Above is the link to my hub I have edited, over and over again.
It has just been un-published due to it containing spamming elements.
Could someone please offer me some help identify the issues with my hub.
I have spent well over a month working and polishing this and any assistance you can provide me would be great.
I am so stressed and now have hit a wall.
Thank you in advanced to the fantastic, helpful, people who help me.
We can't read it if it is not published. So your problem may have been fixed.
You can't have more than two links to any one outside site. I didn't see that you broke the rule, but you may want to check. I saw two to Dropbox, and 2 to your website. I also saw one to your Facebook page. I wonder if someone thought the one to Facebook was also going to your website.
Thank you. I removed a link to my web site and then published it again. However, I don't know if that was the 'spamming elements' they referred to.
It is frustrating trying to fix something when I really don't know what part of the Hub they are referring to. I am concerned with doing more editing, just to find out I was looking in the wrong place to start with.
I noticed that there are lots of links on your hub. We are only allowed to have two links in our hub.
Putting more than two links or hyperlinks inside your hub makes it over promotional. Refused from repeating words like ipad - it makes your hub spammy.
Actually, as MT stated above, the rule is no more than two links to any one domain. So, he can have that many links, as long as no more than two go to the same site.
Of course where he linked to matters as well, which may be where his trouble exists.
Thank you, I have read the help articles over and over again until my brain started to melt.
Should I break the tutorial up in to Hubs?
1st Hub on Setting up dropbox for use with the tutorial.
2nd Hub on Making the comic and so on.
I just wanted to have a tutorial that was self contained without having to leave the main hub.
In reality it's 2 links PER SAME domain, not two links in general...
I know the rule has been presented as "no more that two per same domain," but I remain concerned. If you have a low score, or can't get featured, you may need to reduce hyperlinks and any that go to pages too unrelated.
I suggest replacing some hyperlinks with quoted material and follow that with proper citation/attribution.
This is simply not correct. You can have as many links as you like, it is not penalized.
Since HubPages penalizes for duplicate content, how would adding quoted material to a Hub already identified as spammy be helpful? Quoted material is duplication.
Bold/Italic text. I am pruning hub too. It hasn't made the Featured category after a few tries. I had previously put some words in bold for the reader and was also referencing the custom of hashtaging by also using hashtagged words. One of the problems that may have knocked my scored down, as with you, is the overuse of bold or italicizing. You may want to reduce that.
You might also consider reducing how many times you use the same keyword or product name. I know that is usually meant for SEO scores, but you may have reached the tipping point and received a "stuffing" penalty.
Is your facebook page related to the subject of the hub??? If not-it's spam or may be called 'self-promotion", which is not allowed.
If you think your Hub is okay you can always email HP and ask them. I suspect your links are your problem, particularly the one telling people to go to your website and download something.
Wow. That is one of the best hubs I have seen - no bull. Fantastic!
Thank you all for your advice, it has been great.
My hub is still published at the moment. I'm not to sure how often they get checked or if it is just a bot that randomly scans the hubs looking for violation.
It may have been one of the links to my site, one that I have removed.
Thank you fellow Hubbers for your advice.
