When I publish a hub this question is asked. I always untick the box as my postings are all just hints, tips and opinions or advice and information. However, can you please link me directly to the definition and explanation of this term so I am aware of its implications.
When I write for the hub, my content is written live, a brain dump. It's unique and fresh. However, it sometimes contains links to sites (not mine). So, also, what are the rules/best ways of linking to your own site/s?
Thanking you in anticipation.

What does commercial mean?
Commercial hubs are required to have an ad level setting of High. Your hub is considered to be commercial if it meets any of these conditions.
* it is monetized through a non-hubpages affiliate mechanism
* it contains links to other commercial sites
* it promotes a for profit business, especially a business that you have an interest in
Hope this helps you
I think this previous thread on the subject should answer your questions. This link, along with others that answer frequently-asked questions, can be found at the pink sticky thread at the top of this forum.

I've always wondered this. Can anyone shed any light on what ticking or rather un-ticking that little box does, please.
