This article has been cursed with a little skull -- supposedly it has to many affiliate links.
http://nicomp.hubpages.com/hub/BubbleWs … On-The-Web
I don't get it. There are no links. I even took out the sources for the screen shots because they pointed to Facebook and BubbleWs.
I'm not sure, but could it be the programming book you linked to? I'm not sure how it ties into the hub's theme and if you are going to include product links now they have to be very specifically related to the main content of your hub. Since your hub is about how silly Bubblews is - a programming book doesn't immediately seem relevant, unless perhaps you add a section about why you would recommend that book or specific practice to those developing sites like Bubble or something to that effect.
I didn't see any links other than that as I scanned, so I might shoot an email to staff and ask them for a more detailed reason.
I think, Christin is right about the Amazon capsule for the book. It doesn't fit the topic of the hub. I would remove it because its not likely that I would ever get a sale on a hub about Bubblews.
i had a few times got the red skull and even posted a question about it. You know what, the HP team removed my question and warned me! Anyway, I had removed all the links and ads from my skulled hub , changed 2 paragraphs of text and submit again. No more skulls
The skull icon does not mean you have too many affiliate links. It means you are linked to a malicious site, someplace identified as trying to attack visitors with malware or the like.
It might take awhile for the skull to disappear after being edited? Could be a glitch?
You can manually rerun the malicious link check.
Details about those problems is found under Violations on your dash.
OK I took off the Amazon capsule for the programming book -- computers can't interpret subtlety.
I see this problem so many times in my forum blog thing where I inexpensively give misleading advice to idiots.
"How can we make money?" they say and I do my best to take a little off them.
"Buy my book" I tell them but of course no one wants a book these days.
That's why I have been running some weekend courses for females only at a motel where I have negotiated reasonable rates. There is a thirty minute seminar in the afternoon and then tea and biscuits where we exchange stories about affiliate marketing.
Some of the luckier ladies receive one to one SEO strategy tips in private twenty minute sessions. Towels provided.
What relache said is right. i kept thinking in the back of my mind that those skulls are about malicious links. I've had those, just have to get rid of the links. Maybe it came up skulls because Bubblews was down thursday to Monday.
The skull is gone now. Other HubRules are violated but if I get a skull for providing a source URL for a screen shot, then I'll take out the source URL and forgo the skull.

Is a link to my own blog considered an affiliate link? I want to link from a Hubpages article I am writing to an article on my blog that further describes what I am writing about in the article.
