    I am new to Hubpages but I have a great Following on my Bubblews page. I want to know if i post links of my featured hubs on my Bubblews articles, would it result in violations?

      I would definitely NOT link any Hubs to Bubblews!   Why risk not being paid because you broke a rule.  Read Bubblews TOS.   I write there and I can tell you they are sticklers for their rules.

    I wouldn't.

    I believe bubblews frowns on links to other sites, except for youtube. They might let it slide, but why chance it.

      ya may be you are correct as their rules are not explained properly anything can be a risk

    No. They won't pay you

    Yes you can add the link with prescribed 400 characters.

        I have tried it. It is not a violation.

          I've done the same and posted a link.The rules state(d) you may use a link to ENHANCE the
          satisfaction of the reader but you may NOT use a link just to enhance your
          own traffic to that link/blog.

          If you're writing about fishing and have several RELEVANT fishing articles,
          have at it. But if you simply say, "You might also like this article: How to eat
          Neatly without Using a Napkin," I wouldn't.

          Don't post more than one link per bubble, though.

          I don't write there anymore due to their payment issues but you can sure
          write a post about it for feedback. Maybe weave your question into a bubble
          about posting ethics and 'how much is too much' as far as spam.

          I don't think you should be so confident.   Bubblews is inconsistent, a lot depends on which member of their team looks at your Bubbles.   As you can see from this thread, other Hubbers have lost their payouts because of HubPages links.  It's not worth the risk.

    Not sure but I guess that would not be worth it. It probably won't convert well to visits anyway. And it's also a risk.

    I would not do it. I lost two accounts there after I did it. So beware.

    I look at it this way. What would I want people to do if I owned BL?

    Would I want readers going to other sites with ads and affiliate links or staying on my site reading ads that fund my business?

    How about from the writer's side (yes, I write there)?

    Would I want readers going to other sites with ads and affiliate links or staying on my site reading ads that fund my business?

    Any link that detracts from keeping eyeballs on the site should be avoided if you want the site to be successful long term (yes, I think it can).
