If you read the FAQ entry on over-promotion, you'll see that your chosen strategy of introducing the topic here and then trying to drive the reader to your other site for the explanation is one of your key problems. If you are just here to get backlinks, you'll just keep running headlong into a wall. You have to create original and complete articles on this site.
If HP allowed everyone to include links to their other sites, product or information - google/search engines would no longer consider articles here to be "good" content. The entire reputation of the site depends on insuring quality. Otherwise we are just another re-direct site (which most people skip through) and we all suffer. If you are here to provide good content, then do so. Otherwise you are better off posting in video game forums and social networking sites. I hope that was helpful.
I'm saying that if your goal is to promote your own website, it's allowed on those websites. You won't be penalized. If your site is a blog, you can also post to technorati when you update your blog. Those are all reputable sites with good rankings.
My Hub was moderated for being overly promotional; what does that mean? Purely promotional offers and Hubs designed only to promote other sites or businesses are not allowed. In particular, the following actions are likely to get your Hubs identified as overly promotional:
including more than 2 links to any one domain linking to the same domain in the body of the text AND in an RSS feed short "teasers" with links to "read more" at another site linking to sites/pages/Hubs that are unrelated to your Hub's topic including links to a page that contains largely the same content as your Hub Please note that promotional links are links that you have any interest in promoting (your blog, your Website, affiliate offers, etc.). Links to well-known Web resources which you don't have any personal interest in (like Wikipedia, news sites, encyclopedias, open directories, etc.) are exempt from this limitation.
Your account is going to stay moderated/in probation until you demonstrate a consistent pattern of making Hubs that comply with content and linking guidelines. Unfortunately a quick fix doesn't reverse account probation.
Curious: Do you have multiple accounts, because your profile shows 68 hubs. I took a lot of mine and moved them. I let what I have left sit til it goes idle then I take remove it. I have over 80 articles, new ones, that...
Yesterday I read a thread that pointed out an HP term pertaining to self promotion. At a quick read over it seemed to suggest that self promotion is banned here. Does this mean social media too or what does...
