    How do I improve my flagged hubs?

    I don't understand why my hubs get flagged for being substandard. They aren't long but I find the reasons for them being flagged are extremely general. I know that they could use more work but I'm not sure where to start. Should I even bother to modify or resubmit my hub these hubs?

    Well I looked briefly at your hubs and typically a hub should be a minimum of 500 words (unless it is in the poetry category). Once in awhile a recipe can go below 500 words, but your articles are too short I think. If I were you, I'd write up a more detailed review, otherwise you are at risk for being banned from hubpages. That is just my (very new) two cents.

      I will try to add more but the review of mine that was flagged was very close to 500 words. I had no idea there was a minimum

    Having too many Amazon products can cause a hub to get flagged.  According to HubPages rules, each hub needs to have 50 words per Amazon product.  There's some more useful stuff specifically about Amazon here:

    Try adding more pictures, polls, videos, and other things that liven it up. I had the same problem too. My first hub got flagged 3 times before I finally got it right. Adding these things can make it look more interesting. Plus, people love answering polls, watching videos, and seeing pictures in a hub.
