When adding a RSS feed way do i get this "Overly Promotional: This Hub excessively promotes another site" when i only have one link to a website?
HubPages does not allow RSS feeds that point to the same site as links within the body of the hub (ie text and link capsules). For more info, see http://hubpages.com/hub/Overly-Promotional
Well it would be nice if hubpages let people know the rules before submitting, the only time i could find them is after getting a warning.
The FAQ does do a nice job of letting people know what the rules are, too.
