      It will get reviewed shortly by a moderator and get published. Unfortunately, the topic area of "belly fat" has been plagued by spammers, so our moderation team wants to make sure it's not that sort of spam. Since your Hub is not and is high-quality, it should be published soon. smile

        Jason - can you clear something up before i flag! I thought any amazon ads had to be relevant to the article - while I think the article is excellent, it is selling watches and Kindles - is that acceptable?

        Sorry to bring this up in an open forum but I felt it was better doing this than flagging for moderation after it had already been moderated!

          This is a good question. One I've had too, so hoping you get a clarifying response smile

          Good question. The Amazon items should be relevant to the topic of the Hub (they'll also perform much better if they are). Amazon (or eBay) items that are not relevant to the Hub topic do run the risk of being moderated.

            This is clarifying for me, Jason, thanks!

            Thank you Jason Menayan,
            I always thought that amazon add should not be relevant to the topic!
            Are sport swatches relevant to belly fat or not ? smile

          Hi SimeyC, the reason why I put those swatches and kindles, because I didn't find  anything relevant to my article.
          I am anti-supplementation, so i cannot put vitamins or proteins.
          I cannot put alcohol adds.
          I don't believe in any modern diet, so I cannot put their books.
          I think that anything sold as a  relevant aid to sports in either a scam, or a phony theory.

            There are a couple of books you might want to add:
            Beer: Health and Nutrition
            Alcohol (Health and Medical Issues Today)
            Alcohol and Human Health (Introducing Health Sciences: a Case Study Approach)

              These are good suggestions, and clearly relevant to the Hub's topic.

              You can also leave out Amazon ads - they're not always appropriate for a Hub.

    Thank for your replay :-)
    I am sorry, I didn't know that amazon adds on my  hub are illegal.
    Should I remove them?

      austere125rivers - don't do that yet - just wait for clarification! Didn't mean to pick on you!!! You can have ads - but you probably could find more relevant Amazon items - books about Hops etc - and probably would get more sales too!

    maybe exercise equipment or clothing?  Running shoes maybe?

      SimeyCposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      This is another good idea - there are some of us who will never give up our hops - so you could include a section explaining what you can do to combat the effects of Hops and then include exersize equipment etc.!

        I never write to include adds believe me, I am on a crusade against scams  in health field. Writing a topic just to ad adds is not my cup of tea.
        I will write a lot of article that debunk those exercise equipments. But I have to learn how moderation works here, I don't want to offend anybody.
        Thank you SimeyC for your suggestions :-)

      For the "belly fat" one (currently unpublished), then yes. smile

      They didn't accept running swatches how can they accept running shoes. smile
      Or clothing?
