    I created two good hubs with high scores that have just been deemed to contain links to prohibeted sites.

    With HUGE dissappointment it seems the links in question point to two of my sites. These sites are super relevant to readers and do contain tons of free content plus some links to amazon and so on. These sites are high on Google, why cant I kink to them?

    what is wrong with my sites that they are prohibited?

    the sites are :

    <snipped links>

    someone please help me understand this absolute nonsense!

      Possible reasons are spelled out clearly in the site FAQ,


      If you'd linked too many times the Hub would have been marked "overly-promotional."

    How many times did you link? You are only allowed a max of two self promotional links in any article.. otherwise ask HP why....

    Maybe the popup won't get out of your way add that I saw on the one that I opened!! Hate those, automatically back arrow when I get those!!!!

    As mentioned above, you probably linked to them too many times.

        You have not given us the site to check out or told us how many links that you put to it. Did you put up 8 links to it? Actually they may not allow you to put up a link to your site on this since it is self promotion.

    Could you post the message?

    The most likely issue is more than two links to the same url.

    But it is possible there is a problem with linking to the site at all.  You would probably have to take that up with hubstaff.

    Could it be that your landing pages contain pop-ups that interfere with navigation? That is spelled out as against the linking policy of Hubpages (see relache's response), not to mention the fact that no one appreciates visiting sites like that.

    You may not sell E-books either from your website.
    I removed all advertising from my website in order to comply with Hubpages strict regulations.
