Q&A: Are URL links allowed in answers? You find a question and instead of answering the question you provide a link to a hub you posted six months ago. I have a feeling if this is allowed then everybody will start doing it and we shall end up with Q&A as a platform for advertising our hubs. All you need is to have two accounts - one for asking questions and the other for providing URL to your hubs. What do you think?
I would imagine it would be allowed if the question was already answered in the form of a hub.
You may include links to relevant resources in short answers, but affiliate links are strictly prohibited. Short answers containing links to unrelated Hubs or other sites that are irrelevant to the question at hand may be entirely removed by an admin.
Which means: Short answers containing links to related Hubs are allowed.
If that is the case, then Q&A is likely to become a good tool that is very popular with hubbers.

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.
