Yesterday when I try to put the link starting with
http://hubpages.com/ .......... I got a message on wikipedia that this site is blacklisted. I forcely want create a url redirecting script on my host and paste their.
Now my question is did i done anything wrong.
The reason the domain would be blacklisted is that plenty of others have done what you've tried to do. Wikipedia isn't about getting free and easy traffic.
Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a self-promotion site.
I'm not sure I understand what this means.
Found a problem, created a workaround, good job.
As long as your link is useful you havent done anything wrong - this site is blacklisted because most were just submitting crap for links.
I do hope your hub and wiki entry were written in more careful english then your forum post though!
My thought of pasting link there is not for promotion or to get traffic... According to me I've not done anything wrong in this section.....
My question is: Is it correct to paste a redirecting URL instead of actual URL Because of the blacklisting of hub-pages there.
Well, If you people still think I've done wrong.... I will remove the link from there.... Thanks for the help and feedback.
No. More than anything, please do not mess with wikipedia.
If you post a link that goes to one of your own articles, then you aren't contributing in the spirit of wikipedia.
Using a redirecting URL is only going to make you look even more devious.
If wikipedia allows pasting redirecting URL, that means there is no problem. Yet many blacklisted site users may use this technique for backlinks. I think soon wikipedia may put control on putting redirecting URL to it's site.
Is it true that redirecting url's can be treated as backlinks by search engines or by any other crawler type.
It's no problem... until a human editor checks the link and sees where it is leading.

I was listing my hub on one of the pages of wikipedia when it gave the following error:The spam filter blocked your page save because it detected a blacklisted hyperlink. If you did not add the link yourself, it most likely was added by another editor before being blacklisted. You will need to...

I just checked a few of my former lenses, and it seems like 301 redirects from Squidoo don't work anymore.Does anyone know anything about this? I used to have some social media traffic, mostly from Pinterest and Google+. That traffic is lost now. Cheers,

I noticed a pin to one of my hubs was blocked (likely due to redirecting since the other reasons don't seem to apply.)The pin in question:https://www.pinterest.com/pin/20618110770864293/Note it takes you to hubpages.com/hub/Castles-in-France which will redirect to my subdomain. However, Pinterest...

Well surprise surprise with this one. I was checking for plagiarism and clicked on a link that looked like it would go to Hubpages and instead it bounced quickly to Hubpages and then over to a spam website. This is something new and I presume I will not be the only one experiencing it. Be on the...

Hey guys I am just wondering I am part of a lot of social forums and discussion sites and I was wondering if it is possible to share my hubpages article links on there instead of re writing everything on there this will bring more traffic to hubpages. But I was wondering if that is against the...
