So I get this message:
"This Hub has been identified as promoting unrelated site(s) or product(s). In order to have it republished, you will need to remove all links and product capsules that do not directly relate to the content."
And I can't understand why...
Am I allowed to post my link here? For the sake of you guys helping me out what might be it?
And also, when I think it's ridiculous I got flagged for this reason can I just press edit and publish again?
Does that work when the reviewer has been unfairly negative for instance? And am I suffering from this flagging in the short term?
Thanks for helping me out.
Since it is unpublished, you wouldn't be able to post the link here. The best way to resolve the issue is respond to Hubpages directly. Explain why you feel that they were mistaken and ask for clarification if needed. Anytime in the past that I have had to contact Hubpages they have always been reasonable and quick to help me resolve issues.
So can anyone just flag my hubs and then they become unpublished?
That is really annoying...
Can I complain about the person that flagged me somewhere? This one seems really overzeaulous.
A hub generally wouldn't be unpublished just because one person flagged it. Flagging a hub is marking it for a moderator can review it. But it would be good for you to contact Hubpages directly with your concerns and you can ask them for clarification.
No one can flag your Hub and get it unpublished.
You're confusing flagging and moderating,
If a Hubber flags a Hub, all that happens is that it goes into a queue to be looked at by the moderators. You won't even know it's happened, because the Hub is still published.
When the moderator (who is a HubPages staffer) gets to your Hub, they will look at it and decide whether the flag is justified or not. If it's not, they will simply dismiss it and that's it. However if the moderator decides the Hub breaks HubPages' rules somehow, it will be unpublished.
I don't think your Amazon Hubs are a problem because you're staying within the limits. However I suspect you'll get in trouble with your "sexy, erotic" Hubs, because adult content isn't allowed. Your Hubs don't really count as adult content, but they do use words associated with it, and that will be enough to trigger the filters.
Adult content isn't allowed because Adsense doesn't allow it, and if HubPages breaks their rules, the whole site could lose the right to display Adsense ads (don't think that can't happen, it happened to one of their competitors a few months ago). Adsense checks for adult content by looking for "naughty words", because they're not clever enough to read context. So that's how HP does it too.
It doesn't matter who flags a hub, in fact it may be that no one did and your hub got picked up in a random check. It only gets unpublished for this reason after a manual check.
IMHO several of your hubs just push a series of products with Amazon links for each one. Under the current standards I think many of them might have this same problem.

How is it that one person has the ability to go through all your hubs and with a few clicks, take them all down?For instance: http://hubpages.com/hub/Marrying-a-Philippines-Girl(I realize it is down at the moment, but go to google and type site:http://hubpages.com/hub/Marrying-a-Philippines-Girl...

If we flag a hub, does it say which hubber put in the flag, or is it anonymous. I mean, could someone turn around and flag your hub to retaliate? How does it work exactly? Thanks.

This forum is a place for you to post hubs that you think are clearly of low quality and need flagging. Committed hubbers should follow this forum and check these hubs posted for quality when they have the time. If a hub has been clearly copied (for example from a PDF file that the plagiarism...

The question of whether poetry Hubs should have 400-word minimums came up in this thread a few minutes ago:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/70203#post1528809I've been puzzling about what to do with poetry Hubs I've found while hopping. I haven't flagged any of them, because poetry is a unique...

In light of the Google algo change, it is now obvious and confirmed that hub-hopping is VERY important. I feel that if you publish here, you should hub hop when you can. As it should hopefully increase our revenue and hopefully take this hubpages back to the top, where it belongs.The problem is...
