I just got a warning on the first page I ever wrote:
http://albertnew.hubpages.com/hub/Five- … Unemployed
The warning lists a number of rules that may be violated but I am assuming that this is the primary one:
contain content regarding programs which compensate users for clicking ads or offers, performing searches, surfing websites, posting in forums, or reading emails
It was never my intention to violate any terms, I just wanted to teach those who are unemployed how to earn some money with their time. Am I not allowed to mention reward programs like Bing or SwagBucks here?
i wasn't allowed to add two external links and it cannot be from the same link either
I had two review hubs with this warning today when I came in. The main thing is "threatening me" with moderation due to new policy changes is the wrong thing to do.
A simple click and they are unpublished and I shall find a new home for them. I am very tired of hubs that are several years old suddenly contain violations after being featured and getting views the whole time they have been published.
2/3rds of hubs deleted and about 1/3 more to go. May still be here by the end of 2015, lol.
I ponder how to do a review of several similar products without having links out to these particular items? Amazing. Not sure what HP wants anymore, and the continual tweaking is not worth the very meager earnings this site provides. I used to do well here, lol, and the hubs that did well have slowly been unfeatured, or not in violation of new policy.
It sounds like our recent word per product limit increase might be the problem. If that is the case, your old Hubs will be safe from moderation until they are edited (at which point you'll need to bring them into compliance. Hope that helps!
I link to three products in each of the two hubs, reviewing three products in each hub. Both hubs are right at 700 words, give or take. Even with the one eBay ad, that still should be covered at 100 words per product.
Anyway, too late, because when I unpublished them, I had to click "edit" so they would become auto moderated should I republish them.
None of these items adequately support that many more words per item in the review.
No worries, I will unpublish the URL on Webmaster Tools and slip 'em over to my blog.
Thanks for the quick response.
Hi Albert. I had to alter 10 poems yesterday. The reason was that we are now allows one advert per 100 words. Have you used more adverts than allowed? If so remove the extras. Hope this helps.
PTC is one of the restricted, meaning forbidden topics.
Dale: your name was not mentioned. I put the link for info in regards to this forum, and the link provided by the OP which is what the forum is about.

Whether I agree with HP's new policies or not, I respect the site's right to set their own rules. However, I think one of the reasons Hubbers are getting upset isthey're getting warnings based on rules they don't...

There has been a discussion thread about this, but I just wanted to alert other Hubbers to it.You will receive a warning email about some rule violations - but for some, your Hub will show a warning on the Hub itself,...

There are some troubled men who regularly use forums, and they have not a single hub in their profiles. How come? How is it allowed? I do not get it--- Is HubPages a chat-website?

Well, that’s nice, very nice. I haven’t got a clue of what I did wrong. And after filling in the online appeal form they told me they had reviewed my account information, taken my feedback into account, but still...
