My hub was flagged for excessive promotion. I have no idea what this means. I simply created a hub from an article I wrote for Helium. The link to Helium that was in the article was not of my doing. I have edited the text and taken out the link. Is this sufficient?
Fran, you've just discovered the big lie that Helium tells you - that you're free to publish your Helium content elsewhere.
You can publish your articles elsewhere, but the difficulty is finding somewhere that will accept them. Most reputable, well-paying sites hate duplicate content and will penalize you for it.
If you want to write for HubPages (and it's well worth it) you need to write new, original articles.
Try and republish But I do not think 1 external link to one external page is the trouble. Usually a hob flagged as over promotional will have two or more links to the same page. Outside of that I do not know any other reason for that flag. If removing the link has not helped I would suggest e-mailing the staff.
Submit it for approval and find out.
Usually, when a Hub is flagged for excessive promotion, it has more than two links to the same website.
You can have multiple links from your Hub, but must be to other places, each independent, but no more than 2 to one.
At least, that's what I've learned so far. But, I'm sketchy at best on that. I don't link outside of HubPages, as of yet.

By means of substandard quality? One of which has almost 700 views on it. These three hubs have been on here for over a year and are now being flagged although they generate comments and daily reads. I don't understand if they were good enough for the last year and a half and now aren't? Please...
