I visited your article waqar, first things first you need to do is change the pictures of your article. Try to use cruelty free images such as pixabay, unsplash, etc and upload more appropriate images. Second, must check the grammer and plagiarism before uploading your articles.
K2khan, there is no such thing as cruelty free pics; it's not a farm. Pixabay and Unsplash provide royalty free pics ie pictures that can be used without payment or attribution. Please don't mislead others.
You need to correct the language errors in the article. You also need to be careful with respect to your health claims. For example, at the start of the second paragraph, you say that people should avoid spicy foods because they can cause high blood pressure (which at least in my part of the world is the same thing as hypertension). Some spices have been found to lower blood pressure, not raise it. In addition, you need to clarify what you mean by telling people to “avoid all fat” in the last paragraph. We need to eat some types of fat in our diet.
I think you should go into more detail about the nutrients and their effects. The story in your article is interesting, but since your article is in the “Health” category you need to put more emphasis on the nutrient facts that you’ve included. You do include some useful advice, but a health article needs authoritative references to support all of the claims related to health and disease.
Moondot, agreed that every one makes mistake. I am not targeting that. You Pakistanis have unique English, different from America and British. Congratulations! But sorry. HP wants none of these. Thanks.
I think Hubpages articles are written in American or British english. However pakistanis can write articles in both American and British, if there was another language HubPages would not accept it. If we wrote in another language, no one could understand or read it.
Alicia, at HP standard America English (AE) or British English (BE) I think is a priority. It is very safe for me to say this. But as regards to other nations or countries English, I am at a loss. Grammarly has help me master AE to certain extent. I am on another thread. The hubber was a Pakistan. We leverage along the language bringing it down to HP requirement. The guy ask me to sing again because his article got featured again. Thank you, Alicia.
Respected Alicia, i told you guys international language is either American or british, we are writing articles following the rules of grammer on the Hubpages and the Hubpages is publishing our articles as featured ariticles. Thank you HubPages.
AliciaC, I would like to say that anyone can make a mistake. Whether he is a native English speaker or not. Like our mother tongue is Urdu but we can't write it perfectly. So it is a bad thing to laugh at someone's mistake.
Bev, I did not talk about Alicia. She is very kind. I've just said that when someone makes a mistake in English, people laugh at it. Alicia said "We can't assume that just because someone comes from a certain country they can't write acceptable English." That's why I addressed her, and I agree with her.
Alicia C is obviously not laughing or mocking anyone. The same when I pointed out K2Khan's wrong description for free images.
Like it or not, mechanically accurate English is a basic requirement here, and that's something anyone is capable of, provided he or she throws in the effort beforehand to learn. To go into the whole native speaker, mother tongue defense is lame, IMO. There is only that one set of English grammar rules wherever you are.
Cyoung, i have corrected my one word mistake as per your advice and i was not misleading someone it was just one word mistake(cruelty) but when you google you will see the two terms royalty or cruelty that confused me at first but yes off course its royalty free.
K2khan, I didn't direct that comment at you. It was in response to Moondot1812's comment, which I misunderstood as him chiding AliciaC.
Which in turn arose from all the nonsensical replies posted by some other hubber here.
But here's something you probably should also know about. You earn, and gain SEO traffic, from international viewers reading your hubs. You increase the chances of that by refining your hubs till they are acceptable for the niche sites.
The old blogging trick of leaving comments all over the place, in hope that other hubbers visit and comment on your writing, is not going to help. Actually, it may even do harm because of the bounce rate.
In short, work on improving your writing and English, and SEO skills. Those are the only ways to get you traffic
Miebakagh57, I know you're not targeting. I'm just saying that when we share a post in a discussion, we don't pay much attention to grammar. Because English is not our native language. I hope you don't mind. Stay blessed.
You've been flooding the forum with lame, near incoherent replies. Many of which are piggybacking off comments of others. Within this thread, your comments are creating confusion too.
Please stop. What you're doing is called digital graffiti. I'm sure you also know us reading your profile or hubs isn't going to help your traffic or earnings. If that's your aim, you're wasting your time.
CYong74, have you ever visit any one of my hub and drop a comment? Nope! Visit the comment. I specific to you in this forum thread. Feel free to respond or not. These new breeds have. And I am encouraging them. Thanks.
Digital graffiti is exactly what you have been doing. Spamming meaningless replies to everybody's comments, the likes of "I agree with ... please comply." "... is welcomed" Etc. All for the purpose of baiting people to visit your hubs and profile.
I ignored it, but then you went overboard and made fun of K2Khan when I pointed out her error. And you did it more than once. You talked about gentlemanly. Was that gentlemanly?
Your comment barely make sense. How do you expect anyone to respond to it? Besides, you were the one making tasteless jibes when I pointed out K2Khan's mistake. Were you being gentlemanly, in your attempts to attract comments for your hubs?
PS: To refer to a new hubber as "breed" is incredibly offensive. Do you even know the word is used for animals?
CYong, I quote "royalty free (echoring your words) yes royalty, you can also say cruelty free(k2khan words). These. Paklstanis...my words" I think this is where the misunderstanding arise and you should have said that to me. Here's another quote "...k2khan, speak our language-loyalty free, not cruelty free," I think I am okay here. Thanks.
To make sense of the order of forum threads, you need to scroll to the top of the page and click on Chronological. Otherwise everyone gets into a tangle trying to work out who is responding to which comment.
I humbly request Bev to stop Miebakagh from repeatedly pointing out pakistanis and not try to hide his mistakes under my name and what penalty he is talking about? I have mentioned many times in my previous messages that it was just a one word mistake which i corrected on Cyong's advice then why he is esclating the matter. Im a newbie here and i'm still learning, i have analyzed that some seniors treat new hubbers in a very indecent way which is embarrasing.
Calm down. People are just laughing but no one thinks you are dumb for that little mistake. Everyone in this world has made a mistake. We can choose to go off in a corner and pout about it, or just laugh and say "It was just a mistake. So what?" Bev is not a moderator. She is just a nice person that has made comments on this thread.
Yeah, I admit that she is a really respectable person and I respect her from the bottom of my heart but miebakagh is using my name again and again in his comments which is why I am forced to comment. We also respect our seniours and hope that they respect us in the same way!
I sincerely apologize for pointing out that mistake; the way miebakagh had been going about the threads, I ought to have predicted he would latch onto this and go on and on about it.
He is just doing it to draw traffic to his hubs, or to troll. Just ignore him. I think you can also tell from what he writes that he barely has anything useful to share. He will just confuse or upset you.
I appreciate your apology Cyoung, You seniors must correct the mistakes of the newcomers, otherwise how will we know that where we have made a mistake? Now i understand his intention. I end this discussion here.
Hi all, the forum and the thread is interesting. But I've learnt I ran into two troublesome like persons. None is dumb. At the same, two old sea dogs and a newbie covering me! Bless my soul. Because I quote my comment not another to explain a misunderstand. I'm not "fake news!" lol! That being said, I ask the two-some to absolve me. Thbnk you all.
