    Hello, this is cTory/cRaven. I want to know why my hub has violate the terms of use?

    - I DON'T have one single freakin affiliate code on my hub.

    - Links to eBook sales pages and lead capture forms? I don't understand this one...

    - I DON'T have links that contain pop-ups or pop-unders that interfere with site navigation on my hub.

    - Links that initiate downloads or change user preferences? I don't understand this one...

    I don't want to republish my hub to get a chance of being banned. Because I don't know whats the problem is. Why do they have to list down "what may be it." If you don't tell me the real reason, how should I know? I don't know.

    If you are an administrator, I bet you can see the un-published hub right here: http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-sale-a-product

    I don't have any popups, affiliate codes or nothing. By the way, what is up with "this may be a prohibited site?" I don't have child pornography, terroist videos or any crap like that.

      That may be a problem with the language as the title of your hub suggests.. though your post doesn't seem to suggest so..

      You may do well to send a mail to team@hubpages .com if you feel that the pointers mentioned in the mail to you is not clear or if you feel that you have not violated the Hubpages  code..

      I highly recommend you check out the Learning Center The HubPages Help section has all of the violations and explanations.  You have also received emails letting you know your violations.  Your Hubs have been correctly taken down by a moderator and will not be republished unless you make revisions.  Please carefully read the emails that were sent and augment your Hubs to comply with our Terms of Service.  If you have any questions, email team@hubpages.com.  Good luck!  big_smile

    I am not an administrator and if you would like to contact one, then I would suggest emailing Team@Hubpages.com staff.

    However, before you do that, I suggest you read the FAQ's page and visit the Learning Center.

    If you have used the same text that you used to promote your service in a Squidoo lens and on Facebook, then the hub may well have been unpublished because it is duplicate content:

    The text starts:

    "Want to learn how to sale a product? Sure, we can help you. You can stay tune in [link] for weekly updates to find out which product you want to.... "

    Cagsil is correct, if you write to the HubTeam, they will reply personally and point you in the right direction, as it stands your hub has probably been pulled by the computer, when you write to them, it will be looked at by a moderator, they seem quite human and helped me get the three hubs I had pulled back up, and I was grateful for the fact that on one of them, judged substandard, (mainly because it was a memorial to someone, and you can't get too wordy in those!) I was forced to review, and produced what I believe was a far better hub as a result.

    Give them the chance to answer you, I understand it's annoying to have a hub pulled, especially if (as was with two of mine) they have been showing and being read for months, but it's not them we need to be annoyed with, it's Google!

    Everything you publish on Hubpages has to be unique to Hubpages. If you have published it elsewhere it will be classified as a duplicate and unpublished.

    I checked you 4 remaining hubs and they are all duplicated on various pages. I find it curious that some were originally published in 2009 yet you have a copyright 2010/2011 at the bottom of your hubs.

    If you are copying an article from Squidoo or somewhere else. Just take 5 minutes to change some words in the sentences, so it doesn't come up as duplicate, also alter the title.

    Sort of recycling....

    Take Care and Stay Calm.
