Planning to write a few pages with very informative and useful content for users but with slight promotion of my main website which will expressed in singe link at the bottom or something of that kind.
Have read the rules but did not find anything on that matter.
Thanks in advance!
There are some definite guidelines and rules regarding promotional Hubs and links, so I suggest you go back and read them again, as it would seem you've missed all of those sections.
A lot of people seem to use their hubs and profile page to promote their blogs. They usually do so in a tasteful way, I have even felt encourage to go have a look. The problem comes when you use hubpages (or other web sites really) to promote yourself by generating spam. If you write an article about a topic you also blog on or have a website for and your article here is just spam, I for one will not be clicking through and it will end up being flagged as spam.
I click a link in someone's article because the content of the article was so amazingly awesome that I want to go check out what their link is going to teach me or whatever. An article is a good one because it gives what it promises, from help using rss to tips on finding good keywords or a pleasant and pleasurable read.
A self promotion link here or there is no big deal. When the sole purpose for an article is its links, thats spam as it offers nothing of value in itself, remove the links and you are left with nothing of value. If you use more then one link to your site that looks like spam, surly I do not need multiple links to be able to check it out if I am interested. If you have lots of links to different sites (one each but loads of different sites) I think it makes it look like that article isn't really about anything and is just to advertise all those sites. Filters in google and even hubpages filters will flag that volume of outside links as spam so make sure you can defend your article if it gets flagged or be very sparing about the links you give in an article.

My Take on Hub Pages. It's alright for them to take our content and just add whatever type of adds they want. Why? Because when someone reads ""our content"" and clicks on one of these...

With the growing number of Hubbers that have published or self-published a book, an e-book, or other literary works, why not give them a self-promotion forum. Allow them to post relevant links there, for the benefit of...

Is there a way to include a hyperlink to another website without transfering the user away from Hubpages? In other words, is there a way to force a new window so that the original page is still present?
