OK, I GET THAT...But I am an INDEPENDENT K & B Designer. Am I allowed to plug my availability and services in the last sentence of a hub?...with an outside Email contact ?? Or will I "go straight to Hubs jail"
To be on the safe side, I'd avoid doing so.

I hope that helps!
Simone, I'm glad you posted here because I've been looking for two answers that I can't find in the learning center, TOS, FAQ, or Help.
The first question: is it overly self-promotional to include a byline on all of my hubs plugging my own published works (i.e., "by John Doe, author of 'Memorable Names'")?
The second question: is it bad form to contact (through comments) the author of hubs related to my published book to ask them if they would like to include an Amazon ad for it?

There is a simple solution to all of this, and I've used it. If you've read the links in Simone's post, and are still not sure, then email your idea to email@example.com. Tell them what you want to do, including planned text and the target site you are linking to. They'll tell you if its okay, and no penalty if they warn you off and you don't do it. I've always gotten a reply in 72 hours, often sooner.

I noticed that when I checked my backlinks all of the ones from hubpages were 'nofollow' links. Should this be the case? (I've written several articles and I'd hate not to be getting the most out of them.) Or do I need to change something in the HTML coding linking the anchor text to my website? If...
