    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article How to Cook the Filipino Dish Biko Latik. What can I do to improve? Thanks!

    Note: initially it was featured and I had an invite from an editor to place the article on Delish - he asked for 2 points to be done, move the instructions higher up and change the article to a single person, both of which were done.

    As soon as I did the task requested my article lost it's featured status.At the time it was my highest scored article at 70 and I have other articles featured with lower scores so it does not make any sense!

    The big thing is to write to your title, but you start out with a geography lesson.

    There are grammar issues

    "Rice in the Philippines is the stable (the word you need is staple. A stable is where horses live) food source, it is as important as bread or potatoes are too (should be to not too) the west."

    The fan dance video is off topic and needs to be cut.

    Besides working on the grammar issues that Rupert points out, I also want to point out something about traffic,  impressions, and bounce rate.
    If I was looking for a recipe for Biko Latik, I might open yours, find information that should be on your profile, and bounce out of there because I did not see the recipe. When someone visits your page, does not find the info they want, and then bounces back and finds a more useful page, Google notices and gives your page an even lower position on the search pages. This means that your hub will have even less traffic. Those people that bounce out are not going to count on your impressions, and thus you will earn nothing from this article even if it does make it to a vertical site.
    Move your important information to the top of the article. If you feel it necessary to discuss you life, move it down lower so that anyone who wants to read it can, and those that are not interested...

    The Philippines have 101 million people as of the 2015c estimate, so you've researched well. However, your grammar needs improvement. As Rupert and DrMark1961 have stated, I could look up the same recipe in another site. What you want is 1,000s of views, not 10s of views. What you need is a new spin on a topic that's widely covered. Instead of saying "How to Cook the Filipino Dish Biko Latik," Try writing something along the lines of "Step-by-step instructions needed to make the Filipino Dish Biko Latik" , list the ingredients in detail, the amount of each ingredient needed to make the dish, how to mix it, and at what temperature needed to complete the dish. That's what a professional article should have. Just work on it, your grammar, spelling, punctuations, and everything else, and your article will be a smashing success.
