    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.

      Hello baroness smile

      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 sad

      Good luck baroness, love your work anyways.
      Me wink

      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 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

      Hi delia,

      Most Hubbers find they earn much more from the HubPages Ad Program than from product capsules. You will need a Google AdSense account to participate, but I think you'll find it worthwhile to sign up. smile

        Thank You Christy...Yes, I'm signed up for all of them...I guess I'll just forget the money...although I enjoyed giving my Squid money to charity or causes.

    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.
