How can I improve a hub that ticks all the boxes and still won't be featured?
My hub http://lenisands.hubpages.com/hub/A-lon … -continued is still apparently not of the right quality to be a featured item. It is a photographic hub - so wasn't meant to have an essay with it but does have well over 700 words...it is a photographic walk along with me type hub...any ideas on why it is not able to be a featured hub - any suggestions - help would be appreciated because I am now scratching my poor old head to bits....
My guess is because you have so many photos and the short word count. Perhaps HP can come up with a special template with it's own criteria for hubs such as yours as they have for poetry. I'm thinking if you added some more text, perhaps adding more descriptions of your photos (explain more about what they are) that would give you enough text to move up to featured status.
Yes, I think you are right. Hopefully Hubpages will come up with photographic hubs. The snag with writing a comment for each photograph is that ech photograph would have to be added separately and they are currently loaded in two bulk loads.No time

I am fairly new here. I was so blessed that my 4 new hubs were featured here, but then this hub entitled "Embrace Your Verdict" can't be featured regardless of many edits. Any help? Suggestions will be so much appreciated. Thank and God bless!

Slowly but surely more and more of my hubs are getting unfeatured. Does not really matter what I do, the result is always the same. Is it time to leave hubpages once each and ever one of my hub is unfeatured?
