OK, I GET THAT...But I am an INDEPENDENT K & B Designer. Am I allowed to plug my availability and services in the last sentence of a hub?...with an outside Email contact ?? Or will I "go straight to Hubs jail"

I hope that helps!
Simone, I'm glad you posted here because I've been looking for two answers that I can't find in the learning center, TOS, FAQ, or Help.
The first question: is it overly self-promotional to include a byline on all of my hubs plugging my own published works (i.e., "by John Doe, author of 'Memorable Names'")?
The second question: is it bad form to contact (through comments) the author of hubs related to my published book to ask them if they would like to include an Amazon ad for it?

The second question: it is
I don't see any harm in that but Hub Pages may think otherwise and may punish you for this...
There is a simple solution to all of this, and I've used it. If you've read the links in Simone's post, and are still not sure, then email your idea to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell them what you want to do, including planned text and the target site you are linking to. They'll tell you if its okay, and no penalty if they warn you off and you don't do it. I've always gotten a reply in 72 hours, often sooner.

When answering questions in Hubpages, are we allowed to post links to Youtube videos. For that matter, it is correct to include links to other web pages or relevant hubs.
