My hub is not published anymore. It contains the message "links to prohibited site."
There are no hyperlinks in my article? What can I do to get this article posted again?
If there are absolutely no hyperlinks in your article, then it's a mistake. Moderators do make mistakes sometimes! Email team@HubPages.
However, I'm wondering if you have links in your photo capsules that you've forgotten about, or a RSS feed? If you go to the Hub and click on the warning, it should tell you what the offending link is.
As MW said, photo capsules with URL linking back to the site is still a link.
I just got hit by one the other day, and like you, there are no links except to other hubs. Then I realized the ONE pix I linked to had an URL leading back to a site. Voila.
MW, apparently the warning doesn't display the URL if the URL is in the photo capsule. It will display the URL if it's in a text capsule though.
What was the site you linked to? Linking to sites containing porn, hate speech, gun sales, drug sales or the promotion of gambling would land you in a spot. Otherwise, you may get a quicker answer messaging the mods directly.
Thanks for the feedback.
It is however none of the above. I do not put links on my photos. I also don't have an RSS feed as yet.
I have managed to publish the hub, but it still shows as "need revision".

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?

"Paranoia" must think some of you, and honestly, I used to think the same. I didn't even believe that this was possible, even though Google mentioned that they have ways to detect link spamming. But the...
