I reviewed my article since it was flagged as over promotional. I don´t get it, my hub reviews a product, so its obvious the entire article is about the product. I do not entice people to buy it or to click on alink promoting it. Actually most of the article is very critical of the product. I have two capsules, Ebay and Amazon, and changed the title thinking that could be the issue, but don´t see why. I have no links to other articles about Canada Goose, although I was intending to do so, so users can find realted content that I have written.
Here it is for anyone that can be of ay help to me: http://davidtrujillo.hubpages.com/hub/B … ull-Review
SO what is exactly that I am Over promoting? Are product reviews illegal in Hubpages?
You have three photos attributed to CanadaGoose.ca and three attributed to upscalehype.com. You have not hyperlinked the attributions but maybe this is still the issue.
Find some photos that you are sure are PR photos released by the makers for article writers to use. Then use them without attribution.
Thanks, I though the attributions was actually something correctly done.
Is there a way to search for PR photos with Google Images?
'Thanks, I though the attributions was actually something correctly done. '
Did these sites give you permission to use the images? If they did not, you should not use them unless you have good reason to think they are PR photos.
If you lift images from Amazon you can be pretty sure no one will object.
Perhaps the issue is with three photos to one place. I know that with the hyperlinks, HP will let you know that is too much. You can't have more than two links to any one site. Even without the hyperlinks, maybe the three photos to one place was noted. Maybe that's the problem?
I think that was it, and I have the feeling the system is flagging me, not a moderator since once I re-publish it a un-publish nottification comes rather quickly just the same as the first one.
I´m waiting till the end of the day for a human response to not re-aply and fail again to their standards.
Why not just try to republish without any pics? Start to narrow down the issues.
You may want to contact the moderators/admin for their specific reasoning, as they made the call on your Hub instead of making attempts based on blind guesses from other site users.
Thanks everyone, I gfot a repsonse from the moderators
It was the canadagoose.ca and upscalehype.com links.
Well, we learnt something.
I try not to use picture captions or attributions at all, if I can help it. There was once a blackhat scam to stuff keywords into alt tags to make pages rank higher. Google noticed obviously and it is now an area where you need to be careful.
Hum, funny. I thought attrbutions and captions was a good thing to enforce. Now I will only add descriptions that have no reference at all, if I ever decide to write one again.
