I for one am also disapointed with the new rule that does not allow affiliate links from clickbank. A reputable company that tests out products and ebooks before they can be marketed. How much safer can you get when clickbank offers a 60 day money back guarantee.
This new change on affiliate links really is making me reconsider my efforts and perhaps I will take them elsewhere to places that offer more benefits to the authors. Authors should be the number one priority as they are the backbone of this site.
I only hope that enough hubbers will make that fact known so that they can reverse their position on affiliate links. I have over 200 hubs on hubpages and the recent change has been truly discouraging.
Better yet, what if they changed the rule in a way that is very similar to ebay and amazon. One affiliate link for every 200 words or so? I think thats reasonable, and they will be more likely to keep hubbers that have contributed hundreds of hubs to hubpages.
