Does Hub pages have any standards at all for quality of writing?
I've worked a long time on my writing skills, and while it is not perfect, it is readable. I have been hub hopping and am finding hubs that are barely coherent. Is this okay with hub pages? Many are nothing more than diary entries. Not sure if this is okay.
As you can tell by my grammar typo above--you can see my skills ARE NOT perfect---LOL
Thousands of hubs are unpublished each week for containing low quality content. Enforcement of quality standards depends upon readers flagging low quality content. The moderation team doesn't take down content simply because it contains a few grammatical mistakes. Hub content should be easy to read for native speakers of English, and not contain formatting that causes the content to be confusing or difficult to read. For example, hubs written entirely in capital letters would be considered "poorly structured."
Diary entries are not permitted on HubPages, and should be flagged using the "purely personal" option.
Absolutely. My very first hub was just an intro about me and what I was planning to write about, and it was short and there was only one picture. Hubpages unpublished it (I still have it if I want to edit it) because it was low quality. Basically, they don't care about grammar and stuff, but they do want the hubs to be well organized, fairly long, and interesting.
I'll take barely coherent over the drivel the so called top hubbers write. I mean how much of that sterile crap should we be subjected to? And they get paid!!
Its because there are many scams going about. Don't worry with time it will fix itself.
Hubpages is looking for original content, not blogs about your personal life.
Hubpages does not... But the Hubpage member community sure does. If you want to be successful, consider the best way to win the respect and admiration of your fellow hubbers. Most are very intelligent and will see right through a facade, so be sincere!

Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and all this to no avail. The HubPages Staff continues to deem my hubs do not...

Google panda is basically a major tweak in search engine algorithm. Its aim is to push the quality web-site up and lower down the ranking of low quality content. Unlike all previous update, Google panda is a domain level penalty. It means even if you have 5-10 low quality content in your site, your...
