I tried submitting one of my hubs to some social bookmarking sites and I got this back:
"URL is invalid or blocked"
Does anyone know why?
It means that particular bookmarking site has blocked hp - probably because of the spammers Most bookmarking sites dont allow you to submit your own hubs - one that does is bloggingzoom but they ban hubpages - only allows blogs. you cant win somedays!
What Lissie said. And in addition to that, sometimes a tracker in the URL can cause it to not work.
