    I jeep getting this message;

    "Your Hub has been identified as incomplete or Poorly Structured. If this is the first time you've gotten an email like this, don't worry! You'll have an opportunity to fix it.

    Hubs that are empty or incomplete, contain misspellings or grammar that make them difficult to understand, or have awkward or difficult-to-read formatting (including the use of all capital letters) are poorly structured. Hubs with a full-width link, news, RSS, comment, or product capsule as the first capsule of the Hub are also prohibited.

    Similarly, Hubs with broken links or missing YouTube videos, Videos with distorted or low quality audio, or Videos that are unoriginal and/or poorly structured music slideshows do not meet publishing standards.

    Your Hub has been unpublished. When you are finished editing it so it complies with our Terms of Use, please click the "Submit for Publication" button. We will then review your Hub and publish it if it is no longer in violation."

    I have re-edited my hub many many times and still i get this message. WHAT IS GOING ON??????

      Give us a clue on the title. It might still be in the Google cache.

      The mods here seem to take particular delight in messing with Celts of any shade. So don't be disheartened.

          Well, to be honest, there are a few shortcomings.

          One is that it is a very short page. Google will not approve.

          Two, you don't credit the image which might come from here: hxxp://www.thekitchn.com/quick-and-easy-recipe-yogurt-c-118366

          Three, you say that if you don't want to use the dairy-free ingredients suggested then you could use the normal ones (without saying what the normal ones might be).

          Also, it is hard to see how the slice of cake pictured could come out of a muffin case or tray.

      Contact the Hub team directly and they will inform you as to what exactly needs correcting.

    Email hubpages. If you continue to edit and publish you may get banned for continuously trying to publish hubs that are substandard. Email them and ask questions about your hub. Don't keep editing and publishing blindly! Good Luck.

      Yeah, don't give up. I put out absolutely terrible pages, sometimes. Though, I try to fix them before visitors from the real world turn up.

      How can I email them? I can't seem to find any email address, and i've gone through all the FAQ's and the learning centre.
      Thanks for the advise though it's helping me

    Hi Emmy,  the FAQ section might be useful to you, if you have not discovered it, (they are well hidden) and are at the foot of the page. http://hubpages.com/faq/

    There is lots of info there but too much to digest in one go, so it might be best to just read the bits you need first. Use of images might be worth looking into as some online images are copyright while others are public domain.

    The Learning Center has hubs about making pages here and some videos on this too you will find a link at the FAQ section.

    Good luck, we were all new once and had to work through learning the HubPages way of doing things.

    Don't panic. Follow all the geat advice other hubbers have given you,-learning center FAQ's and so on - go through each step to rectify whatever is wrong and you'll get there in the end.

    It is disconcerting to get these kinds of messages.I got a terrifying 'duplicate content' message on one of hubs and it turned out I hadn't quite done enough to check the source, which I thought was out in the public domain.

    You'll learn fast if you follow sound advice and in months to come you may well be giving tips to absolute beginners!

    Your aubergine rolls recipe is plagiarised directly from
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/stuff … roll_85751

    This hub will most likely be unpublished too, since Hubpages does not look kindly on material being copied from elsewhere.

    If this also applies to other hubs you have produced, I suggest you unpublish them yourself rapidly, before your whole account gets banned.

    You shouldn't list 'google' as an image source.  Being on the internet does not make an image free to use.
