What is Cash Gifting

    I just published a hub on quotes about money titled "How to Make Money."   I saw a warning that the hub appears to be about cash gifting. What is cash gifting?

      "Cash Gifting" is a term that was used in pyramid schemes where people are told that they can "gift" or receive "cash gifts" up to $50,000 per year without being taxed.  While that is true, the term is a lure for people to get scammed.

        A "cash gift" is a donation.  The warning is to deter people who are attempting to collect money directly via solicitation in their Hubs, as that is deemed overly promotional.

      I wonder if the problem isn't the title itself. It could be an article about counterfeiting.  If I were searching for quotes about money, that's what I'd type for in my search.  In your article....are they serious quotes about money, funny quotes, quotes by famous (or wealthy) people?  Then your title could be, "Money Quotes by Wealthy People," or Hilarious Quotes About Money," or "Quotes About Money, Let's Get Serious."      It seems to me that the key words you'd want in your title would include the words, "money quotes."     What do you think?

        I didn't give the entire title. It is "How to Make Money: Quotes by Famous People" on money.  The quotes run the gamut, wry, witty, serious, funny, etc. Some good advice, some humor, some science.  Anyway, I can see why the title suggests a pyramid scheme.  I googled the "how to make money" and all I fond on the first 2 or  pages were good articles, so pyramid schemes or counterfeiting did not occur to me. The notice did not prevent my hub from being published so no harm done.  I just had never heard of cash gifting before.

          I googled the phrase. here's what I found, in case anyone else is curious.Generally, these gifting "circles," "clubs," or "groups" encourage participants to pay a substantial entry fee (which can range anywhere from $500 to $5,000 or more).  This entry fee will guarantee the participants a place on a chart of members.  The participants will move on the chart every time they recruit more people into the "circle" or "club." 

          Aside from frequent use of the word money, there is nothing in this hub to suggest cash-gifting.  The HP algorhythm for this has to be more sophisticated. It shouldn't be flagging hubs for using the word money.

            I guess everything OK.  The hub just got its opening hub score. It is 87.  My hubs usually start out with a much lower score
