new goose down comforter gives you such s feeling of comfort and luxury. Yes. I feel quite passionate about goose down products.
Your title is 'Processing Wild Goose Down'. The article is not about 'processing', it's about one company and its products. The first Amazon capsule is a child's duck down snow-suit. That is not related to the topic at all. Duck down isn't goose down. Most of the article is a sales pitch for end products; it is off-topic (the process of getting feathers from wild bird to usable material as per the title).
Another problem is that some of the product description has been copied directly off the Amazon site.
Your article must reflect your title. So you have to either change the article or its title. And, as I mentioned previously, it's likely that many off your hubs suffer the same inconsistencies, so they will be unpublished as HubPages continues its quest for quality control.
We are doing our best to help you here.
Anita, did you read my Hub on the Basic Rules? Like Raggededge, I suspect you've got the same problem with this Hub as with the others you've mentioned.
Check your links and Amazon capsules to make sure they're not against the new rules.
Thank you for you reply. Did not know there were new rules. I believe the rules state that the Amazon capsules have to be relevant to the content of the hub .
Anita, I'm sure I've told you to go and read my Hub on "The Basic Rules" at least twice now. You'll find it on the slider on my profile. You need to read it carefully and make sure you understand it, because it contains ALL the rules that editors insist on.
The Hub explains exactly what you have to do with Amazon capsules. It's more than just being relevant to the text.
I have just read your hub. Found very informative.

First off, my hubs are transferred from Squidoo, and I am aware of various issues there. I'd already checked and edited hubs after the transition, so this is all post transfer.What I don't understand is why some of my hubs get unfeatured after I've edited them? One even got...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

I just completed my first year on hubpages. Until recently, I haven't had any issues getting my hubs featured. Just a few tweaks coming from Squidoo and all was well, but recently with every hub I edit, I get a lovely e-mail from HQ saying, "Your hub could be featured . ....

I am yet to successfully publish any articles with amazon products. I am trying to be clear on the requirements for these articles. I thought articles should be limited to 1-2 products, however I have seen list based articles with multiple products (ideas for gifts) on niche site, Holidappy. Would...

Published a hub on Oklahoma (please don’t get started on how it might be too generic – I had fun doing it). It became the template for my following hubs on Arizona and New Mexico. The Oklahoma one published just fine. The Arizona and New Mexico ones are now Not Featured due to...
