    Hi guys, I've written a great Hub on how to choose an online poker room. I have not included any links or affiliate capsules. It is 100% informative and not promotional at all. It doesn't mention any online poker rooms either.

    Is it okay to post a Hub like this?

    Cheers and thanks in advance for your help.

    smile

    Happy Hubbing!

    Rob

      Nevermind, I've checked Google Adsense guidelines and there's simply no way you can post anything gambling-related.

        I've deleted the Hub. Although, I still maintain that it's a great article. I'll go publish it on my blog which has google ads turned off so I can write about all that stuff that isn't "family friendly" :p Sheesh, Google is a bit Draconian in this sense. I really don't write anything that risqué.

        Anyway, back to the grindstone. smile Have a fantastic week everyone.

          Don't worry about your loss of Google Adsense, there are many other advertising techniques you can use.

          Specifically with gambling it would be more benefitial to add affilaite links to gambling sites than use cpc adverts.

            Yeah, thanks, I do use other affiliates on my blog. Google is far too restrictive in terms of my writing. I write quite a bit on sex and relationships for example and I'm an avid poker player. I used to head up BLUFF Magazine South Africa, so yeah, there's a ton of poker content I have but can't post on any Adsense affiliated sites.

    I posted a hub about slot machines and a second hub about scratch card game, and I had to remove it becuase they are gambling related. Alothough I see many hubs promoting online casinos, poker roome, bingo here and they are allowed. Why?

      I read your hub about scratch games; it was pretty good, but I was also wondering about how you could put that on HubPages. 250,000 pounds as a lump sum or 1,000,000 over 15 years, something like that.

      Other hubs may not be OK, perhaps they just haven't been flagged yet - take a look at the FAQ about gambling.
