    My poem 'A Drink of Sweet Taste' is already a published poem in hubpages. Can I add this poem in the contest?

    Couple of my followers have been asking me to enter it into the contest and I wasn't sure if I can or not. So can someone help me here please?

    I know there is a contest page but I would appreciate if some one helps me out in this.

    Thank you.

      If you're referring to this: http://hubpages.com/help/so-you-think-y … ite-online

      The contest is about writing online in ways that will attract views from search engines. The main judging criteria are as follows:

      -Long-tail, niche topic that has not been extensively covered online
      -Search-friendly title (mirrors common search terms)
      -Excellent writing (proper use of grammar, capitalization)
      -Unique, useful information (not copied from elsewhere online, full of details, examples, names, and figures)
      -Attractive formatting (avoidance of excessive link, eBay, or Amazon capsule -clutter, excessive bolding or italics, and all-caps)
      -Judicious use of relevant capsules (original photos (especially your own), video, maps, tables, links, news, etc.)

      Creative writing, in particular poetry, very rarely draws a lot of views from search engines or anywhere else online. Poetry also wouldn't fit into a lot of the other judging criteria unless you wanted to add quite a few words in explanation of the poem as well as other content.

    A link to the contest page would have been very helpful, so we'd be able to find what you need help to interpret.

    I do realize that is not a great answer, but it could maybe lead in the right direction.

    You can't enter hubs that are already published as far as I know.

    The rules state pretty clearly that only those hubs published during the contest dates are accepted.

      Without you Sofs we would despair
      Sit by computers pulling hairs
      While wondering the truth or not
      You have the wisdom, thanks a lot!

          That was how it was meant, a compliment. It was good to get a clear answer, especially since even finding the contest rules had proven time consuming.
