When adding a RSS feed way do i get this "Overly Promotional: This Hub excessively promotes another site" when i only have one link to a website?
HubPages does not allow RSS feeds that point to the same site as links within the body of the hub (ie text and link capsules). For more info, see http://hubpages.com/hub/Overly-Promotional
Well it would be nice if hubpages let people know the rules before submitting, the only time i could find them is after getting a warning.
The FAQ does do a nice job of letting people know what the rules are, too.

A lens of mine that was transferred to HubPages was identified as having too many affiliate links. I cleared out all the links except one affiliate link and one link to Wikipedia. The only other links on the page are all the ads that HubPages loads up the header, footer, and sidebar...
