Stop by the official HubPages blog for advice and tips on Map Capsule best practices.
A link to this blog post should be added to the maps capsule. So that readers who do not check out the blog, the forums or the HP newsletter know about it. Also, future hubbers would not look back at old blog posts.
Thanks for this. It explains why two of my map capsules were recently deleted.
I just went through and got rid of all my map capsules, as I'd not used them according to the best practices outlined in the blog post. On 386 published Hubs since 2012 I used the map capsule on a grand total of 6 of them. LOL!
Hopefully the editors have the ability to hunt down and delete misused map capsules, especially on the accounts of absentee Hubbers.
I only had a few as well, took them out when Paul posted about this a couple weeks ago. The best practices blog is good information.
Good question! Tangential or unrelated Map Capsules are something the editors have been informed to look for when considering articles for inclusion on network sites. We've also done some engineering work on the back end that has reduced the cost of including Map Capsules (so we definitely want authors to keep using them where it makes sense). We just figured it was also time for a "best practices" update since we know many authors like to keep updated with the latest standards for online writing.
