I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article Book Quiz: - Which Country or Place?. What can I do to improve? Thanks!
I did not do well on your quiz! There were too many books on there I had not heard of. (I am looking for that next quiz on best selling international thrillers!)
To pass QAP, either eliminate or fix that Amazon capsule. The item has to be directly related to the hub and have a personal recommendation and only for items that you have bought.
Remove the Zazzle tshirt. That smacks of self promotion.
All of those links to your own hubs need to be removed. Links are only good if they are directly related to the title of your hub.
Your subtitles are way too long. They should just tell you about what is in the text below, not be so long that they are making a statement.
A lot to do? Good luck with this.
Thanks for your detailed help. I have cleaned up (but not removed) the Amazon Product, a Light, and shown a photo of my own one, and have removed several links to make it less self promotional.
I have also shortened the sub-titles.
I didn't remove the Zazzle shirt, but added a bit of text around the photo of my set of Dickens books which were pictured on the shirt, to make it relevant.
So in the spirit of answering your question to truly improve your article, 1) the summary and first "paragraph" are written using incorrect grammar with not enough information, 2) none of your pictures are active in the article and 3) the quiz is not available. In addition but not as important, the article is extremely short and fairly bland, and the one book you've discussed in your article was not a well known book. I did not have access to any of the other books you mentioned in the quiz. I hope this helps a little.
Thanks for your comments.
1) I didn't find any ungrammatical bits in the first paragraph, but I have changed the wording, so maybe there was something which caught your attention before I amended it.
2 & 3) I am not sure what you meant by inactive pictures, but anyway, I have added a lot more pictures and text so hopefully it's not so bland. I would just mention that, as it was a quiz rather than an article, I didn't see the necessity originally to turn it into a full-scale article.
Finally, I am surprised that you had not heard of Snow by Orhan Pamuk, as he won a Nobel Prize for Literature. However, the book would certainly not be to everyone's taste, as it was quite political.
Hi, Gloriousconfusion. I see that you've followed some of DrMark's advice, which makes the article look much better. Some problems still exist, however.
You link to your own article about Orhan Pamuk's book both within the article and later on.
The source link under the T shirt photo links to your Zazzle account and is promotional.
I agree with DrMark that you need to remove the Amazon capsule about the reading light, which isn't directly related to the theme of the article.
You link to your profile under the photo of the book cover, but since readers can reach your profile through the introduction at the top of the article this seems unnecessary.
I like the theme of your article and I love the photo at the bottom. (I did recognize some of the books!) The article and its quiz seem unbalanced to me, though. The first question in the quiz is related to the information in your article. You haven't introduced any of the other writers or works in your quiz, though.
Thank you for commenting.
I have removed most of the promotional links. I thought that linking to one's profile whilst mentioning the source of the photographs was the rule rather than the exception, so, although I have in fact removed them, I have done so reluctantly, bearing in mind that this has not been a problem in my other articles which have been sent to niche sites.
I have removed the second link to the Orhan Pamuk article, as suggested. And I have now put a bit more information about some but not all of the other books.
I went through your article just now.But, I feel it is very difficult to get the article featured unless you change it entirely.
The books are not so popular that anybody could have read. Only Charles Dickens seems popular among those authors. I have some of his books with me. So, you need to include some popular hit books to make it more worthy.
The title also lacks in its appeal to the audience. Make it more specific and attractive. You may provide some good reviews of interesting books that are sold worldwide.
