I got an email from hubpages. 'you have a comment' blah blah. I clicked on the link and found some of the words on my hub had been highlighted. They were links that I hadnt put in. I checked my hub via my account and didnt find any of the words highlighted. Can anyone explain this? Is it a phishing or spam email?
This is my hub.

This is a link from the hubpages email reminder...

Can you see the highlighted wording and how it differs?
Thanks for your help x
Are you sure they're not Kontera ads, or whatever they are called? I noticed that in one of my hubs and when I rolled my mouse over the linked word a little pop-up came on with an ad in it.
Yes! That is exactly it! Is it direct market targeting at me? Does anyone else get this?
Im not signed up to Kontera, don't know anything about it. Any enlightenment?
Thanks for your reply, btw.
p.s. I cant understand why the link hasnt shown up. It is definately there in the email. *confused*
When you start a new hub, a box will be at the top of the editing page. It has several boxes you can check and uncheck, inc. 'view a slideshow' and a few boxes regarding ads. Make sure the box that says "enanle Kontera ads' is not marked if you don't want any of their links on your hub. U don't have to be signed up for it to work, only if you want to benefit from any advertising they do on your hubs
I read that it wasnt worth getting set up on Kontera unless you were getting lots of revenue from the traffic to the hubs. Should I revisit this idea and get signed up?
Again, thanks for your support x
I wouldn't. It takes quite a bit to make any money with it and the links tend to mess with the aesthetics of the hub. If you've ever visited a page set up with Kontera, it's fairly annoying
I've found that unless you're getting at least 10,000 pageviews per month, you may not make the minimum earnings. Earn less than $5 per month and they won't roll over or even accrue.
However, during the 40% of the time, when HubPages affiliate codes are associated with the Hubs, you may see in-text advertising. HubPages is actually testing a new service that's not Kontera during their ad share time.
ps I checked both links and neither one had any hilighted words

How do I know if my hub needs revision? Do I get an email from hubpages or am I supposed to guess?I just published my first hub and when I scroll down to the very bottom of my account page, there is a bar and the "needs revision" is highlighted in pink. I'm not sure if that's how it's...

Have you had this happen to you? I searched for the highlighted broken link but I could not find one. So how do you clear the notice?

Just gaging anyone else's earnings here. I just checked google adsense and I have earned 64 dollars in 18 months. I've only written 19 Hubs and most of them don't get any traffic. Any thoughts?

I just logged in and it shows every single one of my hubs highlighted in pink, to need review. The majority of these were well trafficked and featured hubs or editor's choice. Did something happen? I tried looking in the questions and forums and didn't see anything. I am not a former Squidoo person...

Did HubPages provide an explanation regarding why you can no longer easily share a Hub on Twitter using a button on the Hub? Why did they replace it with Flipboard?
