Overly Prmotional / commercial hub

    Although in couple of my hubs, I had embedded links going to my own previous hubs and there were no outbound or affiliate links in there, yet I couldn't publish it as 'non-commercial' hub. The software treated it as a commercial hub. I wonder if linking to one's own hubs makes a hub commercial.

    If you make multiple links to the same domain, then yes, it could be seen as commercial. I don't know if hubpages filters itself out of the scan, but if it doesn't then multiple references to different hubs could be seen as commercial as they are all on the same domain - hubpages.com

    Might I recommend a different strategy if this is the case ... mention the other hubs and allow the readers to know they can be found in your profile. smile

    The automatic alert may be wrong, you will need to contact HP admin by email.

      I would if it is instrumental in lowering my hub score. Does a commercial hub usually get a lower score?
