Posting comment with HubPages affiliate link in comments

    I just came across a Hubber who posts a comment on their own hubs with just a link to that hub. That link includes a HubPages affiliate code in it. Is this allowed and if so, what are the benefits of doing it?

    Why would you do it in the comments and not in the article itself? Is in in the hope of tricking people to click on it and to earn more?

    Sound like an attemtp to evade TOS limits on links.  Probably not a good idea.

      I have flagged the profile and I'll let HubPages handle it.

      There's no limit on hubpages.com links.

        But this is a bit shady practice, isn't it? I know it is to hubpages.com but still.

          I'm unsure the quality of the hub or the hubber of which you speak. I'm merely commenting on there being no limit to internal hubpages.com links.
