I received a denial notice from Kontera based on my site being "offline." What does that mean? Can I fix that problem myself?
The day before, the Kontera boxes were all over my site. Today they are gone.
If they are referring to the website you have mentioned on your profile page, indeed it does appear to be offline. More specifically, it looks like a parked domain without any relationship to the contents that you claim on your profile page. Googling the address directs to what appear to be the correct page, but entering the URL directly does not seem to be working.
Thanks for replying to my question.
I don't know tech terminology well so does parked mean my site is not set up to interface with the internet? Please explain.
How did my site become a parked domain. I think I may have made a mess of everything when I entered the kotera Id number on the site profile. I did not enter URL information from Kotera on my site. Could that be the problem that makes me appear to be parked.
You are welcome.
A "parked domain" usually refers to when someone does not want to use their website for a period, they rent it out for advertisement purposes. I believe it happens via a form of redirect. When I visited the URL to which you are referring on your profile page, what I saw was a page without any contents other than a lot of links - which looks exactly like a parked domain. I had apparently gotten redirected to this address: <snipped>
I then tried to Google the same URL, and by following one of the top links, I arrived at your site, apparently with the appropriate content.
I tried to open the URL again just now, and this time it loaded the correct site. Chances are the problem may have fixed itself.
I have no firsthand experience with Kontera, but seems to me that simply using your HubPages profile page would be the safest bet to get you approved. Hopefully, the fact you have only published one hub will not be a problem (Adsense likes to have a few more hubs).
I got this message from kontera, what does this mean?(i am using wordpress and my site name is hackerreloaded.com)
Dear ahsish, Thank you for applying to Kontera. Unfortunately, your account with Kontera has been denied due to the fact that your site does not meet our publisher qualification that can be found at publisher guidelines. Denial Reason: Offline.

I can find an existing hub on my account page but when I try to feature it on my profile page I can't find it on the menu (as if it doesn't exist)

Hi,Hi,I keep getting the message that my hubs could be featured, but no matter how often I change them, they never are. I keep getting told that they may contain "spammy elements" but I'm not sure what these...

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is...

Is something wrong with that feature or did I accidentally turn off something? I have 6 hubs In The Spotlight and it hasn't moved for days. No matter what time of day or night I look at it, it's stuck on the first one...
