    Hi Hubbers,

    I Can't understand why my article is unfeatured. I edited it 6 or 7 times till now. And, every time, I receive the same message "A Friendly Heads Up..."

    My mistake was to add 2 more text capsules for Rasam Powder preparation that I recently learned from one of my relatives and succeeded in making a good quality powder to prepare the dish more tastefully. Besides that, I changed the Title and sub-titles also to make the whole hub appealing.

    But, the result was it getting the unfeatured status.

    Will anybody of you please give some feedback on how to get my article featured again?Rasam Recipe Without Tomatoes- South Indian Rasam Recipe and Rasam Powder- Health Benefits.

    What can I do to improve? Thanks!

    The article is currently featured on HubPages.

    Do you mean it is has not been moved to a niche site? If so, the reason could be there is too much competition for this topic. When I searched google for rasam recipes, over a million results appeared.

    I do see some additional edits, Venkatachari.

    Lighten the title. Maybe: South Indian Rasam Recipe Without Tomatoes

    Present the recipe and how to make it first. This should include the tips, shortened. Integrate the images. Delete the water image. Directly follow the written recipe, images, and directions with the video.

    Now you may include the health benefits and nutritional information. Include who benefits here as well.

    The language uses can go last. This is interesting, but not necessary for the recipe.

    Overall, the grammar is okay. A few changes can be made to avoid word repetition and better preposition choice.

    So, mainly I recommend fewer words and different organization. See how that works.

    I'd love to help you more with edits, but I'm using a Kindle, which limits input efficiency.

    Wishing you every success!

        I previously shortened the title by removing the words Health Benefits and also the repetition of Rasam Recipe 2 times in it. But it caught up again I didn't locate it until you pointed out the fact. Thank you for pointing out this grave mistake. I removed the water image also and edited some other words and resubmitted it again. Let me see what happens now.

    As on today also, my article is not featured.

    I edited it many times. I removed some content which might be irrelevant. Changed the sub-title of Health Benefits of Rasam to "Interesting Facts" and removed some points to make it more general; so that no authentic proof is required to claim my facts. It is my own experience that I shared.

    I am unable to understand the problem with it. Is it because of 1090 words only? Or any images? I do not find any grammar mistakes after checking it with my word document. Any help please?
