Denial due to links in the article - When there are no links... Help!

So I am getting denied due to multiple links within the body that promote other sites or lead the reader to go to another site. As well as a call to action.

I literally have zero links, nothing, nada, zilch.

I could argue the call to action, because I believe it's just facts I'm handing out with a subtle "you should do this". So maybe I could reword that part but the rest I have no idea how to change anything when there are no links in the article.

If you are saying "search on the web" or "go look this up" or anything like that, that can be construed as a link. A link doesn't have to be active for it to count as a link (in other words, it doesn't have to be clickable).

Or, if you use the full name of another website in the text, such as Amazon.com vs. merely Amazon for example, the former is considered a link.

If you have no links, focus on the "or lead the reader to go to another site" part.

You can't even say to google something as a suggestion. I had the same issue when I first joined.

Are you inserting images that are hosted elsewhere?  That can create aa bunch of "hidden" links.

Seems awkward. Maybe its just a mistake and it will be accepted when you resend it
