    Can I please get some advise on my two current articles that I am writing?

    They are the following: … Money-Fast … e-Cruisers

    They have got knocked back with the generic 'needs improvement' flag and I'm not sure why.
    Maybe it is because I am sitting here with a fractured knee cap and just can't see the obvious at the moment or maybe it is something else. Any help would be appreciated to allow me to learn how to craft better articles in the future

    We're unable to see them because they are not published. I suggest you contact and explain that you can't get help from the community because the links aren't working.

    Meanwhile, you can check out this article in the Learning Center: … tured-Hubs

      I think I have them working now. Seems like I have bad luck with this platform like some capsules not saving the content properly as well.

    I don't think the first one will get approved as I'm pretty sure HP don't approve stuff about affiliate marketing. Plus it is really hard to earn money on YouTube these days if you are just starting out as they have recently changed the rules as you probably know.

    The second one doesn't have any source attributes for the photos and I would hazard a guess that you didn't take them all! There are also a few grammar issues.

      Do we need to attribute images that are sourced from pixabay? I would use some of my own but a lot that are not fit for the purpose.

      Thanks for the advice. I wasn't aware of the no affiliate marketing rule. Oops.

        This might help about the images … -image-use - although Pixabay are great and don't need attribution, I think if you are just starting in HP you might need to attribute them so that the editors know they are legally sourced.
