Hi,

The reason they were held back was because there were too few words (I have now released them for publishing).

We do not auto-publish articles unless there are over 100 words. This is because Google considers longer articles (as well as those with more media – pictures and videos) to be more highly ranked and worthy, as opposed to ‘comment’ pieces that very rarely will be considered newsworthy by them. The only exception to this rule is if the featured image is really the story itself, however this is very difficult for our systems to find automatically.

I hope this helps
