About Advertising with Hubs.
I am a newbee and was interested in Fuel Fireplaces. I found several by Hubber SOOTHING COMPANY and am now intrigued. Most of its hubs present pure advertising for products. Therefore my question: Is this a common practice here and what are the limits? One Hub as an example: http://soothingcompany.hubpages.com/hub … -Fireplace
Sorry SOOTHING COMPANY, no offense meant, but its really bothering me.... Anyone answer that question. Thank you sooo much :-))
You'll probably find now that it's been pointed out that hub and other like it may be removed. Hubs are like articles designed to give information and enlighten people. If then the people find your stuff interesting they will usually follow your link/s. Throwing a blatant ad at someone usually gets ignored and the person bounces off the page
The guidelines are pretty clear. Purely promotional hubs are not acceptable.
It's important that you report Hubs which are nothing but a big ad for something. It cheapens the community when Hubpages is used as nothing but free advertising. Youtube can be used that way, but Hubpages isn't meant to be that kind of venue.
I have seen several like this as I Hop through Hubs. I have also seen Hubs which are offensive because they are only thinly disguised porn. I have also see Hubs that contain nothing but stolen pictures from the Internet--no text, no content.
These are all types of Hubs which need to be reported for review by the moderators. If we take this proactive stance, we can keep Hubpages for the real Hubbers.
You can promote with Hubpages, but you may not simply Advertise.

On the 18th May, my hub was flagged for being over promotional.I removed some links of so called prohibited sites (affiliate links) and left in a very useful link to my article on Ezine Articles and a Squidoo lens of mine which is also very informative on the same subject. I submitted the hub for...

If 50 Hubs Can Earn You $1 Per Day, Is It Logical 5000 Hubs Can Earn You $100 Per Day?

I just saw a hub that is purely an advert. I have gone through the help and learning centers trying to find out if this is allowed. There is no useful info on the hub, there are phone numbers to call and they tell exactly what their business is about. The hub is not a review either, it is obvious...

If we flag a hub, does it say which hubber put in the flag, or is it anonymous. I mean, could someone turn around and flag your hub to retaliate? How does it work exactly? Thanks.
