    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article Islamic prophecy dreams (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      What is your purpose in writing at HubPages?

        The reason why I asked that question is because your goal in writing here is important.

        If you are here to earn, then your articles need to attract traffic. Thus, it needs a search-friendly title.

        If you are here to express your religious views (and there's nothing wrong with that), you might have problems because Hubpages is looking for magazine-style articles with a broad appeal.

        Your articles need to be structured with an introduction that tells the reader what the article is about and your reason for writing it.

        You might spend sometime in the Learning Center to find out more: https://hubpageshelp.com/

          I also believe that HP does not want to promote hate speech.

            Is there hate speech in it?


            Oh yeah...I didn't get through it all the first time.

            No, that's never going to work here.

          Religion is often a touchy subject, like with politics because it is easy to be biased in the writing, and can easily cause conflict. For this reason, I personally avoid writing about either topic (politics or religion) here.

          However, far as attracting traffic and having a broad appeal, I think both politics and religion fit.

          For instance, Islam is the second most popular religion in the world with 1.3 billion people (Christianity being 2.1 billion). If done right, it could bring a bunch of traffic. Again, the challenge I foresee is the conflicts between opinions, and beliefs.

            Have you read it?

            What you say is correct, however, this is not a general article about Islam. It's the personal dreams of the writer as far as I can tell. With a call to rise up and go to war. It is not the kind of thing that will be approved.

      Let me respond to you in a different way. Allah Abdur Abkar. I don't know any of your muslim ways, but I do understand that Arabic is your first language. Here's a dose of reality. You can share Muslim customs as long as you post Exceptionally high-quality, non-threatening and no-nonsense content. I'll hand it over to you, hubbers.

      I know for a fact that an article can survive without capsules because I have written such hubs and they were featured. The Hubscores were naturally low until the day I understood how to use capsules. Capsules will enhance your article's appearance. It will also be easier to read.

      I however doubt if an article can be featured if it lacks subtitles. It doesn't have hyphens. No bullets. Just one long prose.

      I think what your article lacks is structure. And if hubpages has an issue with the content, you will be notified when you try to submit it because they will have to let you know that they cannot place ads  on that particular article because it does not adhere to set standards and guidelines...

    Break it up into several capsules rather than one long one.  Insert some high quality photos.  Use the guide at the top of the edit screen as to what produces the best results (photos, charts, etc.) and get it filled in as much as possible.

      A high-quality article needs at least 1500 words, clear and concise subtitles, APA Title Case to be exact, at least 3 high-quality photos, and a combination of tables, quizzes or videos. There has to be at least two of those. Then the article will be featured.

        Ivan, just well-written text and the appropriate number of images is fine. Many topics don't require all the bells and whistles. Some only need one image. I rarely add videos and polls, and I've never added a quiz.

        Only use those things if the content supports them. Otherwise, leave them out.

        @Ivan Hernandez. I agree, when I published my first hub, I followed the tutorial creator to create a good hub. You have more chances of having a featured if you follow the guidelines that are provided, which you stated, especially if it is your first hub.

      3. Mary Florence profile image68
        Mary Florenceposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        It can still have less than 1500 words and less than 3 photos, doesn't need videos, tables, quizzes unless they are relevant but I agree on the title. Sometimes the problem lies on the title only. Must be APA styled.

    As stated by @wilderness, you need to make use of your capsules. HubPages prefers articles written for mobile users now. This means shorter paragraphs, and sections with clear headers and sub-headers so readers can easily scan through.

    @Ivan also has great points, but personally I'm no good at creating quizzes, but I add at least two polls when possible.

    When I create my headers, I use the Heading 2 and Heading 3 (sub-headers).

    A hub prophesying that Pakistan will defeat all the super-powers in World War Three seems an odd fit with a US-based commercial content farm.

    Other than technical issues, I think the problem with this hub, the huge problem, is that it's celebrating a controversial personality and his claims. Claims that even Muslims are offended by, going by the comments left on other websites.

    Please remember that HubPages is a magazine site. It's not a free expression, free blogging platform like WordPress or Blogger. You can write whatever you want, however you want it, but if you expect to be featured, you have to observe basic magazine article writing stipulations. These begin with having balanced, objective write-ups, not personal rants. Common sense will also tell you HP will never in a hundred years approve anything that remotely encourages war. The moment it does so, it would be put down by authorities.

      You know, she's right. A controversial topic can hurt if done incorrectly. I have over 10,000 views across all articles. I have 8 articles in network sites. How did I earn the honor? I earned it by posting Magazine-Style articles. I have an article that keeps getting Traffic because of the content. It's a political article that, until two months ago, hardly gained google views. Then, all of a sudden, BOOM!! I had over 340 google views in those 2 months. I kept updating my article over time. A capsule with no subtitles might just as well go unfeatured. Islam is good, but ISIS is bad. Just looking out for the OP who started this thread.
