    Hubs that are purely promotional are considered part of the reasons that Hubs get unpublished under the "overly promotional" designation.  You'd do better to write something that was a guide to an area that linked to a variety of local businesses or which reviewed the qualities of several local businesses which provide similar services.

      Actually I was wanting to write a hub about roof replacement and repair, and then recommend a local contractor. Not really purely promotional.

    Provided the hub covers more territory than just the local business I reckon it's okay. It is also a question of how local is the local business. A service station that does great detail work on Fords and is situated in Ontario, Canada wouldn't be of much interest to someone living in Sydney, Australia. A cake shop that makes really great pies in Bulli on the south coast of NSW, Australia probably wouldn't be of much use to someone living in Queens, New York, USA.
