I am planning to build a Hub Page that will be home for a Internet Radio Station. I know that you can have a link to access a video file, but what I really need is to just access a sound file, or maybe have the download available on the page.
I could put the sound file on a video with related graphics, but we are recording radio shows in full stereo so I would like to have that option.
Any help, Thanx greatly
Linking to audio files is not wrong in and of itself, as long as you do not exceed the two links to any single domain permitted under the TOS.
On the other hand, I do not think that HubPages is a suitable home for an internet radio station. It sounds too much like a landing page, which could likely be seen as "overly promotional" in violation of the TOS.
TheWriteMan, I agree with WE that HubPages is not the best place for what you're thinking of doing.
Not only are you only allowed two links to the same domain on any hub, but repeatedly linking to the same domain across different hubs will also get you in hot water with HP.
Have you considered using WordPress or something similar? WP is free and you won't run across the limitations that you will here.
My knowledge of Internet radio stations is minimal, so perhaps someone else has better suggestions. I would bet there are other sites out there that house and promote Internet radio shows, but I could be wrong.
Thanx for the info.
I also have Yahoo Site builder and I am sifting through the instructions on the software. A lot of functions for software is not that well explained, so time consuming to be sure before going that direction.
What is "TOS"?
There are sites that host streaming audio, but they are pretty horrible page layouts, about 80% ads of every sort, and one small space for your Radio Station.
The main linking question is that you would have to be able to "Start" or "Play" the audio file, and how to set that up.
Best of luck with your Hubs!
As far as starting playback, what can be done is to create a simple link to the audio file. HubPages does not allow you to insert interactive HTML code and the like. You may want to consider setting up a blog, which offers greater flexibility.

I'm new to this whole Hubbing gig and I'm curious about how one avoids having articles being rejected for being spammy? The article I submitted was an interview with a musician and the only thing that I can think is...

I noticed that when I checked my backlinks all of the ones from hubpages were 'nofollow' links. Should this be the case? (I've written several articles and I'd hate not to be getting the most out of them.) Or do I need...

Now, not before, when you place a link, you have a choice to click rel=nofollow so that search engines ignore it. So in future hubs that you write or if you want to go back and edit, do not check this box for links to...
