An error about me violating account or ip address

    When i was submitting another new article, HubPage gave me an error stating

    "Sorry, because of rule violations associated with your account or ip address, permission to publish new hubs has been revoked. You can still edit your existing hubs and save your changes to this hub by clicking the done editing button. Your right to publish may automatically be restored through time and adherence to the HubPages rules. Fixing or deleting existing flagged hubs may also help."

    But i don't think i did anything wrong. Why has this happened?
    Is there a limit to how many articles i can submit in a day...
    Please somebody guide me

    Thank you

    In some countries IP addresses are causing problems. You should email Team@Hubpages.com and ask them.

    However, I should warn you, it is presently Sunday in the U.S. and no one will be around to answer your email until Monday or when they get to it. So, be patient. smile

      Cagsil, do you think there might be something wrong with her profile?  To have a hubber score of 19 with a 105 hubs published in 7 weeks definitely raises a red flag.

      Pantira - I checked out some of your hubs and I'm wondering if it's because at the bottom of all your hubs, you are urging readers to click links to get "free" coupons to various things.  While they do all seem to be topic appropriate(from those that I looked at), I'm wondering if you are crossing the line by suggesting that if people want free coupons, they have to click those links.  Maybe the word "free" is an issue?

      Again...this is only my guess...could be something else.

      Anyone else have an idea?

    I have to add that I followed one of your links just to now to get "free" maternity clothes coupons and it is very deceiving.  The page that the link takes the reader to is an article about getting coupons for maternity clothes but I certainly did not see any coupons available for printing.  Are all of your sites like this?  If so, this is very deceiving to the reader, this will likely be frowned upon.

    Oh, here's another one I just found...your free Toshiba coupon code links take you to a webpage about Toshiba coupons and the "get coupon" links takes you to a coupon for "$20 for $40 in Tapas and Drinks for Two at Palo Cortado"

    Any explanation?

    Your free Subway coupons link is bogus too.  Looks like they all are.

      The ones I checked offered no coupons either, just more links to maybe find them, maybe not.  I didn't bother to follow any further.

      It would appear from this that our moderators are doing their job.

    All the links are fine and take you to the right place.

    theherbivorehippi the tosibha links are also find, they take you the right place rather than "$20 for $40 in Tapas and Drinks for Two at Palo Cortado", like you stated

      They DO NOT offer free coupons when you follow the link! This is deceiving to the reader. If you are saying that all the links take you to the right place then you are intentionally leading the reader to believe they are getting something that they are not!  NO..the Toshiba link takes you to some other article and on the right side of the page is a green bar with a big orange bar that says to follow to get your free coupon and when you do it takes you to that BS food coupon.

      None of your links provide what you are offering.

      From what I saw and herbivore indicates "the right place" is another adsense loaded site with more links to somewhere else to get coupons.  That doesn't fit the needs of a searcher much.

      We may be wrong, however.  Do any of the links take you directly to somewhere where coupons are printable without further link-following?

        I've tried dozens of them and none took me to an actual coupon.  Like you said...they go to a page full of Adsense ads and there are further links to follow to get a coupon....

          okay so thats most likely the problem, that the links are taking the reader to other places rather than the actual coupon.
          If i change that, will i be able to republish?

    That's really only something the Hubpage team can answer.  All of your hubs have really great coupon-related Adsense ads coming up on them, why not leave the links off altogether?

      okay thank you, ill wait for hubpage team to reply, and if it is the issue with the links, ill remove them

    If you read thought the article, at the end you can see this sentence

    ==========
    You can find coupons from these websites, such as, retailmenot.com, tjoos.com, couponcabin.com, dealtaker.com, mycoupons.com, and dealsbell.com.

    ==========

    It will let you go to coupon websites.

      That may be the problem all links pointing to eternal site...considered overly promotional ..and you are only allowed two links from each hub to an eternal site.. and if all hubs have the same sites mentioned you are sure to be in trouble..I guess you should read http://hubpages.com/faq/#overly_promotional   that may help you sort things out.

    It is said that only two external links are allowed per hub.
