    I have had a couple of warnings syaing that I am linking to prohibited sites...and as far as I can see this either means the news capsule or clickbank...have where I have noticed the news capsule but what about the clickbank link? unsure not I have made a cracker with clickbank..

      For instance:  I do reviews of shotguns, rifles, pistols, etc - it's against Google Adsense policies to link to sites that actually sell those things.  I can write about Smith and Wesson pistols, that's fine, but I can't link to a site that actually sells those pistols, or any other sort of weapon.  Hope that helped.

    The news capsules is no longer being used.

    As for Clickbank, the affiliate links are no longer allowed.

      I have now spent almost an entire day just removing links and news from my hubs and I would be about half way through I just hope that there are no more surprises for me once I have completed this mammoth task!

        ajcor - You don't need to remove News Capsules manually. They will disappear on their own.

      finished I think - as I have about 143 hubs and they move about on the stats page depending on the scores hard to know if I have captured them all! ...but I guess if there is a problem someone will advise me..or the offending news links will go...thanks everyone for your help..cheers
