Why Was My Post Not Approved?

If you’re reading this, you probably found one of your posts in Not Approved status, and are wondering why our Moderator did not approve it for publication. The most common reasons are:

  1. Off-topic content not relevant to our community. Posts should be relevant to business managers interested in customer-related issues. Learn more about our topics.
  2. Excessive promotional content.
    Posts should be educational, not designed to promote other content, generate leads, or market companies or solutions.
  3. SEO backlinks.
    Hyperlinking keywords and phrases to other sites to manipulate search engines is not permitted. This is a form of spam that violates Google webmaster guidelines.
  4. Too short or lacking in educational information.
    We generally don’t publish short posts (<500 words) with basic information that has already been covered extensively on the site.
  5. Content written by someone else.
    Republishing is allowed, provided that author wrote the original content and it was published under author’s byline elsewhere.
