    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article Learn to Navigate Life's Relationships (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      Try and use unique and headlines, instead of headlines such as 'Introduction' and 'Family' more than once. Your headlines should break up the main points of your article so someone could skim through it, while also gathering some of the main points. But don't give everything away in the subheaders, you want your readers to read your content, not just skim! Hook and bait, all throughout the article, not just the first sentence.

    Hi, Madoline!

    There are a lot of different themes going on in your article. I think your best bet here is to start fresh with an article about nurturing just one kind of relationship. Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People" is an awesome book that you've included in your hub.

    You could use that book as inspiration for an article that deals just with the relationships between coworkers with ideas from the book that include "how to get along with difficult coworkers" and "how to impress your boss". These are also highly searchable terms.

    Another thing you're going to want to do to pass the quality assessment is to include high quality photos that you have the right to use. This could be photos you've taken yourself or stock photos from free sites like Unsplash.

    Last, I think you need to proof-read your article once or twice before hitting publish to make sure that your grammar and spelling are correct. It's all over the place in your article.

      Thank you so much for your help! I am having such a hard time with this.The purpose of the article is to introduce teens to the different kinds of relationships they will encounter and to provide resources to learn how to make those relationships healthy. Is this not a good fit for Hubpages?

      All of the photos in the article should be fine as they are creative commons or my own art. I am not sure what is wrong with them, and that is where I am stumped. Does Hubpages provide more information than "high quality" and "right to use"? Things like resolution or size?

      I don't see any grammar or spelling errors in my article, and I have read through it about a hundred times. Plus, I use Grammarly to help alert me to any issues. I have also had several other people proofread for me and they didn't see any issues. Where can I get more information specific to what the reviewers are finding that will help me move in the right direction?

    My guess is that the main thing stopping your article get featured is the Amazon capsule and the number of links to other sites. If I was you I would cut most of these out and see if it helps. You should generally try and make your article self contained- the idea is to keep the reader reading your article (so you earn from their views), not to lose them by sending them to lots of other sites, so you might need to rethink your approach.

    I don't think grammar is stopping you get featured, but I find the article hard to follow. I think you need a clearer introduction and sometimes you could use fewer words to say the same thing and get across your meaning more clearly.

      Thank you! I'll try restructuring and see what happens.
