    Hola HubPages community,
    A new attendee signing in! It seems like many others I am having trouble getting my articles featured. And I need the help of a third eye.

    https://hubpages.com/style/Niacinamide- … de-effects

    It would really mean so much if you could help point out the mistakes in this article that I am missing. Your help will highly be appreciated.

      I took a quick look, and it appears spammy with the link at the beginning. Perhaps, you can place it at the end of the article as a reference link. Also, there is %5 plagiarism hit in the first paragraph. By the way, this topic is super competitive. Google it, and you will see the top websites. These sites are heavily promoted and backed by medical experts.

        Are you talking about the hyperlink in the first paragraph of what exactly is Niacinamide? Also, May I know how to judge whether an article is spammy or not? The HubPages article isn't much of a help. Maybe it's because I am a beginner. Thanks just the same.

          Lots of info here. https://hubpageshelp.com/

          There are three tabs: Making money, publishing standards, and content creation.

          Yes. Try to info the reader, not sell products. Niacin and niacinamide are excellent supplements, but you have heavy competition on the Internet.

            Will do that.

            Also, would you mind telling me that can an article get featured, even though the score rating is less? This seems confusing to me.

              Yes. It isn't very clear. But, I would concentrate first on writing articles worth reading and improving your quality of work. And study the guidelines in the Learning Center.

      Hey there, your article is a health related topic.                                 You should have introduce the topic with a brief introduction.                                       That being said, a conclusion and source of material you consulted should be include at the end of the discourse.                                             As a newbie, my advice is for you to go to the Learning Center and spent some time there, say over a week and more. There you can learn how to present your articles in a magazine style format.                                              Click HELP on your feed. This will take you to the learning center. Good success.

        Unrelated to the OP, but relevant to the post within: Why do you space your sentences the way you do? Is it like a style thing, or your keyboard is broken; perhaps you don't see it the way others do?

        1. Miebakagh57 profile image70
          Miebakagh57posted 13 months agoin reply to this

          Kyler J, take a look at my reply again in its entity other than your referencing "Miebakagh57 said". They don't look the same. The spacing occurs in you quoting me.                                       Obviously, my first three paragraph got broken in your quote. I wrote my response in  paragraphe.  FYI, I use a small TECNO phone, and not a computer/laptop. Perhaps, it can cause the issue when one quotes. Thank you.

            Kyler J Falkposted 13 months agoin reply to this

            It isn't just within the quote, it is in your post. So it is most likely your phone that has the weird spacing, and you only see it when I or someone else quotes you. Now I totally get it, and I appreciate you taking the time to explain it.

              Kyler J, much thanks and you're welcome.                                            The issue has once been point out to me by  Bev.

            I see the weird spacing with everything Miebakagh57 posts in the forums.

                Happy to read such stuffs here. And glad my TECNO phone(a gift) keeps me online, after my 12 inch hp laptop got stolen.                                        My side-chic mini laptop has a mother board issue. Hope to get it running again or an alternative. Thanks.

    It looks like an advertisement.

    Also you must use images that are legal and learn how to cite the source correctly. More info here: https://hubpageshelp.com/content/Learni … -image-use

    My advice would be to abandon this one, or find a different approach to it. Perhaps do a unbiased comparison with another product?

    1. Serii profile image65
      Seriiposted 13 months agoin reply to this

      I really didn't know the content looked like an advert. I just wanted to write about Niacinamide. Would it be better if I deleted the products I listed at the end? Also, I am currently learning how to cite images correctly. Thanks for the advice!

    Thanks for the links

    If you follow the advice given about the images and add authoritative references for the information that you’ve shared, the article could be useful. You should try to find references from sources other than a cosmetics company.

    You should be careful about statements that aren’t supported by a reference or by the information in your article, such as the one saying that everyone has only good things to say about niacinamide and the one saying that it’s the favorite ingredient of dermatologists.

    It’s good that you’ve described potential side effects of niacinamide use. Since these side effects are possible, however, you should add one of the disclaimers that HubPages provides at the end of the article.

      This is good advice.

      Thanks for the detailed advice. Will follow and get back.

      Seriiposted 12 months agoin reply to this

      I followed your advice. Let's see what happens. I had a question regarding the length of the articles. Are we allowed to write articles that have more than a 1300 word count? Could it be one of the reasons your articles get unpublished?

      1. theraggededge profile image97
        theraggededgeposted 12 months agoin reply to this

        Longer articles are good. Very short ones, not so much.

        My longest is over 5k words.

        1. Serii profile image65
          Seriiposted 12 months agoin reply to this

          Thanks. Cause I thought HubPages allows articles of only 700-1250 word count length.

    I think a newbie is good to go with just 1500 words.

      Sir, I ain't new to writing. I am new to HubPages. Please restructure the sentence since your reply sounds a bit insulting to me.

        Serii, okay you're a newbie to hubpages, right or not?                                                You may not be new to the writing profession or to the freelacing game.                                   However, being new here and like most older writers, you need direction and guidance in the Learning Center. For example, the word count you envisage is still a minimum on Hubpages. You're good to go on that.                                                      More so, have you visit the LC lately? There's much for you to learn there than I can tell. Click help on your feed and zero in. And thanks.
