    I only have had this warning come up on one post and I was talking specifically about one single companies service in my hub.  I made a few adjustments to include others as options on the market but kept the focus about the one company and it was fine with no warning.  Not sure what the exact reason I received it for but that was my thinking cause of the adjustment I made that removed the warning.

    Normally it is an attribute given to hubs that promote a product ,service etc. This can be due to many links to the same product or company.

    "Commercial"-- would be something that would promote a product or service similar to an advertisement seeking financial gains from writing the hub, rather than just writing an article to report facts and educate the public.

    It is simply asking you if you would like to commercialize your hub by showing ads or not. Many hubbers "out there" don't always show ads on their hubs related to spirituality, their religion, gods and their own views.
    If you don't want to show ads in your hub, then uncheck the button.,,!!

    It means you have an affiliate link somewhere on your hub and hubpages will not allow this.
