    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article 10 Amazing Herbal Teas. What can I do to improve? Thanks!

    There are millions of "health benefits of herbal teas" type articles on the internet. The big question you have to answer is how is your article going to get ranked above the others on Google? Sorry, but I don't have the answer to that.

    The link to another of your articles might be causing a problem; HubPages doesn't seem to like this much.

    Also the Amazon capsule may be an issue. HP is very strict about the need for people to have personal experience with products they recommend.

    I think you've understood my advice NOT to use headings on photo capsules and Amazon capsules, unless the photo or Amazon product are the start of a new section.  Just to be clear, when you use the "Capsule Subtitle" line at the top of each capsule, you're saying to Google, "I've finished talking about that aspect of the topic, now I'm going to start talking about something completely new". I think where you're confused is how to handle other headings.

    For instance, I can see you've used the "Capsule Subtitle" line in your photo capsule, to start a section on a new kind of tea.  But then, you use that line again in the next text capsule, when you're still taking about the same tea. That's not a new section, is it?  It's still about the same tea, so it should be a SUB heading.  You create those by typing the heading INSIDE the text capsule, highlighting it, then choosing "Heading 3".

    That same issue has caught you out with your Amazon capsule.  You've followed the rules by adding some information on why you recommend the tea - the problem is that you've separated it in a separate section with its own main heading.  It looks like the "benefits" section is just about Gingko Biloba tea in general, not specifically about that brand of tea.  So get rid of the heading in the text capsule, so it's clear the "benefits" belong to the tea.  I'm sure the Amazon capsule is the problem.

      Thank you Marisa. You have explained it so clearly that I finally understand it. So good of you to go to all the trouble. I will have to check quite a few hubs.
