I wrote an article about how to buy products to sell from home. Two days later it was unpublished saying I had prohibited websites. which only to worldwide brands. I have been getting automated responses and not by a real human. Are we not allowed to have links to worldwide brands. I have asked this question several times to the team and I have yet to get a real response which it has been over a week. Also, it said my article was overly promotional. I only have two links in the article, period. Is it this frustrating to publish a hub. I'm frustrated.
It's difficult to give a helpful answer without knowing more details. When you say worldwide brands, I'm assuming you mean "household" brands like Coke, McDonald's, Tide, etc. that everyone would recognize? I'm not sure why it would be necessary to link to those, though.
I can't say this is what's going on as I'm not privy to the inner workings of HubPages, but as a content reader I tend to come across 2 major types of links. The first kind are helpful links that direct readers to helpful sites or brands that provide high quality products and services that are discussed in the article. They are used to give readers a starting point, and are supplementary to the article. Then there are links that are so promotional that the article is supplementary to the link. I would assume that the latter type of linking is likely to be viewed as overly promotional, so that may be something to consider.
Assuming that the articles are up-to-standard quality-wise in all other respects, I would recommend focusing on making sure that the links exist to enhance the Hub instead of vice-versa. Best of luck!
