I am having real trouble getting my first hub publsied and online. I keep gettign told that it is overly promotional (see below) but as far as I can tell I have resolved all of these issues. I have been over the matertial in the page but still I can't seem to get it to work. I have read the FAQ and tutorials but perhaps I am missing something.
Can anyone give me some pointers or help?
Overly Promotional means that your Hub:
*Solely or excessively promotes another site
*Links more than 2 times to a single domain
*Gives a short teaser and a link to "read more" or "continue"
*Links to a page that contains largely the same content as your Hub
*Contains an RSS feed that directs to the same site as a link within the body of the Hub
*Has excessive Amazon or EBay capsules
If it's not published we can't see it. What is the topic?
I saw a cached version. It is very short and it is basically a commercial for a site and sending people there... it adds nothing to Hubpages.
From the FAQ:
Purely promotional offers and Hubs designed only to promote other sites or businesses are not allowed.
I suggest you follow each reason provided by the "error message" and start to make revisions.
