    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article Top Infographics Generation tools that won't cost you a dime (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!

    There are some grammar and punctuation problems with your article. Here's one passage with corrections in brackets.


    "Increase traffic to your blog or website. When you include Infographics in your posts; (should be a comma not a semi-colon) readers will be more interested to visit (in visiting) your blog and therefore your traffic will increase. Also if you have your own message, Data (data not capitalized) and numbers that (are) worth sharing with other people then you can build your own Infographics. But Can (can) you? And How (how) much it will (will it) cost?"

    A free program such as Hemmingway or Grammarly will help you with some of these issues.

    It's not clear whether or not you have permission to use the images. They must be Creative Commons licensed.

    I cannot speak as to the content because it's a field in which I have no expertise.

      Thank you so much Rupert for taking the time to review my article. its really appreciated and you are really helpful.
      I will use Grammarly and go through the article from begging. I do understand that I could have grammar and punctuation and I guess Grammarly would be really helpful.
      For the images, I am getting those through Flicker but I am not sure if those are creative Commons Licensed. I will double check on that.
      Once again I am really grateful for your help and its nice to meet you.

    With Flickr you enter your search term, say "bus" and click enter. In the left in the grey area a drop down menu appears titled "Any License." Click on the down arrow and click on "All creative commons." This filters out copyright-protected material. Pixabay is also a good source for copyright free images.

      Hi Rupert, Thanks for your detailed information. I have figured it out on Flicker and removed the all reserved license images I was using and replace it with copyright free images from Pexels. Pixabay seems to have a lot more images than Pexels. I will bookmark it.
      Thanks once again.

    What does it mean to have the article status as published and the feature status as Not Featured - Quality. Does it mean that the article is published on Hubpages only and not available for search engines to index?

    I got it wrong, this was the status for few minutes just before they send me that it didn't pass the test

    I have used 3 applications to check the spelling, I tried to make the hub simple and easy to read but still I am not able to get the hub published and its still needs improvement. I don't understand what exactly needs to change for the hub to get published. Any help, please. I have been working on this hub for over a week now.

    Your infographic (social media demographics) might be a problem. According to Flickr, it's fine to use it the way you've done BUT according to the infographic itself (printed at the bottom), it's ALL RIGHTS RESERVED and copyrighted by DOCSTOCK.INC - not the name of the person who uploaded it and not the CC  (some rights reserved) license indicated on Flickr.

    Even if that's not a problem, HP doesn't like that kind of copyright info appearing on images. As with watermarks (which aren't allowed at all), HP feels it detracts from the image content. So even though this image isn't watermarked and the copyright info isn't obtrusive as it's at the bottom, HP still might not like it.

      Thank you so much for your feedback. I will change the image and see if this is the problem. anything else you have found that might be a problem.
      Thank you again for your time checking my hub.

        Ok - that didn't work, I see. Here's something else to try:

        The term "infographics" is not a proper noun. It's just a common noun, so don't capitalise it within the text like you've done throughout the article. Also, as you're using the plural form 'infographics', change your first subheading to:
        What Are Infographics and Why Do You Need them?

    I really don't understand what I need to do to get this article published. I have read and followed all the comments mentioned here.

    I have also reviewed the hub and update it with more accurate information, more facts, updated the list of tools, added Videos related to the hub topic but still, the hub won't be published. In fact, I am not sure if what I am doing is improving the hub or making it worse as there is no indication and the only information mentioned is needs improvement. Is it always that hard to publish the first hub? Can I contact hubpages team to get their personal feedback on the hub or it's not possible.

      It's published now and accessible from your profile. Whether or not it stays published, we'll have to wait a while and see. Good luck - and yes you can email HP if it becomes unpublished again.
      Also - fix that sentence "What is infographics?" under the subtitle you fixed already "What are Infographics..." Actually, that's a redundant sentence and you could remove it". Also fix the same sentence in your photo caption.

        Yes, I did a minor change and I have republished it and I don't feel that it will stay published. Let us see if this time it's not published I will need to send email to Hubpages team as I have no idea what is exactly required for the article to be published.

        I will do the changes you have suggested now and hope for good. Thank you so much for your time.

          It's still published but I'm wondering why no ads are being displayed.

            After yesterday changed I have published it and it failed QAP. today I have republished it and its currently under QAP. Waiting for it to pass or fail QAP. Maybe this is why no ads are being displayed.
