New Spammy Elements FAQ
Check Your Hubs for These Issues
Based on recent information about what Google considers "spammy" we've created a new FAQ entryto help Hubbers identify spammy elements in Hubs and rectify them. Here's the gist:
Links are considered spam that are misleading, keyword stuffed, unrelated to the Hub, identical to what's in the Hub, or link to window confirmation boxes that interfere with site navigation or redirect users to unwanted websites.
Products are considered spam that are unrelated to the Hub, excessive, meant to benefit the Hubber and not the reader, and unnecessary to the reader's experience (i.e. the Hub would work fine without them).
Text (yes, even plain text can be spam) is considered spammy when it is keyword stuffed, contains plaintext urls to a business, excessively promotes a business or product.
