I am being told that I have a violation, "to many promotional links" But on reading the information given I understand that I am allowed 2 links to the same domain, which is all I have. All other links are to other peoples hubs. How can I get someone to look at this and fix it.
My hub is http://christine-s.hubpages.com/hub/Fan … -Costumes, but apparently it isn't published and only I can see it.
Your feedback will be appreciated.
Christine, looking at your other hubs.,... have you been linking to the same site in all your hubs?? If that is true, it is overly promotional..
Question master is right, you have to check the overly promotional guidelines and edit your hub.. maybe a quick edit on your other hubs will save you a lot of heart ache.
Overly promotional means ANY outgoing links, in link module or embedded.
However, HP staff has been known once in a while to mistake an RSS capsule for a link capsule. RSS apparently counts as 1.5, but if it's counted as a link capsule it counts as 3-5 or whatever the number you set it as. (It happened to me once) To fix that you'll have to write to the HP team and ask them how did they count it, and if they did make this mistake, let them know.
Make sure you've carefully read the overly promotional guidelines here - http://hubpages.com/faq/#overly_promotional
There are other reasons than two outgoing links to one domain.
If you still think you're in the clear, you can email email@example.com
If all your hubs have 2 links to the same place, eventually that will get flagged as too promotional.

Today I hopped a few hubs and as usual I flagged a lot of them for being overly promotional, for having two links to the same site. The breach of the rules was obvious. For example, in a hub on the subject of weight...
