    Several of my hubs link back to each other, and other hubs since I am doing an online series. It only makes sense to have links linking to the next chapter. But recently these links have been flagged as malware and violations. I just checked every link within these hugpages and they all function perfectly with no redirection or malware involved. In fact most of the links link back to other hugpages. Example: Chapter 1 of Escaping the End links to previous chapters and post chapters within the index; links to my facebook page, my twitter account, and my outlook.com email address. Here are the links to each hub affected:

    I'm new to HubPages, so I may not be the best person to respond -- but I might have an answer for you. I looked at your Chapter-One hub and checked the links. At the bottom, you have link where the text is "Last Hero - Check it out Here!". When I hover my mouse over that link, it shows the link as "bit.ly/lastheroHP". I would try changing that link from the abbreviated version you're currently using to the full URL (http://keyenhancer.hubpages.com/hub/Last-Hero-Preview) and see if that fixes the problem. Hope that helps you!

      I got rid of all bit.ly and other shortened links. This helped to remove the warning. Also noted is that posts linking to posts with shortened links also caused some problems. Thanks for the suggestion!

        I'm so glad that worked for you! It's so frustrating when you get an error and don't know how to fix it.
