What are spammy elements?
I am getting mag on my article again and again,not publishing thats there are spammy elements.Please explain what those are?
Too many links to one site.
Excessive Amazon capsules.
An article that's entirely promotional.
A spammy element is anything that directs the reader to leave the page and go somewhere else.
The most obvious is any links leading anywhere as Lisa has pointed out.
But if you aren't using links but just using language that suggests the reader needs to visit a different site to find the information they want then that is no good either.
Your reader should be able to get all the information they need on the subject from your article.

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

I understand the editing process, quality control and for articles not to appear "spammy" My article was about slat chlorine generators and a sentence in there about testing salinity levels in the water. "This can be done by using a salt test meter or salt test strips" I...
