    How do I find out why my proposed (FIRST) HUB is unpublishable?

    I submitted a Hub, then offered an explanatory comment on why I was putting this Hub forward.  It came back that the Hub didn't have enough information--but I can't figure out what it needs, or how to submit it..

    I am not sure. It happens to me sometimes. But when I first submit an article, I make sure the language is correct, no mistakes in the grammer, as little typos as possible, and the structure is balanced, there is a beginning, a middle and an end if you like. Of course writing Hub articles is not really like articles we used to do back in school, but they have to keep the reader engaged, flowing from one paragraph to another. If the info is insufficient add more meat, think about what you want to put forward, visualize and construct the Hub in your mind and then begin to write it down within a logical framework, like the above. Hopegully, it will work. Pick up and nice headline.

    If  understand you clearly, the reason your hub was unpublished was because of "not enough information". That could be low content quantity which makes it low quality. Try extending your hub to 400 or so words, at least 300. If you can't find enough words to write your article about I would suggest you writing about something else.

    One of the art of content writing is content fluffing....and this is trade secret. If you have specific info about a subject that doesn't meet quantity criteria, fluff that info. Turn one sentence into one paragraph without going off course. So 5 sentences could give you 5 paragraphs which could mean 5 x 60 words = 300 words.

    Usually a Hub that is substandard has grammatically errors or has content that  is not succinct with the topic.  Also providing insufficient support for the Hub will result in a substandard message from the Hubpage staff.

    Adding more quality content to the Hub makes the article more favorable to get published.  If you just want to have the article published after checking for grammatical errors and you deem  there is no need to add additional content, look into using another writing site such as Yahoo Contributing Network.  That particular writing site accepts  quality content but only requires a word count of from 300 to 400 words.  Joining is simple, free and easy.

    Some thoughts:

    Do you know how many words your Hub contains? (If you type your article in Word, you can see how many words are in your Hub.) Perhaps your Hub is too short.

    Do you have too many images for the amount of original text?

    Why was it necessary to offer an explanation to HubPages as to why you wanted to publish the Hub?
