I have searched the FAQ and other forum posts, but haven't found an answer, so I am hoping someone can help me, please.
I have had two of my hubs, which were previously published and featured, flagged as overly promotional because apparently I have linked to my own domain (my website) more than twice (I haven't.) I haven't made any changes since they were published.
I replied to the moderator who said that it is because I am linking to my website more than twice, but I am not. Each of the hubs links twice only to the single domain. I emailed back for clarification with this message:
I can't see where my hub links to *my website* twice. It links on the first picture and then again on the picture that you have detailed above, but that's it. Can you point out to me where else it links? Thanks
This is the response from the moderator...
The first link is on the first picture, as you've stated. The second link is under the photo that I described in the previous message ("Source: FREE Apps for my Readers").
I am now confused as this confirms that I have only linked twice to the single domain, so how can it be overly promotional?
Please can someone kindly take a look at my hubs that have been flagged and see where I have gone wrong? I can't work it out.

Thank you in advance and I hope that made sense!
Sorry, I am so stupid! You won't be able to view my hubs because they are unpublished! Doh!
Anyway, I hope you got the idea. I just need to know if there's another rule I don't know about, which means I can't link to my own website twice within my hub.
I think the banner promoting your home pages might just be seen as too self-promotional?
I may have had a similar problem. When you edit the photos, are there similar names (etc.) in both the Source URL line and the Name of source line? If so, delete the information in the Source URL line. Is the problem gone?
Thanks everyone for your replies. The problem was that although I only have two links to the one domain, the photo of one of the links also had my domain name on it.

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?

I am really ticked about this. I posted a hub about a revolutionary new site out there that will change how we social network and I linked to a page, not from that site but an info website of mine so people could get more info and I was flagged for being over promotional! This is news, not...

I understand that too many outbound links can mark a hub as 'overly promotional."I am wondering if there is a work-around, since I am considering a hub about various resources that people might be looking for, and that would mean that the entire article would consist primarily of outbound...

I'm pretty new to HubPages (joined 6 weeks ago but got "busy" about 2 weeks ago posting Hubs) -- I got spanked last week and had a hub taken down temporarily for citing direct links to the particular information relating to multiple parties (all of which linked to SEC.gov, but different...
