I'd like feedback on my article: What Is Diabetes and Its Symptoms

    "Diabetes is a disease where the greater part of the patients don't say anything negative of numerous prompt symptoms yet the glucose being high this disease quietly harms practically every one of the significant organs of the body including the heart and kidney."

    This is a sentence that simply doesn't make sense. It is not the only one of its kind in the offering. Here's another "As a rule, just a cautious eating routine can handle the disease- yet with a decent measure of activity, stress the executives, Yoga, and instruction the vast majority of the patients can have an infection-free state for quite a while frame."

    It looks as though some very bad translation software is lurking in the background.

    And, how does this get promoted to Discover?

    Looks like all the OP's articles have been run through translation/spinning software.

    Here's a clue, "Turkey and chicken bosom".

    I think he is yet another victim of the dastardly, lying YouTuber.

      Haha! Sometimes the spun stuff is so bad, it's funny! And I mean that from the bottom of my blood pumping muscular organ!

    Hi, Anoop. I’m afraid I can see many problems in your article. The first thing I saw was your bio, which contains grammatical errors.  That would probably discourage people from reading any further. Language errors are also present in the article.

    The first sentence says that diabetes is a “normal” disease. A disease isn’t normal. Diabetes isn’t an infection. It could be dangerous to say, “ As a rule, just a cautious eating routine can handle the disease.” You say that diabetes is a “disease of inconveniences” and then list some potentially dangerous effects.

    You must add authoritative references from medical professionals to your article, and you should include one of the disclaimers that HubPages provides. The choice of topic is up to you, but many people (including health experts) have written about diabetes. Your article may not get much traffic even when it’s improved unless you add extra information that is useful for the reader.

    Edit: I see that Rupert posted some similar points while I was composing my response. They are important.

    Bev and Alicia, my question remains, how does stuff like this get onto Discover?

    I have a dozen or so articles that may not be niche material, but are vastly superior to this, yet I can't get them even onto Discover. I fail to understand how this happens.

      I don't get it either, Rupert. It makes no sense and goes against the rules.

      All newly published articles head straight to Discover. They can then be demoted to HP, promoted to a network site, or stay where they are.

      Edit: one irritation is that sub-par or copied articles can no longer be flagged on Discover and it's pointless doing it on HP.

        Oh, they no longer do an initial assessment with humans then? I guess the MTurk thing stopped? I did wonder. It does look bad when material that's clearly copied then translated/spun by software is making it onto Discover.

      I agree, Rupert. It’s very frustrating when better articles are left on HubPages and articles of lower quality are put on Discover.

        Yes. I noticed one of mine languishing on HP, submitted it to a network site and it went through within days.

          Bev, that is noted.

    anoopd64, I can understand the points you're trying to convey. But some of the slang languages spoilt the story.                                 The others starting from Rupert to Alicia had point out this to you.                                                  And besides, writing an article about diabetes mellitus, a medical health topic needs some references to the source or resource you use. Add a conclusion.                                   Some of the sentences are too long. Make them short. Take care of English grammar and punctuations. As such I recommended you download grammarly at http://www.grammarly.com The free version helps you with grammar quetions.

    Yes, after the copied content is spun, they think that their article become unique(but they hardly consider for example,the grammar aspect).                                        We old writers at  Hubpages are yet to cut off the arms and legs of the idiot youtuber.

      IMHO, probably due to shame.
