    Ok, I know we are allowed to link to other hubs and it's good to do that. But, are we allowed to link to our own hubs? I'm confused by the description provided by hubpages.

    For example, if I post a hub and I have a hub that I think is similar and may interest readers, I create a link at the end of my article saying something along the lines of "other articles that may be of interest" and then I put a link and brief description of my hub.

    Is that allowed? Because I've now noticed that at the very bottom of the page it also lists other articles of mine in the same category...

    None of my hubs were flagged, but here is the content in question that confuses me from the help page:

    "#5. My hub was flagged as overly promotional, what does that mean?

    Purely promotional offers and Hubs designed only to promote other sites or businesses are not allowed. In particular, the following actions are likely to get your hubs flagged:

        * linking repeatedly to the same site within a hub or across many hubs
        * including links to a page that contains largely the same content as your hub
        * linking to products or services unrelated to a Hub's content"

    I think, you may do so by groups the similar hubs together. Group help reader navigate your hubs in one group.

    I don't understand what part of that you don't understand.

    Mostly, I don't understand

        "* linking repeatedly to the same site within a hub or across many hubs"

    If I have 3 different hubs that are all linking back to each other - is that not allowed? Or does that refer to linking to external sites (i.e. promotional, blog, etc) and not hubs?

    I understand the groups and have been using them to group my hubs. Should I just do it that way? It's just that the group links show all the way at the end as opposed to closer to the end of the article where I feel I am less likely to lose the reader.

    If you build Hubs that seem to have the sole function of promoting an online business or singular resource, you're probably going to see your HubScore tank or have some Hubs get flagged for review.

    Since HubPages is a free resource and was created with the intention of people sharing information, they don't want people to just build tons of "landing pages" that just drive traffic to off-HubPages commercial sites.
