I would love feedback on my article "How To Optimize Your Home For Energy Efficiency". It's featured on HubPages, but DenGarden would not accept it. I'd love to improve it in any way that I can! I learn a lot from constructive criticism. Thank you for your help!
Couple of things. The outbound links are not a good idea, you really don't want to send people away from your article. Perhaps, include a list of sources with links at the end of your article.

Brandon, there are several problems which would preclude it from being accepted. The first I saw was that it was not set up to skim over. You should have a bullet list at the top with the suggestions, and then get into them in further detail below.
The second problem I saw was that this material is very old and has been written about many times before. Do you have any suggestions that would make your home more energy effecient that are new and original?
The third is the incadescent bulb solutions. There are better alternatives out there, and have been for a while. Why not mention them?
The last is the lack of a summary. Try to tie this information together. There is also no reader interaction, and your page retention time is going to be very low.
You have a lot of work to do if you want it moved to a niche site but it is worth your time. If this stays on HP main site you will have very little if any traffic.
Best of luck with this.
The info seemed kind of basic to me and not helpful to people who aren't wealthy enough to replace windows and a furnace. Most of us are more likely to be able to fill gaps, put cling plastic on windows or get insulated curtains, stuff that is $10 not $10,000. Also stuff you could explain how to do and have legit amazon links.

Why do Hub writers not appreciate literary critique to improve their craft?I wrote a suggestion in the forum yesterday about adding the ability to include MINOR feedback to authors while rating articles in the Hub Hopper. I know peeps can get rude with critiques - but I think that can be minimized....
