I was sent an email that my hub was designated as spam because it contained links to only one site. Actually it contained links to 5-6 different sites and resources.
The really ironic thing is when you try to access my hub it says it has been unpublished and recommends other hubs to view. THREE of them contain links to ONLY ONE SITE and are without a doubt spam.
We are in the process of reviewing all the Hubs in the system (over 35,000 at last count), so only a minority of Hubs have been reviewed so far. Rest assured that spammy Hubs will get flagged as spam eventually, and the Hubbers who created them will, like you, have an opportunity to fix them.
If there are more than 2 links to any one site, that can trigger the spam flag. Likewise, "hiding" links using tinyurl, hops, locatereviews or the like can also trigger the spam flag.

Usually the first thing I do when I log on here is to check out the 'New' hubs to see what's going on. I also usually end up flagging spammy hubs along the way. The thing is that the spammers seem to be following...

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?
