Is it kosher to promote or talk about your own site on hub pages. I have my own site and I am doing the majority OK, all my short stories there. I have a link in my profile but I don’t want to do anything that goes against the hub pages rules. I started the site so I could write without restrictions (such as foul language (and yes, I don’t mean chicken or duck speak) or sexual situations.) Have anyone here promoted themselves or own site using this site.
I am sure there is some legal mumbo-jumbo in a Q&A part of this site I just don’t care enough to look it up.
*note* please keep any response under say 5000 words. Some people try and write War & Peace with every answer.
Also, I am posting this under Freeforum Discussion to allow a general audience to read and type how I am wrong. I realize it should be on a "Getting Help" with or other such forum so don’t post saying that. It just isn’t as helpful as you might think it is.
1. No more than two links to the same website within a single Hub. That one's simple.
2. Links MUST be DIRECTLY relevant to the MAIN subject of the Hub. That may need a little explanation.
Say you are writing about Abraham Lincoln and you mention George Washington. In that Hub, you may link to a webpage about Abraham Lincoln, but you may NOT link to a webpage about George Washington.
So in summary, if you are writing about a subject and you have written a post on your own site which offers relevant and helpful information on that subject, you may link to it (and you must link to that specific post, not to your home page). Otherwise, not.
I think for what I was thinking I would have to make a hub that just feels wrong to me (shoeing in a hub so I can direct people to my site rather than a self-contained hub). Even now I wish I hadn’t started this forum. I hate talking about myself.
No - if you wrote a Hub deliberately to promote your site, it wouldn't be approved, as Christy says. The trick is to write a Hub about a topic which you cover in more detail on your website. Then it becomes a natural link to give the reader helpful information.
I took a quick look at your site - looks like it's mainly fiction, so that makes it hard.
Yea just be sure its not trolling. Here i will help out, what do you do for a living? Do you have a website that actually brings in money? If so what is it? I want to run google webmaster tools on it.. Maybe i can post it on my youtube site and forms. They get about 1/2 million views last year.
Quack, Quack, Quack, oh darn it I’m doing it again.
With some people (not any one reading this) all a person has to do is exist to ruffle feathers. A person can find themselves having to duck a lot a lot of angry posts or be goosed into an argument over nothing. It can leave a person feeling Kentucky Fried.
I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub...
I can't believe what's just happened. One of my hubs was scraped and stolen. No big deal right? Happens all the time and its something that seasoned online authors get used to after a while because hunting thieves down...
Is there a way to include a hyperlink to another website without transfering the user away from Hubpages? In other words, is there a way to force a new window so that the original page is still present?
I submitted a hub about the difference between assertive and aggressive women called "She's such a Bitch: So Why Does He Love Her?" and I can't figure out exactly what's blocking it from publication.The bots...
Hi there,I've been hearing discussions that noindexing hubs (because they are idled) impacts their backlinks in some way, and I'd like to find out if this is true.I've been researching this a bit online and have found...
