I have tried to hop some new hubs recently and noticed most are over saturated with amazon ads and excessive links.
Doesn't hp have an automated message pop up when they submit the new hubs or maybe it should.
I can't find a way to report this.The older system allowed some comments that may be more helpful.
Hubs can appear in the Hopper that have not yet passed the QAP, so it's likely that those Hubs will be automatically removed upon review.
Could you please share info as to what constitutes "overly promotional". Someone here is very upset about having this designation placed on one of her hubs an cannot understand what the problem is. I'd like to know, myself. Thanks.
Perhaps that should be changed so hoppers are not wasting their efforts?
The definition is very simple.
One possibility is that it has two or more links to the same domain.
Another possibility is that it has a link or links to a prohibited domain (e.g. Clickbank).
The third possibility is that it appears to be written solely to promote a business or website.
Some of the hubs were loaded with ads, and others were only photos. Yes, some did have many links to other sites to buy something.
I see so many new hubs that are disguised as an ad for their company.

Someone recently stated that there are limits to how much you can link to your own hubs. Does anybody know the limitations?

I just logged in and it shows every single one of my hubs highlighted in pink, to need review. The majority of these were well trafficked and featured hubs or editor's choice. Did something happen? I tried looking in the questions and forums and didn't see anything. I am not a former Squidoo person...

I just had a hub called as "Overly Promotional". It's not a great Hub, but I can't see how it can possibly fit that description. It's here:http://hubpages.com/hub/super14It is about the Super 14 Rugby Competition and provides many links to sites with info about the teams involved -- links...
