Heavy and unfair moderation

    Once again I am being forced to remove all links to Amazon Associates from my blog, or else it won't be featured.

    I wrote https://hubpages.com/autos/How-to-Warm- … er-Weather and have 2 links in it, not capsules, and yet Hubpages won't feature it.

    On that basis, I'm beginning to wonder what's the point in writing here anymore. Why not just write on my own blog; where I can have control.

    Anyone any thoughts on this?

      I see an Amazon link in the text but you don't refer to the product at all. This is not the correct way to use Amazon links.

      Check out Marisa's hub: https://hubpages.com/community/How-to-M … ed-to-Know

      The Amazon section is right at the top.

    Thats hubpages for you.  I used to love it here around 2010.  But the bitching in the forums gave me the whoops.  So stopped writing here.  I deleted all my earning capacities from them and just left them.  But evidently that is not good enough as they want them all edited again and again.  So spent the last hour deleting about 50 plus articles it is not worth the hassle.

      Mmm I've deleted that post and added it to my own site. Will see how the latest goes, but if they get silly, I think I'll move that one as well. It seems all control is being taken away from Hubbers.

        Yet it was a simple and logical fix that would benefit your readers. Oh well {shrugs}.

          It will benefit my readers. On my personal blog.

        Hubbers will never have control while writing for a third party site.
        Nonetheless, all web masters are at the mercy of the likes of Google and Amazon.

      Why did you delete their capacity to earn? I have simply allowed my hubs to sit, very rarely edit them myself, mostly allow the hub team to edit them as they see fit, and currently they are doing the best they've ever done. I consider that proof that the team knows what they are doing.

      You could have been earning from them all this time. Even if they are earning just a little bit, it is basically free money once you've written them. I don't mind if I earn just a little because I am lazy and have not touched some of my articles in years. The earnings add up over time, and I have not lifted a finger past originally posting them.

    It's too bad you didn't just rewrite it using the capsules, and use the Amazon products correctly, and you would probably be earning from it as I write this. I write on Hubpages because I enjoy it and I make some money from this site. I don't find it to be a hassle at all, and I enjoy the freedom to write about what I want. Good luck to you.
