      You need to attribute your photos.  They should be your own or creative commons licensed.  You cannot just take photos from Google without permission.  That is considered theft and is illegal.

      You make a lot of medical claims in your article.  Are you a doctor?  What proof do you have for your health claims?  HubPages does not allow authors to make unsubstantiated medial claims.

      You need to spend some time reviewing the information in the Learning Center (Help button, upper right).  Those articles will tell you everything you need to know to properly write and format an article for this platform.

        Hie Rose . Thanks for your guidance. Actually I'm new  and don't  how to attribute my photos. Kindly provide step by step guidance.
        Also I'm not making any tall medical claims. We in India consume it regularly and know its medicinal values. Its come to us from our ancestors.
        What should I do to substantiate my article, please guide.

          The step by step instructions are outlined in the Learning Center which you can access by clicking on the Help button in the upper righthand corner of this screen.

          You are confusing cultural norms with medical knowledge.  For instance, your statement:  "The green fruit is very good for our bowel problems. It helps in digestion and imroves the digestive system a great deal."

          How does the fruit help with bowel problems?  Which bowel problems?
          What is the scientific study proving this? 

          How does the fruit help with digestion?  What is the scientific study proving this? 

          How does the fruit improve the digestive system?  What is the scientific study proving this?

          You must provide scientific evidence that is generally accepted by the medical community for all of your claims in your article.  You cannot just assert them.  They must be proven.

      Please, pardon the bitter senior members of the site seeking to harass me and call for your removal/ban from the site elsewhere. If you would like assistance with your writing please feel free to contact me through my profile and I would be happy to offer advice and constructive criticism.

      As to you senior members who continuously prove my point, and seek to prod me like curious children, I advise you stop supplying me evidence as the amount is already substantial and I dislike having to send screenshots to Matt and the other staffers as much as they dislike seeing proof of harassment from their "biggest earners."

      Oh, and feel free to copy/paste that first message and link my profile should you ever feel the need to act like children once more. I'm always willing to help anyone who comes seeking it, not play the games of immature adults.

        big_smile Harassment.

        I'm curious who is asking for the OP to be removed from the site? It seems to me that you, Kyler, are attempting to do exactly that by sending your screenshots to staff.

        I like the bit about acting like immature adults - especially when you went straight off to write a hub complaining about all the nasty hubbers. Grow up, ffs.

        So you are not even going to try and help this guy? That seems rather petty.

      3. OldRoses profile image97
        OldRosesposted 4 weeks agoin reply to this

        So if trying to help an author improve their article so that it can be published on Hubpages is considered harassment, how exactly are we to respond when authors ask for help?  Please explain your reasoning.

    Your title needs to be what the article is about, not your username

    The article itself is good though you should quote when possible authoritative sources to back your claim unless you're a health professional. The issue is the formatting.
    The title as suggested should be about what you're talking about, not your name e.g. The Healthy Benefits of Banana.
    You have included may photos in one setting. You should vary them e.g. insert a photo after the heading, write part of an article, insert another one, then another part of the article and maybe another one then another photo and the last one should be a text or part of the article.
    There are text and photo capsules which helps in arranging a content. Don't insert the whole content in one area. You should vary your content by using the provided capsules.
    You will not the text and photo capsules on the right side of the editing page. Click on them and they will appear under the main content you're writing on. Rearrange them in the order you want: photo> text>text>photo> text

        Hi. This section of the Learning Center describes how to attribute photos.
        Click on the "Examples of Proper Image Attribution on HubPages" link in the article.

        https://hubpageshelp.com/content/Learni … d_15012674

        Your second and fourth photos are the same. Photos should be full-width.

        As noted by Alicia C, it is a good idea if you spend quality time at learning centre for it provides detailed instructions how to create a stellar hub.
        In short, once you open a photo capsule you'll see three lengthy blank spaces. The first one you insert the name of the owner of the photo, the second you insert the link where you got the photo, and the third you put one word names associated with the photo.
        When you access a photo on a website, select the link at the top of the site (search or url bar), copy it then paste it on the second blank space on the photo capsule.
        There are several sites that offer free photos for commercial use. With these sites, you can attribute the source of the photos or not at all. But, it is a good practice to attribute the source of a photo just as you would want someone to attribute you as their source when they use part of your article in their site or wherever.
        They are:
        Pexels
        Pixabay
        Unsplash
        Wiki Commons media
        Mostly, I use pixabay
