How is citing websites and photo attributions considered over promoting?
I recently noticed some hubs that have been published for some time have been labeled as overly promotional. The only websites I have listed in my articles are those I am citing and all others are photo attributions. I do not add direct links If this is the case how do I properly credit web authors for the work they allow me to quote. How is this considered promoting. I do not commercialize my hubs and am not promoting the website. when asked for direct links in photo attribution boxes I add them. Why was the hub previously approved now it is not?
You can only have a maximum of two outgoing links to any one website (barring sites like Wikipedia or Facebook).
Check out the FAQ for info on overly promotional.
Then why does it ask for url address when adding an image. So if I use more than one image from the same website its considered promotional. Or do I simply attribute it without the address?
Some people attribute at the bottom of a hub in a text capsule. Or use 'ibid'.
Because every photo credit is still a back link, so they say to only have two going to any one website.
The best way to not run into this problem is to produce your own media for your hubs.
If this isn't an option for you, then try to use a wider variety of sources for your photos and videos.
They still want you to correctly give credit to the website where you found the pictures. I'm not sure about TOS, but maybe you could link 2 of the pictures with the proper credit given, and then simply give credit on the others without the links?
You can have only two links in a hub and few products as well. The rules have been change here in hubpages.
