    I want to know what makes hubs substandard. Can anyone help me?

      Thank you for your response.
      But, I have a question, if the hub contains many capsules with little content each while the whole hub has +700 words, may it be considered substandard?

        You are welcome. If the hub is perfectly readable and has sufficient content, overall, it doesn't matter how many capsules you have.

          Yes, "poorly formatted content" could be an issue.

        You need to have 50 words for every Amazon ad you have on your hub.

      Dr Sheha had over 70 hubs I believe, all put up inside 2 weeks of joining. They are still in the cache.

      I looked at 2 or 3 and they were were well laid out and informational, but very short - maybe 200/300 words.

      Perfect English, but perhaps not saying anything new that isn't out there on a dozen websites at least, and no personal input at all.

      It could have come straight from a booklet really, the type they hand out to patients to give them an overview of their condition.

      Not really wanting to second guess where they broke TOS, but I would suggest making them a lot longer and perhaps, as a doctor, adding a personal touch, an experience, something. I don't know.

        Some of Dr. Sheha's Hubs have wording and topic progression that are impressively identical content-wise to articles on the site.
