My friend Goody6 has had a big injustice done to him by the hub pages. His hub was just removed...
from the hub pages publication. He doesn't know any reason why they did this, and the hub pages reason isn't specific enough to let him know what he must do to correct this problem. He has had this hub on the hub pages since last year. He has 208 followers, and at least 75 comments, and it was popular hub. Can "ANYONE" tell us what must done to correct this problem?
It's very simple (and probably says as much at the top of the hub that has been removed): All you have to do is contact HP staff and they will help you figure out why the hub has been unpublished.
You can do that here: http://hubpages.com/contact_us/
I've had hubs pulled down after having been up for a long time. Google changes its rules, and so, when their rules change, hubs that might have been in compliance at one point in time, suddenly aren't. While I sometimes feel that the reasons for this are absurd, it really doesn't matter what I feel, because HP is a privately owned, for-profit company. They don't have to be "fair," nor are they required to grant us the "freedom of the press." They aren't the government, and you and me ain't the press, at least not exactly.
So, tell your friend to take a breath and calm down. Tell him/her to read what it says at the top of the hub that was unpublished (which probably has a link to the part of the Terms of Service from which the violation is being identified). Do what it says there. If you can't modify the hub to meet the standards, or are unwilling to, then take the article and publish it somewhere else. If none of that works, and you still need assistance, email HP and let them try to help you out.
Just remember to be polite. Having a hissy fit and screaming about "injustice" won't get you anywhere.
I've had this same issue more than once. I don't worry about it, if HP doesn't want my content, there are other sites that DO want it.
Here's my advice, tell your friend to open an account with blogger, anytime HP decides my material is to real for this site, I simply move it to blogger. This is a better site than blogger, buy our content shouldn't have to be compromised, simply find the right place for it.

On the 18th May, my hub was flagged for being over promotional.I removed some links of so called prohibited sites (affiliate links) and left in a very useful link to my article on Ezine Articles and a Squidoo lens of mine which is also very informative on the same subject. I submitted the hub for...

I can't believe what's just happened. One of my hubs was scraped and stolen. No big deal right? Happens all the time and its something that seasoned online authors get used to after a while because hunting thieves down is almost impossible. Well here's a new twist. Hub Pages found the stolen...

Does Hub pages have any standards at all for quality of writing?I've worked a long time on my writing skills, and while it is not perfect, it is readable. I have been hub hopping and am finding hubs that are barely coherent. Is this okay with hub pages? Many are nothing more than...

Hello I transferred here from Squidoo with 200+ fairly decent lenses. I think 40 must since have been unpublished due to 'violations' including affiliate links, overly promotional etc. I can't give the URL now of one that has me gobsmacked, because it has been unpublished by HubSpot, leaving...

Does most of your traffic come from within Hub Pages or from outside Hub Pages?I've noticed that most of my traffic comes from google. I consider this a good thing. However I had been expecting most of my traffic to come from Hub Pages during my first year. I'm wondering if this is similar to...
