I got the same thing on one of mine today. It was just lucky that I happened to be going to that hub to add some tags to it anyway. I didn't see anything indicating it needed revision on my stats page, but possibly I missed it. Shouldn't it be highlighted in pink?
Anyway, I'm glad they gave me warning before unpublishing so I could go in and fix it instead of flipping out over my traffic arriving at a 404 page
I gave them both a thumbs down, I don't know if Maddie & Paul get those or not. I considered flagging them, but not sure what to call them since promotional or spam wasn't one of the options. Guess I could just choose 'other'.
These warnings do not affect your HubScore, or unpublish or flag your Hub. They are merely designed to help point newbies in the right direction, and clear up confusion on our rules. They're automated, so they will catch some stuff that actually isn't overly promotional or substandard, but as I said they don't affect the hub in any way other than when you yourself view it, so go ahead and ignore it.
I too rec'd my first warning - on my Places To Sell Your Writing hub. I've had it there for quite awhile without any probs, so I guess it's the new system. What I can't figure out is why just that one....my other lists haven't been flagged.
This is really shocking - all my Hubber role models such as Mark and Misha are turning to the Dark Side.
Next you'll be published Hubs on curing the common cold with shameless promotion of an e-book and links to Squidoo where you can be even more shamelessly promotional. Then you'll threaten to leave us because you've purchased several 100 'good links' and haven't made a cent in the first 24 hours.
How the mighty are fallen!
(Can I slip a link in here for my ebook on how to earn $1000 a week on Hubpages without any hand-written content?)
I think it ought to be required reading for anyone before they start LOL
It frustrates me no end when I see Internet Marketers trying to game the system or a site as I have seen of late. As someone who is passionate about the power of the internet to give real value through Internet Based Marketing I despair of some of what I see.
Lissie I was nodding and agreeing all the way through your hub so thank you for the great read!
All you people are going to give me Grey hairs.Now i will worry about loosing all my hubs and what about my comments? Still I will go to sleep tonight sometime thinking I am joining the superior ranks.
