Using HubPages To Advertise Your Business

    I want to know can a person write an article about their business and link that article to their personal website? I saw a person do this and it looked more like an ad instead of an article. Is this permitted on HubPages?

      ... Its a very very fine line and one that's very difficult to pull off.

      No, hubs aren't for promoting other businesses.
      Yes, hubs can be linked to your other sites.

      You risk the possibility of 1. Having your hub being flagged and possibly unpublished for being over-promotional and 2. It is very difficult to pass QAP with what is essentially an advertisement. It has substance issues.  Substance is weighed more heavily than organization and grammar. 

      So basically, if you are planning on linking from your hubs to your business, you need to write a quality, informative hub that relates to the same thing as your business field, without being about your particular business, and find a way to link it that it isn't an obvious promotion.

      Good luck.
