    Hello,

    I wanted to ask about what spammy elements my article has: https://discover.hubpages.com/travel/11 … n-new-york

    I am getting unpublished due to spammy elements, and when I click on it, I get the list about adding the links.

    Could you give me some insights on what I should improve? I am a first-time writer for hubpages.

    Thanks

      Have you ever been to NYC?  Also, some of the Broadway shows you mentioned, l believe, are no longer on Broadway.

      One thing that I noticed on your article is that all of the image source links are to Unsplash. If you have more than two links pointing to the same URL/Domain it's considered spammy. I never use more than 2 images from any one source for this reason.

        If all the images are different, but all are from the same source, could that be consider spammimg?                                 Otherwise, all the photos I captured with my phone, and camera, and used for my articles are spamig? I think not.

        I think Unsplash, Pexels, etc. are whitelisted.

    Did you use AI to write the article?

    If not, then try taking the links out. You can always add them back later.

        You can start your own thread regarding your issue. However, do not try to hijack this thread.

      Your profile looks like it was written using AI. Instead, why don't you tell us a little about your educational and professional background, and elaborate a bit on your areas of expertise.

      404. I suspect Ai might have been involved. It did sort of have that feel.

      I did not use AI to write it. The only assistance that I had was from Grammarly to proofread it.

      I will try to publish the article without the links.

      The only difference when I compared published articles on your profiles to mine is related to the style of writing.

        Yes. Try to avoid wordiness and flowery adjectives. The skill is to convey your ideas in a clear and easily understandable manner.

        And don't use 'we' when you mean 'I'. You aren't a team, you are a singular writer. That's why some of us suspected AI.

        You need to write from personal experiences. Otherwise, you sound robotic and glib.

      Lazar, you need to add a list of references at the end of your article that you have used to format your work. This will give your article more credibility.

      Here is how to do this: In HP's manuscript software, go to "Supplementary" under the heading "Add Content Capsules" and click on "Link."

      The link capsule will automatically appear at the end of your article. You can title the links capsule "Links" or "References." Then, you can add text links from the sources that you have used to write your article.

      In your article, you mention the names of at least three Broadway shows. Please note that the names of the shows must be in italics and not in quotes.

      Once you get your images sorted out, be sure to add a caption to each of your graphics that relates to the overall theme of your article. You also need to add a graphic and corresponding caption at the beginning of your article.

      Remember, the title of your article and its overall theme should always be synonymous.

      Sorry please good day could someone check my latest article to see how good it is. The one I wrote about Ai is slowly killing us. Check it and give your observations.

        Can you start your own thread?

        And include a link.

        Did you write it with an  AI tool?
