Hi Hub community - my article has been rejected 3 times, and as a new hubber, I am finding it a bit challenging to identify the reasons for the rejection.
I have studied the guidelines and still finding it hard to see where I went wrong.
Any help will be appreciated. Link below:
Charlene, your article can pass QAP. Certain issues working against it are: One, complex sentences containing more than three clause. Two, punctuations. Were you using the American or British standard? The signs(. and are differs in both standard. Better stick to the American or British consistently. Three, is your subtitle which are not consistent with the APA format. Finally, write in simple and compound sentences. But use apt punctuations to bring out meanings in complex sentences. A plus is adding a conclusion. Hope it helps.
Miebakagh, can you give specific examples from the article? Because I can't see much wrong with the grammar. A little wordy, but I've seen a lot worse. In fact, right there in your comment.
For example, "The signs(. and are differs in both standard." What does that mean? Stop confusing people.
I think Charlene has a nice chatty writing voice.
Bev, I don't have to because you advising my "advice" be "ignore." Thanks.
I don't wish to sound horrible, you're a lovely guy, but it makes no sense. You can see that.
Bev, while "I'm not blind" as Wiston Churhill would have had said. And, the whole of my paragraphe 2 you quote out of context, right? Should that make sense? The word 'are' stuck! Just regard it as my small chatty English. Seriously, I'm now taking an observer status on the thread as to how it'll got feaured. Good morning, Bev.
I'd suggest that instead of "Charlie's Photography" as a source, just leave that blank and put a note at the end of the Hub to say the photos are all your own work.
I also suggest changing the title. "My Photography Chronicles" sounds overly personal, as if you're just writing for yourself, not to be helpful to other people - which is what HubPages is all about. I suggest cutting the first few paragraphs which are all about you, and expand on the useful tips that you're offering people in the second half of the article.
Yes, agree with Marisa. You don't need all that in the beginning. It's okay to include a section on how you transitioned to digital.
Use the word 'Composition' (or a variation of it) somewhere in the title, as that's what the article is about. "Photography for Beginners: How to Capture the Perfect Composition", or something like that. It's a searchable title.
Thank you all so much for Feedback. I will try my best to implement all been said. Much Appreciated
Writing is okay but you could do more to engage the reader and make it easy for them to be pulled along through the article.
I personally would call it something like: 5 Ways to to Capture the Perfect Composition, or something along those lines. Have a brief intro, which explains what you are going to do for the reader. Summarize the 5 ways/methods in a numbered index list (I would do at least 5). Then do your tips. Your article is definitely on the short side, there are far more tips and info you could include.
This topic is well covered by others, both within HubPages and on the internet generally, so it's far from ideal subject matter if you want to garner a lot of views, as there is a lot of competition.
I say to beginners: study the front pages of the niche sites to see what HubPages (and the niche sites) like. Don't copy the content, but do take note of the styles, layouts, and structural devices, eg bullet points, use of subheadings, index, etc. .
I would suggest a simpler title. Such as "5 Ways to Compose a Photograph". For search term purposes, the simpler the title the better. I believe that Title would fit your Article. Also, you may have too many photographs with no explanation behind any of them. Remove some, than you could talk about each photograph and how they are exhibiting one of the 5 composition set ups.
Thank you, everyone, for your help...my article was finally passed! Much appreciated:)

I hope somebody can help. I now have 49 hubs, and yet not one of them are seen by the search engines. When I click on their stats, it says under 'search phrases,' no search terms to add.(list of words that appear commonly in searches that bring visitors to your hub.)It seems that all my hubs need...

I was just creating my latest hub and the URL I created comes up with a message that that url already exists. How do I re-link my new hub to that URL (my own thunderkeys URL)?
