I havent done anything wrong, not posted my hub links anywhere yet and they show following error.
Can anyone please help me on figuring out
This is the link to the hub in question, Thanks
It also says "This hub needs to be revised before it can be published."
* not meet with the terms of Google AdSense Program Policy
* have been promoted through spam - including blog spam, comment spam, forum spam, email spam, or other types of link spam
* "phish," or request private user information for fraudulent purposes
* hijack users, or pass them onto a different site than they intended to visit
* infringe on trademarks
Please let me know what changes I need to make to fix this.
This hub was doing fine till today and it was published a few months back so I dont understand how all of a sudden I get this warning
As Website Examiner said, promotional weapons content is a violation of AdSense policy. For more information, please see:

I couldn't read the hub as the link lead to a hub that is no longer published.
It looks like the word use is in voilation. Unpublish it, and edit it rewording the words in questions. I'm assuming it's the ones in regard to firearms, sensitive subject content there. After you publish it the warning will go away if you've met the guidlines. Good luck tweeking is something we must all do from time to time unless your ME and I do it all the time.
It just happen recently as it takes a while for a indepth check of content, the bots didn't catch then what someone is catching now. This to shall pass.
Hey Katie thanks for your quick reply,
What If I reword it and they still dont like it
I just removed some tags that had words such as "weapons" and "firearms" in it. Now its submitted, it now says "This hub has been submitted for publication, and will be published once it has been reviewed by the administrator."
Its an informational hub nothing bad really
That's the process, I don't think it'll be hard to get it published again. I've changed just a few words in the past and had no worries. Just use your gut and pick the word content you had a feeling might have been pushing the envelope a wee bit and you should be good. OBTW Your welcome.
Your entire site, including the URL of the hub in question, glorifies weapons and munitions. It is against Adsense TOS to sell, facilitate or advocate the sales of weapons and weapon accessories. So if you get under close scrutiny, you may be in for a rough ride, I'm afraid.
I just deleted a Hub I wrote two years ago about the history of the Derringer pistol. I also received a notice that it was in violation. It seems to me the history of weapons shouldn't be an issue but I didn't want to chance it so deleted the whole Hub. It's been a good Hub for me so I hated to do it. I tried first removing the links but that didn't work either. Apparently writing about weapons at all is taboo.
You can write about the history of a weapon, but advocating its use is strictly prohibited. If I remember your hub correctly, it was primarily the links and a few sentences that were the problem.
In the future, please contact us and we will give you clarification on what you need to change. It is pretty rare that a hub is so far gone that it cannot be republished.
Is wwriting Amazon hubs about selling gun safes and stuff going to be at risk too?
Izzy, if you take the time to click through the link tha Nora provided, and read Google's statement, you'll realize that writing about gun safes may not be allowed.
The key is their use of the word "advocate.". It means "to speak or write in favor of; support or urge." Any sort of recommendation winds up as something that could be interpreted as advocating.
Actually, the quote that Nora linked to shows that there are a significant number of Hubs still to get shut down. Stun guns are verboten, and ads are still running on those here... And a ton of the airsoft gun Hubs do not contain the statement required by US law that Google mentions.
Well its hypothetical because I don't have a hub about gun safes, but gun safes are there to prevent the use of firearms so no promotion towards gun use is being made.
Seems strange when Google are based in the US where gun carrying is legal and gun safes are mostly compulsory if you own a gun.
Thanks, Norah - I will rewrite it and contact you for advice. It needed a rewrite anyway.
