Have you had any articles flagged by HubPages lately?
I had an article that has been published for over a month that was flagged for "not meeting Hubpages standards" . It was a travel article on Siesta Key...I am stumped as to why they flagged me....
Hubpages passed a new rule that you have to have at least 50 words for every amazon affiliate link. Also it may be that Hubpages doesn't look to kindly to copyrighted images of celebrities or Hubs full of pictures of scantly clad women, especially if there is not all that much meaningful text.
Ideally hubpages are looking for Hubbers who provide real value, great info, solution to problems or showcasing valuable and useful products even.
I have nothing against your hub, but the images can easily be found on any celebrity website or doing an image search on each celebrity on Google images.
Maybe if you take off a few of the images, make some of the other images smaller, add some more text from your own research and take off a few amazon links, hubpages will get off your back.
Hope you don't take my criticism to heart, just trying to offer some advice.
Good luck with your hub!
i've had 2 so far. one was 9 months old but i guess there are methods to the madness.
Which Hub was it? And did you check out the amount of words you've put in?
My very first hub was flagged today for being "Purely Personal". I agreed with their assessment, but why did they not do anything about it for 2 years and then flag it today?
OMG don't even get me started on this one. GREAT QUESTION! As you might guess, I am fully animated and still experiencing the annoyance and frustration. Truly, if I started to tell you it would take the entire page.
Hmmm, there is the option here of hitting the 'make a hub' about this isn't there, LOL
PR-my very first hub, published for over 10 months, and NOT substandard by any means, was flagged and pulled off the published rack b/c (per the letter I received) it was 'substandard'.
I saw RED. On investigation it was flagged b/c it had "too much personal content" OK...do ya think! It is a MEMOIR!!!
It was a mothers day memoir written the w/e of mothers day-the w/e I joined last year and most certainly my virgin hub, LOL
So...I later posed the question here: are memoirs allowed? and guess what? My question became a featured question in March in one of the weekly newsletters. LOL Oh, the irony of it all.
So...the short answer to this question is: YES.
BTW-I, out of a matter of principle, have yet to 'fix' that wonderful Mothers Day Madness hub that was flagged.
Oh, and in case anyone wants to assume that it did not fit standards by way of # of words (about 1200), quality of writing (take a look at any of my current hubs-it's more of that), # of products used in it (zero) # of watermarked videos or photos (none-used one personal photo I took), etc etc. In other words-other than it had too much personal content it was (ego here:) 'flawless'. LOL
I guess I am not the only one that has had that happen, or the only one to see red (Denise)...It really did bother me but I'm over it....I think it would help if they were more specific...but after 2 years they should be grandfathered in! lol

Are you the personality type who just can't wait to catch someone who is breaking a hub rule? Or, are you more likely to ignore the rule breaking? I think the answer to this question lies in the intent of the real...

In light of the Google algo change, it is now obvious and confirmed that hub-hopping is VERY important. I feel that if you publish here, you should hub hop when you can. As it should hopefully increase our revenue and...

Hi,I've read an e-mail I received with the rules and the ONLY thing I could see was that I had 2 links, so I removed one and still got flagged. I think I followed the rest of the rules. Any suggestions? Here's my hub...

Can you use hubs that have originally been posted on Hubpages on other sites?

If we flag a hub, does it say which hubber put in the flag, or is it anonymous. I mean, could someone turn around and flag your hub to retaliate? How does it work exactly? Thanks.
