    I think I should leave hubpages. sad

      I'm sorry Saleheen. Maybe they feel that the hub is too dramatic or maybe they are unwilling to give you a chance because your grasp of the English language is not that fluent. Don't get discouraged by this. You are learning as you do this. I am learning too. You must understand that what sounds appropriate in your language might sound off in translation. This happens to me as well and it's the reason why I don't write all the time. I only publish whenever I am confident that the article is somewhat solid.
      The story is powerful, but it could have been told differently. You wouldn't know this because you don't live in an English speaking country, and are not fully familiar with the basics of a narrative style. Still, I remember when you first came to Hubpages and I've seen how much you've grown as a writer in a very short time. Take it as a challenge and grow from this. You can only get better! My recommendation is to read a lot of books in English. That's what I try to do too. I read about sixty books every year. If I can help you in anything, let me know.

    I understand you Klara but I don't understand HP anymore. After the recent update of Google all my hubs dramatically started to get a good number of traffic. My amazon sales were really impressive and my hubs were ranked for several good keywords. At a point my average hubscore reached 76. But one by one all my well earning hubs were unpublished and remained unpublished for several weeks. Believe me, there were no major mistakes that can make a hub substandard. My traffic and earnings both are gone now. I took some help from a native English speaker who is also a English teacher in U.S.A. She said that there were hardly anything to be complained with those hubs. Still she made some minor changes in my hubs but in vain. I didn't know what to do. Finally I changed some of the paragraphs with almost copied content and the hubs are now published but those are 100% genuine craps now. There are 100s of craps in hubpages by native speakers and I know those hubs will never get punished.

    What is the point of removing,
    Hubs with a hub score of 90+
    Hubs with good traffic, good sales, good earning,
    Hubs that ranked well with organic backlinks?

      Well, I just activated the HP adsense program today, so I might be hearing the same thing about my articles soon. Who knows, Saleheen! I know that a lot of people write garbage, but I don't know what's being done about that. If they are really going to get that picky about what should be published in HP, then they need to be fair and sweep all that doesn't meet their standards. There are many other places where you can publish your articles. I just hope you continue writing. smile

              I better go. I need to prepare dinner. Keep in touch.

    100s of quality hubbers have left HP and I am sure thousands are preparing to leave. Not a good sign.

    In most of the cases the moderation makes no sense at all. For example in my irrecoverable hub there were no unrelated links or products. There are hardly any spelling or grammatical mistake.

      I don't know what to say. Their response is very vague. If they are going to do something like this, then they should have someone contact you to tell you the reasons as they relate to your specific situation.

        Even after mailing them again and again they don't clarify what they are actually complaining for. In one of my hubs I changed only one sentence and the hub was republished. That was a 800+ word hub.

              Your hubs are overly promotional. You are writing about items you are selling for amazon (or other ads) so you can profit. At least that's how your hubs may appear. Also, some of your hubs are very short. Try adding a introduction,  central information related to hub topic and conclusion.

              Does that make sense?

              1. saleheensblog profile image58
                saleheensblogposted 7 years agoin reply to this

                No, it doesn't make any sense at all. Go, count the words.
                For the stated hub:
                ~I can place 15 amazon ads in a 751 word hub. 50:1.
                ~I didn't write about any item but I added few books in an amazon capsules that supports the content.
                ~Even after taking off all the ads the hub was unpublished.

                In general:
                ~It's not a crime to write product hub
                ~We are here to sell and earn
                ~50:1 is the permitted word to amazon ad ratio in hubpages

                  I still have lots of product hubs on other accounts which I cut down the Amazon products on but are mostly all about getting people to buy. And they've been republished.

                  Sorry to hear this happened to you, Saleheen. Seems it's a regular occurance around here nowadays.

    And now ads have been disabled in two of my hubs which are on breast cancer awareness. Earlier these hubs were manually reviewed and cleared. Now what again?? The problem they stated were the animated breast self exam images. I removed them and everything was fine then. But I see now there are at least a half dozen of hubs where the same images have been displayed and there are ads in those hubs as well. So, why are there no ads in my hubs? I didn't even edit a single word of those hubs. How ads get disable by automatic filter even after being cleared by moderators?

      They have a whole new bunch of moderators on the team and many of them aren't fully trained yet. Quite a few people have reported incorrect moderations.

      I wish I could advise you, Salheen!  I know you have improved your English since first joining here and it is much better than some American writers on the site. 

      Everyone is having to make changes in the way they now compose their hubs, some more than others.  I'm sorry for your frustration with it all, but many other sites are facing changes too.  I do admire you for being able to communicate so well in a second language.  I have problems enough doing so with my first!

      Good luck with whatever you decide to do, but don't be a stranger here on the forums!  smile

    Saleheen, some of my hubs are unpublished by the mods. I have tried removing Amazon capsules and resubmitting them but they still won't get approved.
    I don't think that I will want to write for HP anymore.
