I have a Hubpage that hasn't been featured for a while. Since I can't find the solution or the definition for the HQ claim of being Spam... I've rewritten, deleted, undone, redone etc. It's a personal story that means something to me. I have done everything possible, and republished to no avail of getting it featured...
I would appreciate it if someone can take a look and give an opinion...I'm at loss to what else to do.
Have you tried to remove one of the two Chuck DeHaan selling modules?
Also you could use full width for pictures?
Maybe credit and source your signature (top pic)?
I dunno why it is labelled as spam, it's no spam to me
Good luck baroness, love your work anyways.
If the photos are your art work that's where the spam is ! We cannot promote ourselves!
I bet if you remove the links and the Amazon capsules it will be featured.
I think your links although relevant to Christian art are most likely the problem. The links are links to artists selling their paintings. This appear as if you are promoting sales of art. I think if you remove two of the links your hub will be posted. The amazon link is fine, it is relevant, and Hubpages would not offer the option to link to amazon if they felt it spammy. It onl gets spammy when you over use the option or if the amazon link is not relevant. Your hub is wonderful... I can see you put thought as well as work into the hub. Resubmit it after removing the two links.
"Spammy elements" usually just means that you have links in the Hub which are not DIRECTLY relevant to the subject.
In this case, I'd say the offending links are to Amazon products, and to other Hubs.
Your Hub is about Christian artists using the fish symbol, but your links are to other Hubs which are not about Christian artists, or are not about the fish symbol.
Thank You Kindly for your responses and suggestions.
I'm a bit confused about the Amazon, eBay etc ads...I thought these ads are our money maker, if not then what is??? I am used to the Squidoo pay from these, so is it different here?
As far as the ads that I have still on the page, are directly related to the subject matter...as I mention in the title of the ad...these artists are also using the symbol of Fish.
Interesting that you can not use your own images and not be considered advertising. I might have images in all my Hubs related with my art...nothing is mentioned FOR SALE, so now what does that do for my 'art by Delia' Hub?
Being a member of Hubpages indeed has been a challenge trying to figure out so many "don't and do's" that are not specific self explanatory directions...otherwise we would not have to come to the Forum ask other members after ready HQ instructions.
I will remove my ads and hope for the best...if not resolved I will just move the page to another site.
Again I really appreciate your responses to my query ... Delia
The real money makers are when viewers click on our ads on our hub pages. I've made no ebay sales and 2 Amazon sales this spring in over a year. Just keep 1 or 2 ad capsules and all would be fine. Each hub is different.
Delia, I've been hear for a year and have reached $14. Sometimes it's not necessary. You're welcome.

First off, my hubs are transferred from Squidoo, and I am aware of various issues there. I'd already checked and edited hubs after the transition, so this is all post transfer.What I don't understand is why some...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not...

For the first time since writing at HP, I have had an email saying that a Hub cannot be featured because it has "spammy elements." The email goes on to say that it could be that an ad is not related to the...
