I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. I don't plan on exclusively writing articles like this, but I thought I would write something simple just to get my feet wet...though it's not the most pleasant experience to be denied without specific feedback as to why.
Will you please give feedback on my article? What can I do to improve? Thanks!
Here is my article: 7 Benefits of Jumping Rope (must be signed in to view)
It is probably an image thing. Your first image is fine without crediting, since it is public domain. The other two will be fine if you credit the creators. One is sourced from Flickr, the other from Wikimedia commons.
The only other potential issues are 2 amazon ads close together and a link to a blog (kokofit) which might be seen as self serving.
Thank you so much for the feedback Will. I’ve never publically published something like this so I assumed since the images were public I could just use them without sharing. I will cite them and probably take out one of the Amazon links.
The article seems fine to me, so I reckon you will be OK. Raggededge's suggestions will make it more readable, which is never a bad thing.
All images carry a license. You have to ascertain whether that license allows you to republish. Just because it's on the internet doesn't mean it's free to use.
The best sources of photos are: your own, Pixabay, Pexels (& similar sites), and Public Domain images of the kind that are found on Wikipedia. The latter one must be checked because accreditation is usually required.

Starting simple is always a good idea
Okay, I'd say reduce the use of the keyphrase 'jumping rope'. In the UK it's called 'skipping', or skipping with a rope. So look for alternatives.
Add an introduction describing what's to come in the article. It's your chance to grab your reader's attention.
Clarify the studies by name and put the links to them at the end as proper references. That stops your readers 'jumping' right off the page to another site.
Break your text capsules up into more capsules and make use of the proper subheadings. They can help you get in varied keyphrases. So your first one might be 1. Use that Rope to Burn Fat Fast.
Proof read carefully. Read the text out loud, it is one of the best ways to pick up awkward sentences like this one, "With that the improved coordination and flowing endorphins, it only stands to reason that jumping rope will improve your mental health."
When using Amazon links, you must demonstrate that you are familiar with the item. That you use it and why it is essential to the topic. And only use one link.
This will pass easily once you make those few corrections.
Wow - Thank you so much for taking the time to give such specific and helpful feedback. I will adjust as you said and look forward to hopefully passing (and posting more in the future!). I just “found” this and am excited to have an easy outlet for content.
The same suggestions found in your article, including your number 7, are found at numerous other sites.
Even if you follow suggestions by theraggededge and Will and your article does manage to pass QAP, you are unlikely to ever get this moved to a niche site and evel less likely to get any traffic from this.
You have indicated in your profile that you know about other subjects, and your first comment is that you are not planning on writing stuff like this. If you can write something original it is going to be approved by Hubpages and you will possibly get traffic (and earnings).
Dont you think that another article would be more worthy of your time?
Best of luck.

Hi Hubbers,This article has not passed QAP. Though it has a higher score than my previous articles. I have had no input as to why it hasn't passed, I've proofread it and the grammar is spot on, photos are available for reuse or my own.. So WTF is wrong?!!I'd like some help with passing the Quality...
