    The hub below is flagged as having a broken link to Amazon.

    Thing is, I don't link to amazon and haven't for a while--and I can't see any amazon links in this hub.

    Any ideas? … ubpages-20

      It's the Arkansas link.  It goes to Amazon.

        Thank you! It must have been a cut/paste error.

    I have one hub that popped up with a broken link warning last night from an amazon ad.  I've done everything I can think of... deleted the module and created a new one, entered different keywords, relocated the ad... and it still comes up as a broken link.  This is the only hub this is occurring on but I can't figure out why?  Grrr...

    Something is seriously wrong with the broken links fuction, I had one hub which was reporting 2 broken Youtube videos..however, they are videos I uploasded to Youtube myself and I know they aren't broken..Its been saying it for a few days but when you press play on the videos they are fine. I deleted them just to get rid of the black triangle!

    Something weird is happening.  Another hub came up with the same broken link. I know this link was never meant to be to Amazon, it was to a research article on congenital defects in rabbits.  It strains credibility that I made the same error, linking to the same non-existent amazon page, on different days.  What on earth is causing this?
