One of my hubs, which I've spent 4-5 hours to write is removed. The reason is "Overly Promotional: This Hub excessively promotes another site."
It has received 15 very positive comments in a very short time.
The hub was: http://hubpages.com/hub/Free-Internet-M … -Resources
I have written 20 methods to increase your website's traffic. Each method had links to authority sites. I haven't linked more than once to the same site.
It was a very long hub (100% unique content) written by me and offered some very good tips for internet marketing.
Now, I wake up and all of my work is gone.
When I first found out about hubpages, I was very excited because of this wonderful community. There are so many nice people here, it was very nice meeting you all.
But I will not be spending my valuable time anymore writing useful hubs to get deleted by mods later.
Again, it was a pleasure to be a part of this community even for a short period of time. I'm not going to be visiting hubpages anymore.
Have a great day.
Misha I haven't even seen this Hub. But I love your content on other places, like Newsvine. i am sure this is a mistake. This particular hub, maybe it had more than 1 link per 100 words, they don't like that, even to authority sites. maybe it had too many marketing links and not any links to places like wikipedia - yes, I know it makes sense to link a marketing article to marketing authority sites, but with a lot of links like this, they like to see two or three wikipedia type sites don't ask me why.
listen I know several people, they don't write stuff nearly as good as yours, they take out any affilaite links over 2 links max, the problem goes away.
try again, I'd hate to lose you
Jenn Knows, maybe you should email HubPages and explain your situation to them. They seem to be really understanding.
They don't remove hubs for nothing.
You need to figure out what exactly rules you broke. If you cannot do this yourself, email hubpages and they probably will explain.
Don't leave yet. This is a great community. Find out what rules you broke, and correct them. Liek Misha sad.
Helpful tip: Try to stay away from more than 2 links to the same outside site, and you should be able to stay away from being overly promotional.
We've had some inexperienced people doing moderation for the last month or so, and sometimes they make mistakes as was the case here. Fortunately we've got someone that will be devoted to moderation and other support tasks full time starting on Monday, which will help immensely.
Ok, I thought there had to be some mistake, because there was nothing promotional in that hub. Thanks for the nice comments
I hope this doesn't happen in the future, and I'm sure Paul will look into this issue more seriously.
I won't be leaving
Yeah! I like your Hub. Hopefully, it will all get worked out!
That's an excellent hub.
If I were you though I'd put a referral tracker in your link to hubpages.com in your list titled "User Content Generated Sites Like Hubpages".
Indeed it's a great hub Jenn. I added it straight to my favourites when you published it and am working my way through the list . So glad to see that it's back.

Wouldn't it be nice if some explanation about the hub came with the above mentioned notices. All you get is the general notice that you hub is overly promotional or substandard and it needs to be fixed. If it is re-submitted and is not fixed properly you could be banned from...
