I am so confused one of my math hubs was just unpublished for having unrelated ebay capsules. It was about triangles and how to find the missing angles in a triangle. I had two ebay capsules - one I used the keyword protractor and the other I used the word geometry. How are these unrelated?
Unless the products returned are extremely specific to the process or topic you are discussing, you'd do better to use Amazon and list hand-chosen items that relate directly to the subject matter of the Hub instead of taking your chances with a keyword search.
Of course, debating the actions of the admin team here is pretty moot, as we can't see the unpublished Hub nor are any of us empowered to make decisions as to what is and isn't a TOS violation. You'd likely do best to email the team directly and ask for clarification as to the subtlety with which they determine what is related.
I can't use Amazon because my state is one of the ones that doesn't allow us to be an associate. The items were all protractors in the first one which are directly related to measuring angles. The second produced some geometry textbooks which I guess could be unrelated to a geometry topic?
I removed them and just put a generic capsule in and it got tagged again - This is the first time I had a problem with any of my hubs
As I said previously, your best bet is to email the admin team and ask for some clarification.
Wow math is a awesome topic even if it scared me I agree with Marissa, it doesn't make sense why your Hub would get flagged for including math tools I recommend emailing to Maddie, she's awesome too

A lot of very good hubbers picked up and left Hubpages this spring and I thought they...

I thought I read the new rules about word count and Amazon links, etc. and I put in the time to fix every single hub that was on the list that HP emailed me. Apparently some hubs didn't make the list and now I'm getting about 2 emails a day telling me that a hub of mine was unpublished for...

I have a hub on Malwarebytes which is about anti-malware and antivirus. Yesterday, I went in and edited the hub on grammar and the insertion of one keyword that Google Keyword Tool suggested. I then clicked "done editing" and got the warning about "unrelated links or...

What is wrong with Hubpages?I published a hub a few months ago without any problem and now it has been removed from publication because of "unrelated links." There are no unrelated links but I removed my Amazon capsule and links to other hubs on the same subject and now they are saying...
