      I read this and actually this is why I asked because their is but one paragraph about it..

      What does commercial mean?
      Commercial hubs are required to have an ad level setting of High. Your hub is considered to be commercial if it meets any of these conditions.

      it is monetized through a non-hubpages affiliate mechanism
      it contains links to other commercial sites
      it promotes a for profit business, especially a business that you have an interest in

      but it seems confusing as to what is allowed and why commercial sites are allowed and what is spam? care to endulge me with some insight?

    If you're hoping to make money from the Hub itself, or from the site you're linking to, then it's commercial.

    A persons opinion of spam can be subjective. We know that the junk mail that we didn't ask for in our email inboxes is spam, but spam can be other things too. So I won't try and cover them in one forum post. But copy and pasted sales pitches for affiliate links may be deemed as spam by the HubPages spam filters. Though if a person were to write an original review on the same product or service it may not be considered to be spam.

    So far the only thing I can think of that has been published at HubPages that can't be classified as commercial are original poems. With no outbound links.

    But that's just the opinion of a fellow Hub Author.
