I have received the following email each time I amend or update a hub. Mainly my poetry, photographic and music hubs - 'Your hub ....... falls below HubPages' quality standards and will not be Featured. Your Hub will remain published, but it will not be showcased on Topic Pages or Related Hubs listings. It will also not be made available to search engines.' Surely the quality checker should have different criteria to say 'article writing' - for creative writing hubs such as poetry, novels? I take pride in my work, love to share and read comments and this is really upsetting....WHY?

Some of mine are nearly three years old...very time consuming trying to make them fit the bill - particularly poetry hubs.
It looks like all hubs are scored but to which level they can score creativity is beyond me. it appears that it is not so much the content of the poems but the stuff that surrounds it. Too many non HB ads and a hub fails the QC *polls & media ne
I, too, have featured poems and they all have something-video, pics, ebay, links-so i don't think those could be issues.
Hi - Thank you I am in the midst of removing the amazon/ebay capusles so we will see. I haven't been very active on the hubs lately as I am caring for my 91 year old father in law who has advanced dementia - so I check out hubpages when I can.
Thanks for the advice sounds about right but also sounds like a lot of work on old hubs, some not far off three years old - can't understand why they don't just do it for new hubs. Any way I will give it a try though I know it will take some time...
Thanks I will try that...I have unpublished one or two until I can decide what to do with them...perhaps the same thing is true of my music hub...I will check.
Most comments received to this question have been extremely helpful - plus a really helpful tip on one of my poetry hubs with explanation of why it is falling short of the QC's -useful tip - remove ebay & Amazon ads add poll, ad video, own pictur
