I received a message from HubPages saying I had a link on one of my hubs that led to a site that was noit allowed. They said I have two days to fix the problem. I am not complaining about the notification or that I had to remove the link.
My problem was having to search through the hub to find the link. My suggestion is to have the links highlighted similar to the bad or broken links highlight along with a notification on our homepage about the link.
It doesn't work like "broken" links, where it highlights yellow?
Edit: I've not heard of links not allowed, which is why I asked.
It was on an old hub of mine. Most likely it is not allowed under the new TOS. Part of the email notification I got was:
As I wrote earlier, it is not a complaint about having to remove the link but only because I had to search it out.
It doesn't work like broken links links that we see on our account page and homepage.
I don't mean on the accounts page. I mean in the hub itself. Broken links show up highlighted yellow.
Sorry, SirDent, didn't think to point out where it was. If you still need help I can locate it for you.
Er... could we clarify this? What kinds of links are disallowed? Only asking because I haven't heard of such a thing, and I don't want to get into trouble

With the growing number of Hubbers that have published or self-published a book, an e-book, or other literary works, why not give them a self-promotion forum. Allow them to post relevant links there, for the benefit of...
