I wanted to write a hub about marketing tips for self-publishers. I was going to name some people that I've recommended for marketing books, but I didn't know if it was considered promotional to name individual or company names. I don't have any interest in promoting anybody, just trying to be helpful and point people in some directions.
Hi Donna, actually recommending people is a way of promoting their products if someone purchase from them.
You can promote anything you like, but if you are going to put links in your hub, then you cannot put more than 2 links to any individual domain.
It isn't wrong to promote someone's product or recommending it either, but would be "overly promotional" if you put more than 2 links to their domain.
I would hope that you are using the techniques or the product yourself, so your hub would be a review "type" of hub.
I hope that helped.

I've heard that Google is going start giving less rank to sites with ads at the top of the fold. I have Google Adsense banner type ads just below the description of my page on my website. Do I need to remove these? I...
