Can anyone help me understand why this is being marked as spammy?
http://hubpages.com/technology/Bootstra … ith-Pop-Up
The only thing I see is that the word "Bootstrap" is used repeatedly in the beginning of the article. You could consider replacing it, where appropriate with something like "this product" or "the manufacturer", or some other non-Bootstrap word. That's all I have.
When you click on "edit" of the article is there not a box at the top of the article on the right hand side explaining what you might want to change?
I published an article just two days ago, that came back as unfeatured. I clicked edit on the article and a box appeared explaining the issue to me, the issue was I had an Amazon capsule less than 300 words apart from another Amazon capsule which was consider as spammy.
Hope you find the solution.
All it says its that it might be spammy and will remain unpublished unless is edited
Where you have input each script there is a green question mark in the top right corner.
When clicking on that question mark it opens a small window that asks people to donate.
Given there is 9 separate fields with code in, that link in the question mark appears 9 times. That could be the problem and may be being considered as the article is spamming that link as it is displaying it pretty often throughout the post.
Isn't that hubpages' plug in? How do I take it out?
The post has disappeared mate.
What capsule did you use to put the scripts on the page?
Yes I know, I saw another hubber talking about bootstrap also and has the same green button with the donate link
May be it is not that then that is causing the spammy issue. Tis strange.
I contact hubpages via email in hopes that I get a response
Did you find a solution?
I just remembered in the first or second TEXT capsule did you have a hyperlink in one of the words?
Did you try taking that link out? You can then add a LINK capsule. It might work mate.
Why would it make any difference to take out a contextual link and use a link capsule instead?
If a link is a problem, it's a problem wherever it is.
Not sure. I had one rejected for having a link in the first paragraph, I took the link out and added it to a link capsule and re-submitted and it then become featured.
Might have been the same issue with this man's post.
I just presumed that the spacing of the placing of contextual links might have been deemed as spammy.
You have to remember that the QAP is done by human beings, so you may just have had an overly-picky moderator the first time around - or a slack one the second time around!
Besides, moderators are more likely to notice a link in the first paragraph than one at the end - they have a limited time span to check a Hub and I suspect many of them make a judgment before they reach the end.

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...

I don't know what is going on with my articles lately, but every time they edit them, my amazon capsules are removed. Once they remove the amazon products, they publish it and feature it. I don't understand why this is...

I have noticed that the editors have removed Amazon capsules from some of my hubs that are moved to niche sites. I was wondering what caused it to be removed. If I decide to add some relevant capsules to my hubs, what...

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...
