Hey people. I'm an old-timer round here and I have a beef / suggestion
I have 207 hubs most written between 08-11 and they are mostly in the 50,000 views. Some hits, many clunkers. My issue is simply this, if you are gonna change your product selling policy and want only 1 ad per 100 words then YOU REMOVE THEM!. Why the hell should I spend another day polishing these hubs when HubPages wants to limit the ways in which I make money from the Hubs?
Think about it. It's your issue, you deal with it. Not to be a jerk but you are the one making the issue, you fix it. Since you got the time to count words.....
There should be an opt in for Hubpages to manually adjust to their own specs.
If you opt-in to HubPro, and HubPages decides your pages are worth it, that's exactly what they do.
relache, you still kickin around too? What my dear is HubPro?
HubPro is something that does just what you were griping about, which you will have been opted into since you have no idea what it is, and therefore have not opted-out, and which a bunch of people are about to show up and tell you to avoid like the plague even though they've not done it.
Given how HubPages is going these days, it's kinda of amazing that's a genuinely accurate answer.
Curious if you'd mind expanding on the whole "way HubPages is going these days". Haven't been around in forever. Still in touch with my favorite hubbers but thru facebook. Is The Hub doing well these days?
HP will remove them -- by unpublishing the offending hubs. Problem solved.
+1 My thoughts exactly. HP will do the job, but the hubber may not like the result.
Hmmm, so you saying that rather than delete the offending amazon ad/broken link HubPages would be more inclined to unpublish your work? That seems like cutting off your nose to spite your face on their part, no? Why would they do that? I miss Maddie Ruud. Whenever The Hub was buggin me about something, she would always work it out for me.
I agree. If they think amazon ads are holding them back, why not just remove them for good? They can easily define preset ad positions for each hub and every user should be able to place a number of ads based on how long his hub is.
Not that it matters, if you ask me. We all saw what happened to squidoo and there is no reason to belief HP would avoid the same tragic fate.
Off topic, I still fail to understand why would someone with the capacity to write 200+ articles would not set up his own darn site and write by his own rules, making a lot more money in the process...

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 just found a (!) warning on one of my Hubs, due to two broken links to my own Hubs. Clicking on the links led to 404 error pages. But the pages the links were supposed to go to still exist, and are still published and...

Today I have had several alerts for broken links in my hubs that turned out to be videos and all were actually working when I tried playing them,

Hello,I try not to make waves with "How Hubpages Operates" and I am not sure if this singular problem is having a huge effect or not.But, I've noticed that many hubs I had connected to other hubs via...

Have you had this happen to you? I searched for the highlighted broken link but I could not find one. So how do you clear the notice?
