Do I risk having my hub flagged as overly commercial if I write about a product I like?
Do I risk having my hub flagged as "overly commercial" if I write a hub about a product that I like, say a lawn mower or a car?
Note that I am not a car salesman nor do I work at a home improvement store.
You are allowed to write product reviews. You cannot have more than two links to any one website within your hub.
You are always allowed to write product reviews as its kind of affiliate marketing like Ebay or Amazon products, but you need to make sure that you don't include more than two links aiming to the same site, you definitely added more than two it happened to me once therefore the warning says overly which means more than allowed. its easy to solve this just remove the extra links and warning will go away.

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in the poetry section.

I'm a bit confused about a flag on one of my book reviews...it was flagged as overly promotional today and unpublished, yet neither of the reasons posted for an overly promotional flag apply. There are no outbound links, just my eBay and Amazon capsules and then two links to hubs (one mine, one...
