    I was just hub hopping and found a hub with nothing, I mean nothing but one link... OMG can I post the link here for the staff to find?

      Really it has no text just one link to a promo site. 

      How do these hubs clear for publishing?

        I thought hubs were published automatically unless they fail to meet certain criteria (too many amazon/ebay ads per word being the main one). A hub like this will get flagged (faily quickly, I assume) and when a moderator sees it it will be unpublished.

        Good question! 

        If HubPages allows a hub with nothing but one link to be published then it seems like there is a flaw in the system.

        I realize it will be flagged quickly but every time a hub is flagged it creates another task for the busy moderators of this site.

        Just my two cents...

          Absolutely.  You're not the only person who's pointed this out either. 

          I can't understand why this basic step (of preventing the Publish button from working unless a hub has a minimum word count) has not been taken.

      Thanks for flagging the Hub.  Hubbers should get warnings now if their Hubs are too short and shouldn't be able to publish them.  I noticed the Hub is no longer published; you did your job perfectly!  Thanks again! big_smile

      DON'T put the link up here.  That Hub doesn't deserve attention, other than a flag to alert the moderators.

    Wow, I've never seen that before. Crappy writing, yes. Short and full of links, yes. But never just a single, solitary link. That's pretty bad...

    That's bad-- but I saw one today that was copied  word-for-word from the HubPages learning center.

      Yikes...but kind of have to laugh at the level of stupidity they must have to do that.

        Right. They even included a lc video. The text was a verbatim rendition of the video script. So flagged.

      Hi Rochelle,
      Was the author HubPages?  We are rolling our Learning Center entries out into Hubs instead of through WordPress, so it might have been legitimate!  The old Wordpress format should be down soon and the Hubs will be in their place.  We didn't want there to be a time when there was no Learning Center entries.  Thanks for being on the ball with your Flagging.  That's awesome!
      Kindest regards,
      Robin

        No, not HubPages-- some kind of "expert" I think, and it was very short.

      It needed a flag-- but it was not the one I saw.
