I got a very long email today from Amazon outlining changes to Amazon TOS for Europe - I am sure it will not be long before Amazon.com issues something similar so I wanted to ask the following before it happens!
What would this mean for us here on Hubpages - I have pasted the exact wording below - it seems they are saying it is against TOS to format links with our Associate tag and use them on a site we do not own? So, if I create a text link to Amazon UK from one of my hubs, is this now going to be a violation - and following on from this, if they do the same for Amazon.com what are the implications?

I would check with HP to be safe but it probably means any 'Contents' related to Amazon or anything which they sell.

So I've worked on my novel for the past 3 years, finally buckled down and finished it this year. Just recently published it on Amazon Kindle, and I'm so very excited about it. The thing is, I don't know how to promote myself in the best way. And I don't have a ton of $$$ to spend on website design...

I'm really interested in what makes my "best hubs" the "best." Some of them are pretty low as...far as a traffic count goes, but I'd imagine that those have more unique content. I'm positive that traffic and hubscore are mutually exclusive, and that comments have...

I think it would be so good if we can add the zazzle products to our hubs via Zazzle Capsule just like We do it for Amazon. It will help us improve traffic and of course earnings.

Everything after the first post on my travel articles is flagged as duplicate. I have the same structure on each one and since they're travel posts primarily in the UK they will have a lot of the same words. Please evaluate and let me know how to fix this without destroying the series.Thank you.
