I have posted my 3rd page and their little cyber monkey keeps telling me i am overly promoting another site. I removed any hint of that and yet they keep flagging me, and won't let my page be released. I have information that I am trying to share that i have written and do not want to have to re-write the entire topic over again because it is located somewhere else.
Additionally these guys don't even have a real e-mail address to contact. The one they publish does not work. I guess when people don't treat you with respect you move on.
Ted, if you have a problem, contact the HubTeam at http://hubpages.com/contact_us/
they will help you with your issue. And, if you are trying to post material that is published elsewhere on the web, that Will get you flagged, as it is considered duplicate content.
Also, linking to another site more than twice in a hub is considered overly promotional. If you did that, remove your links before you try and republish.
try what Jane and Janetta said and report it to HP asap
give it a little more time. I just looked at your hubs and they don't seem promotional to me. Those tags sometimes take a day to go away.
Hi and welcome.
You can have as many hyperlinks as you like in a Hub, but you can only have two to each site (and it's safer to have only one).
However, if you post several Hubs and they all have one or two links to the same site, that will also get you flagged.
I have several Hubs which all link to my belly dance site, several that link to my flamenco site, and so on. That's allowed because I also have a number of Hubs that don't link to those sites. Write a few Hubs on other topics, then you'll find you can include your website link in your insurance Hubs without any trouble.
Thanks Marisa...You provided the information I was looking for. Have a great day..Ted

Do you often flag content on HubPages?I see a few hubs everyday that are in English, but poorly written. I hate to flag a hub if someone is just trying to start on HP, but I don't like reading poorly written hubs! What are your thoughts?

I published two Hubs back in January. I never had any problem with them previously in all this time. Then all of a sudden I get two separate emails flagging my two Hubs as being Over-Promotional....How can that be? The few links I did have were pertinent to the individual article, and...

Hi All:All my hubs have been flagged as overly promotional even those pages that have no links in them .Two of my 30 hubs are about Chinese New Year and how to make a fruit cake without any links whatsoever. I am wondering if a mistake was made with my hubs or I am I missing something. Most of the...
