17 Rules To Follow To Prevent Your Article From Being Rejected

Kindly read the guidelines and abide by them before you hit the publish button. Consistent rejection may lead to frustration. You may also find the following tips useful so as to avoid your article from being rejected:

1) Don’t publish divisive articles e.g “Steps on how Biafra can achieve their freedom” It will be rejected.

2) If you continue violating the rules of the hub, you may be suspended.

3) Indicate on your headline when writing an opinion piece, let the word, ‘opinion’ come first EG

  • Why Buhari May Not Support A Northern Presidential Candidate in 2023 (Opinion) WRONG
  • Opinion: Why Buhari May Not Support A Northern Presidential Candidate in 2023 ACCEPTED

4) Indicate on your headline when writing a fictional story, let the word, “Fiction” come first EG

  • How I Spent 10 Years With A Man Who Kidnapped My Father (Fiction) REJECTED
  • Fiction: How I Spent 10 Years With A Man Who Kidnapped My Father ACCEPTED

NOTE: Write a fiction story that teaches moral

5) Don’t use the article rewriting tool, if you do it WILL be rejected

6) Avoid symbols in your headline

7) Don’t copy from another platform. Be creative. Copy and paste content will not bring in enough money for you. And you may be suspended.

8) Don’t use gory images in your content or as featured image. Photos of a dead body and someone with a serious bodily injury will be rejected.

9) Don’t use blur images as your featured photo

10) Make sure your headline is grammatical correct

11) Read your content to be sure it doesn’t contain factual and grammatical errors

12) Spell people’s names well. Nigeria’s president is Muhammadu Buhari NOT Mohammad Buhari, take note.

15) Avoid publishing defamatory content against anyone.

16) Stay away from publishing news of any group that has been proscribed by the government.

17) You can’t publish everything someone says on social media. For instance, if the opposition party calls the president “stupid”, opera news hub will not approve such content

How to earn more and win a bonus

  1. Choose a topic or category that is exciting to Nigerians
  2. Be simple as much as possible to connect your content with your audience
  3. Share your content with your followers on WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, and social mediaplatforms.
  4. Encourage your followers to read and share your content
  5. Choose a controversial topic, but be objective as much as you can so that you trigger your readers to air their views. If you’re going to take a side, do it sparingly.
  6. If you’re writing about sports, it is advisable to go for popular sports or league. English Premier League, La Liga and other popular leagues will earn you more readers. Writing about Saudi Arabia League, or Russia League may get you little or no audience in Nigeria.
  7. Avoid defamation in your content in order to scale through the quality control unit.
  8. You can install Grammarly on your device in order to minimize grammatical errors in your content.

You’ve published some content and it’s time to get paid, you don’t have to worry about bank delay. You earnings will automatically be credited into your Opay wallet, which is the official payment platform for opera news hub content creators.

How To Link Opera Hub to OPay account For Payment

Payment is made easy for content creators via OPay wallet. This means you will have to create an account and link to your hub profile page.

  • Step 1: First download Opay App from Google Playstore and verify your account
  • Step 2: On your opera hub dashboard home page, Click “Account”
  • Step 3: Scroll down and click Link Account

The first 10-digit of your phone number is your OPay Account Number e.g if your phone number is 08000000001, then your Opay account number will be 8000000001.

Click on SAVE, that’s all your Opera News Hub account is linked to your OPay account.

You can begin to receive your payment when you’re qualified.

  1. Hello, I’d be very grateful if you guys are responsive to my query as this is d only avenue I know to contact u. I Published a post on my Opera News Hub account, worryingly, I get this: “Your article was removed due to violation of community guidelines.”

    1. Hello, Abodunrin,

      Did you include “do-follow” links? Or did you include affiliate links or a link back to your own blog? We urge you to take your time to go through the T&C to know the articles that allowed on the platform.

      Please contact the support centre right on Twitter and Facebook.

      Twitter: @OperaHubSupport
      Facebook: @OperaNewsHub

  2. Please, how can I download the registration form. I’ve already registered and published one article. How do I make it official.

  3. Good day…
    I need some clarifications on the format that one needs to follow because I’ve written two articles and it been disproved saying the article is of irregular format whereas out of the three I wrote one was approved…
    What’s the format please?

    1. Hey Aramide,

      Please check this article again. The format is clearly stated. Some of them include: Article must be original, Must not contain affiliate links or sales pitch. In case you’re still having problem get your article approved, kindly contact @OperaHubSupport.

  4. Good day..I recently registered on this platform as an article writer and my articles got published..
    Question now is ,would I be contacted by their team before I become an influencers or there’s a certain level I must get to…I have seen people who became influencers a week after joining the platform..
    And also ,how does the payment work?

    1. Hi Daniel,

      Someone from Opera will contact you and mail the terms and condition to you. However, a source said they are now focusing on celebrities and those who are highly influential in a specific industry. Celebs have upper hand now.

  5. I made a mistake while filling my account,i wrote my O’pay account name instead of the O’pay account number. Since, I’ve been trying to edit it but to no reach.
    Where should i go in order to edit my account?

  6. Thanks for your article, It’s really inspiring. My question is this, how can I boost my facebook fans in order to qualify to apply? Secondly must I have accounts with both twitter and instagram or any one social media could serve? Thanks

    1. Hello Nkechi,
      You don’t necessarily need to have all the social media accounts. One is enough to get you qualified.

      However, at the time of this response, you need to be a SUPER celeb in a specific field for your application to be considered.

      Regarding facebook friends, I’m not sure that feature is available on Facebook. You can only boost your Facebook page to get more followers or a specific post on your page.

  7. Happy New Month and wishing us all good tidings and more achievements this month and beyond.
    I’d like to ask is there a total change in the contract signed? For in the contract it was stated that one would be paid fixed fee per article regardless the engagement as long as the person writes up to 10 or 20 articles. But the dashboard is saying different, that one wouldn’t get paid for fixed fee but by engagements alone.
    I am confused Sir or Ma’am

  8. Please I don’t know what exactly the problem I have been publishing since few days now and my viewer’s is over 2m each of my post but I haven’t get anything yet on my opay account, could you please tell me what May be the problem?

    1. If you started posting in December, you’ll be paid on or before January 15 if you reached the payment threshold.

      It’s N360 per 10k views on your post. Earning is calculated based on the views of each post not the aggregate of your entire post.

      Please read all our previous post on Opera News Hub on how to calculate your earning.

  9. Joseph Sylvia Oluchi

    Good morning pls if am approved on registration.
    1. What is the next thing to do? 2.And pls help to look into this calculation thing. One of my advert is 5.9k click won’t I get paid on it? Or must it be from 10k click per article before one receives his pay?
    3. Hope we that started in December will get paid too?

  10. Joseph Sylvia Oluchi

    Good morning, pls I try to apply for the on going writing competition. But this the response I get that I don’t have permission to use the URL. Pls help. Thanks

  11. So have started writing already and its saying published…but am yet to receive any contract signed and am scared I might not get paid at the end of the month…Am I good to go or I still need to sign a contract..plssss kindly reply

    1. You don’t need to be signed before you get paid based on your article. Lots of unsigned writes had been paid since the programme started and they will continue to be paid in as much the programme remains. Pls go ahead and create superb contents.

  12. Good day. Please, I’d like to know if it is compulsory one connects an opay account because I didn’t do that and my account was verified. If it is mandatory, please, I’d like to know how to go about it.

    Also, my first post is still under “Test Online”. I don’t really understand that. It has been there for hours now.

    1. Hello Praise,
      Opay Wallet is the mode of payment. Download Opay App to create an account, and go back to your Opera News Hub Account, scroll down and click on link with Opay. That’s all.

      If your post reads “Test online” it means your post must pass through the final review before you begin to see the impression and clicks of your post.

      “Test online means your post is being evaluated by Opera News users. You will have to successfully engage them in order to get your content published.”

        1. When you land at the page it says login with Facebook, on the opera news hub page, change your website to desktop version. Then login. You will see home, content library account etc. Click account and scroll down, you will see link your opay account. Was this helpful?

  13. Good day l sign up for the opera news hub and l have been approved. The problem here is that will my title be approved before l get to write the full article.

      1. Am kindof confuse, after opening Opay account and been verified, is it a most to still scan yout details and send it to opera news gmail account for verification

  14. Emmanuella Uwakwe

    Please, my shared articles when opened does not take me or anyone else through the app to read the story. It just opens without any option to comment or make any reaction on the post. I’m afraid that the views are not counted. Please what could be the problem?

    1. When you shared an issue, the link first takes the reader to a browser, from there he has an option to continue the reading on the app. Will put an article up about this.

  15. One of my articles has reached 10k clicks and now its showing test online.. What does that mean and also I’m unable to see the withdrawal, how do I know the money is intact. When is the payment

  16. Nice article, just registered but were it says Opay account number, the information requested for 11 digit number and not 10; so I input My Opay phone number.

          1. Hey Eric, when your article shows test online you need not be bothered provided it complies with the rules. It’ll surely show your data again once it’s passed. Keep calm.

    1. Hi Dennis,

      Read the rules and regulations. Avoid using Breaking News in your headline, don’t copy other people’s content, don’t use someone’s photo unless it is related to the story etc. Please follow OperaNewsHubAcademy on the app to read more about the rules guiding the Hub.

  17. I tried to publish an article this evening and it’s displaying “article text error” what could that mean I’m confused.

  18. Please i don’t understand o, the TIN they are asking for in the dashboard without it won’t they pay me? Cus i feel that should be for signed writer, as some of us are students who might work for a while and stop

  19. Shuan B Benjamin

    I want to join but my problem is I don’t have up to 1000 influencer on Instagram and Twitter but I have more than 1000 friends on Facebook.

    Please. Enroll me in. Can you?

    1. Hello Benjamin, you don’t really need to have that number of followers any longer. Check for the registration link here, start creating original and engaging content and start earning.

      Register HERE: hub.opera.com/home/publish

  20. Two questions.

    1. You said you write 5 articles per day. How do you find ideas or topics on what to write about?

    2. Do you submit your articles all at once or you submit them individually at different times of the day?

    1. Hello Okeke,
      1) Ideas are on Twitter (tweets by prominent people like politicians, public affairs analysts etc); you can also find useful ideas on national dailies, or ideas from your conversation with people. Ideas are everywhere.

      2) You could draft your contents when you’re free and publish at once if your article isn’t time-bound.

      If you’re jumping on breaking news, it means you’d have to publish as you’re done for it to get the impressions/clicks.

      It’s always great to get the news across to your potential reader when the news is hot and fresh.

  21. Hello admin my account was disqualified from publishing articles related to COVID-19 and Politics. Please can I get this fixed

  22. Pls how can I combine my two accounts?
    I first registered one account but after having published many articles I decided not to use the tag mane againg, so I opened a new account with the username I prefer.
    Now I don’t want to have two accounts. How can I marry them, or can I maintain the two accounts?

  23. Good day sir..
    Pls I would like to ask what that monetization button is for on the website and when it will unlock because it has been displaying “feature coming soon” when I keep trying to click on it.
    And again, are there chances of me getting paid on the 15th of this month, I just started at the beginning of this month but I’ve been getting enough comments and clicks (like over 100 comments per article).

    1. Dickson Oshoma

      I mistakenly deleted my opera news app I have downloaded another one but I am unable to trace my account what shall I do?

    1. The number of article depends on the grade of your account level, so I learnt. One of the hub writers said the number of articles you post per day may increase base on your continued performance: continue to post original articles, avoid bad articles, and abide by the hub’s rules.

  24. Please how can I register on the Opera mini news hub account, because I have a lot of stories that I will like to share .

    1. Hello Valentina,

      I guess you’re on level 1. Write more original contents and be consistent, you MAY be upgraded thereby increasing the number of posts you can publish per day.
