I'm starting to get a bit irritated with Hubpages. They have de-featured one of my Hubs. First of all they told me to get rid of all the product advertising boxes which I did.
Then they told me to get rid of "spammy elements". I can't see what they are talking about. I only have two links to prodcuts which are relevent to my Hub subject.
So now, as far as I can tell, Hubpages want me to move the links to two products.
Given that I spent a lot of time mantaining and writing the hub, I'm a bit resentful that they seem to want me to remove a source of income. In fact, I'm wondering why I don't just move all my content over to my own hosted Wordpress site and monitise it from there with no constraints.
Am I missing something here? Is there something in the page which is "spammy" and which I haven't recognised?
Any feedback would be appreciated: http://hubpages.com/autos/How-to-preven … e-your-car
The rules on HubPages is that you are allowed only TWO links to the same domain in a Hub. That includes Amazon unless you are using HubPages' Amazon program (i.e. their capsules). I wonder why you're not using the HubPages program - most HubPages readers are from the US so you are actually better off using the US program than the UK one. The HP Amazon capsules are also much more visible and attractive to the reader than a text link.
Anyhow, that still leaves the problem that you do appear to have only two links, so you'd think that would be OK. I suspect it's the fact that the links appear to include a lot of surplus code that's triggering the filter.
As for moving to your own site - it's a big learning curve but yes, if you have a specialist subject then ultimately I'd say, what are you waiting for, it will pay off better in the end.

I just logged in and it shows every single one of my hubs highlighted in pink, to need review. The majority of these were well trafficked and featured hubs or editor's choice. Did something happen? I tried looking in...
