All my hubs have been unpublished. I've read the rules, but still I don't understand why they are unpublished. For example: I have a hub about prostatitis. This hub first needed review before publishing. After one day I got an mail that it has been cleared for publication and is publushed. And know it's unpublished with all my other hubs? I had comments on my hubs that they found it interesting. So what's wrong? has anyone experienced the same? I've already contacted the hubpages team.
HubPages always tell us what is wrong and their reasons for unpublishing hubs. There may be different reasons for different hubs but you should have received an explanation.
Sorry to say that they do not always provide an explanation, I had a second account unpublished in its entirety.
That account had been flagged back in Feb as copied as I transferred the hubs from this account to separate the niche, every hub was unpublished then picked on for everything from keyword stuffing to watermarked videos. I dutifully did everything that they asked and everything was published after a moderator review.
Six weeks ago they unpublished the whole account again with no warning, the notes on the hubs were totally vague in that they don't meet standards. After a week I finally got a response from the HP team that alleged spinning (which I have never used) and some other issues. I asked for some specifics.. no response.. I took 6 hubs that were completely different and went through them removing any possible infringement that I could think of.. One week later still no response and no review of the resubmitted hubs.. So another "whats going on" email later I was informed that my account has been permanently banned!!
That is how much help you are likely to get!! I no longer trust the team here and will continue to diversify my work considerably across the net. This was the first place I wrote and had success and I like the platform; but I no longer trust the staff.
Vatijn, duplicate content is not allowed on HubPages. You can publish only original work that is your own.
I don't have duplicate content as far as I know. The example I gave of the hub about prostatitis. If it was duplicate they had to unpublish it when they reviewed it. But is was not. I just don't understand it. I think I'll just wait for a response.
Your very first Hub, which was called Brain, was duplicate content in its entirety. So now you know one possible reason why your Hubs might have been unpublished.

I thought I read the new rules about word count and Amazon links, etc. and I put in the time to fix every single hub that was on the list that HP emailed me. Apparently some hubs didn't make the list and now I'm...
