On some of my short poems I get a warning when I publish that states, "this Hub is at risk of being identified as Overly Promotional or Substandard.". I understand the substandard implication, but can anyone explain why HubPages would consider a short poem, overly promotional?
sort by best latest
The only thing I list on some of them is Amazon books. Could it be because I am listing 3?
Wayne, try adding a video and see what happens.
If they are all different books, I don't think so. I am an author and sometimes list my book twice in a hub and don't have a problem. But, I have gotten the "overly promotional" for using (1) the same link twice, and (2) a video with a watermark.
Thanks, Becky. I thought about that , but even poems without my art work show the same warning. i have noticed that it only shows up on the poems that are short, so I think that is why I'm getting it.
Wayne, the small word count would account for the latter half of the warning. Try adding an Amazon or Ebay module and see if it goes away.
