I have just had a hub removed for being overtly promotional.
The problem is I had put together a non comercial web page that does something unique, there is nothing else like it out there and thought HubPages would be a good place to tell people about it as I think a lot of people would enjoy it. (By non commercial I mean no ads, no selling anywhere!)
I had two links within the text to the page and had three other links. One of those went to my main site which is on the same domain which meant that there were 3 links to a single domain which I believe could be the problem. And two others that went elsewhere.
There is very little else I can write for this hub as there really isnt anything else that does this, and I can't really provide any more links. I have removed one link to the site and one to my own site, what I want to know is have I done enough to comply or is there more to do, or can I have this hub at all?
The page was at http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Send-a-C … econd-Life
It looks ok now, and I've cleared it for re-publication.
Generally, having multiple links to the same site in a hub is a liable to get it flagged, especially if they are to the same URL. If you describe your service well and it is sufficiently interesting to the visitor, you shouldn't need more than 1 link to get people to try it.

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?
