    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article How Humidifiers Can Maintain Beautiful and Youthful Skin. Choosing the Best Humidifier. (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!

    There are a few grammar errors in your article.

    "Human's body is made of 70% water." It should read The human body is 70% water. However, the statement is also not accurate; the average adult male is 60% water and the average adult female is 50% water.

    "Our skin can lose half a liter of moisture in a day and about a litre in cold weather." Either liter or litre is fine, but you should use just one, not both.

    "There's a nice way somehow (drop the word somehow) to improve home humidity by installing an aquarium or an indoor fountain."

    Try using free software such as Hemingway or Grammarly to pick up errors.

      I'm so grateful for your help! If not you, I'd never noticed these almost imperceptible errors in my article.
      Thank you for the hints.
      How to check copyright images? I'm hoping my photos are free.

        Where did you get your images? If you took them off of Google images or lifted them from another web site you do not have permission to use them. Images are available and free to use at websites like Pixabay. Make sure the images are creative commons and for commercial use.

          Hi! I've corrected everything and again my article is not published. The problem with photos, as I guess. Yes, one photo is off Google. Thank you!

    You can use Pexel.com or Pixabay.com for "free" copyright photos and give credit under source. As I recall, Pexel.com has quite a few pictures of hummingbirds.

    I'm desperate! I've changed my article and took photos from Pixabay.com and again the article is not featured. What's wrong with him?

      It is looking a lot better but still looks a little thin (short, not much information). Type the title of your article into Google and look at the top three articles about humidifiers. What are they saying that you are not? You should not copy them, but I think you will see that they have a lot of info that you do not.
      The article tends to drop off abruptly after you discuss what type of humidifier to choose. Could you include a bullet list of 10 reasons that I should go out and buy a humidifier today? If you cannot, why should I (the reader) even bother?
      Good luck with this.

        Thank you for your thoughts. I'll do my best.
        It seemed to me that it was enough of info. I don't want to make people tired by reading extra long articles.
        My hub score is decreasing because of discussion of the article?

          Do not worry about your hub score. It has nothing to do with your page views nor with how much you earn here at HP.
          A long article that contains all of the information about this subject will have a better page rank from Google than a short article. If your reader does not want to read all of the words, he or she can skim the article. That is why it is so important to present your text in capsules (with clear subtitles) and lists that provide valuable information.
