    Hi, have things changed? I have wrote 25 hubs and never had these problems. The moderates said to remove link to my website, but I do not have a link to my website on this page, it is on my profile. I do not know what else to do different! Need help please. Thank you!

      Just checking... all the photos from Flickr are Creative Commons?

      I'd remove the links at the bottom. I know they are to hubs but just take them out temporarily and see what happens.

      Great recipes smile

      Remove the links at the bottom of the page.

      Also, although I want to assume that each of these recipes is your own, it sure looks like all you did was collate some photos and recipes from the web and make a list of them. 

      Work you place on HP is supposed to be original, but it's hard to tell whether these recipes are ones you,personally developed. If not, you shouldn't be posting them in a hub.

      You can find similar ones all over the net, so it is unlikely that anybody will find or read yours. 

      Also, you have not credited the photos.  Are they public domain?  Do you have permission to use them?

      These things all matter when creating a hub, so you have to be careful when doing so, especially when it comes to recipes.

        Thanks so much for taking time to help! All of my photos are credited. I have been doing recipes for a long time, people do find and read them. Hubpages sent me info my hubs are in top 3% were readers stay on the page the longest to read them. Take care, thanks again!

          Credited is not the same as legal to use. They must have a Creative Commons license.

    Hello Margie,

    The moderates have asked you to remove the link which you have put under source section in your photos. Please check the following directions:

    Right way to source photos:
    For instance:
    Source: Flicker
    Source: Personal collection
    Source: Margie collection
    Source: Pixbay

    Wrong way to source photos:
    Source: https://flic.kr/p/fUGyF
    Source: http://www.flickr.com/photos/texascooking/67678043...
    Source: https://flic.kr/p/7jRRyL

    I hope it works for you smile

    Happy Hubbing smile
    Ashish

      Okay, I did not understand that, I have done it the wrong way from the beginning! Thanks so much! I appreciate all help!

      Margie Lynnposted 3 months ago in reply to this

      Ashish, one more question. Do I use the one that says Name of Source to put the name Flicker. Do I leave the source url and caption blank in the photo box? Thanks so much!

        Ashish Dadgaaposted 3 months ago in reply to this

        Margie,
        Yesh under Source: put name Flicker.
        Leave URL block: blank
        under caption:  (you write description of photo)

        My Pleasure.

              The images I am using on Flickr need Attribution, I did mine like this is it wrong? Sorry, I am such a pest, but want to get this right! You have been so helpful.

              This is what I found in learning center??

              What Correct Image Attribution Looks Like

              We've made it pretty easy to correctly attribute images on HubPages by providing a space for you to list the author, license, and source of each image, as well as to put the source URL (in addition to, of course, your caption, should you choose to add one).

              Here is how you should enter the information:

              In the first text box for each image, put: IMAGE AUTHOR NAME, LICENSE, via SOURCE SITE (e.g. Betty Sue, CC-BY, via flickr)
              In the second box, put the URL of the page where the image came from
              In the final box, put any caption you might want to add

                Hello Margie,

                Don't worry Margie. We will sort out this.

                Yeah, whatever you found in learning center that is 100% true. However, you add more links (URL) to your photos then HubPages autodetection software takes it as a promotion of any product.

                Few 3 - 4 URL are Okay but when you add more than that they consider it as a promotion of the website or a product.

                Drop me an email for further assistance: greenberett88@gmail.com
