I vaguely remember that wikipedia is ex tempted from the "max two links to the same domain rule" Can somebody here confirm that this is true, i.e. that I can put up more then two links to wikipedia in a hub? Thanks a bunch, SY
May I also add Google to your question. I had planned to ask this very question to make sure since I'm always linking to Wiki and Google.
I would be careful about this, I was going to use about ten Google links, however after advice I decided not to include these link to the Google site.
If you want to be safe then stick to two external links, otherwise, the worst that can happen is the Hub gets flagged, and you can then fix the links and resubmit it!
In the HP FAQ, the two-link rule comes under the section on overly-promotional hubs. The text then goes on to say:
"Please note that promotional links are links that you have any interest in promoting (your blog, your Website, affiliate offers, etc.). Links to well-known Web resources which you don't have any personal interest in (like Wikipedia, news sites, encyclopedias, open directories, etc.) are exempt from this limitation."
Ahh thanks for the info, I may have to update a few of my hubs!
Thanks a lot WriteAngled, sorry for being late in expressing my thanks, SY
Of course you can link to any self promotional hub to hub internally on hubpages!

Is it a good idea to have a link to a HubPage account included on a Wikipedia page? I understand there was some sort of problem between the sites. Please let me know what the situation is about this.

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

I just logged in and it shows every single one of my hubs highlighted in pink, to need review. The majority of these were well trafficked and featured hubs or editor's choice. Did something happen? I tried looking in...
