Here's the situation...
I'm busily creating a new hub under a new subdomain. The problem is the hub literally has dozens of .gov links, but naturally the new subdomain has a profile score of less than 85.
When I publish this hub, is HP really going to tell Google that this hub is infested with affiliate links, paid links, and links to untrusted content; when, in fact, each and every one of those links is to a .gov website?
I don't know what to do here...
I don't know...I don't consider the government trustworthy. Why should HP? Or Google??
If you have trouble publishing, just email team@hubpages and we'll manually review the Hub and clear any flags if it looks like the links are fine.
Do they end in .org or start with http://? They are usually the best ones to trust..
Another thing is that I believe that Google is able to see by itself the links without HP's help.
The important factor is whether the links are to a legitimate site and if there are too many links.
So what's happening, are you getting some kind of message from HP about it?
If not, then it's up to you how each link is classified - if you tick the box saying it's an affiliate link, paid link etc, or not.
Even if you tick the box, HP doesn't tell Google it's an untrusted link. It just makes the link no follow so that Google pretends it doesn't exist.
