    The review would be about one app specifically but would like to put the referral link in there in case I do get people to sign up.

      If you are referring readers to Hubpages =yes you can add a referral link. If you are sending people off of Hubpages -no you cannot. That would be self promotion and will get your article flagged.

        Galleryofgrace, you've fallen for a myth.  It's fake news.

        It's not true that HubPages dislikes links.  HubPages loves links if they are relevant to the main topic of the Hub, and helpful to the reader.   Just take a look at the articles on HealDove and notice how many links they have. 

        People think HubPages dislikes links because they've had a few links snipped, but those links probably didn't meet the above criteria.

        Adding an affiliate link is not self-promotion.  Self-promotion is when you add a link to your own website or to your own business.

    If you write it as a genuine, unbiased review, pointing out the pro's and con's (and preferably comparing it with some alternatives)  then yes, you should be able to include the referral link.
