What is required in order to have a "compliant" page?
I have seen suggestions on what would make a good page, but I would love to see a simple list of the bare minimum requirements for a "compliant" page. I have been searching for hours and cannot find this information. I am working on my 300 squidoo lenses that were just transferred over. I would prefer to only have to update them once. Thank you for any help you can provide!
Have you checked out the criteria for a "stellar hub?" you can find it in the Learning Center. It's a very basic and helpful guide to follow, even if you don't meet the high-end of all criteria. Also, when you update your hub in edit mode, you will see guidelines in the upper right corner under "Need Goals."
My basic suggestions are: excellent grammar, spelling, and sentence structure; excellent formatting which includes lots of texts capsules/sub-titles to break up content and lots of paragraphs to break up text; good use of capsules to include visually appealing photos; and a decent word count, depending on the type of hub (informational hubs are usually longer than recipe or poem hubs).
Thank you very much for responding! I am okay with the writing. I am really wondering more about logistics. How many amazon/e-bay/YouTube/outbound links we can have? Is there a required number of words for amazon? Do we have to have quizzes and maps?
Trial and error, see what works and what doesn't, over time, measured by QAP ratings and traffic. What works best in terms of format and logistics will vary from hub to hub.

I've spent an hour clicking through hubpages. I cannot find a list anywhere of what is required for a lens to be in compliance. Could someone please kindly share a link or list so that I can find out that info? Thank you so much!

Is there any benefit in putting text in different capsules ?Is there any difference in page view and ad placement?

Not that I was making any money from them, but why has my directly related Amazon product link been snipped in the hub-pro edit ?I could understand snipped competitor products, but what is the point of having ebay / amazon capsules if they are being removed from the niche sites?

Today I noticed that when I click on the 'go right' arrow in Amazon capsules, it brings me to the top of the page and I have to scroll down to the capsule again to click on the 'go up' arrow to place it next to a text capsule. Is this a glitch/bug? I can't recall I had this problem earlier and...

As a person who has devloped several sites and works with the web, I am very disappointed in the "Start a new hub format page". Everytime I try to start something on that page it keeps saying something stupid and it never allows a simple easy process to let you work through. YOu need a...

I've been looking at the Latest Hubbers and doing a lot of HubHopping lately and noticed a pattern. Based upon some of what I have seen I am making some suggestions. I'm sure HubPages staff and moderators see all sorts of patterns to spam and poorer quality Hubs.Here's some suggestions...
