I don't know why we can't have a specific direction when it comes to moderating our hubs. If you can't do that, then we need some sub-moderation options or new terminology for the moderation of "over promotional." Personally, I don't care who moderates my articles. I would appreciate a straight forward answer before I spend the next month trying to get it published. Just saying.
You just need to click on the warnings on your Hub, you will usually find the answer there. If not, you need to set aside some time to read the rules. If after all that you're still stuck, you can email the team @ hubpages.com
However, "overly promotional" usually means you have more than two links to the same domain.
Sorry for the frustrating experience, lyricwriter. I don't see any recent emails from you in the team inbox, so if you would like more clarification on a moderation, I encourage you to contact us.
Thanks for your help, ParadigmSearch and Marisa. Overly promotional can also mean a Hub is keyword stuffed.

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?

I'm pretty new to HubPages (joined 6 weeks ago but got "busy" about 2 weeks ago posting Hubs) -- I got spanked last week and had a hub taken down temporarily for citing direct links to the particular...

Wouldn't it be nice if some explanation about the hub came with the above mentioned notices. All you get is the general notice that you hub is overly promotional or substandard and it needs to be fixed. If...

I understand that too many outbound links can mark a hub as 'overly promotional."I am wondering if there is a work-around, since I am considering a hub about various resources that people might be looking for, and...
