Hi, everyone. I get most of my views and earnings from LevelSkip and almost all of my video game articles have been moved there. I was thinking of writing one for a really awesome game I'm playing now that goes "Reasons you should buy (this game)", however, I'm a bit worried it might be rejected for being overly promotional. I don't really want it to be an advertisement for the game, I just think it's relatively unknown and would help people decide whether to get it or not. What do you think? Any advice is appreciated!
I say give it a shot. You are the video game blogger on this site, as far as I'm concerned. You didn't create the game, so I think it would be strange if they shut down your article for being overly promotional. Has it happened to you before? I thought that only happens when you have too many Amazon links/ads.
Poppyr, that's what I'm saying. Unless it's a product you own, or you have wayyy too many Amazon links, you should be fine.
poppyr, Im on board with what you said. On Cyber Monday itself, my Levelskip article got almost 800 views. It was met with criticism, as many people on Reddit called this article a "Buzzfeed" article. That's right, I promoted the levelskip article on reddit.
Yup, that’s how you get more views. Reddit’s a good place to go and if you find the right audience you can get a nice boost, as I’m sure you know.
What subreddit(s) did you post to if you don't mind me asking. Some subreddits have such intimidating posting guidelines and rules I am afraid to post any of my work.
Haha the post I made was actually frozen for apparently being in the wrong subreddit, but a couple of people saw it and clicked it first Reddit is super strict with posting guidelines isn’t it
Gaming. 17.2 million subscribers in here.
This sounds like a great idea to me. It is something I have thought of doing in the future myself. I am also mostly targeting LevelSkip as I love to write about video games as well.
I imagine as long as you are not promoting your own game and the article doesn't sound like you only want to sell the game you should be fine. I recently went over the LevelSkip editorial guidelines as I want more of my stuff to be on there. It seems as long as you offer some kind of personal perspective they are fine with what you write.
You are great at doing this considering the great work you already have on LevelSkip. You should be fine.
I wrote a hub about why trapeze lovers should see a particular documentary, noted in the title, and I have an Amazon capsule. It's been published for months; no problems. So ... why not?
It's only overly promotional if you're promoting yourself. Being a genuinely enthusiastic fan is ok

Someone recently stated that there are limits to how much you can link to your own hubs. Does anybody know the limitations?

Hi Hubbers,This is the first time that I've had one of my hubs not featured so quite disappointed. I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process on my Hub 10 Reasons You Should Move to Ireland. The feedback email that I received stated that I should remove the links to my website....

Wouldn't it be nice if some explanation about the hub came with the above mentioned notices. All you get is the general notice that you hub is overly promotional or substandard and it needs to be fixed. If it is re-submitted and is not fixed properly you could be banned from...

My Take on Hub Pages. It's alright for them to take our content and just add whatever type of adds they want. Why? Because when someone reads ""our content"" and clicks on one of these adds, Hub Pages makes money. Yes you say, they share it with us. The Truth! Hub...
