Why are there so many broken links on Hubpages images from garbled urls?
I have had to fix numerous "broken links" from image links that start with http://ttp:// or something similar. It seems like the system messed them up, and wonder if anyone knows why.
I can only add my confusion to yours. The same thing occurred on one of my hubs. I'd like to know why and how Hubpages was able to change image links within hubs without the consent of authors.
I suspect it was not HP but more likely a spammer got access somehow. Although it could have also just been a programming issue when HP were changing site features too. Maybe Matthew Meyers could enlighten us on that?
The most likely answer is a programming glitch I imagine. That is, if others also experienced it.
Yea, probably a glitch, but it's a little alarming that authored content can seemingly be changed by a glitch.
Ilona, This happened to several of my hubs and to others as well. You may want to post this in the forums under "Technical Problems." There was a post about this last week that Matthew addressed implying that it was not a system problem. However, I don't recall that it was resolved and kept happening.
yeah, i have been having broken links too, better test the url links again
These have nothing to do with HP. I have gone searching for broken links and they are missing at the other end.

What does this really mean? I've tried to email the HP team and the HP editor, but both emails have been returned as "undeliverable."

I have checked a few of my articles over the course of a week, not all of them but most of the popular ones, and I noticed that when I put them in Google search they only show up through another link such as Pinterest or Twitter. They seem to have totally disappeared apart from that. Any help you...

Are shortened hub links like trackers?I am wondering if the links that are in the hubmetrics will track us the same way that our trackers do. It would be great if they did! This would be so much easier than the long, cumbersome links that we have to edit with trackers. I can cut...

How many URLs can be in a hub?I want to do a hub to help people find a certain thing. To do this I would need to post a lot of urls, though none would be links that I gain anything from. Is there a limit? I'm thinking I would need to include between 10 and 20 links all different.

I submitted http://hubimg.com/sitemaps/hub/current/ … meguru.xml as my sitemap on bing, it wasn’t accepted. Then I tried http://incomeguru.hubpages.com/robots.txt and it was accepted. However, after waiting for some hours I got this message “We weren't able to extract URLs from the...

Well the good news is I got my Adsense account approved overnight, even though I only have 5 little hubs. But I think I filled something in wrong. Their email to me says: Congratulations!Your Google AdSense application has been approved. You'll soon begin to see relevant Google ads appear on...
