    My Hub was flagged for excessive promotion of another site.

    At this time it contains two links. One goes to a free report from the author of a product which is the focus of the hub. Since there is no facility to host the report here, the download must be via another site. Or I could deprive interested Hubbers of an opportunity for more information.

    The second link leads to a video hosted by the author of the product. Again, it's not my video and I have no rights to present it.

    I am attempting to provide good information concerning this product which I believe to be a useful investment for most internet marketers.

    These links lead to a site which is not owned by me, so I gain nothing from the backlinks except educating potential customers.

    My last HubPage ranked on the first page of Google for several days and held the #1 spot for 3 days during the launch of Google Payload. I thought that was good for HubPages too! It was also flagged.

    Tons of links are coming from social networking sites to HubPages.

    Please explain "substantial improvement" and I will attempt to better my hub to meet your standards.

    BTW: I took a look at some of the other  Project Quick Cash hubs...lots of links away from HubPages. I'm not trying to be difficult, I just can't discern the difference between those hubs and mine.

    Thanks for your patience,

    Unfortunately, we can't see your Hub to comment.  I suppose the question is, how much other material was there on your Hub? 

    If you wrote a full article explaining the products and the links were within that article, then I'm mystified.  If, on the other hand, you just posted a couple of links and a paragraph, then I can see why it's been flagged.

    Hubpages is intended as a place to write interesting and informative articles.  It's true there are Hubs which do no more than provide a couple of links to other places, but that doesn't mean they're acceptable, just that people haven't noticed them yet!

    Hi Marisa,

    I'm Stuart's partner and was checking on this post for him.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I know that he was rushed and wanted to get the information about the report and video "out there" first.

    Consequently, just as you pointed out, he wrote a couple of paragraphs and had the two links.

    Today he posted a nice review with NO links and resubmitted.

    Hopefully that will do the trick!

    This is a great site with super folks to help out and we want to be able to continue posting here!

    Bless you,
    Fisher,  a.k.a. Mom smile

    Hi Fisher, welcome!  I can't see the Hub yet, but will keep an eye out.

    I recommend you check out some of Darkside's excellent Hubs on how to use HubPages, I found them really helpful when I was starting out.  Also take a look at Lissie's India Hub (sorry, can't remember what it's called).  It's an example of a "Flagship" Hub and demonstrates that lots of links and videos are absolutely fine, provided there's lots of good content as well.

    Happy hubbing!

    Thanks for your comments and advice,

    My hub has still not been approved, so I have deleted it.

    "Administration" is just too well hidden and uncommunicative here.

    Nice place, but too arbitrary for me to take it seriously.
