Your article is probably not approved because your English language skills are not up to the required standard. The first paragraph is all one sentence.
You also include a self-promotional (not live) link.
can you point out specifically which promotional link is not live exactly ,
No promotional links are allowed, live or not.
really i think dozens of article has link ' actually it is called backlinks and for your knowledge mam , when i got a improvement message from hubpages before publishing it , it said i should only include two links pointing to any one domain , that mean's there is no restriction over using any links otherwise i must have got an improvement message again to remove any promotional link (backlink)
Okay, you must be right. I've only been here eight years after all.
sorry pardon , I also respect you but it's true that after i removed more than 2 links pointing to one domain , the message on my post sort of just vanished , and i was able to publish it finally ' but still have no idea about to get my article as featured one
You should have paid attention to what was said...your use of the English language is not adequate enough. I'm surprised your work even got published. However, it's unlikely it will pass on to a niche site. Google is very strict about sentence structure, proper grammar, etc. For example, the letter "I" is always capitalized when it stands alone. I don't even see this in your original post here.
Yes of course now the moderators who usually approve articles are not good enough as you ' and not just once but i guess more than 5 time's my article status was shown as 'Published' and each time iv'e had improved my article maybe they aren't good in english everytime they had reviewed my article as you , I think you should be replaced as a moderator and dude , not every website in google is a blog who should be written very neatly and grammatically ' it doesn't matter google is not strict google can recommend proper grammar but not strict and as an seo guy seo covers lot of another factors than just paying attention to 'I' word in any article .... check those ranking games, illegal websites been around there for more than 5 years and their grammar.
I don't mean to offend you but , you sound's like more than an admin of this website ' so rude and my article starts with 'W' word
The people giving you advice are experienced and successful writers here at HubPages. They are also kind enough to take time out of their day to help you out. I suggest you listen to them.
You should read their advice and then mine to properly understand that what is going on here ' the guy is blaming my grammar for not using 'I' letter in my article that seems a advice for you , read again and then blame me dude.
What do you want from us then? Why did you ask for feedback and help if you didn't want it?
sorry, mam actually I apologize, actually I didn't take it seriously and thought Hubpages don't take grammatical errors as a serious matter, anyway's again apologize for being rude and I already fixed grammar in my article according to your advice.
I would assume you are one of those SEO guys who has to hide under the table after every Google update because you use only black hat techniques to rank. You're definitely not ranking with On-Page SEO.
Thank you, if using one link that point to any site is a blackhat technique than GOD BLESS YOU cause you are really right , and google is stupid and hubpages admins are also not talented as you that let me add a external link.
I don't mean to be rude, but what's a novice like you doing in a sophisticated forum in the first place? Wait.....To annoy everybody?
You really need to improve your English skills. I will not look at your article because the last time I looked at one user's article, I got banned from the forums for making abusive comments. Pay attention to your peers. They can help you.
Brother I agree with you , i must need to improve my article ' but seriously some writers are here so rude because of their position and experience well you can read one of the above comment where one guy say's me he didn't see a capitalized 'I' letter in my article , tell me now does that sound's normal i think he trying to make me use 'I' letter unnecessarily in my article
If you do not feel the need to use periods or to capitalize the word "I" that is fine. If you feel a need to be an eecummings and blaze new trails I suggest you do it elsewhere. Open up a blog where no one will care how you choose to write.
Dude 'I' is used when there is a need, you cant expect someone to use 'I' letter
unnecessarily in any article
You need to go back and get an education if you plan on writing on a site that is in English.
https://english.stackexchange.com/quest … apitalized
As I said before (notice how the I looks in the sentence?), if you do not wish to follow these rules you can start a blog and write any way that you want.
its fine I already corrected it, but still English was not the main reason my article wasn't getting published it was the spammy elements and now it got published already
Small i is incorrect; capital I is correct. Fix it.
Writing with correct spelling, punctuation and grammar is more important for your earnings than keywords. Put your energy there.
AND STOP RIDICULING HUBPAGES!!!! It's not right. HubPages is constantly updating its rules with new and better ways to interact with people.
skysonwane: this is a writing site, so like it or not, grammar matters. A lot. If only for image.
He's not the first. He won't be the last.
They do add a little fun to the day.
Whatever the issue with links - live, dead, back, or otherwise - the quality of your English is not good.
A few examples:
"When it comes to features and design , (there should be no space in front of a punctuation mark) google (a proper noun should be capitalized - Google) products are alway's (no apostrophe it's plural not possessive) productive ,(space again) google drive (caps again) is so advanced cloud drive storage when it come's (comes not come's) to backups (singular backup) files or upload some personal stuffs (stuff) ..." and on it goes.
HubPages requires writers to produce articles in near-perfect English.
Ok I got it but the main reason for my article to get published was not this ' i know I had to improve my English as nobody is perfect in English but the reasons were spammy elements, anyways I'll improve my article by using Grammarly
No, not Grammarly. Last time I used it, it caused trouble in my hubs. You'll need a different approach to write English, in your own words, "much more better" than before. See, everyone makes mistakes. Even I make mistakes. When I first joined Hubpages, my hubberscore wasn't in the 90s. It was in the upper 70s through low 80s. I got that initial score because I was writing average articles. They're featured, but not in a way that satisfies me. Then, in June 2017, I discovered niche sites. My desire was an article inside a niche site. I didn't wait too long to discover that one of my articles has made it into a niche site. I was a proud writer. Then, during the course of several more months, I kept writing articles and they got promoted to niche sites. Now, 8 of my 26 active articles are on niche sites. less than half of my featured articles have hubscores above 80. Less than half of that have hubscores above 90. I don't know how they work. Keep learning English and don't give up. And please put on a profile picture, preferably your face. No one wants to see a mystery guy pop up and comment (I, of course, accept all comments, whether they're Democratic, Republican, or Trumpist, even if it's a user who forgot to sign in).
Well, gotta bolt.
Thanks, brother newbie like me needs persons like you when in need of help, anyways it's better to focus on improving English writing skills but sometimes I guess I can use Grammarly too because most of the times I lose focus and get distracted due to my programming mind actually I am a data scientist student that is the reason I run into depression and Grammarly helps me fix vocabulary and all stuffs.
We haven't had one of these for months; it's kind of fun in a discordant sort of way.
skysonwane, your score dropped because you "don't want to make grammatical corrections"! You need near-perfect English if you want to survive in HubPages, and from the looks of it, you're barely treading water. You need at least 5 years of English lessons to successfully survive in Hubpages. Well, gotta bolt.
It's fine will see about that whether I could be able to publish my article to the featured list, definitely I am Newbie but I think the first thing I must consider is the improvement message' which is 'Spammy Elements', I already contacted regarding the message which is unaccepted because the message should have to be still until I make changes to the spammy elements but it keeps changing ' anyway's I guess I had already fixed my grammar and about the scores I think Hubpages consider some other factors as well like, spammy elements, promotional content and all.
If I couldn't able to publish my article on here then Hubpages is not the right place to Speak about 'Tutorials on Tech' I'll better continue using Lifehacker and will migrate my Hubpages article to thereby extending it a little more ' I should have read it already about exactly what kind of writing site Hubpages is!

An observation: sometimes threads critiquing people's English skills get taken down. However, it's usually when people derail the thread or when people are a little harder on the writer than necessary. However, with the onslaught of poor language and grammatical skills on the site lately, it's...

I just logged in and it shows every single one of my hubs highlighted in pink, to need review. The majority of these were well trafficked and featured hubs or editor's choice. Did something happen?

I have finally published a hub that has been deemed unfeatured. I can only direct my attention to a table I inserted which was long when viewed on the mobile platform. Grammar is checked, titles tweaked, content is solid as its in the same vein as my other articles. Do you think this could be it?...

I'm thrilled to receive notice recently that this hub may be featured. The article was originally created over a decade ago, same as most of my hubs. I've been focused on updating them all these past few months, over 60 hubs and so far a little over half of them are featured. This one is about a...
