I just published a hub, and it has a warning that it may be overly-promotional because it links to the same site 3 or more times.
The only site I am linking to more than once is PhotoBucket. I used some photos and am trying to credit the artists. If this is it, how do I credit the people who took the picture?
My hub is at: http://hubpages.com/hub/Government-By-T … The-People
If you do not mind, could you check it out and tell me what to do?
Thanks in advance!
yes links from photos are also counted. take photos from different sources.
Thank you. I find it odd that I can't link to the source, even when each photo is by a different person. I don't like the idea of not posting the source...
You absolutely can link to the source - just don't make it a live link. If you're using the photo capsule, put the link in the "caption" section or something that will not make it a live hyperlink.
And frankly, it doesn't have to be a link. Quite frequently I will refer to a photo as Flickr/Photog's name.
I have not run into this (I use almost all my own photos) but my understanding is that URL's in the photo credits count as links, which of course they are.
Can you give credit without using a link? Perhaps just the artist's name? I believe that would solve the problem.
I believe it said something about "big" sites (like wikipedia) don't count against you as being overly promotional links. Photo bucket is probably a big site in this case, but the software that checks it may not know that, so it passes it on to a human to verify where the links are going.

Someone recently stated that there are limits to how much you can link to your own hubs. Does anybody know the limitations?

I had a Hub published about two years ago. The score on it was 83 and it received fairly good traffic. I recently edited it to add some additional info and a website for that info. That made two...

I've just gone through quite a few 'latest hubs' and as I do I notice there are things slipping through that simply shouldn't. I suggest that as part of the design process there are some checks and balances that would...

Can someone please explain this to me, as this hub was on HubPages for YEARS and saw a ton of traffic, but then I took it down... and only recently decided to bring it back, because I remember how helpful it was and how...
