I had done a video as a first hub. I then got an email stating the following;
Your Video has been identified as Overly Promotional.
Overly Promotional means that your Video:
*Solely or excessively promotes another site, product, or service
*Links more than 2 times to a single domain
*Gives a short teaser and a link to "read more" or "continue"
*Links to a page that contains largely the same content as your Hub
*Has excessive Amazon or EBay capsules
Now, nowhere in the video am I repeatedly looking to push anything. This was just a straight video blog that I put out there. I put a picture up instead of a full on video to protect my identity. Why is this wrong? What did I do wrong so that I know not to do it again?
I only see one moderation on your account and it's "UnknownWoN's Divorce Guide", so I don't really have a means of providing feedback on the fish Hub.
That said, the following actions are likely to get your Hubs identified as overly promotional:
including more than 2 links to any one domain
short "teasers" with links to "read more" at another site
linking to sites/pages/Hubs that are unrelated to your Hub's topic
solely promotes a product, site, good, or service
including links to a page that contains largely the same content as your Hub
Hope that helps!
I didn't do any of those things though. I just made a video and had a picture on the video instead of my face that's all.
It would help if you specified which hub you are talking about, then the hubstaff can look at it and tell you exactly what the problem is.

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