Why my hub got unpublished for overly promotion?
Two of my hubs recently got unpublished because of overly promotion. I checked my hubs and surprisingly I do not have any links in my hubs. Moreover, I do not even have amazon or eBay capsules in my hubs. So how can my hubs be overly promotion and what are the reasons it gets unpublished?
Without seeing the hub, I can't give an precise answer. One of the things that tends to initiate the "overly promotional" warning are the sources for graphics. This is especially true if you have the source linked to the site. For example: I had three photos each with a link to Wikimedia under each photo. I got the "overly promotional" warning. I left the active link under the first photo and deleted the link (but left the source name) under the others and the warning went away. Do you have the same source quoted for each graphic and linked to the same source? If so, try deleting the links under all except one.
When you create a new hub, on the top right hand side of the page, you will see a message. This message could comment if you used capitals in a heading or had more than 2 amazon capsules. It will also say if you are under the word count. This happened more so in older hubs.
Anyway to get to the point, certain titles (my own experience) are overly promotional. So a message comes up saying this. If you ignore and still publish it, they will pull it off hubpages.

I just finished writing a hub on "The fear of public speaking".It was part of a paper I did back in school, but wasn't used as a paper for grading. I found a warning on my hub that says my hub is overly promotional because it has 3 or more links to a single domain? I included the...

Wouldn't it be nice if some explanation about the hub came with the above mentioned notices. All you get is the general notice that you hub is overly promotional or substandard and it needs to be fixed. If it is re-submitted and is not fixed properly you could be banned from...

Why am I seeing ads for Maven on my unpublished, unfinished Hub? Possibly (hopefully) a glitch? This makes no sense. Nobody sees an unpublished Hub but the writer. Is Maven marketing to HubPages writers? Aren't we part of Maven? They appear to be Adsense ads, so we can't click on them anyway.I am...

Is a warning for being overly promotional on an unpublished hub a bad thing?I am working on a hub right now that will include links to several different sites. I went ahead and found the sites I intend to use and put them in an unpublished hub just as a way to save them. I intend to go...
