    I just saw that all of my 48 hubs have been identified as NEEDS REVISION. Please guide me whether it is real or there is a bug.

      Other profiles are still showing people's hubs so I guess your hubs have been unpublished.
      The site is currently heavily looking at spam; especially related to amazon products not being highly relevant to the content.
      Having not read any of your hubs I can't comment on their quality.

      Most of the time the hubs will have a message on them when you go to edit them giving some guidance as to the issues..

    It says highly promotional.

      Rafig23, I cannot view them, as they are not published right now, but the "highly promotional" message usually has to do with -  too many Amazon capsules clustered together, or Zazzle links, which appear as 3 links to HP, ads to products that are unrelated to your articles, or lots of products with not enough text to justify their existence.

      Check to see if that could be the problem. I had that happen a few times, when I first came here, from Squidoo.

        HP does not use Zazzle.

    Shades, I have deleted Amazon and Ebay capsules and looking for them to get them refeatured.

      Rafiq23 - When they are, some of us may be able to offer some more specific help. I am rather a newbie, so some of those who have been here awhile will be a great deal more helpful.

        I want to let you know that I am going to delete all of my 48 hubs as I am unable to get them re-featured. I want to transfer them to a new website. It seems HubPages is not rewarding original contents. Most of my hubs were at the top of list in google search results.

          Wait until Tuesday when the staff is back in the office. (Monday is a holiday in the US.)  I looked at a few of your Hubs via the Web Archive and I couldn't see anything that was overly promotional.  I suggest that you send an email and ask what is wrong with your Hubs: team (at) hubpages.com.

          (The Hubs I read were very well written, informative and far superior to most of what is published on HubPages.  Certainly a mistake has been made.)

            44 of them anyways.

    It's probably due to the fact that each and every one of your Hub summaries was just a nonsense pack of keywords for that subject, instead of being actual descriptive summaries of what the content is about.

    Here's a screenshot of what your profile page used to look like, when all your Hubs were still published.  If you read the descriptions you have in the summaries, it's obvious why admin moderated your entire account.

    Most of the summaries are just the title copy-pasted over and over.

      That's a good point and he should definitely change those summaries.  But, are the summaries actually part of the QAP?  I've never seen the summaries on Hubs using the Hub Hopper.

        The Hub Hopper is a flawed process.

      Thank you very much Ralche for your suggestions. I followed your method, changed the summaries and got my hub re-featured.

    Yea dear, its real, you just need to do some editing in your hups, (ie) changing words totaly or arround.

    It is for real because I experienced that early this week. Go edit and resummit them and they will be republished. just change few words.

    I believe many hubbers will still receive such message in no distant time for that is a new step introduced by hubpages.

    Above all you may not be over promoting any product.

      I must say, I agree that you look at all of them. It does not always help though. I have just had one of my Hubs with nothing I can see at all. To them I can only think they consider it spammy as I only have one Amazon capsule on it. I went through every single word in it. Changed everything remotely spammy and still no luck so I have deleted it. I realize Hubpages cannot look at every single Hub, but a little help on what is really wrong will help. Have you had any luck since?sad

    Seems like someone has a trigger finger for pulling hubs right now...I wonder if HP realizes that people are going to start learning how to throw up webpages of pure frustration.

      TIMETRAVELER2posted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Novator:  Google is the trigger puller, not HP.  No matter where you post, you will have similar problems unless you improve the quality and content of your work and limit ads, etc.

    out of pure frustration*

  9. Uzochukwu Mike profile image53
    Uzochukwu Mikeposted 2 years ago

    Novator, the point is that the links to our articles have been updated by Google on Hubpages and that is why it is difficult to leave now. Leaving now is like starting life afresh. So we have to dance to their tone.

      Mike:  It appears that you are not a native speaker of English.  I have noticed in several of your forum posts that you misuse and incorrectly spell words.  You say you have had problems featuring your hubs, perhaps the fact that you are using incorrect spelling, structure and grammar is one of the reasons.

      1. Uzochukwu Mike profile image53
        Uzochukwu Mikeposted 2 years ago in reply to this

        TIMETRAVELER2: Thanks for your concern in detecting that I do not know how to speak and write correct English. I want to let you know that he who thinks he knows how to do something best may be making very big mistake. Go to my hubs and forum posts and figure out the places I used incorrect grammar one after the other and report them here. If your able to do this, I will then believe you are right with the point you made.

        Besides, you may expect me to use U.S English in my posts and write-ups but it is not so. I speak and use British English.

        Once again, thanks for your expensive findings my English master. Remain bless...

          Mike, I think you write very well all things considered. Also, Ive lost websites with hundreds of thousands of words...its tough, but it makes you smarter in the end - protecting yourself by scattering eggs in multiple baskets is never a bad idea.

            Novator, thanks a lot. As I said before, am making plans for that. Thanks for your understanding.

              Mike, you know just as well as I do - if not better than I - that life would be very difficult for a person if they did not have understanding for others that are different.

              I respect what you do here, keep at it brother.

    TIMETRAVELER2: For more information, I did not say my hubs failed to be featured. What I said was that my hubs were unpublished (need revision) which is the same issue issue the hubber that created this forum thread is having.

      Thank you very much Relache and Writerfox for your suggestions. I changed the summaries of my hubs and fortunately got them re-featured. I thank all of the hubbers who suggested me various means to get my hubs re-featured.

        Awesome, I'm glad you got things worked out...it would have taken a bit of effort to SEO a new site with those articles...and goog may still have them archived under HP's .com

          Novator! I'm really glad I have recovered from that trauma. Though, I am not receiving that traffic, which I had in the past, yet I'm very very pleased that my hubs have been re-featured.Thanks to all of you who guided me very well.

            You can re-summit the links to those hubs that lost traffic to Google Webmaster tool. It is well.
