Several days ago one of my hubs was unpublished, apparently for affiliate link offences. I'm pretty puzzled by this, as the only affiliate links I ever knowingly use that might benefit me, are Amazon and e-bay, and these are both very safely within the required text to ad ratios. I have now deleted all text links other than amazon and e-bay, in case I've accidentally linked to something that might offend, but the hub remains unpublished. I'm genuinely bemused by all this. When the rules are clearly defined, I can work within them, but when keeping to the rules becomes a guessing game, it starts to get irritating.
Yep, it is true that in some cases rules are not followed. Do not get upset so much about your hub that still left unpublished. You should contact with Hub-pages authority about the fault & I think that this mishap have not occurred intentionally.
Did you not receive the email we sent you 11 days ago? If you didn't, let me know and I can resend it to you. It had specific instructions on what Hubs needed what work before we started moderating them on May 16th.
At any rate, at the top of the Hub there is a warning message that, when clicked, tells you specifically what you need to do. I've taken a look and your Hub should be just fine now.
Based on a couple of Hubs of mine that were moderated recently (for different violations) that I resubmitted, I would guess your wait time is about 5-7 days before it's republished. They are working as fast as they can but the queue is long.
I would see if you can find that email before any other affected Hubs are moderated. If you can't find it, please contact me through the link on my profile.
You will get sucked into the vortex of the Hubpages' forum dynamic and you will become deranged.
Nothing will save you. Meditation will not save you. Cool jazz will not be a salve to your broken mind. Buddhist chants will not bring you back from the darkness.
You will end your days as a beachcomber.
Hey Will, you know when people ask for help in the Hubpages Knowledge Exchange forums, they are in no way, shape or form, requesting stupid-a$$ statements from uninformed hubbers, who cannot seem to post on topic.
It would be nice if you are actually helpful to others. Half of the post I seen you post are in direct opposition of people who are trying to help others.
What you FAIL to realize is that the information requested and the information received, were the most consistent ways to produce results online. However, you don't seem to give a damn, one way or another.
As for the OP, "How do you get an unpublished hub republished", which you failed to even bother to address, is done quite simply. If the person has/had a hub published, and it was unpublished by staff/moderators, then to republish the hub, requires two things (a)make adjustments and address issues and (b) submit for publication.
Not a difficult thing to explain. See?
Thanks for responding Jason. I've just had a look through my emails, but can find no trace of the one you mention. I'm guessing that half my hubs will fall foul of some mysterious violation sooner or later, because they've all been constructed in a similar way. I'm wondering if I should just go through them and delete all links now to spare myself some angst?
Just in case you thought there was hope.....
I think everyone is having problems
Thanks LeanMan, It doesn't really help, but at least I know I'm not alone! This particularly hub sees most of it's traffic at this time of year, so it's quite frustrating to not have it up and running.
