        Fergie, yes - if someone told you to keep it short and sweet, they gave you a bum steer.

        HubPages is a place to write quality, informative articles.  A typical Hub is at least 400 words long and the most successful are 800 - 1,500 words long. Think of what you'd see in a high street magazine - successful Hubs are either like an article, or like a promotional feature. 

        The text has to be unique, not copied from anywhere else on the net even if you wrote it.

        I dont think there is need of an apology. We all do mistakes in our lives.

        Don't worry. Look up and try to improve yourself. No one is perfect smile

        There is always...always room for imporvement

      Please take what I am about to say as me being honest, I am not trying to be mean, or rude.
      Your English needs a lot of work "tho" on your profile page stuck out like a sore thumb.
      You had 23 hubs now you have 0...Either you unpublished them, or every one of them was flagged.
      I suggest you spend some time reading on how Online Content Writing, SEO, Promotion etc works before attempting another hub. Read through the FAQ, and Forums here...You will find a ton of useful information.
      Also follow some of the other successful hubbers like Relache, Misha etc.
      Hope this helps a bit, again not trying to be mean, just honest. (And no my grammar isn't perfect before someone points it out...That is what my grammar checker is for smile

        lol lol lol That's true, but I didn't check to see if any of the content was stolen from other places. I only check on quality. smile

    No there isn't a limit to the number of hubs you can produce, but the object is to produce QUALITY HUBS not blog posts

    I have flagged 8 hubs that are not quality, up to the standard of HubPages.

    I looked at only one, but the one I saw was of low quality.  Too little content, basically just an ad for something at another site and a link promised, but not given.  It's possible that it is one of the same ones that Cagsil flagged.

    You need to spend more time on individual hubs before posting them.  Make sure they are full of good content, original, filled with added interest provided by pictures and possibly videos. 

    You need to unpublish all of the substandard ones and check any you leave up to be sure they are adequate, even before you work on improving the substandard ones.

    Super low quality... Every last one says "click the link below for more info" yet there's no link.

    Some of the hubs are less than 150 words. Not worth my time or anyone elses.


    No there's no time limit or limit to the number you can produce, but you couldn't have spent too much time writing 23 hubs in 33 hours, or even the 15 that are left published in 33 hours, considering during some point you had to have slept a few hours.

    is very very similar to your hub.

    http://hubpages.com/hub/Anxiety-to-Rest

    Could you be copy and pasting to publish hubs?

    IzzyMposted 7 years ago

    It's exactly the same as far as I can see.
    Fergie, I looked at your hubs too, so don't get excited about the traffic spike.
    Too short, poor spelling, and at least one is copied.
    Also, text-speak does not go down well on a writer's site.

    Definately not the right approach to hubpages in my opinion. None of your hubs I've read so far were worth reading.

    fergie27,

    You'll find that many of the Hubbers who participate in forums are very involved, are very good writers, and are justifiably very protective of HubPages and its reputation. 

    It's quite possible that in your eagerness to be a part of what is a great self-publishing platform, you did get some wrong ideas about how things work here.  It's not the same as in some other sites on the internet.

    Do take the time to read the FAQs and other helps provided by HubPages, and spend time too in reading other forums threads - especially in the HubPages Forums: Need Help?; Knowledge Exchange; and Extreme Hub Makeover.  Oh, and of course the excellent links that Cagsil provided.  You might also browse through an array of Hubs, just to see how others have put some of them together.

    As you work on and publish some good Hubs here, you will find that other Hubbers are very, very helpful, and they are quite willing to help you to succeed here, if that is what you really want.  Just be sure to check first to see that you are following the HubPages guidelines.

      Hiya Habee my thoughts exactly.

  14. Aficionada profile image89
    Aficionadaposted 7 years ago

    There were about 25 or so earlier today.  Based on the comments of various Hubbers (including me), fergie has taken them down - probably to work on them.
