Question about hubs not being featured
So I had a hub that has had a lot of views and is growing everyday but it was not featured due to quality. Can some one explain that to me?
Featured hub actually is the hub which is accepted by HP, the hub is not featured doesn't qualify for HP quality assessment process and in reality it is not a hub though it is still published and you need to put this question in forums instead of question answer section and in forum discussions you can get guidelines by fellow hubbers that how to make a hub featured.
Besides, good quality content add maximum features like videos, photo, table, quiz, polls etc. to the hub to make it featured.
HP has found the quality of your Hubs to not be sufficient. I looked at your Hubs, and can offer this advice:
- You write more creatively than I do which is superb, but their are some minor technical nuances that HP will dock you for in the grammar area. If you want your score to increase run your hub text through an online grammar corrector such as this free one here: http://www.onlinecorrection.com/
- The way a hub is presented visually has a large impact on your score as well. Try splitting up your large paragraphs, and add creative photos.
- Make sure all of your photos have a "creative commons" license or similar, and apply credit to the photo owner along with the link where it was taken from.
These are just a few quick tips after brief scan. It takes awhile to learn what works and what doesn't.
The best way to learn is to check out the articles in the learning center:
You can also check out the "Quality Assessment" charts to see how hubs are scored.
I've been using Microsoft Word. Is my grammar still off? And what do you mean by creative commons license? My largest paragraph is 300 words is that too big? Thank you for explaining this to me. I greatly appreciate you taking time to do this.
Frank, I only scanned it very shortly as I am multitasking right now. I picked up a comma error, and it may be the only thing - I'm not quite sure. I'll send you a message privately.

Was it the tacky photoshop pic of Palin, obnoxious YouTube video, using the "s e x" word, or too personal? Advice please.

Today I find two hubs have gone unfeatured for lack of engagement - the half circle symbol. This seems odd as the 30 day traffic is 78 and 89, they have 48 and 82 comments and score 83 and 100 respectively. Has there been a change I'm unaware of? Anyone else getting unexpected...

Hi all,I've been here a year now and had 60 hubs featured in a row since I started. Just now I received notifications that the last two hubs I submitted were not being featured. The first of the hubs I was given the boilerplate that it may be because it contained spammy elements. The hub was about...
