    Im kind of confused of how articles are being scored. Im still working on with the 5 articles for QA purposes and I just noticed that one of the articles I written scored higher than the recent one I published but this particular article didnt passed and been getting back to a draft while the other one passed and been featured. I have been working on to edit it for quite awhile but it still not being accepted. Am I missing out something?

      Hi Aisha,
      You might have received any email from HubPages editors regarding the article that's not getting featured. Maybe, it contains some spammy elements or maybe you are not crediting photos on your articles, third possibility could be the referral links, if any, are not matching to your article. If, the article contains any amazon capsule remove it and try to publish again.
      Hope it will help

        Thanks Misbah, Yes, I received an email about that and Im just confused because there are no amazon capsule links in it, properly credited photo just like on the other articles I published. For spammy elements though Im not sure which exactly they are pertaining too. At first I thought I was using too much of the same word so I edited and resubmitted but its still being rejected. As a matter of fact I revised it 3 times already and been rejected 3 times.

          Are you using any referral links?
          If yes, don't remove at first. I would suggest that you to hide the capsule and submit it again. Are you using the correct disclaimer? Or are you using any hyperlinked words? If yes, remove and try again

            There is a facebook link in it though but not a referral kind. Is that something I should remove? I include it because I think its relevant as I use it as source for the article and yes Im using a disclaimer for opinion.

              I think Facebook link is not an appropriate link. Maybe it's good to remove and publish back. I hope it will get featured then

                  One more thing if you're using any links from HubPages that are of any niche sites. This also creates a problem

                    No, it's the other way. It is that niche sites should not link to Hubpages.

                    You were right CYong, The link to Letterpile was not a problem, as the article is still featured.

                    I think the problem was from any other links. I also have hidden a capsule containing links in the particular article. I think any of that link was creating that problem.

                    That's truly strange because I don't see any problem with these links. I just hid them as the article can go fine being Opinionated.

      Judging from this thread, it seems your English could use some work, along with punctuation and grammar.

        Wonderlynd, please don't take offense to my comment. This is an American-based format. That said, we have many writers who do not hail from the U.S. However, those who are successful have mastered the English language, hard as that may be. I know our language has more exceptions to the rule than the romance languages and others, but proper English, grammar, and punctuation, in addition to well-written articles that answer questions, educate, or entertain is what will make you successful in HubPages/Maven.

        Welcome and I wish you success!

    I see. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experience. I will work on editing my article and will also research and check on other hubbers how they properly do it. I appreciate you both.

    Thanks CYong and Misbah for sharing your thoughts. Im still learning and trying to familiarize how it works. I appreciate your feedback Bravewarrior, I admit Im not a native speaker as I came from a different country but everyday I work on this. It also helps that the nature of my job allows me to talk to different people especially Americans.
