    I've been banned from the forums on for putting links to hubpages on there. So if you put links anywhere, make sure its not on Lulu.

        I haven't heard back from the webmaster yet as to the exact offence but reading the rules , you are not supposed to self promote for gain. What I did was to tell people they could earn a few quid by visiting hubpages and signing up, so I wasn't self promoting.

          If you used your referral tracker, that would count as promoting for personal gain.  Or if you linked to your own Hubs rather than just sending them to

            That must be it, then I used the tracker. Thanks Marisa

      Why were you putting your links on there in the first place?  Take this as a lesson - don't post links on forums anywhere, unless there's a good reason for doing so.

    I never heard of LuLu until now... just did a search there for HubPages and got 4 hits. One entry had a complete hubPages link in it. The whole site looks to be totally commercial, a place for authors to plug their books.

      Lulu is a self publishing site for Books and Photo Books in pre programed template format.; you make an account, select your format, build your book as a file in word, or works or other word processor applications it accepts and convert it to and up load it as a DTL formated file, into your account area.

      Then make your cover from given formats and colors, select a sales price for it, and publish it. Then you can put it in their company store site for sale. They take a % of each book sold for publishing costs.

      You can link to Lulu from you own personal site. Like if you are promoting your own book from your own site, or affiliating with them, using links to connect customers, but not from Hub pages, as it is not your own personal site. Thats probably why you got banned?

    I thought lulu was a book selling platform also hmm but I don't usually post Hub urls in forums unless related to the topic at hand or just tell them to click on my HP url in my profile or by private message.
