I recently had my hub flagged because of duplicate text. It was a poem and I also posted this poem to Ezine@rticles, Face book and Twitter. After checking the Hub rules I saw that they only allow 2 links per hub. Is that why I have had my hub flagged because I effectively have three links?
Could someone clear this up for me please?
If the major part(or full) of the hub content is dulicated, you can't have outgoing links. And, you will get a penalty on the hub's score.
Links refers to outbound links from your hub, which as far as I can tell you don't have. A duplicate hub will have a lower score, but as long as you don't have any links on it you can leave it published if you like. The notice that appears is just a warning.
