How To Find Your Live, Draft, Denied and Pending Articles on InfoBarrel

By Edited Jun 26, 2014 4 17

Finding Your Articles

To find your Live Article, Draft Articles, Denied Articles, and Pending Articles follow these 3 steps.

1. Click on the Open Nav Bar link at the top right of every page to open the navigation bar.

2. Once the navigation is opened, click on the "My Content" link. This will load a new page.

3. Once this page has loaded, you should see 4 tabs, Live Article, Draft Articles, Denied Articles, and Pending Articles. By clicking on any one of these tabs you will see a list of your corresponding articles.

Understanding the My Articles Page

On the My Articles page there are 4 tabs, Live Article, Draft Articles, Denied Articles, and Pending Articles. Under each tab is a list of the corresponding articles on your account. Each article will have an [edit] link, and for the draft, denied and pending articles, a [delete] link as well.

Clicking on the [edit] link, you will be taken to a page where you can edit that version of the article. For example if you have an article, let's call it Test Article, that has been published and is live on the site but you have also been working on some changes to it and have saved those changes as a draft, you will see a version of that article in both the Live Articles and the Draft Articles. So if you wanted to continue your draft, you would click the [edit] link next to Test Article under your Draft Articles.

The [delete] link works in the same manner. If you decide that you are unhappy with the draft of Test Article you have saved and want to get rid of it, you can click the [delete] link to remove that version from your articles. Not to worry, deleting a draft, denied or pending article will NOT delete the live version.

The Denied Articles have one more link, [reason for denial]. By clicking the [reason for denial] link, you can see the reason your article was denied so that you can go back and make the correct changes so it can get published.

I decided to delete an article after I created it. Wanted to move from the "create your own" template over to "how to" template. After deleting this draft, I was unable to use that title again. Any way to use that title again? No one else claimed that title.

What is the approximate turnaround time from publishing an article pending to acceptance or denial? I know, they are my first two, just published last night and today, and I am just anxious to find out if they are "up to snuff" and/or acceptable writing/material.

Hi Bonny,

We usually try to get to articles within 24 hours of it being submitted. Sometimes it may take a bit longer if we experience higher than normal volume of articles.

I was working on any article today about babysitting but when this site was having problems so my article didn't save. I tried again to put my article on the site and publish it but it says that the title is already in use but it wasn't being used the first time I tried to publish it. I can't find the article in pending or draft or anywhere else. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I spent an entire day working on an article that I thought was an excellent help to beginning oil painters, along with trying to fix Mozilla Firefox issues with copy and paste. Perhaps I made some mistakes and I'm okay with that, but it appears that shortly after it was accepted and "live" it was suddenly rejected and...deleted. It left no reason why and I clicked on the link to have someone find the denial reason but with no response yet. Am I missing something or do I have to start from scratch and possibly make the same mistakes again? Maybe thats why some people advertise that they pay $10 to have someone else write their articles..???...Not Happy.

What topics can we write about? I have had some articles denied for inappropriate content, but they are about subjects that aren't inappropriate,e.g. gift ideas for friends. What makes it even worse is there are already lots of articles on Infobarrel about the same topic.

To determine if a topic is appropriate, read over the Google Adsense Terms of Service. Thanks
