I am new to Hub Pages and I had my third Hub flagged and suspended for an inappropriate link - I linked directly to the Mail Chimp subscription page for my Blog (oops). I see that is a no-no and understand why - it's a little spammy.
My question is this:
"on my other two published hubs I added and link at the bottom 'Check out my Blog" that links to my latest post. Every page on my blog has a subscription form in the side bar menu. Does this put me in trouble with HP guidelines?"
It seems like a grey area. I don't want any more trouble - it's alot of work to publish a Hub and then have it stuck in review.
Every link should be directly related to the Hub content and not purely promotional.

Okay - thanks for that. One of the reasons I write for hubpages is to increase my overall readership and drive traffic to my writers blog. That must be common.
But, I guess readers can find more about us from our HP pages - the equivalent to a resource block on a guest post.
Thanks for the feedback.
HubPages wants writers who write Hubs for their own sake, not purely to promote other sites - that's why the rules exist.
However, I use Hubs to promote my blogs and have no problems. The secret is to write Hubs which are directly related to the content of your blog.
Thanks for the clarification - now I know. My primary goal is to provide quality content for hubpages - I just need to learn how to add the links to my blog without sacrificing content quality. I'll check out your hubs and see how you do it.

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?
