In an effort to help our members better understand why their articles are being not-accepted yet, four new Problem Article statuses have been added to the list that our Editors can use.
1) Grammar/Spelling/Punctuation >> Article Body Cut-off
Please review your article body as it appears the article body ends abruptly. Please edit your article to close the thought, remove it, or add the missing language so that it is complete and resubmit for Editorial review.
2) Invalid Link >> Lack of Quality Content
Your article has been placed in problem status for linking to a page consisting primarily of advertising rather than informative content: In order to ensure a quality user experience, we can only accept links which direct to pages which are content-rich beyond advertising and products for sale. Please edit your article to link directly to the content-rich pages on your site, or edit the link to add additional informative content and resubmit for review.
3) Invalid Link >> Links to an existing EzineArticles article
You can link to EzineArticles.com in your URL providing you are linking to an article in a series or you are linking to your EzineArticles Expert Bio page. Your link does not fall into either of these 2 categories and will need to be changed. Please make the necessary changes and resubmit for Editorial review.
4) Resource Box Length
We would like to help you get this article approved but there is an issue which needs to be resolved first. Your resource box is longer than we recommend. Please keep the size of your resource box so that it’s no larger than 15% of your total article size and resubmit it for Editorial Review.
We routinely review our problem article status codes to fine tune them with the end-goal of helping our members know specifically how to fix an article so that it can be approved on the 2nd try.
