Has Hubpages suddenly become too stingy with links and images?

    Has Hubpages suddenly become too stingy with links and images?

    It's been a year since I deleted my old account here on Hubpages, and now I decided to start a new one, completely sure that I knew exactly how to get around here and how to gain the best amount possible of traffic, and... My first hub has been unpublished twice already - first, because apparently the links I posted on my hub were overly promotional (even though they were just links to a website, nothing to do with affiliates), and second because a couple of images were apparently watermarked or pixelated.

    What's up with all that?

    It's about relevance and quality.  There have been significant changes by Google during this last year, and HubPages made corresponding adaptations.  I suggest you swing by the Learning Center and read up on all the new guidelines and standards.  Things are different now.

      Dave's Hubs were primarily duplicate material (mostly Bible quotes, and not enough original thought and content from him).  He had gotten warnings for an entire year before being banned.

    This seems to be a popular question suddenly. I posted this answer to a few about how to establish links and will post it again for you because there is a discussion about your specific question as well.  there is also a bit of info by HubPages not only here where I am referring, bur I believe if you will click on the "edit: button in the black bar above your Hub it will then show you at the lower left, a bit  with buttons for "tags, "resources", "summary" and a few others. In one of those buttons there (I think) is a bit more talk about having "too many' or 'irrelevant ' which all together might clear up your confusion.

    There is also a form to ask the moderator to further explain at the Learning Center i talked about above. I hope this helps.
