I received a message from HubPages saying I had a link on one of my hubs that led to a site that was noit allowed. They said I have two days to fix the problem. I am not complaining about the notification or that I had to remove the link.
My problem was having to search through the hub to find the link. My suggestion is to have the links highlighted similar to the bad or broken links highlight along with a notification on our homepage about the link.
It doesn't work like "broken" links, where it highlights yellow?
Edit: I've not heard of links not allowed, which is why I asked.
It was on an old hub of mine. Most likely it is not allowed under the new TOS. Part of the email notification I got was:
As I wrote earlier, it is not a complaint about having to remove the link but only because I had to search it out.
It doesn't work like broken links links that we see on our account page and homepage.
I don't mean on the accounts page. I mean in the hub itself. Broken links show up highlighted yellow.
Sorry, SirDent, didn't think to point out where it was. If you still need help I can locate it for you.
Er... could we clarify this? What kinds of links are disallowed? Only asking because I haven't heard of such a thing, and I don't want to get into trouble

I've had a notification of a broken link on my hub 'Lest We Forget' but there is nothing highlighted. What is going on? I can't correct it if I don't know what it is!

Have you had this happen to you? I searched for the highlighted broken link but I could not find one. So how do you clear the notice?

Is it all right to put a direct download link in a hub or is that considered as promoting an illegal activity? I wanted to add a link to where some songs mentioned in my article can be downloaded directly.

Currently, we are allowed 2 text links within a hub for links to our website, blogs, or articles written elsewhere.But, if you don't join the HP Amazon program, do you know that those 2 Amazon text links are not extra ones? If you use 2 amazon links, then you have used up your quota of 2 personal...

We just made a small update to the site. The biggest change is the addition of the broken link report. It will show you broken links in your text and link capsules.We'll be trying to test all links about once a week, and re-test broken links every 24 hours or so. A link could be...
