Please could someone help I submitted a hub last week and it contained 1 link to an external site.
When I submitted by hub I got an email a few days later stating that it was over promotional and it had a watermark logo on it.
I then decided to edit it and remove the logo entirely. I then rewrote the article and submitted it again. It came back as still being over promotional.
Not knowing what to do I deleted the article and decided to write a new one in a different format and content was also different. I then submitted it and was 100% sure that it was going to pass all scrutiny. This time again it came back within a few minutes as over promotional. I feel I have done enough to rewrite the article and provide quality information and even had the decency to delete an entire article which they stated was substandard.
My question is will hub pages highlight the specific areas that they need me to change as it is just a drain on my time guessing and resubmitting and for it to come back again as rejected.
From the FAQ:
My Hub was moderated for being overly promotional; what does that mean?
Purely promotional offers and Hubs designed only to promote other sites or businesses are not allowed. In particular, the following actions are likely to get your Hubs identified as overly promotional:
including more than 2 links to any one domain
linking to the same domain in the body of the text AND in an RSS feed
short "teasers" with links to "read more" at another site
linking to sites/pages/Hubs that are unrelated to your Hub's topic
including links to a page that contains largely the same content as your Hub
Please note that promotional links are links that you have any interest in promoting (your blog, your Website, affiliate offers, etc.). Links to well-known Web resources which you don't have any personal interest in (like Wikipedia, news sites, encyclopedias, open directories, etc.) are exempt from this limitation.

Hi just a quick suggestion!
The only hub you've published is really short in word length. Increasing hub lengths (1000 words +), using sub headings that you create and inserting images should stop the trigger and allow you one or two links of choice etc.

Someone recently stated that there are limits to how much you can link to your own hubs. Does anybody know the limitations?
