Is the topic of online surveys a banned topic on HubPages ?
and where can I find a list of banned topics?
There aren't any rules that say you cannot write a hub about online the surveys. Though you play hell trying to produce a hub worthy hub about them. The trick is to actually write something informative that people can learn from, and not to just produce another article trying to get people to sign up for online surveys. You'll also want to avoid doing the same old "how to make money online" scheme, cause it's been done to many times.
Online surveys aren't banned, but over commercialism is pretty much a no-no. Hubpages wants original content that people want to read, and no one wants to read another hub about signing up for surveys.
Well I wrote the article about the scam of online surveys and the automated upload wouldn't let me publish it. I emailed the HubPages team because if a person read my article they wouldn't have seen anything wrong with it.
I waited 3 working days, got no reply and published the article on InfoBarrel.
I would just like a list of banned topics before I go to the effort of writing something.
“Paid Online Surveys” is now considered by HubPages as a topic that has become saturated with low-quality Hubs published by affiliate marketers. So, Hubs written on this topic must be of exceptional quality and can not contain affiliate links, or links that point to sales or lead forms. Hubs that don't comply with the new rules can be unpublished. However, high-quality, informative Hubs are still welcome! In the meantime, some hubbers unpublished their hubs to put them soon other sites still accepts affiliate links (e.g. Squidoo). I have 3 hubs on specific online survey panels that actually pay their panelists, and are still running on HubPages after making minor changes. They were actually moderated and re-published by HubPages Staff, not automatically like the case of other topics.
