I'm really confused as to why my article isn't being published. It says it doesn't pass the QA but doesn't give me any indication as to why??? 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: Top 3 Energy Saving Tips (must be signed in to view)
I guess it's the length of the article and the use of the image. 1000 words or more works well. Images used must be from public domain. Pixabay is a good option.
You need to spend some time in the Learning Center (Help button, upper right) reviewing the articles there. They will tell you everyhting you need to know to properly write and format articles that will be published and featured on the Hubpages platform.
It's a little too short. Articles like this need to be around 1,000 words.
Your subtitles should be in title case. Avoid using generic subtitles like 'In Summary' followed by nothing. Sorry to be harsh but that last paragraph is empty of meaningful information.
Also the first three paragraphs are surplus to requirements - we're not all in North America
Also avoid exclamation points. They are rarely necessary in an article.
Now, for the really important stuff... say someone is looking for such information? They are going to type 'energy saving tips' into Google. Is yours going to show up in the top results or will it be articles like this one: https://www.thegreenage.co.uk/100-ways- … your-home/ Are people going to click on three tips or one hundred? That article is representative of your competition and, although you don't have to include one hundred tips, you need to add a whole bunch more.
There are articles on the HubPages network that are far more comprehensive, see here: https://toughnickel.com/frugal-living/ Here's one from Eubug, a forum contributor: https://toughnickel.com/frugal-living/1 … -Your-Home
Have a look at those and then figure out how to make yours better.
thanks. it doesnt add up though. I have a similar article which was featured... https://hubpages.com/living/Staying-War … gy-Savings
People have given you some good tips for improving your article and getting more readers. One factor that might have caused the article to fail the Quality Assessment Process is the grammar errors. Here are some of the problems that I see in the article.
The phrase “to invest in the future of our retirement” in the first sentence doesn’t make sense. Saying “to invest in our retirement” would be better.
In the third paragraph of the second text capsule, “I installed blinds in my condo” would be better than “I installed blinds into my condo”. In addition, “West” shouldn’t be capitalized.
In the last sentence of the third text capsule, I think you mean “prevented” instead of allowed.
It may be worth making changes to the wording in the article in addition to making any other alterations that you choose to make.
You are making the mistake of comparing this article with another one of yours. You should be comparing it with what's 'out there'. If QAP sees it as sub-standard then it won't get passed. Harsh, but true.
I like your conversational tone, but the article is 'thin'. It needs a lot more useful information - tips that people don't already know about.
