"Overly Promotional" Danger! What to do?

    I recently wrote a hub: 25 Must have WordPress Plugins.

    The problem is that it is in danger of being flagged "Overly Promotional". Now, I have 25+ links to a single domain( wordpress.org ) because well, the plugins are there and I need to link to them.

    My questions: Can this hub be flagged? Who flags hub? Is there any way to not get flagged?

      1) yes
      2) anyone who sees it and chooses to report it
      3) yes, don't break the linking rules

      Write hubpages an email. They might decide its legit. The robot will flag your page but robots can be overidden.

    Hi Ishan smile welcome to HubPages. You are allowed only two links to the same domain, check the FAQ. Maybe just use one active primary link and make a list in normal italics text. hmm just a thought.

    Or every topic does not lend itself to a hub. Hubpages is protecting it's page rank and status by limiting outward bound links.
