I made a new hub about free downloads. I am getting a warning which states, "Warning: This hub appears to be about free downloads". Have I done anything wrong? This hub does not have any affiliate links. What should I do? Would it affect my hubscore or author score? I would appreciate a genuine reply.
Simone has an entry about Hub warnings in this post:
There's a ton of the auto warnings. I got one about "weapon sales" (it's a discussion on different types of weapons, but did not point to anything for sale) and one about "multi-level marketing" (it's about how a scam is masquerading as MLM).
