I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article Fall Harvest Festival In Pendleton SC. What can I do to improve? Thanks!
Hi, OhMe. You've created a wonderful collection of photos and videos about the festival, but there isn't much written information in comparison to the graphics. HP wants a mixture of text and graphics in articles, so I think you need to add more writing. I suspect that some other problems are the promotional links to businesses and the Amazon capsules. The rules about using the capsules have become stricter lately. The items that we're selling are supposed to be directly related to the theme of the article. In addition, we are supposed to describe our experience with an item and our opinion about its value.
Thank you. This is actually our website for the festival and I will be adding more written information regarding vendor applications, etc. when it becomes available. I delete that information that was on there for last year's festival. I have kept videos and photos from previous ones mainly as a record . I'm really not that interested in selling anything so can remove the walking cane which I think is the only Amazon capsule I have on there but will check. Thanks again for your feedback. Since this is our main website for the event, I really need to get it published.
Well, my curiosity is piqued by seeing 'Pendleton, SC', I have family all around the area.
I'll be reading when I have the opportunity.
Hey, Nancy, how lovely to see you!
Definitely what Alicia said. The walking tour book is nothing to do with the title. HP wants articles to be really tight as far as the topic is concerned, and any Amazon ad has to be the same.
Reduce the number of subtitles and use that information as text/info. They are just too 'loud' and many are way too long. Instead, create new text capsules with the information presented clearly and logically.
Delete some of the links. They are also off-topic. Everything must be related to the festival, not to the sponsor's business.
You've got a random capsule on the Flip Camera. Take it out! I can see this format is based on a Squidoo lens, but HubPages wants clean and subtle nowadays.
You are referencing 2009 and 2010. Best edit those out.
Chairs and walking stick seats - begone!
I think you need to calm this one down. Your photos are great, but only include the absolute best quality ones. Be ruthless and edit them out. Get rid of all the extraneous and unnecessary stuff. No-one is going to be buying stuff from this article so you may as well delete the Amazon capsules.
If this were mine, I think I'd grab a sheet of paper and work out what information is important and interesting. I'd use a maximum of six or seven sub-headings and text capsules. I'd aim for at least 100 words in each, more if possible. I'd only include links that are directly connected to the festival itself and not the promoters or performers. I'd only keep one or two videos. And I'd try to reduce the page length of the hub by half (by getting rid of at least 50% of the photos).
Hope that helps. You've put so much work into it, it deserves to be featured.
Thanks. Makes sense. I have a lot of work to do. I appreciate your taking the time to provide this as this is very important to me. This serves as our main website for the event and I will be adding all the current information for the town when it becomes available. I am on the advertising committee and this has been a good way to get the word out. We are a small historic town of around 3,000 so this is a big event for us. Thanks again.
OhMe, I enjoyed looking at the pictures. This must be really lots of fun. I suggest that you organize the article under topics like what the activity is about, what are the planned activities for the day even without the schedule yet, the entertainment, the contests, the crafts, the sellers, the volunteers and how to volunteer. Those topics will serve as tags to even rank your article well.

Hi Hubbers,This article has not passed QAP. Though it has a higher score than my previous articles. I have had no input as to why it hasn't passed, I've proofread it and the grammar is spot on, photos are available for reuse or my own.. So WTF is wrong?!!I'd like some help with passing the Quality...
