Links appearing in my hubs I did not create - what is happening?
I haven't been here in a while and I just noticed I have links to the terms "holiday shopping" to some website I have never seen. The link is obvious because I do not link in the first paragraph. Has my HP account been compromised? HELP! Anyone else experiencing or have experienced this? Is this hurting my standing with Google? And with HubPages quality?
Hi GMA, I can't find your hub "holiday Shopping, " I did look at a holiday hub that you were at 3 hours ago, is that the one you've changed? Anyway, if you think your hub has been compromised, it might be a good idea to change your password, it won't hurt anything and it may keep a hacker from using your account. Also, check you adsense account and make sure it has not been compromised. hope this helps you, Deborah
This might be a dumb question, but are you sure it was on a hub (here on hubpages) and not on a lens (on squidoo)? Squidoo automatically adds textual links, unless you disable it.
I've seen hubs here where even the writer himself referred to his hubs as lenses, so I know that writers who use both platforms can sometimes think they're on Squidoo when they're commenting on Hubpages, and vice versa. I sometimes have several windows open simultaneously, and I see how it could get mixed up.
Other than that, try check the url of your hub and contact HP staff for help.
Maybe somone has linked tags to your hub via their own hub....?
I just now noticed a yellow warning box on my Macʻs display screen. It was underneath my hubpages account bookmark. "Warning - This site is attempting to download multiple links." Then it asked me to deny or allow . . . I denied. Perhaps hubpages has been compromised:( If so its gonna be BAD for all of us!
I have not found myself in the same situation but have seen active links I did not put in my hubs and when I click on them they just say hubpages. I just delete them and that seems to be the end of it.
Check out this hub from one of my favorite writers - there are links that go to external sites. This is not how Linda writes.

This is similar to what I saw in my hub. These links go to another site. This is not just happening to me.
I changed my password but I had to have help from HP staff to change my password.

I have been attempting to pin hubs to Pinterest this evening and it kept saying whoops and something about the account. So I went to Pinterest and just looking at it from a glance, all looked okay until I clicked...

I'm almost sure that Google never texts their customers about their profiles being compromised but I would like to verify this fact. I received this message two minutes ago and it says: "Your profile has been...

I honestly want to know. Was there a recent change in hubpages.com policies, or did I do something to inadvertently upset someone? All of a sudden I have started getting a flood of e-mails about one hub after the next...

Over the last two days my hub viewings are all down to practically 0. This after a huge rise to about 400 a day. What's happening on HubPages? Who else is affected?
