I logged on yesterday morning to discover that all of the hubs on my account have been unpublished. Last night, my partner gets the same thing on his account. Yesterday, I make the necessary corrections to a Hub, going by what the mods say to do at the top of my page, and after I resubmit it they reject it and label it as substandard. I've been doing this for years and now my account gets destroyed and I lose over 500 Hubs. What the hell is going on?
I don't know but we need to find out ASAP. It could happen across the hubbing board for some reason.
Yeah we do... between my partner and I, we had 800-1000 Hubs created and now they are all worthless.
This is alarming. I am just starting, i dont want my future efforts be wasted. Please update us.
Often automatic content filters don't pick up issues - it takes someone flagging a hub or two before a manual review is done. If the team finds that more than a few of your hubs have the same issue, they will often unpublish ALL your hubs.
I think you need to reread some parts of the help section, starting with what substandard is:
Had a look at the hubs cache and I think they're quite short and not really "quality articles" - basically a couple of paragraphs about buying homes in a certain suburb, a video and map, plus a couple of links to real estate in that area.
I can see your hubs also breaking some of the over promotional rules: http://hubpages.com/faq/#overly_promotional

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...
