OK, so I used my own affiliate ID. The link only appeared twice, yet it says it is overly promotional. The hub contains two links to my amazon link and one link to my squidoo lens. What gives?
You've got three links that are promotional, because the squidoo lense is also yours and "self serving". You need to remove one of the links so that in total there are only two.
Nice hub btw!
Okay. I tweaked it already, but it still says the same thing. O_O
Hmm, well here's the FAQ: http://hubpages.com/faq/#overly_promotional
I wonder if you have links to the same website on your other hubs? That may be the trigger.
Yes, but I was promoting another product. It says per hub, not per account...
My hub was flagged now. Didn't even give me a chance to find out what the problem was.
EDIT: I e-mailed support. I am really in the dark here. Maybe a bug? I dunno.
If you put the Amazon links into capsules, you won't get the flag.
Linking to the same domain across multiple Hubs won't trigger flags, as far as I know, but it will lower your HubScores if you do it too much.

Someone recently stated that there are limits to how much you can link to your own hubs. Does anybody know the limitations?
