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