Why does HubPages unpublish and unfeature hubs which have content which is wholly consistent with the topic of the hub - but they decided some of it "might" be spammy....
.....and then have 18 advert links at the bottom of the Hub which are 100% unrelated to the topic of the hub?
Next time HubPages accuses one of my hubs of being spammy I shall be sending the team lists of the very many links on my hubs which do a very good job of looking like spam
Thing is those "spammy" lists of links are absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with me.
I have a few pages that get that treatment as well. I have one now in fact.
It was fine and gets good traffic. Then, I dared to update it and all of a sudden this happens again. This same page had this treatment several times.
I see so many pages here that are nothing but CLEARLY SPAM that are still active. Yet, I use a wrong word (supposedly) or mention my hometown one too many times when I want to update a page to keep it current and then one of my pages is called spam and is not featured any longer.
Then, there is also the spam ads that have nothing to do with us that you mention. These cannot be helping in the ranking by the search engines. The ranking tanks so HP tightens the filters to catch a wrong word or other slight error on our part to try to make the big G happy again. This, of course, fails as this wasn't the main problem. The main problems are the nothing but spam pages and the spam ads.
I am almost to the point of not wanting to update any of my pages as they were all featured. I update one and then have to figure out whatever the little thing is that got caught up in the filter to get it featured again. It is not worth my time to keep this up.
Especially aggravating are the pages that were made to be nothing but junk spam, but never updated and run through the filter so they are still active.

I thought I read the new rules about word count and Amazon links, etc. and I put in the time to fix every single hub that was on the list that HP emailed me. Apparently some hubs didn't make the list and now I'm getting about 2 emails a day telling me that a hub of mine was unpublished for...

Hi,One of my Hubs has been showing comments from different people that are unrelated to my post. It seems to be entire discussions going on about another subject. Is anyone else seeing this?

I have learned through forum discussions that including an outgoing anchor text link in a text capsule in a hub is good idea when a) the word or phrase used as the anchor text closely relates to what the hub is about, b) the webpage linked to closely relates to what the hub is about, and c) the...

I honestly want to know. Was there a recent change in hubpages.com policies, or did I do something to inadvertently upset someone? All of a sudden I have started getting a flood of e-mails about one hub after the next getting unfeatured. Even TONIGHT (Friday night at 7:30 pm) I am continuing...

I have a hard time reaching above 75 points on my QAP assessment. I have no idea what else to do. I made sure my text is correct, stylized and broken into digestible chunks, bold only on important phrases, headings, sub-headings and other formatting techniques used. Since I had a lot of images, I...
