Does hubpages usually consider a hub answering a question purely personal?
I wrote a hub on forgiveness a couple weeks ago as a response to a question. I directly answered the question. In order to answer I had to be personal. Now I am being told to change it. I don't know how to or honestly why I should when it may have contained personal info but was a direct answer. Is this common or do I have someone flagging me for fun? I have already sent them an email, waiting for a reply.
Sounds like someone's trying to help you write an answer hub that will get traffic. Allegedly, Google's algorithm is geared towards providing searchers with answers that aren't prejudiced or personalized.
The answer to a query can be personalized, depending on the subject matter. If you were giving spiritual advice, for example, you want your piece to be steeped in facts. Might not seem like it, but many people will click off a page on this subject matter that gives a personal example as an answer.
Forgiveness would probably fall into a similar category with Google. Depending on the question, part of the article could give a personal example, but if the query is asking what forgiveness is, Google's algorithm would probably like a more direct answer.
you mean hubpages sent you an email asking you to change the contents of your hub?

I have been on HubPages only for two months. I did not think that "Asking & Answering Questions" was a complicated matter.But I have come across a question that if you ask a question and then answer it with your own hub, it is "faking it". My understanding was...

How do you link to an existing hub, or hyperlink text, when answering a Hubpages question?Often I see questions that I could easily answer with an existing hub, but I can't seem to be able to put the link in my answer. I've tried using html but it is being stripped from the answer. I've...
