I have a huge number of hubs that have been flagged. As I am going through them, I make the necessary changes, but the warning of too many products remained.
Even on the Amazon capsules that have specific items I have changed the number of items displayed to match the number I have entered. On some hubs that has been ebough to get rid of the warning. But not on others. This hub: ht tp://hubpages.com/hub/Marcasite-Watches has 377 words, and 7 product listings and my A-Level maths says that is within the limit, but the warning remains.
Should I keep editing until I think I am within the ratio, then ignore the warning?
Or should not bother editing anything and accept that they will all be unpublished?
I have no objections at all to the new rules, I woud just like a fighting chance of complying with them.
I think if the warning persists, then by how HubPages is counting words, you are still in violation and risk having the Hub unpublished when that time comes.
' ... my A-Level maths says that is within the limit, but the warning remains.

I would write directly to HubPages in that case. You don't want to run the risk of the Hub being unpublished.
So are they counting words in a different way to the word count on hub metrics?
I've just done another half dozen hubs and they were fine, warning disappeared straight away.
I keep getting runs of hubs where nothing will make the warning go, then get another few that are easy to amend.
Spacey, I count 13 amazon products, requiring a minimum 650 word count. Did you miss the ones at the bottom, past the comment capsule (an amazon capsule with 6 products)?
If that isn't the problem, I wonder if the amazon links (not capsules) are being counted. I haven't heard anything about that, but I suppose HP might count that as a product.
Yep - didn't see those ones. I will go back and check the other hubs I have had problems with too.
Do you have any Amazon capsules set to "Do Not Display?" I know there was a bug a few days ago where they were still being counted.
OK - I give up and I am going to bed. Most of the time it seems to be fine but sometimes the warning sticks, then when I go in and change every capsule to show 1 item, when I have put in the item code of 1 product, the warning goes but that is going to take me forever - it will definitely require more patience and coffee.

First off, my hubs are transferred from Squidoo, and I am aware of various issues there. I'd already checked and edited hubs after the transition, so this is all post transfer.What I don't understand is why some of my hubs get unfeatured after I've edited them? One even got...

Published a hub on Oklahoma (please don’t get started on how it might be too generic – I had fun doing it). It became the template for my following hubs on Arizona and New Mexico. The Oklahoma one published just fine. The Arizona and New Mexico ones are now Not Featured due to...

Why is it that excessive links to Amazon products seem to be permitted when they are added to the body of hub rather than as a Module on the side? In my naivety, I did not realise that this was permitted. Will these links survive when hubs are selected and moved to the niche sites?
