    Could anyone help me detect the presence of' spammy elements ' in my hub ?

    My hub ' Men v Women Their Superiority Question : the Riddle cracked ' has failed to win the label ' featured ' for what reasons HubPages Team have not clarified. Maybe it's what are called ' spammy elements ' present in this hub which are to blame for its failure to be reckoned ' featured '. But I cannot detect them. For this reason, I should like you to oblige me with your kind help to detect them.

    Since it is unfeatured we are unable to view it. This article from the learning center should help you improve your hub. … y-of-a-Hub

    Why not ask HubPages staff directly and receive the proper answer? Write to They never fail to answer questions for me.

      HubPages team want me to come to this forum and seek your help in this matter. I've edited my profile. Now all my hubs are visible on my profile page. Have a look at the hub at issue and say something helpful, will you ?

    Your hub will be visible if you go to you "edit my profile" and toggle the "Show only featured hubs on my profile" to "No". Your hub can also be accessed by looking through your activity tab.
    I tried to read your hub and have to admit I gave up, as much for the content as the writing. I agree you need to contact HubPages and talk to their editors. A few things I will comment on though are the use of all caps in your writing and the excessive use of bold words. All caps should be used rarely, if ever, and bold should only be used to emphasize. The titles that introduce each section should be attention grabbers, not whole sentences and the title itself is way too long and covers three separate topics.
    I don't think the spammy elements are to blame, you just need to polish your writing a bit. One of the things I do is read my stories out loud. No one has to be listening and sometimes it's better if no one is but when you read it aloud you can hear where your words are not flowing smoothly. If you have to stop and go back to repeat a sentence, that sentence is probably poorly written or has words in it that don't fit your thought processes. The words you use have to be words you're comfortable with or they'll sound forced and false. Just keep going over what you've written until it sounds right. Not silently but out loud. Good luck...

    In general, it can result from:
    * too many links to external sites including in the photo attributions
    * too many links to product names and company names
