    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article? What can I do to improve? Thanks!
    Here is my article: How To Become A Content Writing Master

    I would be inclined to try the following:

    - Remove all of the links to other hubs
    - Remove the capsule that says 'Other Writing Hubs'
    - Remove the Amazon capsule
    - Remove underlined text
    - Replace the image with one or two high resolution, copyright free images
    - Number your steps (Ironically, numbered lists and bullet points are one of your listed recommendations!)
    - Consider rewording your title to 'How to....in 12 Steps'
    - Check all headings in APA format
    - Remove header which says 'Writer'
    - Replace 'Introduction' header with something more relevant

    Hope this helps. I didn't spend time reading the hub as your English is fine. This article was written a long time ago and the goal posts have moved considerably since then. Good luck!

      Awesome suggestions, thanks. I implemented them and my page status changed to featured.

    When you are making those changes that Marketing Merit has suggested, you also need to add a bio. As it appears now the article has no authority. (If I am reading an article on "How to  become a Kung Fu master" and find out that the author has only been studying Kung Fu for a year, I am not going to give it much weight.)
    You should also get rid of the Squidoo comment. Many of your readers will realize that the site failed.

    Along with what's been said already, you should create a stronger statement for the Don't Duplicate Content section.  It's more than telling the reader they are too lazy to create their own content.  It's plagiarism, is never okay, and can result in a hefty fine if the actual author catches them and decides to go further than a DMCA.  I would clearly explain what plagiarism is (i.e. more than just copying something word for word, it's also spinning, changing just enough words to not come up on a plagiarism checker, or stealing someone's ideas without substantially altering them.  Then provide suggestions for how to avoid plagiarizing. This can be integrated with the Copyright section.

    Take out the Ebay capsule.  They d/c the program.

    Good luck.

    Very useful article, indeed.

    Check this section: "Now there are some people who can pull this off and are very successful at it. For them, they should continue doing what they do as it is very successful for them. For others, myself included, it can become overwhelming and then the distractions begin."


    --replace "successful" with a synonym, instead of using it twice
    --change the wording of the sentence that contains "for them" twice because it is redundant
    --"...and then the distractions begin."  perhaps clarify what you mean by this (what distractions?)

    Also, later in your article, you use the word "layout" (noun) when I believe you mean to say "lay out" (verb)

    I just read it again. It looks a lot better. Glad to see it is already featured, but now figure out which niche site it should be on and make sure it gets moved.
    (You might want to submit it yourself to make sure that the staff evaluates it.)
