I just signed up with Commission Junction for my other websites, and was wondering what the policy is for using affiliate links and stuff in our articles. Amazon is not a huge earner I have found (here and elsewhere) so I'd like to see what other avenues I can use.
I am talking about a couple of related links and/or a graphic. Nothing spammy.
Yes you can, but it may impact on your HubScore (especially if a large percentage of your links are affiliate links). See my post in this thread for some detail.
Great, thanks for the quick response. I don't expect affiliate links to be a big part of any of my hubs. Just nice to have the option, especially if I am already writing about a product and offering up a link so that people can buy it. Might as well earn a few pennies instead of nothing.

Did hubpages change their linking policy or something? Because this morning my account is showing 50 hubs with violations for linking to prohibited sites. Are affiliates links such as Commission Junction, ShareaSale and Google affiliate no longer allowed? I am at a complete loss...
