    Hi someone.. anyone... whoever has the knowledge! 

    I have had a message about revising my hub.  It states it the reason was 'Deceptive Tags, Title, or Category'.  I have streamlined my tags now - I havent submitted for publishing yet - but the message is still there.  Would the message disappear if the hub was more acceptable or would it still be there until read through?

    I am only just starting to get my head around the tagging situation and it was a shame that it was spotted before my editing - I have 30 to look through and change.  I have gone through other hubs already, making them more appropriate, but havent had the chance on this one.

    Anyway, the updated title of my hub is Human Beings – Slaves to Nature! A Humorous Theory. 
    The category is Entertainment...Comedy/Humour.
    These are the revised tags picked from adwords tool...
    mother nature.. human nature.. human beings..humorous theory.. slaves nature.. nature slaves.. modern nature.. nature meaning.. nature life.. nature essay.. theory of nature.. nature view ..nature truth.. ethics nature.. morality nature ..nature theory.. nature of man

    The message says that I should clarify this in the forum or 'contact us'.

    I am finding this tagging business very difficult.

    Thanks guys and gurls x

      Maybe your category is conflicting with the overall "nature" of your tags...granted the intention of your hub may be humorous. As you stated, tags can be tricky and sometimes only acceptable in a literal sense. If the tags you are using are not literally used within the context of your hub that could be the source of your problem.

      Hope this helps!
