Hi all, I am new and just posted my new Hub. However when I went to publish it, I got this message about not being or meeting requirements. But it doesn't tell you exactly what the problem is. I thought it was a good post, good information which I put a lot of effort into.
Can anyone give me some tips and suggestions on what to do and how to create a good Hub that will get approved the first time.
I would write an original hub with at least, say, 400 words. Add a few images, possibly also an embedded video. Use correct, or at least legible English. Avoid topics that may violate AdSense guidelines.
It is seldom for hubs to receive warnings. Observe the rules concerning overly promotional, substandard, and duplicate content; you should be fine.
I find the explanation of violate rules and substandard are a little broad. What exactly is substandard. In their eyes. What is over promotional, does that mean using sales copy type of writing?
I write my own content, but I still had this message about being substandard etc.
Are you allowed to have links in your Hub say to, your own website etc?
I think the rules are clear enough, as these are described in the FAQs. You have been given ample guidance on your previous thread: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/71140
You should take the time not only to read up on the rules, but also to read hubs by other Hubbers whose interests are comparable to yours.
Well if you have read the FAQ's and think you comply with all the rules and still have doubts you should mail firstname.lastname@example.org. This I doubt from the questions you have asked.. May be it will help to read it again .
Very short, copied , personal , improperly written content etc can be viewed as substandard.
You are allowed to place two outbound links from your hub.. more is considered over promotional
You should have at least 50 words for each Amazon product that you choose to display
Hope this helps.
You're allowed a maximum of 2 links to your own website (or another website you will gain from ie: affiliate links) within a hub, any more than this is called overly promotional. Sales copy is fine as long as it's written well, isn't spun, duplicate or of a poor standard of English.
Here's a list of the things considered substandard: http://hubpages.com/faq/#substandard
Go through and check your hub for each one to see if you can identify the problem. If not email email@example.com and ask them to be more specific about what the issue is.
Thank you all for your input, I think I have a better underestimating of this now. Not sure what you all mean about an Amazon product, what do you mean there?
What is meant write 50 words for each Amazon product, how do you add Amazon Product into your HUB? If I knew how to do this, how do you write 50 words for the product. Haven't seen this either.
You sound like you would benefit from a visit to the Learning Center. You'll get a LOT of helpful info there,

Should HubPages post a hub on Facebook if it has grammatical errors in the summary?I just saw such a hub on Facebook. I think this reflects poorly on our community and rewards substandard work.
