    Did not check, but considering the number of hubbers religiously promoting their own hubs no matter what TOS says it wouldn't surprise me...

    The risk of getting the site banned is why I no longer submit my own articles to any such sites.  In fact, the most I ever do now is add a link to my hub on Jaiku.com (it's a bit like Twitter).

    I would say any site that is a content sharing site will not look favorably on over promotional content.

    Propeller did ban hubpages courtesy of spammy hubbers.

    The long and the short: Don't be a spammy over-promoter. Please. You ruin it for everyone here.

    Mixx hasn't blocked hubpages, but Proppeler has.

    Both of them are social bookmarking sites.

      They may have blocked your personal account.

        And if you're spamming it, rightly so

          LOL i am not spamming at all. Actually rarely i use to promote my hubs. Just if i think it can be good to promote them.

    What's the point of sharing to these other sites then?  I've only been blogging and hubbing for a few weeks so I only know enough to be dangerous.

    Thanks to LondonGirl, I actually understand *why* this stuff is spam. I didn't get it before, and it only took a gentle shove for me to get it. I'm using tagfoot right now but I'm not doing a lot of promoting. I'm bookmarking things that I want to be able to go back to later because, honestly, I am more organized on tagfoot than I am in my personal bookmarks.

    If we were all using the social bookmarking sites that way, sneaking in an occasional link to one of our hubs wouldn't be so much of a problem, would it? If we all were only to promote the really great ones that we want to share, for example. Aren't most of these sites nofollow anyway?

    Digg, Mixx and tagfoot are all "do-follow". There are some hubbers who are shocking on Digg, major spammers.

    Not a problem at all.  The problem arises when people only submit their stuff.  The sites get mad when nothing else is offered.

    So submit your stuff and check out some of the other stuff on the site.  And submit other things as well, like videos or news stories. 

    Like Hubpages, they encourage good community behavior and punish those who do not engage the community except to promote thier own stuff
