    Hola Amigos,
    Honestly speaking, I am a bit frustrated with the Hub standards of rating an article. I have enlisted three links below. The first two being in the skincare, medical field. Since they are in the medical field, I added a references capsule for the same. The third being in the home improvement niche. But they keep getting unpublished.

    1. … ts?hubview

    2. … es?hubview

    3. … nt?hubview

    It would be a great help if you could take a look at the three articles, each if you could, and help me point out the mistakes. I have adhered to all the guidelines of HubPages, but still no results. Also, at the same time, HubPages (site) keeps deleting or not saving additional editing done by me. That, of course, could be a technical error.

    So, How can you help me?

    1. Please help me point out any mistakes that I might not be seeing.
    2. Are the articles worth reading? Are they readable, engaging, and informative? These might seem like stupid questions, but HubPages is making me doubt my own writing skills.
    3. If these articles are published elsewhere, would you enjoy reading them? Okay, let's change the question. Are these articles worth being called samples?

    ps. Your help would really mean so much to me.

      I skimmed through your articles and I think these might be some of the issues.

      1. your article on niacinamide repeats the word too much in relation to the overall text. It could be seen as key word stuffing.

      2. your use of "Hola amigos" to start the article. Although I understand what you mean, it's possible that the use of non-English at the very start of the article, and not in quotations or in a definition later on, may be seen as violating the cardinal rule that articles must be in English. Try writing "Hello friends" and see what happens.

      3. Your formatting, while interesting, is not standard and does not conforrm to grammatical rules. For example you have entire lines (but in effect paragraphs) consisting of one word. I realize you are doing this for emphasis and so on, but it may be that HP does not like it.

      4. Your style may be considered overly colloquial or too informal. Here is a typical example of what I mean. "Yep. That is right. You read it correctly."

      I would try re-writing at least one more article avoiding some of the mistakes I highlighted above and see what happens.

      There may of course be other issues but these are the ones that jumped out at me.

          You're welcome. I also had a look at your featured article about chess. I noticed that that article has a more standard layout and introduction (setting out a question and then answering it). I have found that that type of article gets accepted, so you may want to re-write to more closely match the format of your chess article, because that is a good example of what gets accepted here.

            Hey, I edited the articles on what you told me. Let's see what happens. To be honest, I didn't expect that it would end up getting featured. I try to follow the advice you gave me.

    Hi, Serii. I took a look at your niacinamide article. I don’t think it’s unpublished at the moment because I can see it and it has ads on it. I think some of the changes that you’ve made are good.

    If you have any more problems with the article, I think there are some additional changes that might help. First, I don’t think you should be quoting the senior vice president of a cosmetics company that sells niacinamide or using the company as a reference source, even though the SVP has a background in skin care. Your other references are science and medical ones, which I think is good.

    Secondly, I still think that you should include one of the disclaimers that HubPages provides at the end of the article because niacinamide can have some unpleasant side effects.

      Hey, Alicia. Thanks for the response. It means so much to me. Seriously speaking, I began doubting my own writing. And, that of course is not much of a help. I'll try updating on the additional advice you gave me.

      Also, did you take a look at the third article? I seem to see no mistakes. But it keeps getting unpublished for some reason. Can you provide me some advice on that?

    Hi there,

    I looked at your kitchen article.

    You need to credit your images correctly and link back to the source. Your have . 'Pixabay, Public Domain'. Pixabay photos aren't PD, they are Creative Commons licensed. Also give the photographer/owner credit and link back to the actual photo.

    More here: … -image-use

    Add a caption that links the photo to the text. Make sure the photos illustrate what you are writing about. For example, close ups of pulls and knobs.

    Here's an example: … ls-2109441

    Add an article bio that includes your expertise in this topic.

    I wouldn't start with 'Hello there'. It looks a bit too informal. And is a waste of an opportunity to get your reader's attention and entice them to read on.

    Get rid of the reference to 'we'.

    Your subtitles must be consistent. Either follow APA capitalization, or keep them in sentence case; don't mix them.

    Good luck smile
