    I want to have confirmation that articles are still being accepted on the different network sites. I've submitted 3 articles from 3 different accounts to 3 different network sites and I've had no answers. All 3 of these articles have been featured, have ample content, and relevant media.

    Maybe I'm a little skeptical, but I wanted to know if anyone else has had any success, and if so could you post on here to look off of.

    Here on of the articles - … s-Computer

      Couple more things:  you have links that send the reader off to other sites.  HubPages frowns on that.  You also have links to other articles on the HubPages site.  Articles on the niche sites are not allowed to link to articles on the HubPages site.

    They are accepting articles. Although your chess article is informative and comprehensive, you have a lot of Amazon links, capsules, and links in your article, which may prevent it being moved.

    I do think they've got tighter in recent times, both for accepting articles, and removing ones that have been previously accepted. I think HP are maybe spooked by the decline in views and are trying to up the quality?

    Like Ragged Edge says, you will be lucky to get an article with so many Amazon Ads accepted in the new climate...

    So essentially no amazon links or hubpages links? Do they realize thatlow bounce rate is important to rank in Google? If people consistently hit the back button from a site's pages because there's nothing inviting to click on then Google will view this as a signal that the website's not giving them the information they're looking for.

      Remove all the links to other hubs. If the article is accepted, you can add them back as long as they are to the niche site. HP does not want you linking a niche article back to HP main site.
      Also remove the Amazon capsule.
      To improve bounce rate, write your article so good that it provides the reader with the information they are looking for.

      Add your reference links to the bottom of the page, but do not include links to HubPages. Only link to articles already on the network sites. It's because HubPages is essentially a holding site after being designated as a content farm by Google.

      Include just one or two inline Amazon links. You only need readers to click through to Amazon - you will still get the commission whatever they purchase.

        By inline you mean in not using an amazon module, but using textual link like this one, am I correct?

          Yes. You already used them a couple of time in the article. People with ad-blockers don't see the capsules.
