    Could somebody please explain why, when I Google myself, a Hub article that I have posted here and on my own site (as disclosed at the top of the Hub posting), it says "Blocked - Hot Hubs"?

    When I click on the link, it takes me here...

    Below is what comes up on the Google search result.
    I know about url posting etc in forums, but this is the direct cut and paste.

    Blocked - Hot Hubs

      The google result you have there is a link to a tag page. There are hundreds of thousands, if not millions of them, because when a tag is added to a hub, if there is not already a page for that specific tag a new page is created. It's part of the reason HP does so well on search engines by creating an automatic system of relevant interliking.

      Google indexes hubpages tag pages and many have PR of 3,4,5(which is why adding the correct tags, both in number and relevance, to a hub is so important). Each tag you add is a backlink to your hub.

      Have you used the tag "blocked" on any of your hubs?

      When I googled tobyhansenwriter I saw one result for "Writers Block - Hot Hubs" and you have added that tag to your writers block hub. I didn't see the "Blocked - Hot Hubs" one though.

      I'm not sure I'm explaining it very well - you might be better reading this hub that explains the whole tagging system very well.

        That's a completely different issue and your hub is not blocked as such - it has either had ads removed or has been unpublished. You can always correct the hub so that it meets the guidelines or if you believe it already does, contact the team and ask them to manually review it.

    Thanks Susana S. Wrote a Hub on writers' block, but do not think I used blocked as a tag. Will double check and get back to you.

    Edit... Have checked the tags fir this Hub, and have not used the word "blocked" as a tag. This will not stop people accessing the Hub from within HP, though, will it?

      Not at all. It doesn't mean your hub is blocked in any way either internally or externally.
