wikipedia links

    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

      Would be interested in the answer, but I forgot about the two links rule and published a hub yesterday that has at least three links to wikipedia in my 'thanks to' section, and the hub is not penalised and has a reasnable score for a new hub.

    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."

      Thanks Write Angled!  I've heard about the two-links rule but never got around to looking in the FAQ smile

    Of course you can link to any self promotional hub to hub internally on hubpages!
