I want to thank everyone for the feedback on the issue with hubpages. To all of you who have commented on Facebook, IMfaceplate,and the entrepreneur forum, Thank You!
Many of the people who commented are not network marketers, but have had similar issues with getting hubs approved.
The general consensus has been, and I agree totally, that hubpages.com is a private company who is free to conduct business as they see fit within the confines of the law.
As private business owners ourselves, we are free to conduct our business as we see fit as well. This includes whether or not to use certain services, such as the one hubpages.com and squidoo.com provide.
They both do quite well in Google rankings, so it is hard to ditch them completely. On the other hand, if notwork marketing or MLM are included in your targeted keywords, then it will be hard to gain a great deal of value from using these sites. If you use more generic business terms, then you should be able to get past this barrier.
Thank you all for your patience while I vent on this issue.
