Hello all, I published my first hub last night and it was marked as "spammy" what does this mean?
In my hub I talked about a theory and new perspective on a topic. I referenced a good book on the subject and inserted an amazon link to the book. I have seen this done in many hubs so I am confused about how this is considered "spammy"... is there anything else that would qualify my article as "spammy"? What should I be looking for? Thanks for any input!
I'm guessing this is about the one and only hub you have visible on this account?
Your article has to be really long, and present a reason for the Amazon capsule to be there. Your hub was flagged as spammy because it's kinda short, and the whole last paragraph is about the book. Try more content, and less promotion.
My recent article also got tagged as "spammy." I guessed the tag was due to my links to some websites that were tangent to the topic. I removed the links and am now awaiting for review.

I read before that:Substandard simply means that the quality of the Hub does not meet HubPages' standards. Below are some common reasons that a Hub may be moderated as substandard:•"Test" or otherwise unfinished Hubs•Very little content•Poorly formatted content•Low quality...

One of my best performing hubs is marked as idle. It has had 31 views just this week - better than many of my other hubs that are not idle. I believe this is a mistake.Here is the hub: <link snipped>

What does it mean when a hub is marked 'editors choice'?

Hello fellow Hubbers --One of my Hubs was recently marked with a "c" and reads "possibly copied by someone else." What should I do about this? Are there steps I should take or will Hubpages look into it? Thanks!
