    I would like to improve my article. It's featured, but it has a hubscore of 56. That's unacceptable.

    How do I fix it?

      Erick,
      It's very sweet. I think you need to make a decision. Do you want the lines to rhyme? Or do you want them to just be prose? We see more prose now, and I think that gives you more freedom to say what you want.

      Try playing around with it both ways. I love it when people write their own poems, it's such a nice touch. Keep the part at the bottom where you explain about her smile.

      Your capitalization of Mother's Day is inconsistent, so you might fix that. I like your poem. The score often improves over time.

    A pleasant poem. Try adding at least two more photos. HP likes a hub to have at least three photos. That may help your score.

        Well, it always has. Unless that has changed recently.

          A great poem doesn't need 3 images. I read a great and painful poem which was on LetterPile. It consisted of an image which captured the very essence of the poem well and a group of 3-lined stanzas which complemented the image extremely well. Read "The Pain When It Rains." I don't remember who wrote it, but I want my poems to be on LetterPile someday.

            I read it. Not a bad poem.

      My score's in the 60s last time I checked.

    Many of my poems are on Letterpile, especially the most recent ones. I am just saying what HP guidelines for stellar hubs have always been. They always recommended having three images or more. It is up to you to do that or ignore it however.

      Theraggededge said you don't need 3 images. Just one is enough.

    I just came here to report that four of my poems just got moved to LetterPile. Now, I have 12 articles in Niche sites. Also, this is the first time that 4 of my 5 poems got moved to the same site almost simultaneously. I thank theraggededge for the criticism.

    A poetry hub is unlikely to ever qualify as what HubPages calls a 'stellar hub'. However, In reality, any kind of hub, if written and presented well, can be stellar. It doesn't need all those bells and whistles, which I think in many cases, detract from the content.

    I really think HP should revise its stellar hub guidelines as they are a little over the top.

    Edit: Congrats, Ivan for getting your poems to Letterpile. Well done smile
