REcently few of my hubs have been banned or I have been asked ot revise them because they were considered duplicate http://hubpages.com/hub/Jack3d-warning-bad-side-effects(that one i understand why, i did post my experience on other supplement review website, and right now it is impossible for me to remove find which website it was and even if i manage to identify the websites I have no way to erase my review form other websites!)
my other hub was considered overly promotional http://hubpages.com/hub/MUST-HAVE-MUSCL … UPPLEMENTS i have already made some modifications and it just got worst, now my hub is also judged substandard
A third one http://hubpages.com/hub/Conan-conan-o-b … s-are-out, is said to contain unreladed links or products.
Anyone could have a look and suggest me what to do?
Thanks in advance
Ive tried, but none of those hubs are accessible. Pages no longer exist. My guess is that until you make the changes to bring them up to standard, that they will only be visible to you.
Sorry I cant help with those - My experience is that you have to be very careful with the links you put onto your hubs. You cannot have more than 2 links to any one domain, and to be honest, if you have more than 2 outgoing links from a hub to any sites you are asking for trouble.
Keep outgoing links to 2 and you should be fine, unless they are to sites unrelated to the topic of the hub, or are affiliate links to banned affiliate programs. Check the t&C's for hubpages for details of which links are acceptable.
If you have material which has already been published elsewhere, you can't publish it here. There's no way around that. The only thing you can do is rewrite it in different words.
"Overly Promotional" means you have too many links to other websites. You can only have 2 links to the same website in a Hub.
If you have several Hubs, and most of them have links to the same website, that can also be classed as overly promotional.
Substandard may mean your Hub is too short - aim for at least 400 words. Note that you must also have 50 words for every Amazon product you display.
As mentioned, we cannot see the hub since it is unpublished. Do you have a cached link you can point to? They remain in SE for a while.
Here is the first one:
http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/s … google.com
http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/s … google.com
1) You need to reword your recommendations. Cut-and-paste will not work. Start over, review it from scratch. Packaging, ingredients (what's good and what's bad), price, etc. etc. Forget about the previous review.
2) Overly promo means you got too many links. Cut the spamming links. Remember, RSS is a link too.
3) No idea what are you trying to link to, so can't comment on that.
There can be more than two outgoing links, but they should be to sites such as Wikipedia, media, universities, etc. where the visitor can find more information on the topic, and the sites should not be merely of a commercial nature.
I have heard about this type of problem related with this forum before. Don't know actual cause..
Remove hubs that Hubpages do not like and go ahead. There are tons of topics you can write about, even forums bring lots of ideas up. No use cry over duplicate hubs, just delete them. If you like your topic, just write about later under different angle, so it does not sound like duplicated.
If your other hubs were similar to this one hxxp://hubpages.com/hub/Size-On-Gaspari-Nutrition-review, then I can see a lot of copied content within this hub. It is of a good length and I take it you wrote some but not all of it.

Wouldn't it be nice if some explanation about the hub came with the above mentioned notices. All you get is the general notice that you hub is overly promotional or substandard and it needs to be fixed. If it is re-submitted and is not fixed properly you could be banned from...

I'm pretty new to HubPages (joined 6 weeks ago but got "busy" about 2 weeks ago posting Hubs) -- I got spanked last week and had a hub taken down temporarily for citing direct links to the particular information relating to multiple parties (all of which linked to SEC.gov, but different...

I just had a hub called as "Overly Promotional". It's not a great Hub, but I can't see how it can possibly fit that description. It's here:http://hubpages.com/hub/super14It is about the Super 14 Rugby Competition and provides many links to sites with info about the teams involved -- links...

I understand that too many outbound links can mark a hub as 'overly promotional."I am wondering if there is a work-around, since I am considering a hub about various resources that people might be looking for, and that would mean that the entire article would consist primarily of outbound...
