    Hi friends,

    i created a hub last week and it got unpublished on the next day.i did edited it and submitted on the next day.

    but till now [nearly a week] it still shows "Submitted For Publication".

    I thought the process will take 72 hours at the most,but seems not.is this is how it works or i am not aware any other rules.



    Thanks in advance.

    Sometimes it does only take 72 hours. However, moderators are behind. wink Send an email to Team@Hubpages.com and ask.

      thanks for the help.

      after getting unpublished i tried my at most best in all aspects to get it approved,so i am very interested to see whether my current writing skill is enough for hubpages or not.

      because of that i have checked my account 100 times to see what's the result of my correction but sadly still no reply.

      i understand that MODs needs time to help members,but it would be nice if get the result today smile

        Yes it would be nice to get a response today. However, it's not as simple as you might think, simply because too many hubs are being sent to moderators that way- "submitted for publication". Many hubbers are editing or revising hubs, which use that particular command, just like you did. wink

    These days moderators are very busy with content issues. The delay is reasonable.

    Heya pedrosa - mdlawyer and Cagsil are right - our moderation team is a bit overloaded right now with training new moderators and dealing with backlogs, so hold tight, and thanks for amending your Hub!

      no problem simone smile

      i got reply from hub pages today,

      Thanks for the reply.


      my hub got unpublished again and the following Moderator note has been given,

      Problem: Substandard (see below for details)

      Moderator Note: Tags are keyword-stuffed



      is that mean correcting tags will solve problem or still i got to correct other problems because it shows substandard.

      also if i need both of those correction can you tell me what exactly is the problem, grammar or poor formatting

      it would be  a great help.

        Substandard would be along the lines of grammar, spelling and sentence structure. Also, if it is short, you could run into problems. Make sure the article is over 500 words, just to be on the safe side.

        As for the "keyword-stuffed", it means there are too many of the same keywords stuffed into your content.

        Try to go along the lines of 9-15 keywords/tags(two word phrases) for articles up to 1500 words. Articles that are longer than 1500 words, you can use up to 40 keywords/tags(two word phrases)

        I say "two-word phrases", because single words are not targeted enough and technically are too broad in description.

          Thank you so much friend,

          but

          Problem: Substandard (see below for details)

          Moderator Note: Tags are keyword-stuffed

          means tag problem is not within substandard problem,so got to correct both.

          [b]Thank you so much for the reply[b]

            You apparently only need to address the issue with tags. Being "keyword-stuffed" means you have too many keywords stuffed into your content. So, substitute some of the keywords for similar or same meaning type words.

    Do you know someone with good grammar skills? This looks like a problem in the hubs I have read.

      thanks michael for letting me know that my grammar is not in good standard.

      will try to improve in future with the help of internet.

      [b]can you let me know whether it's aweful or it's average.[b]

      Thanks again

        You are welcome pedrosa. This will help with your hubs I think.

    i do understand that hubpages is very busy in certain things.

    but it's getting very long to get reply to "submitted for publication" hubs.

    trying for nearly 2 weeks to get it approved still no sign of it,

    i understand i resubmitted twice still one took 1 week and another seems more then that.

    i checked the hub and it seems it's in top position for certain keywords meaning quite a few hits.

    i understand that it's my mistake why it's in the review but it would be nice if it takes 72 hours.


    i am in no intention to say hub pages support is not great,it is great and i clearly understand the busyness of hubpages,but can anything be done except certain facts

      Pedrosa I have had four of my hubs unpublished and back in a few hours to 48 hours (that is when the weekend came between). If you have made all the changes before resubmitting it , the HP team does promptly put it back . I have  learnt in my communication with the team if the subject of your  email  says it all you get prompt attention.
      So check all the factors and send an email with the subject saying what you exactly want . I hope this helps.

      EDIT-  Spelling and grammar checks are important before sending for republishing. I just read one of your hubs and this may be the actual issue, get someone proficient in English to edit your hubs before you post them.

        pedrosaposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        thanks for the reply sofs,

        the important comment that was given to me through an email from hubpages when un publishing was to remove the keyword stuff work.

        i removed it all and added tags which are suggested by the site.

        i have sent an email to hubpages team sometime ago ,still waiting for the reply.

        About your comments about spelling and grammar : i will try my best in the future.

          btw, in the future i will send email to hubpages with the hits that you gave.

          hope i will get reply at least in another week.

          thanks again.

    Had a similar experience recently. Keep in mind that HP moderators and admin are all human too so it could take longer than initially expected, especially considering all of the recent bank holidays and what not!

    Glad to see that the problem was sorted and the Hub is now published. Keep up the great work smile

      i know that admin and moderators are HUMAN and not BOTS.

      it make take more then normal time,but because of the fact that i am quite new to creating and submitting hubs,i had  few doubts and etc,

      btw,thanks for the help.

        Don't you worry Pedrosa - I have a degree in creative writing and have a hub unpublished getting on two weeks it seems for substandard and or spun content.  It is neither [and does not lokk like either] and I have just sent my second email to the staff to ask what the problem is.  With no answer as yet I can only assume it was because I severely criticed Jason and the mods in a thread here.  I am working on other conspiracy and incompetence theories while I while away the hours waiting for a response.

          i have not even a bit of disappointment over hubpages or mods or admin,

          i was just too excited and liked to the see the result of resubmit,

          other then that no problem,

          thanks for the reply.
