    Cags this is great Thank-you so much for taking the time to do this!
    Since you have taken such an active interest in this maybe you would like to co-author the Blog
    You could do a daily "In my opinion post" or anything that suits your fancy

      You're welcome Ohma. I'll have to think about your offer. It might come in handy at some time. But, just not presently. smile

      The rules say that we cannot SELF promote, but we can promote other people and/or their hubs? It's part of what goes into Authorscore. smile

        Thank you CAGSIL!

        Can I also post one of your article here -- the link I mean?

          I don't see why not, because you are NOT self-promoting your own hubs. You are promoting another hubbers hub. smile

    If my new hub or my blog is in any way violating Hubpage rules I really wish someone would just come out and say that. It is now and always has been my goal to help ALL the Hubbers that have been so friendly and helpful to me.
    I do not wish to break the hubpage rules so if I am doing something wrong I wish someone from the staff would let me know what it is.

      Your blog does not break any rules Ohma, but promoting it on forums does. smile

      I am not staff of course, but this is plain and simple. smile

      Take a look at how Dale approaches similar task smile

        I did not post the OP Casil did and he has no attachment to my Blog at all other than He likes the Idea.

        Also It was Dale that I was modeling after with his approval of course since he is the one that came up with the idea.

        Thanks Ohma

        P.S Dale Mazurek if it bothers you that I borrowed your Idea please say so an I will take it down!

        Dale Responds
        Heck no, it doesnt bother me at all.

        Hubpages is all about helping other hubbers.  In fact if you would like we could list each other links on each blog and allow double exposure.

        Kudos to you. 

        My tip to you is do keep updating the blog.  I try everyday and I never go more than 2 days and I am watching the numbers all go in the right direction.

        more and more links everyday and the alexa ranking is dropping each day.  Eventually I am predicting a great place for hubbers links.

        Cheers

        Dale

        let me know if you want to exchange links.

    Since Daniel was kind enough to post and compliment both of us, and not emailed me a link....I decided to pick one link myself.

    Reposting the self-promoting material of other hubbers as a way to circumvent the rule is not acceptable. If you would like to write a unique post about the merits of another user's hub and post the link, that would be acceptable. Please note: "Do not start threads for the sole purpose of promotion or posting links."

      Again sorry I should have removed the link myself. I was only trying to show Misha that I had already done as he suggested.

    Cags, The rules are the rules and we can't self promote on the threads it is written on the left every time we post a reply.
    It also says we are not to start threads for the sole purpose of promotion or posting links. My perception is that when we are having a discussion and would like to give an example or reference another hubbers writing we can then post a link. Don't get upset those are just the rules. smile



    Please note that forum posts that promote your own Hub will be deleted and may result in the closing of your HubPages account. Do not start threads for the sole purpose of promotion or posting links. Please use the Forums in the spirit of community! forum rules

        This forum thread was created with the sole purpose of promoting an outside link, as was the original Cagsil cited when creating this thread. Please review the forum TOS on the left of the submit field.

          Ok again as I said I had no intention of violating any Hubpage rules. Please close this thread and any others related to this subject.

    I for one think the whole rules on not posting your own hubs is kind of stupid. It seems to me that they would want people to look at our hubpages no matter where the traffic comes from. I am sure that the people who advertise on our hubs would appreciate it.

    Every time you post to the forums, someone might take an interest and look at your hubs anyways, so why not allow a link or two? It would help those who are not getting traffic, and further boost those that are. So I don't see the problem.

    If you are just posting links, with no subject, I can see that as spamming your site, but if your topic matches the link, why not allow it? They don't seem to have a problem with hubpage knowlege links, why not alllow others?

    It is just an opinion.

      I am with you on this one briman...In my opinion I think alloing your links be posted is a good thing. Not just for yu but for the ones who advertise on your hubs.

      And what about spamming that will be done from the excess of threads promoting each others or personal work indirectly/directly ? We have hubmob and hubnuggets,30day challenge and recommend another person's hub thread. Isn't that enough ? If each one of us starts to promote every single hub created then sure it'll be spamming spree.
