    I have written 2 articles for my hubpage, and no matter what I do to improve it, it is never enough and it won't even get published on MY PERSONAL PAGE! HELP! I've done everything that they have suggested! I'm about to just say screw it, I've done everything that I can and now it's become a waste of my time!

      Make sure you hit the word count by writing at least 700 words. Articles less than 700 words are less likely to get featured.
      Informative: make sure that your article is informative enough.
      Readability: Make sure that your article is well-structured. The main content should be presented in a logical manner. You can also use capsules to make your content more interesting and well-arranged.

      Good-luck!

      You don't have a 'personal page'. Hubpages isn't a blogging platform.

        I understand exactly what it is intended for, thank you.

      Good morning miss Evans. Welcome to the writing world.  First, you need to read at the hub learning center the  rules and regulations for your hub. It is not easier at the begining. Good luck to you.

        None of us can help you unless you provide us with links to your hubs. All it requires is a little courage and the willingness to accept constructive criticism.

        Thank you. I have written a blog page on a separate webpage for almost 2 years now, so I understand writing. I don't even think I have a link to my blogs on HubPages as they are continuously put back into the "edit" section.

      I think she followed up on her threat and just said "screw it."

        No threats, just stress.

      write 700 words in your hub, exclude external links, make sure the photos are YOURS or from wikipedia, not in Google Images, add in polls, quiz and videos related to your hub topic

        Thank you for your help. I have done everything required, and every one of your suggestions. So, as you can see, this is why I'm so confused. Thanks again.

    Hubpages has a very helpful feature where you are able to post your failed articles on the forums and get feedback to learn why they failed. In fact, they even sent you an email telling you the link to use post and get feedback.
    If you just prefer to "say screw it" without even asking for specific feedback...well, that is your choice.

    1. Gregory DeVictor profile image95

      Why not take DrMark's advice. You have nothing to lose except not having your article published.

      Perhaps you also need to read and reread this useful HP web page:

      Thank you for that link. I never received the email that is being referred to.

        Any person that writes an article that does not pass the quality assesment program should receive an email telling them to seek help in the forums. That email has a link that they can post so that others can look at the article and give feedback.
        If you have not received any of the emails, contact team@hubpages.com and ask them why. It will only take a minute, and is worth your time.

    One hopes that you manage to get it sorted.
    Better still, why not have your Butler do it?
    Mine does everything. He's such a find.
    All the very best my dear.

        Once again, if you'd like some help or suggestions there are a number of us who have been around for a while and might be able to make some suggestions regarding how HP does things.  But you need to leave links to your articles or we can't read them. It really is a supportive community and usually when people put up links for help (which happens regularly), suggestions made help them get their articles published and featured.  Like any site HP has it's own way of doing things and bases their requirements on certain factors known to increase "searchability," page rankings and views.  Post the links and I'm sure you will receive suggestions that will help you get your articles published the next time around.   Good luck.

          Thank you. One of my articles is on my profile page... I'm sorry but I can not find a link.

            You may find a link to your article in an email.

    I have re-written each post at least 5 times each with all requirements necessary. As you probably know, this takes up a LOT of time. I have so many other things on my to-do list as well, and I can't get all that I need to do finished because of the time spent re-writing my posts over and over. I don't have the luxury of a "butler", I have 3 children and a business I am trying to run as well as the everyday household chores. I just need to know why all my efforts are continuously for nothing when I am doing everything correctly, it's so disappointing after hours of trying to correct it with no prevail. I believe that you would probably be disappointed as well if this were the case for you. I feel like a failure time and time again, and all that I want to do is publish my posts, which are intended to help others. It just gets very stressful.

      I would definitely also be very frustrated if I couldn't get my articles published. Just from observing your writing here on the forum, it's obvious you can write. So, I'm not sure why your articles are not getting published.

      Not sure you resolved this yet, but it occurs to me that the problem is with links in your articles. Because if it isn't your writing or subject matter, links are one of the things left on the list of possible reasons for an article's rejection.

    Took a look at your profile and it is peppered with unnecessary exclamation marks which makes it appear shouty and unprofessional. Every sentence bar one ends in an exclamation mark. If you have written your articles (not posts) in a similar manner, that could be one reason why they haven't been approved.

    If you haven't already done so, then a little research at the Learning Center will pay dividends in helping you to produce useful and income-generating articles: https://hubpageshelp.com/

    This one may be able to answer your question: https://hubpageshelp.com/standards/Lear … -standards

    Those resources are also hubs, so seeing how they are formatted and written will give you a good idea what's required.

    Good luck.

      Thank you for your help on the matter. I didn't realize that exclamation points from excitement are looked at as unprofessional. However, that is only in my bio, my articles are very resourceful and professionally written. I actually have a poetry novel with an ISBN number going out into the public, so I do know writing styles and I am actually very good at it. That is why I got so frustrated writing my articles multiple times and they were still not up to standards. Thanks again.

    Just follow what the form email says. There are lots of articles on the email links you to with suggestions to improve your article.

    I am glad; you figured out. It important to read the instructions before we started sometthing new. Every task has rules and regulations. If we miss a minimum detail. We fail. Good luck with your writing miss Evans.
