    Hi everyone,

    My name is Hooman, and I just registered here. 

    I'm a college student, part-time web developer, and entrepreneur.  I reluctantly got on Facebook last summer when my little sister signed me up for it.  Then I figured out ways to make money with my profile, groups, and Social Ads. 

    So my first hub page is a step-by-step guide for making money with Social Ads:
    <snipped link--please do not start threads for the sole purpose of self-promotion>

    I'll eventually write about other topics as well, but let me know what you think, and if I can improve it any way.

    Thanks for your time, and glad to have found this neat community!

    Cheers smile

    First of all, welcome Hooman.

    Second... folks around here don't take too kindly to people saying "hey, check out my hub" unless it's got the answer for someone elses question.

    Third... your hub will probably trip the filter for having too many links to the same site. You're allowed 2, and you've got 11.

    Lastly... again, welcome to HubPages. You'll soon figure out how to use the site and the forum.

        Okay, whatever, I apologize.  Not my site, and I should be grateful for using it.  I'll just abide by the policies.

    Anyone know how the term "spam" came to mean something unwanted?  Spam is a wonderful selection of healthy meat(s)...now it means unwanted solicitation...?

    Maybe it was deductive reasoning, but I'm curious if there's a good story behind that.

      If your found of meat by products in a can, go for it.

    Also, please note the pint of beer and ashtray to hand. Genuine luxury smile

    The only time I ever ate spam fritters was at school. And they were always, just a little undercooked, sitting in a tray of grease. They would have passed the Homer Simpson, "Good for weight gain," test no problem......

      I never even encountered a spam fritter while living in England.  But I do know the wonderful contribution newsprint makes to the flavor of fish & chips.

        Spam fritters are almost exclusively school dinner fare.

        Cheap and very,very bad for you. I don't even want to know what is in spam. It's a question that should not be asked and I have avoided ever looking for the facts.

        A bit like the "Cheese flavored food product," in Kraft macaroni and cheese smile

    No additional comment about your hub - except to welcome you. All the comments are very interesting -from fried spam to the history of spam. Where do all these creative people come from?

    Yes--personally, I've always thought that if cheese got to the point of being "dry and powdered" it couldn't possibly be cheese any more and needed to be tossed.

    Hooman1,

    You made a post and left it unattended for 12 hours. Most of us got kind of bored and started a little dialogue among ourselves. There's no need to be upset, my friend. We were just having a little fun with ourselves. Chill, man.

  18. hooman1 profile image60
    hooman1posted 9 years ago

    ^ Okay.  I took out my "excessive links" or at least I hope so.  I still am a bit upset because there is tons of spam on the site, that apparently goes unnoticed. 

    Do you want me to link to some of these scammy hubpages that go unnoticed? 

    I'm practically giving away part of my book, and I don't see it as spamming to include links to my site when I've marked my hub as commercial.

      Maddie Ruudposted 9 years ago in reply to this

      Hi hooman1:

      There should be only 2 links to each domain per hub.  You still have 3 to your own site/sales page.  For clarification on the rules regarding promotion, see What is Overly Promotional Content?

      Regarding moderation, it's really nothing personal.  Please flag any non-compliant hubs you notice that may not have yet been brought to our attention.  Obviously, there are way too many hubs published each day for me to review them all manually, which is why we ask the community to take part in alerting us to those that may not meet our guidelines.

  19. terenceyap07 profile image60
    terenceyap07posted 9 years ago

    Please check the FAQ and guidelines, my friend.

    hooman1posted 9 years ago

    ^ Okay, well the purpose of the thread was initially to get a critique, and while I wasn't happy with the critique, you all did exactly that.  Thanks for the input and understanding.  I will make a new hub that follows the rules this time.

      I really was getting hungry for some spam fritters. smile haha

      Welcome hooman1. I'm still fairly new too! You have to excuse some of the snide comments from some people. Even if you don't excuse them, you'll just need to get used to them... they just won't stop it... haha... They just don't have a bit of southern hospitality.

      Would you care for some of the spam fritters that I'm going to go and cook for dinner? (It's Mark's fault!)

      Again, welcome. I hope you enjoy your stay. If you need anything, let Maddie know. smile She's the HubPages' moderator, in case you haven't figured that one out. I'm ProCW... a fellow content producer... and not quite seasoned when it comes to internet-based writing. I have been writing plays for children for some time and enjoy it. Now, I'm starting to mesh the two. smile

      Artistically,

      PS. Happy Hubbing big_smile

    I'm looking forward to reading your hub, my friend. Come to the forum pages more often and you'll discover that most of us like to kid around a lot. Cheers!
