Two days ago I received an email from hubpages informing me that adsense had been removed from one of my hubs because of deceptive tagging etc. The message says that basically if you continue like this you will be banned forever. What crime and deception had I committed?
My hub was deceptively categorised under the "food and cooking- beverage recipes- wine recipes." It has been re-categorised "Food and cooking- beverages and wine" and re-published.
Now, I am pleased it is in the correct category but isn't it a little ridiculous to be made to feel you are in the last chance saloon over such a minor detail.
By the way, the only change I had made was to comine two paragraphs. I read somewhere that google likes opening paragraphs of 150 words plus.
Well, I have got that off my chest now.
I'm sure that the message you got was either automated or one that is probably sent out in all such cases - don't take it too personally.
As long as it is fixed and correct now, I don't think there should be a problem...
The whole Adsense thing is a crock to me. I got banned the very first week and after 11 months still don't know why. I've been here almost a year and haven't missed Adsense once. Imagine that. Of course, I ain't using hubpages to get rich either.
You are quite right, of course I shouldn't take automated emails personally.
It must be about the Adsense block being displayed with your first paragraph. However, if you read it rite and remember correctly, then it is just a myth.
Seanorjohn you may want to check your tags. You may have lot of unrelated tags to your hub. Deceptive tagging does not mean deceptive categorization. Anyways if the warning is removed from the hub then all is good!!

I've applied 3 times and I'm still not accepted. I really like hubpages and I don't want to switch to another platform. I put a ton of effort into my hubs and really hope someone can help me out. Any suggestions?...

I seem to have come to HP just before all the changes. I have put in almost F/T hours on the days I write my hubs. I've read whole books, not only the ones I review, but for material for my hubs. I think what I write is...
